I've heard that magnesium can cause diarrhea. What makes this one different?
Like all supplemental ingredients, absorption is the key. Because magnesium glycinate chelate is more easily absorbed and used by the body, less remains unabsorbed in the intestines. Magnesium attracts water, so if it is not well-absorbed, it can cause loose stools. Because magnesium glycinate is so well-absorbed, this is not a problem.
Can P-5-P/Mag help with PMS?
Absolutely. Not only has Vitamin B6 been shown to reduce premenstrual tension, it relieves water retention and bloating.*
