In brief: It may

Constipation is so common and is undoubtedly related to diet.
Milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) is magnesium and is in common use. Another bit of advice is taking enough vitamin c until you get diarrhea and then back off the dose. But your diet must also contain enough fruit and vegetables as god intended!
