You are 100% wrong. Magnesium Aspartate is the best form and best absorbed magnesium available. It has nothing to do with Aspartame. Aspartic acid is a nonessential Amino acid, meaning that our own bodies produce it, and it plays a role in hormone production and nervous system function. Aspartic acid is not a component of Aspartame. Aspartame and Aspartic acid are two completely different compounds that have nothing to do with each other.
I'M taking magnesium citrate 400 mg for a week now and still have loose stools. I don't take it all at once but in three portions during the day. Any suggestions?
Thank you for the imfo but would you please explain the benefits of magnesium......I've been taking Natural Calm for about a month now and the results have been terrific. This is after suffering for decades. No doctor ever mentioned that mag might be helpful. Why do you think that is?

I'm kin of newe to the magnesum thing

Aspartame is a dipeptide consisting of L-aspartic acid and L-phenylalanine.
No glutamate in there. It's probably the glutamate in the MSG, monosodiumglutamate, an equally undesirable compound, that's causing the confusion.
Further, magnesium glutaMate should not be confused with magnesium glutaRate, the salt of glutaric acid, which is only slightly neurotoxic, mostly in metabolic conditions. The difference between the two is an aminogroup in glutamic acid, which -apart from being a potential neurotoxin- also is an important neurotransmitter.
Magnesium is well absorbed if taken on an empty stomach (morning or before bed); absorption is enhanced if taken together with vitamin C, Calcium and B vitamins.
Magnesium seems to have over 18000 functions in the body, so if you would please excuse me, Viperron, for not expanding on your question. Google 'magnesium benefits' and you'll get more than you can digest.

I recently bought a magnesium supplement, Zinc,magnesium and vitamin B6.
When it arrived I noticed the ingredients are listed as Magnesium Aspartate 900mg, Zinc Monomethhionine Aspartate 60mg, Vitamin B6 24mg
after reading your articles re the danger of taking magnesium in the form of magnesium Aspartate I wrote to the company stating what I had read etc and asking their views on if it were safe to take, and why as a long standing Vitamin & supplement supplier they were selling a product that was potentially dangerous. I later asked them why I had never recieved a reply to my enquiry that I sent through the contact section of their website. They replied stating they had never received it ! I have since looked again and they no longer sell it. (coincidence ?) Can someone tell me if it is safe for me to take or have I wasted my money and will be better off not taking it. ?
Many thanks to anyone who can answer this for me.
My primary care physician said magnesium is likely to cause diarhhea and did not recommend it. The pharmacist said it is not recommended as we age -- I am 67 -- because it is hard on the kidneys. Hope some of this is helpful. What does your physician say?
Hi 35 year old female here. I take wellbutrin in the morning and .50 mg of xanax before bed. Wondering if it's safe to take magnesium along with these 2 meds. I tend to have loose stools as it is, so im not sure what kind I should take. Also wondeing if a magnesium deficiency was the problem for me all along. Any insight is appreciated! Thanks.

Thanks 4 advice, Magali from Maui
Are you taking , it for PAC/ pvs if so can you tell any difference yet
In your article about Magnesium supplements, the fourth paragraph begins with Chalated, which may be confusing for some readers. Also I was under the impression that an empty stomach was not secreting as much stomach acid for digestion.
I for one, was still looking for information within this article about the other forms of magnesium. And possible magenesium testing.

everything I have read about magnesium says to "take with food" so I am a bit confused on the best time ot take it.
I found a suppliment.. by cardiovascular research ltd.. Its magnesium taurate, 125mg... Does that mean its only part magnesium and part taurine? i see natural calm has like 300 mg of magnesium.. another brand was 200mg of mag glycinate per pill...I am a little confused about how much magnesium is in 125mg mag taurate
I have always read that indeed we need MORE magnesium as we age as it is depleted from the body the older we get. This makes sense to me logically speaking. In my opinion, physicians don't really know what they're talking about in regard to nutrients. Never have....they don't teach it in med school.
Magnesium Glycinate was recently added to the California Proposition 65 list of known carcinogenic chemicals. Whole Foods stopped carrying the Solgar preparation of Magnesium Glycinate in California for this reason.
