No.: Magnesium chloride is a supplement that primarily provides magnesium to the body. This essential nutritional mineral is critical to many biological processes. However, magnesium chloride is not appropriate for all individuals. It can adversely interact with some medications and is also not advised for individuals with kidney problems.
