There are a lot of magnesium supplements out there and while they all might seem the same there is a real difference in the way your body is able to absorb and utilize the various types of magnesium.
If you are taking magnesium to improve your health or relieve any of the symptoms that you are experiencing. The quality of the magnesium you consume will directly affect the benefits you feel from the magnesium. If you have ever tried magnesium and the past and it didn’t work for you. It wasn’t the magnesium that wasn’t working. It was most likely not being well absorbed into your body so that it could work.

Bioavailability of Different Magnesium Supplements

Being constipated means your bowel movements are tough or happen less often than normal. Almost everyone goes through it sooner or later.
The normal length of time between bowel movements varies widely from person to person. Some people have them three times a day. Others have them only once or twice a week.
Going longer than 3 or more days without one, though, is usually too long. After 3 days, the stool or feces become harder and more difficult to pass.
Signs and symptoms of constipation in adults may include:
- Few bowel movements
- Trouble having a bowel movement (straining to go)
- Hard or small stools
- A sense that everything didn’t come out
- Swollen belly or belly pain
- Throwing up
Signs and symptoms of constipation in children may include:
- Less than three bowel movements a week
- Bowel movements that are hard, dry and difficult to pass
- Large-diameter stools that may obstruct the toilet
- Pain while having a bowel movement
- Abdominal pain
- Traces of liquid or clay-like stool in your child's underwear — a sign that stool is backed up in the rectum
- Blood on the surface of hard stool
If your child fears that having a bowel movement will hurt, he or she may try to avoid it. You may notice your child crossing his or her legs, clenching his or her buttocks, twisting his or her body, or making faces when attempting to hold stool.

The source from which these minerals are mined is often not disclosed to the public. Currently almost all of the magnesium supplements in the United States come from dead inland water sources such as those found in and near Salt Lake City, Utah.
The United States' largest magnesium producer, which supplies magnesium for almost all magnesium supplements, has been ranked as one of the largest polluters in the nation. These quotes and photographs describe the state of magnesium mining in the USA.
"The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency told the world Thursday that the Utah plant of the Magnesium Corp. of America - formerly AMAX - is the nation's worst air polluter. The EPA also said Utah skies receive the sixth most toxic chemicals from industrial pollution of any state - with 92 percent of it coming from Magcorp's plant in Rowley, Tooele County, on the western shore of the Great Salt Lake."

During your workout or athletic event, your muscles will be required to repeatedly generate high levels of force. A proper sports drink during this period of time will help you produce the energy needed to achieve a stronger workout, better athletic performance, and minimize muscle damage that occurs as a natural consequence of exercise, and, most important, sets the stage for a faster recovery following your workout.
Physiological and Metabolic Changes During Exercise and Athletic Performance
Exercise stresses many systems of the body. At the onset, there is an immediate need to produce great amounts of energy; as exercise intensity increases, so do the muscles energy requirements. To accommodate these increased energy needs, the body must initiate multiple physiological and metabolic changes. While these changes are essential for providing an adequate supply of energy to the working muscles, they may also result in transient adverse effects such as muscle damage and immune system suppression.
Muscle fibers need a rapid supply of energy during resistance or cardiovascular activity. This requires the utilization of large numbers of ATP molecules. The breakdown of ATP releases the energy . . .

Constipation Relief for Young Children
Magnesium works to relax the muscles in the intestines which helps to establish a smoother elimination rhythm. Magnesium also attracts water; this increased amount of water in the colon serves to soften the stool, helping to make stools easier to pass.
However, not all forms of magnesium are safe for young children. Because of this, it is very important that you check the form of magnesium you choose for your kids.
Although magnesium citrate is one of the most common forms of magnesium you can find, it is NOT recommended for infants and toddlers under the age of 4.
Children often have an allergic reaction to magnesium citrate supplements, which may result in a medical emergency. Children with a magnesium citrate allergy should not take it under any circumstances. An allergic reaction to magnesium citrate can cause hives, itching, shortness of breath, wheezing, cough, chest tightness, and fever. Stanford Health reports that you may also experience difficulty breathing, swelling of your tongue, lips and face and closing of your throat.
Children may also experience gastrointestinal side effects from magnesium citrate which include nausea, upset stomach, gas, diarrhea, and vomiting.

The study was conducted in Japan with 3,835 subjects who were between the ages of 18 and 20. Surprisingly constipation was not found to be associated with low fiber intake or low intake of water from fluids. Constipation
