    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?

    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.

    I know this is reviving an old thread but has anyone ever been concerned about long term overdose?

    I've been taking an extra 100% magnesium a xouple times a week in the form of citrate for the last couple years. Don't get much calcium and I see my nutritional calculator showing well over 100% intake daily without the supplement. I'm a bit concerned I have overdosed and this is bad for my organs in the long run. Anyone have any advice on this?

    my understanding is there is no possible way to overdoes on magnesium unless you have impaired kidney function. it's a water-soluble mineral.

    for the most part the rda's are bunk.

    if you're eating primal you probably are getting more calcium than you think.

    i have been taking daily magnesium citrate 4+ years and feel great.

    Plus soils are magnesium depleted these days so the amounts listed as being in various foods are probably wrong unless they are fortified.

    I have heard of people suffering cardiac arrest when receiving 20 grams of magnesium sulfate intravenously, which would contain about 4 grams of magnesium. The RDA is 0.4 grams. I doubt you're getting close to 10 times the recommended dose.
