Magnesium 7

Question Answer
Usage
What is the dosage? For common magnesium inadequacy, our recommended dosage is 2 capsules daily with 8 oz of water or juice. If desired, capsules can be opened and powder added to any food or beverage. Overall, magnesium is considered safe to take, but large amounts can cause GI upset and diarrhea in some people. Go with your healthcare provider's recommendation and listen to your body. Some people find it beneficial to start with one capsule (250 mg) and work up to 2 capsules (500 mg). If you are severely magnesium deficient or have other health considerations, your healthcare practitioner may recommend an even higher dose than the 2 capsules. Please work with your doctor to determine the optimal dose for you. Advanced Use: For improved sleep take full dosage 30 minutes before bed. Otherwise, split dose and take one in AM and PM
