Hi all, new member here. My wife and I started the program a few days ago, and I had a few questions on magnesium supplementation.

1. The book says 400-500mg/day (p294), and on p351 it says one can take to 360 mg per day of magnesium bicarbonate, but the webpage at http://innercircle.undoctored.com/undoctored_life_first_10_days says 280mg/day (140mg twice per day). I know the advice may evolve over time but I’m not sure which is more up-to-date. How much should I be taking?

2. The book says to "use Magnesium Water in place of magnesium supplements" to avoid longterm overdose, and not to take both (p351). Is it okay to go back and forth, so long as the total mg are within the right range? For example, maybe take magensium water for a week or two, then magnesium malate, then citrate, etc.

3. Is there a rough calculation for how many mg of magnesium are required depending the source, since some absorb better than others? For example, do we need more mg of magnesium malate than magnesium bicarbonate?

Thanks for your help!

Thanks, Spinny! That makes sense to just observe how my body reacts to it. I’m experimenting with bicarbonate on some days and malate on others.

Thanks Bob, this is super super helpful. There is so much to take in from the book, and having a quick reference guide like this to refer to is much appreciated.

And it is indeed okay to change between tablets and Magnesium Water, Health. The water is much more efficiently absorbed, however.

National Institute of Health:  1 gram per day as Magnesium
that means about 5 grams of magnesium malate for instance
