That's what I want to use it for.
I've been doing some reading and was surprised to find that magnesium oxide (which is the most common magnesium in supplements) is poorly absorbed. Only about 4% of the elemental magnesium is absorbed.
Magnesium citrate and magnesium gluconate seem to be the best absorbed. Magnesium citrate will cause loose stools. The magnesium gluconate, apparently doesn't cause as much issues with loose stools.
I am going to try a powder form called Natural Calm. From what I've read it has the best absorption percentage.
I hope it helps.
