Why Ask: Magnesium citrate is used to relieve constipation by pulling water out of the cells lining the GI tract, increasing stool volume and gut motility. I am concerned by the question about the diagnosis of anorexia. I hope I am wrong. If so please get help. Magnesium citrate has essentially no calories unless the carriers in the magnesium are sugar which is usually not the case.
