    Magnesium Deficiency and Constipation

    We in the US may not be getting enough Mg and Ca from our water. See:

    While I do not suffer from constipation I think a lack of magnesium may be causing leg cramps for me.

    One of the few supps I actually use! Mag, potassium and D3. Keeps the leg cramps away, at long last!

    Interesting, I once years ago had a Doctor tell me that there wasn't so much a calcium deficiency in our diets as a lack of Magnesium. She had taken a continuing education on the topic and when she came back she started testing her Patients for hypomagnesemia and found that almost none came back normal.

    I use magnesium oil (spray), it is supposed to increase DHEA levels absorbed through the skin. I can spray it behind the knee and it reduces/removes any "restless" leg feeling. Burns slightly.

    By self experiment, I've now found that 1600 mg of Mg cures my constipation. But I think this must be too much. Now I need to find out how to balance maybe 1200mg Mg with other minerals and possibly vitamins. Maybe I've been seriously defficient in Mg for most of my life. I've noticed that uping the Mg has also eliminated muscle shaking in my fingers. I used to play the paino a lot, and now I don't have the same control over my fingers. With the increased Mg, my hands respond much better.

    No other chemicals seem to be needed for Mg absorbtion. Magnesium Chloride is the best absorbed. Don't eat nuts (phytates) close in time to taking MgCl or eating.

    Mg sprays and oils are good for absorbtion but will do least to reduce IBS.

    The above is what my reading has produced. If I've got it wrong, please let me know. I was amazed to find that I have all the symptons of Mg deficiency, and some I've had all my life.
    1.Insulin resistance.
    2.Constipation.
    3.Migraines.
    4.Restless leg syndrome.
    5.Cramping.
    6.Hypertension.
    7.Fibromyalgia.
