Posted by: jayney-O (Guest), Sunday, July 30, 2006, 9:00pm
I find myself continuing to take magnesium at night, although I have knocked of taking calcium since I had a kidney stone......then in a post on hydration someone (saverain?) mentioned  it is not good to take mag without cal......
plus I have a relatively high level of cal in my blood. That could mean its is being drawn out of my bones....hope not, I believe I have passed the stone and am considering taking cal again.....any thoughts?

Hi jayney,

Here is a thread from not too long ago on your exact question.  Also, if you use the search function for "magnesium" you will probably turn up some more info.

Good luck!

hmmmmmm, thank you Whimsical, but it seems to be a very individual  thing.... when I read that you should not take mag wthout cal, I wondered why, but  then there's a certain common sense logic to it.

jayney-O, what kind of calcium were you taking?
When I had a hair analysis done, my cal was sky high. Not good because my body was not properly absorbing and utilizing. Not sure if there is a dif between blood/hair tests re: the mineral.
Here's a website I found re: minerals:

cal citrate, but I don't know if that was the culprit...and thanks for the interesting link.

welcome  ;)  on the link. :-)
calcium citrate is the best if you can't get the plant derived. As you may have gathered, if it's plant derived it's ok to take w/ mag.   If not, they compete for absorption. I believe that was the final "decison". HA!!  :-)  Soooo............ don't really know either, if this is relevant. Still wondering on whether the blood/hair  tests are done in the same manner and would produce the same results  or if different somehow.
