    Magnesium and ..err.. wiping

    Primal Fuel
    Has anyone else taking magnesium noticed the side effect of using like 3x the amount of toilet paper compared to before? It's like... instead of coming out in convenient discrete amounts it now comes out in a continuous extrusion. Sorry if this is gross. I think I'm going to stop taking mag though because this is so annoying, it takes like 5 extra minutes out of my day!

    You can titrate the dosage down a little. I have noticed the similar "results", I have found 1 teaspoon is a "safe" amount for me (M, 36, 190, 15% bf).

    What kind of magnesium are you taking? Some kinds will do this to me, but I've noticed that magnesium glycinate doesn't (so obviously I take that). I also take a relatively small dose, usually 200mg.

    Hi, can I ask why you feel you require magnesium, as a supplement?

    A sign of too much magnesium perhaps? Lower your dose!

    Milk of Mag is magnesium. It's well known for it's laxative effect. Scale back the dose or try a different form of the mineral.

    Duh. Don't know why I forgot to mention that. Yeah, you need a chelated form of magnesium to get the most out of it and the least "problems". Any -ate > any -ide, and glycinate is arguably the best choice of all.
