Magnesium Oil?

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone has tried magnesium oil as a way to supplement magnesium?

I've seen magnesium supplementation recommended on this board for thyroid problems, and since I really don't eat many of the foods that are high in magnesium, I figured I'd give it a try.

I'm afraid of getting intestinal issues with the oral supplement, so I was curious about the oil.

Thanks

Re: Magnesium Oil?

I just read up on magnesium oil and it sounds interesting. Seems to be better absorbed than the oral suppliments too. Of course if you have constipation with your hypothyroidism the oral magnesium citrate is a good idea too.

I supplement with magnesium oil transdermally. You can do foot soaks, put it in bath water or spray it on your skin. This is an excellent way to get it absorbed. I also supplement orally because I (and I think this applies to most people) need a lot of magnesium. I use a chelated oral mag because I tend toward diarrhea.
