    Magnesium

    I've read that magnesium is a relaxing supplement and it is good to take at bedtime. I woke up early this a.m. and couldn't get back to sleep so I tried taking some sublingual magnesium (homeopathic), and found myself relaxing almost immediately. Anyone else have this experience?

    My question is, how much magnesium can one take? Is it dangerous to take too much? If so, how much is too much?

    Your body will let you know

    Hi ya beattle, magnesium is good for the nerves and exceptionally good for those of us with a long history of drinking, the alcohol leeches this and other nutrients from the body. If you take too much the result is usually diarrhoea.

    Beatle,

    Magnesium

    This is a great write up on Magnesium. Mentions alcoholism and tolerable upper limit intake. (Long, though.)

    Hope this helps!!

    Love,
    Cindi

    magnesium is also good for PMS. My doctor suggested it as well as calcium to me a few years ago when I was almost losing my mind for a week every month.

    Magnesium

    Beatle, Somewhere on the "The way up from down" site I read, I think, that one should not exceed 1000 mg a day magnesium. I keep mine to 750 mg just to be sure I am not getting too much. The only problem is I can't find exactly where I read that now on the site.

    Excuse me while I wipe the tears from my eyes over Det's beautiful post. Such meaning behind one simple word.

    Magnesium

    Thanks all. I read that Cindi, but I think the upper limits are for "normal" people. I think I read that alcoholics absorb as little as 20% of the magnesium they take in.

    Determinator, you have especially helped me to understand this complicated issue. May I quote you in future?
