can one take too much magnesium?
I take St. John's Wort for depression and a few months ago, started taking a b-complex vitamin and magnesium supplement as well because I was told that many people who suffer from depression are often deficient in b-12, folic acid and magnesium. Right now, I'm reevaluating what vitamins and take and if they are really necessary. Is it okay to take magnesium not knowing if you are actually deficient in it? The one I take is called magnesium with chelated zinc. The bottle says take 3 a day (400mg), I only take 1. Can this have any negative impact on me at all?
Also, I take an acidophilus tablet every day, (again, not even the dosage recommended on the bottle - I take one, the bottle says take two per day, each serving contains 40 million live cells). Is there any reason I shouldn't be taking this? I haven't experienced any negative side effects since I started taking these vitamins. I just feel like I should be double-checking that this is all okay. Thank you.
