I'm glad this came up, because what you said about the magnesium is making me think. For some time now, the Magnesium Malate I have on hand has showed a no for me, and I thought it must be because of something in the doctrine that I didn't need it anymore. I have the Source Naturals, and didn't reorder AOR because it's not testing as yes for me either.
Now that I'm checking what you said, it is a definite yes with me.
"Doctrine removes bound positive charge Mag compounds"
What I'm getting for myself, is that it would be best for me to let the doctrine continue to remove the toxic magnesium compounds, and not supplement with more magnesium (until, or unless testing indicates it). Best not to assume everyone automatically "needs" magnesium as I had thought before.
The hair results also say:
"Some factors that may contribute to high tissue magnesium levels (other than excessive magnesium intake), include:
--low protein intake
-vitamin E deficiency
--Low adrenal activity
--Vitamin B6 deficiency
--Elevated tissue calcium
--Low thyroid function (which they are also saying B-1 (benfotiamine) is needed for because it increases the effectiveness of thyroid hormone thyroxine)
So it doesn't get lost in the thread (reposting) Thanks for this, it's giving me food for thought.

This is why there is a lot of bound toxic Mag left inside the body. There usually is a homeopathic for this kind of stuff but Mag Met doesn't seem to be readily available. http://abchomeopathy.com/r.php/Mgmt
Mag Malate is best for ATP so protecting Mag with Malic Acid appears a valid way to supplement no matter what.
