What about magnesium supplements? If you have been advised to take a dietary supplement, it is important to choose a good quality product that provides the form of magnesium most likely to be beneficial for the condition you are trying to treat (see table). The product you choose can also be influenced by what dose you need and how many capsules you want to take. Common forms of magnesium that you are likely to see on a nutritional supplement label are magnesium citrate, oxide, glycinate, and malate. Check out our quick guide to forms of magnesium and recommendations for use: Magnesium Citrate. Suggested Use: Occasional constipation, depression and anxiety. Lower dose of elemental magnesium per capsule, so that a daily dose is more like several capsules. Magnesium oxide. Recommended uses: heartburn and indigestion, constipation, migraines (including premenstrual). Useful for those who want to take as few capsules as possible as the oxide molecule is small and provides more magnesium per dose. Magnesium chloride. Recommended Uses: Heartburn, Constipation Used in topical applications to relieve sore muscles. Magnesium lactate. Recommended uses: stress, anxiety. Gentler on the digestive system, so a useful option when you need to take high doses. Magnesium malate. Recommended uses: heartburn, fatigue. Gentler on the digestive system and less likely to have laxative effects. Magnesium taurate. Recommended uses: cardiac arrhythmias, brain function, regulates blood sugar. Magnesium L-threonate. Recommended uses: depression, memory loss (including age-related). Magnesium sulfate (Epsom salt). Recommended uses: bath and foot bath for muscle pain relief, relaxation and stress relief, constipation. Magnesium glycinate. Recommended uses: heartburn, sleep, mental calm and relaxation, anxiety and depression. Magnesium orotate. Recommended Uses: Heart Health, Energy Support. Although magnesium supplements are well tolerated by most people, some people experience symptoms such as nausea and diarrhea. To minimize the risk of side effects, take the dietary supplement with a meal and away from medication. High doses (more than 400 mg) are more likely to cause indigestion and there is currently insufficient evidence of the effects high doses can have over time. Always follow the directions on the label and contact your GP or healthcare professional if you are not sure. #Magnesium # Dietary supplement.
