Thanks Chloe,
I will try your method.  I need to do something, I have been having insomnia for a long time & sometimes I wake in am, stretch a little & my calf would cramp up PAINFUL & sometimes my toes during the day.

How do you water it down ?  Just in case if I need to.


Hi...

Get a spray bottle and fill half with water and half with magnesium oil...then double the sprays you apply to each part of your body...

Or if you order your product in a spray bottle, dump half out and save it to another
container and just fill the amount you dumped out with water.

I want to jump in here because I have a Magnesium deficiency. I take 800-1000 mg. Magnesium-Glycinate at bedtime for specific symptoms. Mag-Gly is easily absorb-able, and does not cause bowel symptoms.

I react severely to Calcium supplementation. It was recommended to me that if I take Calcium I should have a Magnesium ratio of 3:1 (three Mag:1 Cal). So far that has worked well.

I also take 2000 IU of liquid Vitamin D daily, for a deficiency.

You know- I am so confused about magnesium/mineral oil. Everyone that takes it has great results but me. I have posted this statement before but just had another experience with it so here goes. I become extremely dehydrated and have to drink water constantly, even get up at night and drink, and get constipated instead of a normal bowel movement.

I just bought some deodorant with mineral water which I really like but I'm getting the same symptoms. I guess I will just stop using the deodorant and see if these symptoms clear up. I truly don't understand.

Just had an ah-ha moment.... I recently started taking magnesium (I read that you shouldn't take  calcium alone, but need to take magnesium with it, so I bought some) and since then, I've been having more of a constipation problem and I haven't been sleeping well at all...having weird muscle cramps and lots of twitching, even when I'm not sleeping, but they are most noticable when I'm in bed.  I hadn't put it together before.  I'm going to remove it from my little box of supplements and see what happens.

Hey Plucky,
Keep me posted.  I have been noticing some strange stuff myself.  Seems like when I take mag citrate, I get dry mouth & worse insomnia.  Been having the insomnia problem for over a year.  I started mag supplements to go along w/ the phytocal because it seemed like a really small amt in the phytocal.

if taking magnesium for muscle relaxation, it is best to take it away from food (absorb it faster) and away from calcium
because they compete with each other.  
If taking magnesium along with calcium for bone health, take with food (because the calcium is hard for the body to absorb).

So others have experienced the same symptoms. I thought I was the only one. You have to wonder what makes us have a different reaction than the rest of the people. Our bodies must lack something. I didn't use my mineral deodorant this morning to see if my symptoms go away. I will wait a week or so to see what happens.

Is mineral oil full of magnesium?  I put that stuff in my bathwater once when I was a teenager to soften up my skin.  I ended up with hives all over.  I'm sure it's in some of my skin/hair care products, but I haven't used it straight since.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't you meaning magnesium oil?  You
don't want to ingest mineral oil.  It's a harsh laxative.

Magnesium oil isn't oil at all but feels oily on the skin..It's a way to transdermally
get magnesium into your body without having to take so much orally that you
get diarrhea.  Magnesium oil is actually magnesium chloride.

Read more about it here: http://ezinearticles.com/?Whats-All-the-Buzz-About-Magnesium-Oil?&id=1718838

or google magnesium oil.  Loads of info online.

No, I was responding to BusyBee's comment about "magnesium/mineral oil" wondering if they were the same.  I wouldn't drink the stuff, for sure, especially after breaking out in hives from it

No, they're not the same thing at all.

This is about mineral oil and magnesium oil already has a link for it.

As I drifted off to sleep last night I realized I hadn't had a muscle cramp or twitch in a couple of days, after being off the magnesium for a week.  Yeah!

I was told you absorb the Magnesium better at night   I haven't fully put it to the test yet, but it seems that when I take Calcium Magnesium (2:1) I wake up a few times in the night with stiff knees.. & need to stretch my legs & then the joints "click" & feel better... If I don't take the Cal Mag they seem better...

As others have said, mineral oil doesn't have anything to do with magnesium.  Magnesium used on the skin is called magnesium oil, but it isn't really an oil.  It is a mineral however, and maybe that is the cause of this misunderstanding.

The form these minerals are in, is an important consideration.  All supplements are not created equal, and different people handle different types better than others.

Many calcium supplements are hard to digest.  The Phyto Cal is from seaweed, for example, and is much more easily utilized than calcium from carbonate and bone meal; and for some stomachs calcium citrate can be too acidic.  Experiment with different kinds.

Same with the supplemental magnesium.  I played around with a number of different kinds . . citrate, asporatate, etc.  I end up rotating different ones and I've found a couple of brands of magnesium that work for me.

What kind of symptoms do you have?  I trying to decide if it's the magnesium or the calcium that's causing me a problem.  I take Phytocal & magnesium gycinate.  Have noticed muscle twitching in right back upper shoulder area when relaxed & seems like my joints (hands) feel stiffer @ night.  Also have been waking @ 3 am & lie there for awhile b4 I can fall back asleep.

Muscle twitching and tightness of muscles sound like magnesium deficiency.

Calcium is more related to bones.
Magnesium is more related to soft tissue.

It can help sleep if you are magnesium deficient.  There can be a lot of reasons for insomnia.

I keep increasing my intake of magnesium until loose stools occur.  Then I back off just a little until I have normal stools again.  At present, I am taking about 1,200 mg of calcium via Clear Cal (NAP).  And I taking anywhere between 700 to 900mg magnesium.  

My daughter takes about 1,200 mg Calcium and close to 1,500 mg. magnesium.

The only negative side effect I know of is loose stools when you exceed what your body needs.  More people are deficient than those consuming an excess.  It's worth a try.
