Does Magnesium Citrate interfer with Copper Absorption?

Rossana ·
I would like to ask Skin Biology an opinion about Magnesium Citrate supplements. I have been taking Magnesium Citrate powder for years. It is the only magnesium form that I know of that is tasteless and I prefer powders to pills. I typically sprinkle 1 teaspoon of magnesium citrate on a meal, once or twice a day. 1 tsp = 3325 mg Magnesium Citrate = 540 mg elemental Magnesium. I recently read some references that magnesium, in the form of magnesium citrate, interferes with copper absorption...

Dear Rossana, I see no problem with this. Copper and magnesium have very different binding affinities. There is great confusion about copper in the blood. Ceruloplasmin is an anti-oxidant and often high in diseases. But copper 2+ from the diet is taken up by albumin for transport to the cells. Best wishes, Loren Pickart
