Ozonated Magnesium Oxides
I was told that ozonated magnesium oxides are nonelemental magnesium and that you can take higher milligram doses than regular magnesium. Is that true?
Safe laxative: This stuff is being promoted as a way of "cleansing" the gut (which any magnesium salt will do, as an osmotically-active substance), and supposedly "bringing much-needed oxygen" to the gut, which is already well-supplied by the blood vessels. You can safely ingest huge amounts of magnesium if your kidneys are functioning normally. All magnesium except the metal are nonelemental. ...Read more
I take a supplement called oxy powder by ghc. It contains 2746 mg of ozonated magnesium oxides per 4 caps. I take 1 per day. Is this safe?
Should be.: Based on what you shared, i calculate your daily mg supplementation of about 700mg. If your kidney function is normal, this dose of mg shouldn't be an issue. Careful as too much mg can result in diarrhea. Unless you have a medical condition or are on medications that can lead to mg wasting, a healthy well-balanced diet rich in nuts, soybeans, bran should provide plenty of mg for you. ...Read more
Either: The magnesium is what might help with anxiety. The citrate could be easier to absorb than the oxide, but the oxide is a little more economical. Be aware that magnesium supplements can cause loose stools, so use divided doses and increase gradually. You need about 320mg/day of magnesium from all sources including food -- possibly more if under significant stress. Stools can be your dosing guide. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Magnesium supplement: Magnesium oxide, and magnesium supplements in general, are generally not necessary and can cause some potential side effects. It may be used in the short term for heartburn or as a laxative. They should not be used long-term unless under the care of a physician who recommended it. Magnesium of any sort can have interactions with many other medications. Good luck. ...Read more
Magnesium: Magnesium supplements are not recommended nor necessary for our bodies. They often will cause diarrhea and make matters worse rather than better. Feel like you want more magnesium? Think whole grains, vegetables, seeds and nuts, particularly almonds. That your best bet! Good luck. ...Read more
What is the recommended dosage of magnesium both - as amino acid chelate and as oxide heavy?, Am deficient in magnesium
Magnesium deficiency: Most Americans are low in magnesium. It can vary from one person to another up to 8 fold how much magnesium a person needs. I recommend following label directions and increasing by one dose per night until 8 doses or loose stool. If you get to loose stool, consider that one dose too many. Most people only need 2 or 3 doses per day, and it could be taken all at bedtime. ...Read more
