Serving Size & Timing
This supplement is recommended to be taken in serving sizes of 1000mg per day. The FDA recommends that Magnesium be taken in servings of 400mg per day. And since this solution contains 42% Magnesium, consuming 1000mg of the total supplement will equal about 420mg, just a little bit more than the FDA recommended daily value for adults.
Because of this supplement‚Äôs strong effects, it is recommended that no other medication be taken within one to two hours of taking this, as the Magnesium Hydroxide present in the stomach may cause the drug to not be absorbed correctly.
It has also been shown that the efficiency of Magnesium supplementation increases greatly when taking Calcium supplements along with it. For best results, it is recommended that Magnesium be consumed at a 1:2 ratio with Calcium. If taking 420mg of Magnesium with this supplement, you should also be taking 840mg calcium in order to balance out the effects.
Magnesium Hydroxide Concentration
Magnesium hydroxide comes in the form of a fine powder and it has no fillers of any kind present in it. It contains 42% elemental magnesium which is a very high concentration.
Magnesium Hydroxide Side Effects
As long as suggested serving sizes are adhered to, Magnesium Hydroxide should be safe to take. However, taking too much may cause adverse side effects such as diarrhea, which can rapidly deplete the body‚Äôs supply of potassium. Muscle cramps may subsequently develop and inhibit the adsorption of iron and folic acid.
Those who have or have had severe kidney issues are recommended to make absolutely sure not to overdose on the total Magnesium content, as this could exacerbate their condition or cause it to resurface. Those who are healthy and have not been recommended this supplement by a doctor are advised to not take it for more than one week. If any side effects such as rectal bleeding or constipation occur or are still present, immediately discontinue use and call a doctor. These are usually indicative of another kind of serious condition that is not associated with this supplement.
The elderly and those that are already taking Magnesium-rich medications or supplements must consult a doctor before using this product.
This product is not very soluble in water. While this does make consumption a bit more complicated, it also means that it functions as a strong electrolyte, which may be of some use to those that work out often. This product should be stored in an area that is free from light, heat and moisture in order to preserve its potency.
