Re: Magnesium and diarrhea--Mag=the cause?
Magnesium is needed by everyone.
Every cell in your body contains magnesium and 66% is in your bones.
Many --- Many foods have magnesium yet it is estimated 75% of people are deficient.
I suggest you read the book -- " The Miricle of Magnesium by Dr Carolyn Dean, MD ND.
I have found the type magnesium supplement that is best absorbed and causes less gastro problems is the Chelated type. It is double bonded to a protein amino acid (glycinate) and is readily absorbed brcause it is smaller.
I like and use the Carlson and Solgar brands.
