"Perhaps these magnesium tablets are chalky for a reason, e.g., to dissolve quickly in your stomach, however they are giant pills and that, combined with the chalky consistency and lack of enteric coating makes them difficult to take."
"My husband & I both take Magnesium Citrate because as you age it gets depleted. This "citrate" form of magnesium is more easily absorbed by your body. My husband had bowel irregularity so he takes 2 pills daily, where I do not have a bowel problem, so I only take 1 pill a day. Some people are afraid magnesium is a laxative but if your body is low in magnesium, you will not have that result. If your stools get too loose then you simply cut back on how often you take a pill. Magnesium is essential if you want to be healthy and prescription pills like high blood pressure pills deplete it."
