Comment:
I use 100-200mg magnesium malate (preferred by my naturopath) at bedtime and it helps my muscles relax so I get a full night's restful sleep. My husband takes 100 mg before bed and it has stopped his mild RLS which also helps him get a better night's sleep. Magnesium malate is less likely to cause intestinal upset and also helps chelate some heavy metals from the brain.

Comment:
Magnesium oil (obtained from Chemist) rubbed into joints, back, knees for severe arthritis removed completely all the stiffness for a few hours. I now do it 2-3 times per day and through the night as necessary. You can make your own by buying from Health food shop the Magnesium Flakes and dissolving in water. Use a spray bottle for easy application. Recipe on Google.

F 53 taking for depression. 1000 mg 2x a day. Taking in conjunction with D3 and Calcium in the evenings. D3 and Calcium help me sleep, the Mag helps to mellow me out. I worked late tonight and got home at 8PM tonight, hadnt taken my magnesium (usually take by 6pm) and was completely on edge! Mag helps a lot, but I wonder if symptoms are worse if you stop taking it

Comment:
I take magnesium for arthritis, but I can't seem to find any information online about using it thus. All I know is that it works for me (and my parents too). The pain and swelling in my fingers goes down if I take magnesium daily when symptoms appear. If anyone has more information on magnesium for arthritis, I would really appreciate your sharing it with me.
