Magnesium Citrate difficult to swallow
I take Magnesium Citrate to help with constipation issues but the tablets are so large and dry that they stick in my throat. Is there any other brand thst is easier to swallow?
I use Pure Encapsulations Magnesium tablets but I have to take them with water. Bio Care is another good brand.
Thank you Paula. I'll have a look at them!
Why not use magnesium citrate powder? That's what I use, pure magnesium citrate and no other ingredients unlike the unnecessary rubbish that H&B, and other brands, put in their supplements. I make a small drink with some orange juice.
113 servings at their suggested dose works out at 23p per serving, use less or more as necessary.
They do a smaller pack but this is better value.
Many thanks S.S. I've ordered some right away!
Magnesium citrate is not the best thing to take it upsets the production of ceruloplasmin in the body ...see the research on magnesium advocacy group on facebook
All citrate forms of supplements are not good
I don't (and wont) do facebook. I am happy with magnesium citrate, as many others here are. Considering Dr Sarah Myhill is happy to recommend and sell it, then personally I'm not too worried.
Sarah Myhill may be goid but even she does not know everything
It does help with my constipation problem though. What magnesium do you suggest tsking instead?
Magnesium glycinate is better but constipation and hypothyroid is an issue of incorrect treatment whether that is underdosing or incorrect dosage or sheer fact that levo or T3 are synthetic and you need NDT is a matter one can only work through to find answer
Mag citrate is pretty much all that H and B sell sadly " health " is no longer their concern ...they are like big pharma all that matters is profit
I use the body spray x
Me too- Better You magnesium.
I bought some of that, couldn't stand the feel of it on my skin. Also tried a gel form, same thing - eewwww! I just don't do creams, lotions, etc, on my skin. I can just about cope with moisturiser on my face
I've got some from Better You but it doesn't solve the constipation issue
Magnesium citrate is the very last form of magnesium you should take
Any citrate form of anything damages vital ceruloplasmin production in the body
Magnesium advocacy group on facebook .....explains plus heaps of research
Take Magnesium Glycinate ...cheapest source is importing 2 bottles at a time from pipingrock.com ...no more or you get VAT slapped on
Thanks I'll look into that.
I'm currently using up some huge pills of magnesium citrate. I found I could get them down more easily if I take them with a large gulp of water. If I just took a sip I couldn't get them down. I've bought some magnesium citrate powder for future use. I'm fed up of choking on pills more suitable for a horse!
Thank you. Thats what I've been doing and they still get stuck in my throat. I've also ordered the powder now
You can also get Remag liquid magnesium. But much more expensive than Calm vitality magnesium powder. I use calm vitality and find it very helpful
Thank you SD. I've ordered the powdered form to save getting my throat scratched with trying to swallow these pills
You can dissolve them. It's ok to do so.
I used to have that brand and dissolve it in water.
I'll try that with the remaining few tablets I've got left. Thank you.
Can you cut them in half....or am I showing my ignorance!!
I expect they can but I'm near the end of the bottle and thought there would an easier pill to swallow. The man in H&B suggested cutting them in half too!!
