Which magnesium is better taurate or glycinate

Hi everyone, I have paroxysmal a fib. I’ve been reading that magnesium is good for people who suffer from a fib. I have read that some people take both magnesium taurate and glycinate or some just take one of them . Can anyone recommend what helps better with a fib and if you can share the brand you take . Thank you. .

I was just googling to find a picture to put here with the different kinds and what they are used for... And I realized how many opinions there are. I take..

glycinate- for heart
threonate- for sleep
oxide - when my digestion is running. little slow if you catch my drift

I recently bought a product called magtech w/ a combo.

I was asking about Mg recently so here is a post that I asked similar questions which may be helpful.

I take Kal Brand Magnesium Orotate 200 mg. That's 200 mg in 4 capsules, so 50 mg in one. I've had people on this forum say the orotate form doesn't absorb well. But I've always liked it. It doesn't cause diarrhea which is nice, too. I've tried many forms of Mag. The glycinate form relaxes me too much, which figures as glycine's a relaxing amino acid. / I'd like to take Mag taurate, but personally have trouble processing the sulfur in taurine. (I've also heard comments recently from general alternative practitioners that they favor calcium and magnesium orotates).

hello everyone. my first post but i have been reading this forum for quite a bit. not sure where i found this it may have been this very forum but i have been using this mag supplement for a year now and it has helped to reduce my pacs and pvcs by 80%. i take two in the morning and two in the evening and have no issue with my gut.
