Slow Mag and Ultimag are trusted brand. The "Equivalent to elemental magnesium" should tell you the actual magnesium content irrespective of the salt form used. In general Magnesium Chloride are preferred

I do not agree!

The absorbtion of Magnesuim can be affected by various factors inside the body. For years there were only Magnesium salt tablets available but recently a chelated Magnesium has been developed which is recognised as a protein molecule by the body hence it would be far better absorbed. Brands available are Cipla Mag caps and SlowMag caps.
