    Magnesium Oxide is poorly absorbed and is the active ingredient in some anti-diarrhea medications. I, of course, make sure not to buy it as a magnesium supplement. Last week, I noticed that one of my supplements that has more than one ingredient had magnesium oxide as the source of magnesium. I quit taking it and have much less problem with overactive bowels in the last week.
