  • Don’t give them your Email as you can never unsubscribe. I’m receiving Emails from them every day. If you’re a legit doctor, why the scammy business practices?

  • I dont eat anything that has magnesium in it, except banana’s and wother. Should I take more magnesium? Like 350 to 400 mg magnesium?

  • I have chronic Diarrhoea for years due to mild colotis, I can’t imagine how depleted I am, my diet is good but contemplating taking nature’s plus citrate would you recommend this?

  • Magnesium is one of the minerals that is usually underestimated. It is involved in many functions of the body, such as relieving muscle pain, reducing stress and discomfort. Unfortunately, magnesium sources like other minerals and vitamins are not discussed. https://healthlifechannel.com/2020/02/13/magnesium-deficiency-symptoms/

  • Thank you Doc!
    And what can you say about Magnesium of Altapharma (Rossman)? There is magnesiumcarbonat. Is it good enough to take it?

  • Ive been taking a tablespoon of magnesium chloride powder mixed with a cup of water, and it tastes just AWFUL!! Is it ok to mix it with juice, fruit pulp, or something?

  • You didn’t say anything about liposomal Mg. It’s my understanding that liposomal Mg has better absorption from the gut. More importantly, the liposome formulation facilitates Mg into the cells.

  • magnesium oxide?
    that doesn’t seem right.
    in fact, opposite of what they say about magnesium oxide because it promotes diarrhea, and then you’ll loose even more magnesium.
    could you explain why you selected oxide over gluconate or glycinate which are both know for being less likely to cause diarrhea.

    these are not my findings, i’m only reiterating.

  • 200 mg of Magnesium Glycinate seems to be a stimulant and it keeps me up most of the night. I’m going to try taking it during the day and see if it gives me energy.

  • I have been suffering with muscle pain, charley horse and insomnia for quite a while now. Can you please suggest a natural brand of magnesium for me, I’m 69 years old and I want to purchase a supplement that will be a good fit to take. I’m also dealing with something similar to sciatica nerve pain starting from the right hip all the way down my right calf and I’ve been doing stretching exercises and it helps some what, but the muscle cramps are still coming. I have been researching on magnesium supplements and I ran across your YouTube channel. I thank you in advance for your video.♥️

  • Love these videos. I am on ketogenic diet and need to keep up my magnesium. When the body runs on ketones it tend to flush out electrolytes. So I will check out your full report on your website, thank you.

  • I subscribe to consumerlab.com, it is by far the best source of science-based info regarding supplements. Included are clinical test summaries, why people need it, how much a person needs, what dangers there may be, and a great chart of lab tests of many available brands. They include actual vs labeled amounts of the supplement, if there are any heavy metal contaminants, the daily cost for the recommended intake, and sometimes more.

  • Dr. Tod Cooperman. I take magnesium powder. 200 grams lysinate glycinate chelate. I have been taking it for about 3 or 4 months and it has helped my top number come down on my blood pressure.
    Is this one good to take? It’s in your video in capsules I think.

  • Different forms of magnesium seem to have different effects. I am using the gummies since I just can’t swallow the huge capsules and the drinks are saturated with either sugar or artificial sweetener and I can’t tolerate either. I’m diabetic and on lifelong steroids. The gummies seem to have much less of it and are easy to take. However my muscle cramps lessen more with one form of magnesium and sleep is slightly promoted with another. I used to take a quality supplement that contained several forms at once but the capsules were just too big. The gummies only contain a single form each. What would account for the difference in effect? I can’t eat enough nuts and leafy greens to stop the muscle cramps although I eat a lot of dandelion (free food) from Spring to late Autumn the drink the mature root ‘coffee’ in winter, so I do need a supplement. Why are diabetics so deficient in magnesium? Due to circulating blood glucose?

  • I recently had a lot of sprain inury…. so I began taking magnesium supplement. Suddenly, my digestion improved dramatically. Muscle soreness and pain seems to be gone faster. Can too low magnesium actually lead to easy muscle sprain? Or I was just lifting too heavy and too many repetition?

  • I have a question Dr. I had a heart ablation 3 weeks ago. The sac around the heart is likely inflammation causing me some pain. The doc prescribed ibeprofen for pain and inflammation. I was using it and the pain would disappear while using the ibeprofen. Well yesterday I took 200 Mg of magnesium and when I took the ibeprofen last night for the first time the pain was still present. I am wondering if the magnesium is blocking the effects of the ibeprofen? I will check with my doctor but I wanted to see what you know. Thanks

  • I take magnesium citrate and it actually makes me rest at night, I feel like I sleep better and actually I feel better since I been taking it.

  • Great Video!! but I CANT STAND PLASTIC BOTTLES and  99% of Mg is solvent extracted. I found a brand using TRANSDERMAL MG in GLASS and with confirmable Zechstein origins (NO SOLVANTS) unlike most US brands.

    Why Most Magnesium Supplements Dont Give Full Spectrum Long term Benefits: 


    I am sensitive to micro-plastics and estrogen mimickers leeched in plastic.

    Its only 3 dollars a week. I found this review: https://openyourmindchangeyourheart.wordpress.com

    Just trying to keep you up to date as your video is on point and very useful.

  • My deficiency causes skeletal muscles spasms like never before. When muscle starts to pull it twist and bends my fingers into forearms moves to feet to calf’s the same then rib muscles cramp all over like that. Magnesium saved me so far. Learned way late suffered for yrs. before.

  • I advise you not to take magnesium citrate more than 200 mg because it pulls water and minerals from your body and causes mineral imbalance. I advise you to take magnesium oxide because it is very safe. I use it 250 mg daily and recovered from diseases such as muscle cramps within only two days of its use.

  • Hi I take magnesium taurate works well for the heart.

    Furthermore, it does not do much it makes me tired and sleepy during the day.

    Even though I take 1.

    I read everywhere that magnesium citrate is not recommended.

    So I won’t take that.

    I read magnesium malate that it contains more malic acid than magnesium, so you have to take a lot.

    I don’t know which is good.

    Magnesium bisglycitate or glycitate is the same in the longer term, the heart can cause arrhythmias.

    That is said in the Netherlands.

    The best magnesium I have used is

    The Health Factory Nano Magnesium Extra Strong.

    But is too expensive for me to keep using.

    For me it is still searching which one I will take.

    Because I also have to buy that for my mother.

  • You didnt mention the most important one…. Magnesium oil Spray! Its 80% absorbable where as pills are only 30% due to the fact most of our guts are not working well

  • There are several different forms of magnesium that won’t cause loose stools. I take glycinate and others have benefited from malate.
