    Has anyone tried magnesium oil (mg chloride) or mg chloride bath soaks instead?

    I have heard such good things about magnesium, and although I eat a good diet I have other lingering issues that I think would be improved with magnesium possibly.....

    Does anyone take a split dose during the day? Or just a whole dose at night?
    I agree with the salts idea, for absorbtion - Epsom salts are great

    I was having sporadic muscle twitching and could not identify the cause. After some online research, I decided to try supplementing with magnesium. I bought the basic 500mg from GNC (I'm not even sure what type of magnesium it is) and take 1 pill every morning. The twitching has seemed to completely resolve. Perhaps placebo effect but its working so I'll continue to take it. It's the only supplement/pill/vitamin I take.

    Side effect of mg is in the other direction, diarrhea.

    not all forms of magnesium are absorbed equally as well by the body, but yeah, it more commonly may have a laxative effect. what kind are you taking?
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    Thanks.
    I know it usually makes for easier BMs, that's why I started taking it but it doesn't really help me so far. I didn't take them for the last couple days and my BMs and discomfort improved. Not sure if it's related to the MG or if it's the crap food I had this last weekend which seems to help my BMs as well, (fries, crap oil asian etc all seems to help) or none of the two.

    I take citrate around 500mg spread throughout the day, high dosages give me palpitations / anxiety. Tried chelated but that gives me maaajooor headaches.
