I recently started to do research on Magnesium.
I have long believed it was an important mineral and have been taking magnesium supplements on and off for quite a few years now.
I first started taking Chelated Magnesium based on my nutritionists suggestions and it seemed to be a part of my overall health plan and I had success with that.
I did have a lot of improvements but as it was part of an overall nutritional program i did not see the direct effects of magnesium supplementation.
Recently however I started to feel more aches and pains and decided it was time to look up magnesium on the internet.
I was immediately drawn to the works of Dr. Russsel Blaylock and Dr. Carolyn Dean and soon was getting enthusiastic about what magnesium might do for me.
So I eventually ordered 2 different kinds – Jigsaw Magnesium with SRT (time release) and Natural Calm.
I’ve had problems in the past with diarehea when taking magnesium so I started off slowly.
Originally I was taking 1 capsule daily of the jigsaw and after a couple of days worked up to 2 capsules once daily. Soon I will try the 2 capsules twice daily.
I then added in a teaspoon of Natural Calm in the afternoon each day.
I will say I was sleeping better than ever! Immediate improvement in my sleeping habits. Went to bed earlier and slept longer with fewer interruptions. A few mornings I woke up invigorated and feeling ready to go. I haven’t been that up and at it in some time so that was a noticeable improvement.
In general I am sleeping much better now.
I was experiencing looser bowels and did have very soft stools more often.
Before the magnesium I was going 2 times a day most days and after 3 or 4 or even 5 times a day.
I know it’s generally a good idea to be going o the bathroom after every major meal – so this seems to be a plus. I only wonder if the looseness in my stool is causing any absorption issues with the other supplements I am taking. Not sure.
I am sleeping pretty good and all in all I feel great and am glad I am back on magnesium supplements.
The next thing I will do is get some of Dr. Carolyn Dean’s Remag supplement. She is the author of the Magnesium Miracle which is an amazing book.
It sounds like it may be absorbed even better and have less laxative effect than the magnesium I am currently taking. Better absorption would be a big plus so I will try that.
If you have a chance I suggest going to Dr. Dean’s ReMag website and snooping around. Most people are deficient in magnesium and it is possible you may be in need of it!
