should i eat before or after drinking magnesium citrate?

Why taking?: If taking for constipation, drinking 10 ounces of magnesium citrate, induces large volume stool output between 1-6 hours later. Therefore eating after may be a little uncomfortable. If you are taking to raise your magnesium levels i would try a different form such as magnesium oxide or magnesium protein plus.
