    Well I was in a heat wave so I was drinking several litres of mineral water a day. I only bought the Slovenian water because the local supermarket had sold out of San Pellegrino! I drank about a litre of it one day and my bowels told me I was overdosing. I'd say it's a healthy cure for constipation.

    The extra magnesium seemed to help my energy levels tho - I didn't see the temperature outdoors fall below 28C during the last 6 days of the holiday, and it was 34-38 C throughout most of the day. I was walking at least 10 km each day sightseeing, so felt I should make extra effort to get plenty of electrolytes.

    I'm inclined to agree with Jack Kruse, that generally most of us can't get enough magnesium.
