Magnesium glycinate supplement - any noticeable benefits?

Trying to rehab my knee. Was told Magnesium powder supplement would help joint pain and muscle flexibility. Anyone find benefits from taking this or is it snake oil?

I take magnesium bisglycinate. It is not snake oil. I have reduced joint pain, I take 200 mg in the morning and at night. My sleep is also improved.

I had back pain and tried it. Didn't make any difference after 2 months of daily use.

Supplemental magnesium is overrated. Whatever it is you’re trying to cure or heal with it, apple cider vinegar will do the job much better. Get the pills off Amazon if you don’t want to drink it. After a month of taking them everyday, you’ll start to feel like a completely different person.

Hyland's Leg Cramps on Amazon has been recommended since the early 1960's for more than just cramps. Read the ingredients. It's cheap too.

I am giving the magnesium a try for a month in combo with physio and will see if I have reduced knee pain. Thanks for the other suggestions I will research them.

my dog takes glucosamine for knee hip pain and issues.

What [R6], said. I take 2,000 mg glucosamine daily for my knees. Three weeks ago I royally hosed my knees when I was walking up pedestrian steps to a bridge over Hwy 99 in Seattle. My legs literally gave out as I was walking and I was weirding out. And I still had quite a climb. I am grateful I didn't blow my kneecaps but I can still feel the joints in and around my knees conspiring to send me a restraining order. I think the only thing that saved me was for years I did a roundtrip bike ride of 30 miles.

I've been raking glucosamine for years and haven't noticed any pain relief. I keep hoping it will work...but doesn't look like it.

I also do not have as many foot, toe, and calf cramps on winter nights as my legs make contact with the chilled sheets. I take 5000-10000IU of Vitamin D3 a day, for which magnesium (glycinate) is a recommended accessory supplement

I’ve taken magnesium glycine test supplements for months and have noticed zero effect. However, because we don’t usually get enough from diet alone and most people are low (and half of people with migraines are low in Magnesium, and I have a history of migraines), I’ve continued to take it as a nutritional supplement.

But I tend to think it’s most likely snake oil like most supplements.

R3 and R4 what is/are the supposed benefit(s) of apple cider vinegar and the Hyland stuff?
