    Magnesium Question??

    Hi Everyone
    I am just wondering if anyone can help me.. I have just started taking 500mg a day of magnesium oxide and adding some caltrate calcium to it as well.
    My question is the magnesium oxide~ is that the proper magnesium to take?
    I read there are so many different grades.. and is 500mg too much?
    I am a headache suffer and I did notice my headaches are a little less since starting.. If anyone has some information can you please pass it along to me.. I am a bit confused Thanks in advance boxerlover

    It really depends on your body and what you're taking it for. Are you taking it for digestive reasons? I take it for digestive reasons and I actually take 1500 mg of magnesium oxide and 500 mg of mag citrate.

    For heart rhythm control 500 mg. of magnesium is a good amount.

    If you are taking it for stomach acid neutralization (as in Maalox), you need more.
