Title: Magnesium
Post by: BlueTiger on December 27, 2013, 07:35:37 PM
Okay, here we go:  This thread can be whatever we want it to be!  Just think...

I started this post on an earlier thread on this board (If enough folks read than we will copy and paste for this "Magnesium" Topic.


I have consciously relied on Magnesium in many forms over the last few years (i.e. Stearate, Oxide, whole food sourced....epsom salt baths, nature made is cheap, I think oxide is the active ingredient in laxatives...).  Anyway, they the point being, Ma saturation is key to a healthy and happy existence.  It has over 1000 roles in the body that we know about.....that we know about! 

Since it competes with calcium for absorption, I have been relying on a higher dose of Ma at night, since I have to have my calcium in the AM.  It's a better cycle and you get more bang for your buck, IMHO.  I am confused as to how there are still products on the market that are 3 minerals supplements, where calcium and Magnesium are 2 of the 3 (I think zinc being the 3rd).  This would theoretically be a waste of sorts.

Thought this was worth sharing.....especially regarding the Ma orotate.  However, he does mention how Ca is needed to absorb Ma, so there is a relationship there that is just not quite understood, I think...

Has anyone tried anything in orotate form?  If so, please share experiences....

I've taken the majority of kinds of magnesium in a multivitamin supplement, now there's a new version called:


which has some novel neuro-repairative effects in people with Alzheimer.

Hey thanks bluetiger for this topic.
Im trying to eat as good as possible and the nutritional universe is more complicated than i thought ("just eat healthy")
Had no idea magnesium competes with calcium. Useful stuff.
