Re: Too much magnesium?
I take 1200 mg magnesium daily. I have read that the only side effect of taking too much is diarrha, that your body just throws off what you don't need. Normal RDA is about 300-400 mg. but for theraputic purposes you have to take more. I would start with my 1/4 scoop and gradually increase. What the previous poster said about the different forms of magnesium also has merit. You should also make sure that it is water soluble.
Go to the "thyroid disorder" board, to the information archive, page 7, second post, and read about magnesium and all the things it does for you. Very interesting. You won't want to discontinue it.
