I know it is highly recommended to take magnesium to help with your vitamin D absorption if you supplement, but does anyone know what KIND of magnesium? Also how much & how often? Can it increase your calcium?

Yes, you need magnesium to activate vitamin D. Vitamin D is generally used to regulate the balance of phosphate and calcium in order to maintain healthy bones.
