Not really: 36 y female has self-diagnosed Fibromyalgia & takes variety of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Taking these simultaneously should be no problem; perhaps best with meal for gradual absorption. Should not exceed more than 0.5 gm per day of any one amino acid. See Rheumatologist for diagnosis & to rule out another diagnosis for symptoms - see comments below about the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. ...Read more

Can i take citrulline malate, beta alliane, creatine and l-argine together to gain muscle, size and strength?

Can i take citrulline malate, beta alliane, creatine and  l-argine together to gain muscle, size and strength?

Taken together: You can take them together but that is not what will cause you to gain muscle size & strength. You gain size and strength from the actual exercises performed and the amount of protein you consume to repair the overtaxed muscle after the exercise. Consult your family physican or a sports medicine doc for proper guidance. ...Read more

Is supplements which contain citrulline malate fine for 16 years old person or it will has any side effects on height or kidneys or livers or bones?

Nobody really knows: Such supplements are not studied enough by researchers because these supplements are not fda-approved drugs for treating particular disorders. Nobody knows for sure what may happen if a teen takes performance-enhancing supplements. So, it is best for all young athletes to train and build their bodies the natural way, with healthy foods, avoiding sports supplements or body-building supplements. ...Read more

Is it okay to take Citrulline malate (100%) as a pre workout whilst on oral contraceptive pills?

Is it okay to take Citrulline malate (100%) as a pre workout whilst on oral contraceptive pills?

Don't bother.: Save your money. There is no decent, independent study of sufficient size and quality to say that it will do anything for you, good or bad. Any study has been on only a handful of subjects. (less than 50 for the effect tested for). You make plenty of your own citrulline already.

I suffer with chronic migraines. What dosage of magnesium should you take for migraines and could this make headaches worse?

250 to 500 mg: Magnesium deficiency has been found in many who suffer from migraine. A good retiming is to take enough till you develop diarrhea, then take one pill less. I place my patients on 500mg daily if they can tolerate it. Other important steps are, eating reg meals, proper sleep, exercise, stress reduction, and prevention and ablation meds that improve your condition ...Read more

What is the proper dosage of magnesium I should take for constipation? Female, 21 years old, about 140 pounds.

What is the proper dosage of magnesium I should take for constipation? Female, 21 years old, about 140 pounds.

Depends on type: There are many types of Magnesium. Magnesiums that are poorly absorbed, like Mag oxide, help by acting as a laxative. But magnesium deficiency can also cause constipation and well-absorbed forms like mag taurate and glycinate help. I advise trying 400 mg/day of well-absorbed forms, and you can increase dose if that does not help. High doses are safe. See http://tinyurl.com/m7oovm4

I have bad muscle twiching all over and took 500mg magnesium a day and it worked very well. Is that a safe dosage per day.

Usually: If your kidneys work, and if you are not getting diarrhea (most people don't at that dose), then it should be a safe level to supplement, with many 1-a-day magnesium supplements being in that range. If twitching persists or is recurrent, should ask your dr about this, as might want to check blood work and/or look for cause(s). ...Read more

How much magnesium citrate is safe to take? Is 400 mg to high? I take it to help with anxiety. I keep reading conflicting information on dosage.

How much magnesium citrate is safe to take? Is 400 mg to high? I take it to help with anxiety. I keep reading conflicting information on dosage.

Titrate: There are individual differences in magnesium absorption, so there is no standard dose. Basically, "titrate to bowel tolerance". Which means take as much as you can handle without giving yourself diarrhea. For anxiety, magnesium glycinate may be slightly better.

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

I find out that anxiety can be reduced with rhodiola and magnesium. Is it safe to take both supplement? And how much dosage should I take? Thanks

Yes, see below:: Yes, it is totally safe to take rhodiola and magnesium. A reasonable dose for rhodiola is 100-200 mg/day in morning. Magnesium is best as magnesium taurate or glycinate, 300-400 mg, some in morning, most in evening. See http://www.Herbwisdom.Com/herb-rhodiola.Html
