Don't know. But Mg is relatively inexpensive. 1000 mg feels more beneficial than 600 mg, so my subjective analysis is that my body is soaking up at least some of the incrementally higher dose.
> I would like to take it all at bedtime but I thought that would not be efficient.
It makes logical sense that a divided dose would be more efficient. However, if I take anywhere close to a therapeutic dose during the day or evening, I get very sleepy. When I take it at bedtime, within a few minutes I can literally feel the Mg working in my brain making me relaxed, calm, and sleepy.
Zzzzzzz. Oops, sorry. I almost fell asleep just thinking about it.
P.S. Please note that I changed the subject line from "Best dosing time for magnesium is bedtime" to the more accurate title of "Best dosing time for Mg *for me* is bedtime"
