The Different Types of Magnesium

Magnesium Oxide

Oxidation is a process active in all living tissue.  Oxygenated Magnesium acts as a colon cleanser and is superior to other colon-cleansing systems because the magnesium and oxygen breaks down into its individual elements upon entering the digestive system.  This product literally cleans the walls of the colon!  The released oxygen liquefies all solid fecal matter attached to walls of the colon.  This expels more bacteria and allows for optimum absorption with the intestines.   To Use:  Take 1 teaspoon 4x/day 1-2 hours before or after meals.  Mix it with 1/3 cup water. Magnesium Hydroxide is sold over the counter and is also good for constipation

Magnesium Citrate

This is one of the most common forms of Mg on the market. This is the most commonly used form in laxative preparations because it absorbs faster.

Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate

Chelated Magnesium is great for stress and will help you relax and not feel so wired.

Magnesium Sulphate and Magnesium Chloride

Mg sulphate is Epsom salts.  Taken this internally it has a very strong laxative effect, but when used in a bath or soak it relaxes the muscles and can ease aches and pains. Epsom salts baths can also help to lower high blood pressure and reduce stress levels. Magnesium chloride is more common in the lotion, gel and oil preparations that can be used topically for muscle cramps and relaxation.

Cautions:  You only need to take magnesium until your symptoms go away.  You only want to take Mg orally for about a week.  You’ll already have magnesium in your multi-vitamin so watch the dosage.  Don’t over-dose on magnesium because it can affect the heart.  If you get stomach cramps or diarrhea, stop taking magnesium.
