calcium/magneisium = CONSTIPATION?
As I posted on my long anxiety note, I have tried taking a mag/calcium supplement in the form of a liquid. It is 600 calcium and 300 mag, which is right for my sz-5'0", 105lbs.
I took it before bed to help me sleep and for other symptoms for 4 days, but it constipated me. I have enough trouble with that anyway....[especially the week before my period], so I stopped.
I also bought the fish oil, but haven't started taking it. Any one else have this side effect with calcium/mag. and if so, what do you do for it?
On another note, my nails, which have always been great, are breaking left and right [pardon the pun]. Does any one have a solution? I hate to take a bunch of supplements, but my one-a-day essential is no longer doin the trick.Any good vitamin suggestions?
Thanks so much!
