  • Need advice on magnesium

    I am having trouble tolerating even half a dose (200mg) of magnesium glycinate - the stuff that is supposed to be easier on the tummy. What else can I try?

    Taking it topically in an oil or even in a bath as Epsom salts

      I have read that the magnesium absorbed in Epsom salt baths doesn't stay in your body as long as a magnesium chloride bath. I do a topical spray and find that that works best for me. I also do oral supplements but may have found my limit on those.
      I wish I liked to eat liver.

        Which topical spray do you use? I don't think my Dad is absorbing the glycinate pill I got...

          I get Mag. Cloride salts & make my own Mag oil, just spray on skin daily (usally before I go to bed)

          You can leave 20 min then rinse off.. or just leave on.
          Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

            1 tbs per 1 ounce of oil? If not, what proportions do you mix? What type of oil?

            Sorry for all the questions and thanks.

              I use this but only in the morning; it revs me up too much to take at night.

                  I've tried making magnesium oil and it hasn't worked. I bought a topical oil that I rub on about 1/2 hr before a shower. If I leave it on longer I get itchy. Oil lasts forever and works well. Apparently you absorb as much as you ever will in 1/2hr after application.

                    I use the Life Flo as well. I found it at a local health food store for cheaper than I can get it online.

                      I just mix equal parts salts & boiling water (1 cup + 1 cup) & let disolve, you can dilute it more if thats to strong though.
