So should I only take one of the mags to start and adjust? I was going to start with the mag malate, but each tab would be @400. Would that be too much?
Good choices Each tab isnt 400. That tablet would be too big to swallow. lol. If you look at the serving size then the amount of magnesium and divide that, you'll get the amount. I'm not sure what the 1250mg refers to. For the malate you need 3 tablets to get 425mg magnesium.
I like to start slow- around 200mg morning and night. My dr suggests starting at 400mg twice a day but that killed my stomach which can be sensitive. Malate is best taken in the morning and glycinate at night.
You're right, I wonder where they get the 1250mg malate when the serving of 3 tabs = 425. So I should be OK to take one in the AM, and 1 glycinate tab (=200mg) in the PM to start, right?
Yes 1 of each am/pm is a good starting place. You can always cut them in half if needed. Or add another after a few days. I'm going to email vitacost and ask about the 1250mg I'm curious.
