> I have diarrhoea possibly from Magnsium Oxide. Thinking Magnesium Glycinate? What dosage is good for someone who is working out?

I have found both Manesium Oxide and Magnesium Citrate can give me diarrhoea. A little less so if taken with food. I also seemed to recall that when taking Magnesium Oxide (years ago), my body seemed to adjust a bit over time.

But I now take Magnesium Glycinate (bisGlycinate sometimes sold is apparently the same thing). It's known to be "gentler" on gut than other forms. When first starting it sometimes gives me some "urgency" but not truly diarrhoea, if I take with food it mostly eliminates any bowel issues. Brand I take contains 140 mg elemental Magnesium, so although not a high dose, this form is said to be better absorbed than non-organic forms like Oxide.

Don't know what's recommended for Working Out but a web search might give some clues. Maybe also take into account what you're getting through diet e.g. nuts, legumes, leafy greens, etc. I've also read that taking with Vitamin C enhances absorption.
