Absorption: There is no need for any aids to absorb calcium (C) if you have normal levels of 1-25 DHCC (1-25), which is the agent responsible for the intestinal transport of C into body. Patients with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD, need some replacement of 1-25, as their diseased kidneys do not allow 1-25 to be made. Magnesium absorption is not effected by CKD. There are no drugs to improve it. ...Read more
I take magnesium citrate powder in cold bottled spring water and wonder about how well it's being absorbed.?
Can too much magnesium glycinate chelate be absorbed in the body (with high doses) and cause permanent damage? Or do good kidneys filter it all out?
Likely filtered out: High dose magnesium can cause muscle weakness / fatigue / lethargy, but with good hydration, the kidneys will filter and excrete the excess over time. Use all medications / treatments according to dr's recommendations. Call poison center for specific advice and recommendations if concerned. ...Read more

Clever marketing?: The sellers of magnesium oil write that their product is magnesium dissolved in water, with a slippery feel, so is called an "oil". Sounds like clever marketing, with some slippery claims. One should ask them for research studies comparing patients who used the magnesium oil (water), with patients who used the regular oral forms of magnesium. If no good research study is available, then beware! ...Read more
Switching from pill to liquid form of magnesium and potassium. I'm told the body absorbs much more from liquid. Should I maintain dosage or take less?
Supplements?: If you potassium (k) and magnesium (m) are normal, you need no supplements. The body does not care if you take liquid k or m, or pills. Patients with m deficiency have low k levels that cannot be corrected until the m is normal. You are not on a diuretic that causes both k and m loss in the urine. Before you continue taking the k and m supplements, make sure you need to. Get a blood test. ...Read more
What is the best magnesium form for the body to absorb and how can we find fast relief for a defeciency can we use homeopathy and salt bathes too?
Magnesium is great!: Magnesium glycinate is usually the best absorbed orally but can be expensive. Any form of oral magnesium can act like a laxative if too much is taken at one time. Mg is very safe but people with kidney disease need to be careful and should ask their doctor. Topical Mg does work well, both oils and creams are available commercially- great for muscle spasms! Epsom salt baths work well for deficiency ...Read more
I heard magnesium & iron compete for absorption. Is it safe to take a magnesium & iron supplement together? If not, how long should I wait in between?
It depends, safe, why?:
Poorly absorbed forms of magnesium like mag. Oxide interfere with iron absorption whereas water-soluble forms like mag. Aspartate may not interfere- see http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/8024640
it's safe to take together but might be prudent to take 2 hours apart.
But iron deficiency is rare in men, even in men with anemia. I advise against men taking iron unless you're sure you're deficient. ...Read more
Is it ok to take calcium, vitamin D3 and magnesium together? Or do calcium and magnesium compete for absorption?
OK, to a degree but::
Calcium ; magnesium are often packaged together both in supplements ; foods. They compete a bit; calcium may reduce mag. Absorption but mag. Does not seem to reduce cal. Absorption. Those low in mag. Have difficulty absorbing cal.; if deficient in mag. It may be best to take it separately.

Why is Magnesium oxide always recommended by doctors while it has the lowest absorption rate of all types of Magnesium? Why not chelated Glycinate?
Magnesium: Magnesium glycinate is a chelated form that tends to provide the highest levels of absorption and bioavailability and is typically considered ideal for deficiency. Magnesium oxide is a non-chelated type of magnesium and is less well absorbed. Why magnesium oxide is often prescribed likely has to do with its lower price and stool softening properties. ...Read more
Can I take magnesium with amino acids together? Also, what vitamins and minerals should I not take with mg. Affecting absorption?
It should not: Magnesium might interfere with some medications but not Amino Acids absorption. Why would you need to take Amino Acid supplement? Is it better that you eat a balance diet with enough protein, which would give you plenty of amino acids? It is more natural and complete variety of Amino Acids including the essential ones. Only in severe food allergy that you need a complete Amino Acid diet. ...Read more
Why do all vitamins and supplements advise to take w food? So it absorbs or so you won't get sick? I would like 2take my omega and magnesium w/o food!
Can prescription strength acid reflux medication damage teeth? I have heard the medication does not let you absorb calcium and magnesium.
Do I take vitamin b complex with magnesium or can I take vitamin B12? For better absorption of magnesium. Currently also take vit D3 thanks
OK but not 4 absorb.: It is perfectly fine to take b complex/b12 with magnesium but won't enhance absorption. Magnesium is best absorbed on an empty stomach ; b vits can cause stomach upset on empty stomach. B vits, esp. B6, often work in synergy with mag. The best-absorbed forms of mag. Are glycinate ; taurate; citrate is ok too. Epsom salt baths ; topical "magnesium oil" are also good ways to get magnesium into you. ...Read more
Am taking 50k iu vit 8wks for vit d deficiency. Should I take magnesium as well to support absorption and decrease muscle pain? If so what dosage? Ty!
Don't think so: I see no reason to take magnesium with this good dose of vit d. If you wonder about deficiency of magnesium, you can ask your doc to check levels. It is ok to take otc mag 250 mg or 400mg daily for a few days on your own without blood test. But, if you you have kidney disease or take other prescriptions you need to clear it with your doc since interaction may occur. ...Read more
If I take vitamin d supplements, do I need to take magnesium supplements along with it to improve vitamine d absorption? And to prevent mag depletion?
Could intake of calcium carbonate with magnesium and vitamin d, american ginseng, and gingko biloba at once impair the absorption of one another?
Don't waste your $: G. biloba failed clinical trials. Ineffective. Ginseng is 1 of those bogus "ancient wisdom" things. Its use is based on a SUPERSTITION called the "doctrine of signatures:" because the root looks like a headless man, the prescientific ancients had this delusion that it would cure things. It doesn't. Be skeptical. Think critically. Arm yourself with modern knowledge, not ancient superstition. ...Read more
I was prescribed Azithromycin for strep throat, took 1st dose w/40 mg Magnesium before knowing not supposed to. How much would that affect absorbance?
One time take: Shouldn't be a problem since you only did it once. Talk with the doctor, maybe they'll want you to take 1 pill extra to make it a 6 day as opposed to 5 day regimen. Frankly, I probably wouldn't. I predict everything will be peachy keen. ...Read more
Will magnesium supplements as mag oxide 500 mg be absorbed if I have GERD or gut infections. On omeprazole too. Reflux, bone pain, anxiety, nervy!
Mag oxide poorly abs:
Magnesium oxide is poorly absorbed no matter what-it's best use is as a laxative! choose magnesium glycinate, taurate or citrate-see http://bit. Ly/1dpai09
omeprazole interferes with mineral absorption ; is not healthy to take for very long; there are much better alternatives. See http://bit. Ly/1b1avqs ; http://chriskresser. Com/heartburn
a holistic md is much more likely to be aware of alternatives. ...Read more
Hi I have read that the adult daily dose for magnesiium is 420 mg however only 11 of mgcl is absorbed so takintg 1500 mg of mgcl will yield only 160 mg how can we get at least 300 mg in the body?
Try MgOx: Magnesium is available in many different forms. Magnesium citrate is used to clean out the bowel. Magnesium chloride is available as supplement, but the preferred form is the magnesium oxide. This appears to be absorbed better. Some patients with seizure disorders take up to 1500 mg mgox per day with benefit. For those with low mg there is better absorption of any form of mg. ...Read more
Help! Is a 1.6 magnesium result low enough to be dangerous if I'm having symptoms that come along with it.
Low Magnesium: Low magnesium (m) levels can cause, muscle spasms, tics, weakness, low calcium and potassium blood levels as well as dangerous cardiac irregular heart rhythms. Patients on diuretics are more apt to develop this problem than those not on them. See your doctor for more advice, or if you have symptoms go to the nearest er for IV m administration. ...Read more
My magnesium level is:0, 64 mmol/L (ref: 0, 75-1).I`m taking daily 250 mg magnesium, but it seems to be not enough. How much is recommended in this case?
Review with your doc: Magnesium is one of those minerals that can cause a lot of problems if you take too much of it. The recommended dietary allowance of magnesium is 320 mg; getting this from food sources is entirely safe. Taking more through supplements may cause diarrhea, nausea/vomiting. I'm not sure why you think 250 mg is not enough, but taking up to 320-350 per day should be safe. But check with your doctor:) ...Read more
