Magnesium?: A magnesium deficiency can contribute to constipation and is a very common mineral deficiency. Magnesium has many functions in your body, one of which is to stimulate the parasympatheric nervous system. Low magnesium can therefore increase sympathetic tone and contribute to constipation. There are many forms of magnesium available otc, including magnesium citrate, magnesium sulfate, and aspartate.
