I have been taking magnesium for many years and I was beginning to have intestinal issues: loose bowels, gas, not tolerating broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, etc. I finally realized that magnesium is a laxative so stopped taking it. I have felt so much better. Occasionally I have the loose stools but none of the other problems.
I can eat all foods again.
I am concerned that I need magnesium for my bones. I take 1000 mg of calcium citrate and 5000 IU's of D3 per day. I am 62 years old. Is there some other way to get magnesium?
