Widespread Deficiency with Deadly Consequences By David Nayor
Magnesium is a common supplement and can also be found in the vitamin section of your local department store. However, not all magnesium supplements are created equal. The most common forms of magnesium that is found at your local store is typically Magnesium Oxide or Magnesium Citrate. In many people, these forms of magnesium cause abdominal discomfort, even diarrheah and are intolerable. However, there are other forms of magnesium that do not cause side effects and you will find them either online or through your local health food store. They are Magnesium Malate (which is typically recommended for those with Fibromyalgia) and Magnesium Glycinate. It may take some time for you to find the right form of magnesium for you.
