    Why is magnesium citrate so much more expensive than magnesium oxide?

    Magnesium citrate is chelated for easier absorption, and assimilation for the body. Chelated means it is bound to a protein. When a mineral such as magnesium is ingested it is usually bound during digestion. So in essence by binding it, it can be used more readily by the body. That is why it is more expensive. Magnesium is a necessary  nutrient and calming to the mind, and a good muscle relaxer as well.
