Journal on depression/anxiety
Currently trying to figure out WTF to eat (for IBS-C).
Ron, do you know anything about Thompson Magnesium malate? I've been using this for about a year now. Definitely makes me very relaxed when taken at bedtime and creates a deeper sleep. Very noticeable deep sleep.
I found it after going to the producer's site in France. The U.S. websites do not do a good job of searching if they do not recognize that it a foreign language. Marin in french stands for sea water - i.e., it is derived from natural magnesium in sea water and therefore probably corresponds to magnesium chloride. Many supplements in France are derived from their mineral rich sea waters which contain the minerals in their natural form, including magnesium, calcium, and the list goes on.
I had originally found the same search results you did, so I went to my French site and it came up easily. Thanks for responding though.
Any info on what magnesium is best for pms and cramps?

Good information in this thread, I'm gonna start supplementing magnesium.
I've been researching glycinate and malate types. Hard to find something that meets the requirements of no fillers, and no asparate, and still have have a large enough mg size that I wouldn't have to take a handful of pills everyday. And not break the bank either.
The ones that >seem< to meet those needs (labels are not always viewable online) are not the brands Ron recommends. Thompson's seems to be such a brand.
Some of the brands recommended seem to come in small doses, such as 120mg, that if I followed his recommendations of higher doses for a few months, then down to 800mg (cause I do weight 200#+), that's a lot of pills. Other recommended brands seem to mix in asparate a lot too.
Thompson's Magnesium Malate has listed as other ingredients : Cellulose, stearic acid, and silica. And one serving is 2 pills for a total of 400mg of magnesium malate.
