Some questions and answers about this product, from Doctor's Best.
What does “not buffered” mean that is found on the High Absorption Magnesium?
Doctor’s Best High Absorption Magnesium contains 2000mg of magnesium glycinate/lysinate chelate per serving. Each serving (2 tablets) provides 200mg of elemental magnesium.
This product is not buffered, which means that no additional elemental magnesium is added to increase the elemental value. It is a common practice in the industry to buffer magnesium with poorly absorbable forms such as magnesium oxide. This would result in an overall lower level of bioavailability even if the milligram amount of elemental magnesium was higher.
We feel that by offering 100% chelated magnesium lysinate-glycinate, we are confident that our Doctor’s Best High Absorption Magnesium product is of the highest efficacy on the market.
How much glycinate and lysinate does the High Absorption Magnesium contain?
Each tablet contains 1000mg Magnesium Glycinate/Lysinate Chelate powder, which can covert to approximately 49.3mg Lysine, 457.5mg Glycine and 100mg elemental magnesium.
What is the source of your Magnesium?
The magnesium found in Doctor's Best High Absorption Magnesium originally comes from magnesium oxide. Elemental magnesium is separated out of the magnesium oxide and chelated with the amino acids lysine and glycine. There are no left-over residues of the magnesium oxide in the finished product. It is 100% chelated magnesium lysinate-glycinate.
Each 2 tablets provide: Magnesium (elemental) 200mg (from 2,000 mg magnesium glycinate/lysinate chelate**) Other Ingredients: Microcrystalline cellulose, croscarmellose sodium, magnesium stearate (vegetable source), stearic acid, modified cellulose (coating).

There is 100 mg elemental mag, which is chelated (bound) to 900 mg of "magnesium bis-glycinate/lysinate." This product has a much higher absorption and cellular utilization than non-chelated forms of magnesium.
