Yup.  More damning evidence against Journey.  Oops.  And folks?  This isn’t good.

This comes from a paper about magnesium chelation.

The magnesium chelate used is magnesium diglycinate.  The supporting documentation that Albion uses is a study that compares it to magnesium oxide in patients with ileal resection, mostly due to Crohn’s disease.

So.  Journey Vitamins.  Ferrochel Iron Bisglycinate Chelate.  Been looking for studies NOT done by Albion.

Found a study.  Keep in mind this is not exactly the same as relating to us (but maybe sorta relevant.. will explain).  Here we go.

Ferrus Calcium Citrate is Absorbed Better Than Iron Bisglycinate in Patients with Crohn’s Disease, but Not in Healthy Controls. DIGESTIVE DISEASES AND SCIENCES, Volume 51, Number 5, 942-945, DOI: 10.1007/s10620-005-9036-6
