    How many people take MAGNESIUM

    What is it good for? What do you use it for ? what are the side effects and how long are the side effects last for. How much to take and when to take it and for how long? I head that MAGNESIUM is good for a lot of things for mood swings ,muscle tension also calms and helps fight fatigue and dizziness

    If I take water pills on a regular basis, I take magnesium. It seems to help keep muscle cramps at bay.  I have never had any side effects. I take a combination of calcium 1000mg, magnesium 400mg and zinc 15mg.  I am supposed to take 3 of those a day. I will take 2 with meal and then other other one with another meal.

    Except for muscle cramps I have never noticed it helping in any other areas.

      I find magnesium very relaxing, bringing on sound sleep. At the same time, this relieves muscle and general nervous tension. I have noticed a small benefit of relieving fatigue for a while before it's time for bed. Finally, it keeps one regular.
