Take a dosage of 200 mg of Magnesium per day.
Consider taking Magnesium at bedtime, in a sleep-promoting stack, as magnesium supplementation is associated with optimal sleep.
The most common side effects of ingesting Magnesium is gastrointestinal upset, including diarrhea.
Magnesium is approved as a dietary supplement component under provisions of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994. It is classified as generally recognized as safe (GRAS).
