Quoted from meh206
Has anyone ever had a problem with their legs aching from taking magnesium? A couple of months after starting magnesium my legs started aching at night after I had been in bed for  several hours.  


I am not familiar with this experience.

I do know that there it is important to balance mineral consumprition.

If you need to keep the amount of Magnesium fixed,
you could adjust the amount of calcium and potassium
you take and see if this affected your legs.

Do you know how much Magnesium you are taking each day?

If you are supplementing potassium, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus,
the daily dose might be helpful to know.

Alternatively you could measure
blood level of:sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and chloride
and see if any are off.

Here are some sort of normal ranges for blood serum measurements:

Sodium 135-148 mmol/L
Potassium 3.5-5.5 mmol/L
Chloride 96-109 mmol/L
Calcium 8.5 - 10.6 mg/dL
Phosphorus 2.5-4.5mg/dL
Magnesium 1.8 -3.0mg/dL

we say: aching might occure when lacking or mg or ca. means
ca. - you might get cramps instantly when you move !!!! and magnesium when you are at rest !!!!!

an acknowledged rule of all kind of med. trainers   ........

So Lola.. I got the Magnesium Oxide and it's in a powder form and it says to do 1/4 tsp once a day which amounts to 400 mg.

Is this about right?  I am going to treat it like my other supp's which I take everyday, except weekends.

I do also do the mag. foot soak for 20 min 3 times a week...

supposedly, loose stools is a good indicative of how much magnesium you should use.

try that amount you mention, and gradually up or down, depending......

What about magnesium for kids (best dosage/form)? My 2-1/2 year old is a B and LOVES her dairy and I can only impose recommended portions on her so much--the kid's scrawny so I don't want to discourage eating even if what she wants isn't exactly what I'd like to feed her.

Anyway, since she's in daycare, she gets colds all the time and usually passes them to me. I've started taking magnesium asporotate (sp?), about 400 mg a day, since I read that a calcium/magnesium imbalance can lower immunity in Bs. Since my daughter weighs about 1/5 of an average adult female, should I give her 1/5 of my dose? Any reason why this form of magnesium would be bad for a child? Has anyone ever, say, sprinkled the capsule contents on food for a child to take? I don't know if she'd swallow a capsule.

kate is that mg-orotate & mg-aspartate

For your child I'd go for children's dosages but also go for a multivit-multimineral.... better (as a form of formula )

It's definitely mg-aps..something. She does take a children's multi but it has calcium too so I'd be afraid she'd still have an imbalance.

I keep forgetting to soak my feet.  I've done that only three times, now.   But, at night I do spray the mag chloride in diluted form on my buttocks and thighs, let dry, then hop into bed.  I sleep just great!

Okay, here's the description of my mg supplement from Solaray:

"Solaray Magnesium Asporotate consists of three different forms of Magnesium: Magnesium Aspartate, Magnesium Citrate and Magnesium Orotate. Aspartic Acid, Citric Acid, and Orotic Acid have been combined for a natural chelation process. Our superior formula derives its Orotic Acid from a special delactosed whey protein concentrate. This product contains none of the yeast or soy commonly found in full range amino acid chelates."

Any reason a toddler shouldn't have this? I checked her multi-vitamin and it provides 13% RDA of both calcium and magnesium. She'll eat all the dairy I'll allow but she's not a big fan of or can't have most of the better food sources of magnesium (occasionally eats spinach, salmon and halibut which are "very good" or "excellent" sources -- loves broccoli and some of the "good" sources). So I'm worried that the multi won't give her the balance she needs.

I mentioned the other day that I ate goat yogurt with a corn derivative in it..and as a result a little trouble in the regularity department.     A friend of mine reccommended magnesium citramate to get things moving, but the ingredients are magnesium (as Magnesium Citrate-Malate) and Malic Acid (approximately from Magenesium Citrate-Malate).  I was wondering, however, if the malic acid could be derived from corn even though it says its from magnesium citrate-malate.  I don't want to start a vicious cycle of consuming corn..any thoughts?

I've been applying Magnesium oil for about 3 weeks now. It has taken care of the pain on my little bunion on my big toe, freckles aka age spots , which have faded considerably, pimples which sprout here and there pre-periods are nipped in the bud, MIL's elbow & knee joint pain, hubby's rashes, and my occassional restless leg. It tastes godawful but I would like to try it on occassions when I'm obliged to eat the customary birthday cake. It always jams my sysytem the next day-the cake, that is. But I tried a teaspoon of mag oil, and holy cow, arrrgh! my throat burned. And nothing "significant" happened the next morning.

Suffice to say that Magnesium oil is a miracle! Thanks for the recommendation!!

Mg oil doing nothing for my freckles, nor for greying hair so far [2 1/2 months], but taking 20 drops directly on the tongue is no problem at all.

I started taking 400 mg of mag. capsule and started waking up at night with really dry mouth. Had to get up several times to drink water. I stopped taking the supplement and this problem went away.
Maybe I should take the supplement early in the day - possible mid morning- and drink water all day.

Has anyone else experienced a reaction with magnesium?

I red that it's better if you eat Mg in a different time than the Ca. I take Ca in the morning with C, and Mg in the evening to sleep well.

Hi Lola... have you ever heard of Magnesium giving a person a sort of brain fog headache?  We were taking it in the morning in our juice and I'd end up with a groggy achy brain.

Now we take it before bed and hubby loves it because it puts him to sleep.  Me too but again, I wake up with that achy brain.  

Maybe I should cut back?  We are doing 400 mg of Magnesium Oxide in water before sleep.

I just went google searching and found this really great thread on Magnesium... all the different types, etc.

I take a tsp of mag chloride straight and wash it down with water before going to bed.....it tastes horrible but i do not mind that, just like fenugreek, I also take it straight and the taste is yeachhhhh......
a little goes a long way.....take a bit less, and see how that works for you.

thanks for the suggestions. I take 200mg at night. Helps with sleep and I do the BTD and my IBS symptoms went away however I have permanent damage because mine was very severe for several years.  I ignored myself for too long. I'm much better now because of this diet.  It's the only information that has ever helped me besides Citrucel.

Since I have loose stools, I will cut back to 100mg at night or add calcium as suggested. My mag. is elemental mag from reacted mag aspartate.  I've tried the others and the same thing has happened.  This is the one that's better than the others.

If I take more than 300 mg, it triggers a migraine..I kind of attribute this to taking a lot of vitamins in the 80's..I think I caused an intolerance.

I take 100 mg at night. I agree, it helps with sleep.
