    If I'm not mistaken, my superhero, Russell Blaylock MD recommends it.

    If you're hypothyroid, taking Cal/Mag can make matters worse. This was my own experience. Too much magnesium and calcium will block thyroid hormones from entering the cell, even if your body produces enough thryoid hormone. This is what I experienced when I started taking extra calcium and magnesium. I thought I was helping myself but was wondering why I was even more tired. I think it's important to first determine if you really have a deficiency first, or at least monitor yourself closely for signs of fatigue when you start supplementing with Cal/Mag.
    Here's a good article on the link between thyroid function and Cal/Mag.

    Thank you. My g/f had already told me about mag. I take slow-mag, i purchase it at walgreens its about around 9.00 but, i have to go to the rest room ..my bowel movements come dailey now, with ibs ..its a good thing. I couldnt just take the mag as a vitimin..it had my tummy bubbling allthe time and i had strong gas. Slow-mag is better for me.
