    I do not take any supplements besides gelatin and FCLO/HVBO from green pastures but have been looking into getting more magnesium. I purchased "salt" from the dead sea (imported from Israel) that is about 1/3rd magnesiun chloride. I am mixing one pound of this in hot bath water and soaking in it for about 15 minutes. I know the only real way to ascertain how much magnesium is being absorbed is to test before, after, and during but are there any general guidelines on how much magnesium is likely to be absorbed in this manner?

        Please help. Started having anxiety and insomnia about three years ago. Got put on so many medications that I can't even remember how many. I have researched and researched and today I found this. This has to be my problem. I totally don't eat heathy and sometimes don't eat at all. I don't have all the signs of a deficiency but I have most of them. I weigh 180 pds and losing. What magnesium should I take and how much? Is there other supplements I can be taking to help with my severe insomnia and anxiety? I'm very desperate and for the first time in 3 years I see hope from here.

          Too many variables Tony to be honest to accurately determine it. Maybe get a magnesium exa test at the start and three months down the line.

            Magnesium glycinate (Pure encapsulations or designs for health) 800 - 1000 mg at bedtime.

            Look into adrenal fatigue (www.drlam.com) and hypothyroid issues for anxiety and insomnia.

                I think I have very low magnesium because I started having tremors/seizures, but my blood serum levels are normal. I want to take Dr's Best Mag Glycinate while waiting for another test, but is that strong enough/can it get worse?

                  Serum magnesium for most people will show normal levels unless they are really in trouble. The Dr. Best will work and take it based on 200 - 400 mg based on every 50 pounds of body weight.

                    Recommended Forms of Magnesium:
                    Magnesium Glycinate - The most bioavailable form of Magnesium. The extra glycine as an amino acid can help with sleep and provide a calm feeling. This form of magnesium is the least likely to cause loose stools. Taken at Bedtime.
                    Ron regarding Magnesium Glycinate they seem hard to purchase here in Australia and are charging $107 for 180 capsules as i understood it 1 capsule is 120mg so that's around 7 capsules per day as per 800mg etc or have i understood this wrong?

                    Also wondering what your thoughts are about this Australian product Mega Magnesium Powder | Ethical Nutrients

                    But to the right of the page it mentions pyridoxine hydrochloride

                    • Ron what do you think of natural calm (mg citrate in powder form)? I switched from pure encapsulations mg glycinate to natural calm and found it was way more effective, maybe bc its more bioavailable?

                        Hi Ron, I was wondering if you could give me your opinion about Isotonix Magnesium, which contains 200 mg Mag (citrate) 200 mg (glycinate) and 150 mg Potassium (bicarbonate)? I have been taking this for about a month now because of its quick absorption rate, but wonder what your thoughts are. I have hypercalcemia, hyperparathyroidism and was reading that I should be taking the following co-factors as well:

                        Magnesium 400-1200 mg per day
                        High amounts of Iodine (amounts not listed... says to consult an iodine expert)
                        Selenium 200 400 mcg per day
                        Vitamin C 3,000 10,000 mg per day
                        Vitamins B2/B3 (ATP CoFactors) 100 mg riboflavin and 500 mg no flush niacin, inositol hexanicotinate form, 1-2x per day
                        Unrefined Salt (Celtic) 1/2 tsp. or more per day

                        Thanks for all you previous and future info!

                        • Thanks, Ron. I have been taking magnesium citrate. I think maybe it was recommended at some point because I tend to have kidney stones.
