One of the most taken supplements today is magnesium citrate. It is an antidote to stress, the most powerful relaxation mineral available, and it can help improve sleep. Magnesium is one of the most abundant minerals in soft tissues and is a vital catalyst in enzyme health. Magnesium supports in maintaining healthy energy levels and proper calcium absorption.
A significant portion of the general population has a magnesium deficiency. Many eat a a highly-processed, refined diet that is based mostly on white flour, meat, and dairy (all of which have no magnesium). Magnesium functions in the conversion of carbohydrates, protein, and fats to energy and also helps in the regulation of blood pressure and blood glucose levels.

If you tend towards constipation, you can use magnesium citrate to stimulate a bowel movement. If you take it at night (250 to 1000 mg as needed), blended into an Absorb Plus or whey protein shake, the alkaline whey will buffer the magnesium and you won't get any tummy pains, nausea, etc. from the magnesium.
If you are susceptible to diarrhea, then don't use magnesium citrate – use the Mini-Minerals Magnesium instead, it does not require digestion and therefore does not cause loose bowels. We also carry another stool bulking/softening product, which is fabulous for either constipation or diarrhea, called MetaCleanse.
People with IBD (ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease) often have trouble absorbing nutrients from their intestine, and may have low levels of magnesium, potassium and other important nutrients. This is important because magnesium (along with potassium) plays a key role in skeletal and smooth muscle contraction, making it important for normal digestive and muscular function.
So if your intestine is spasming or cramping, you may need magnesium, or you may need potassium, or both! Likewise, if you cannot relax your rectum, or your peristalsis is malfunctioning, then you likely need one or both of these minerals.
