I’m just another guy on the forum, just like you, jactac. I’m hardly the powers that be. I have no financial ties to these products. They are ones I use, and in my experience and opinion, are more effective and better formulated than the many other products I have researched. Your experience with magnesium not working for you may be dose related, or you may have digestive issues that prevent you from absorbing the magnesium. If the latter is the case, then the ReMag® product would be just what you need. Your experience with the bis-glycinate form of magnesium is a good example of how different magnesium compounds work better for particular maladies. Obviously, bis-glycinate is not a form you want to use with yours. But I wouldn’t be so quick to write-off magnesium’s potential to help you. You haven’t found the form and dose that works for you yet. With magnesium-deficient soils being used to grow our food these days, most people are deficient, and supplementing magnesium is critical, especially when your digestive system is inefficient in absorbing nutrients. I sincerely believe we’d also see less heart attacks and cardiac arrhythmias if more people would optimize their magnesium levels.
BTW, piperine, a compound found in black pepper, is found to exponentially increase the absorption of many nutrients when taken with them. In fact, some supplement manufacturers are beginning to add it to their formulations. I would be sure to use freshly-ground black pepper with turmeric [a potent anti-inflammatory] as it is very poorly absorbed in the gut. While I’m on the subject of turmeric, please source your turmeric carefully as much of the turmeric on the market is contaminated with lead and other heavy metals.I purchase mine from the Health Ranger store. Mike Adams, the owner, has a non-profit, state-of-the-art mass spec [ICP-MS] lab where he tests products for heavy metals, glyphosate, pesticides, and other toxins. All of the products he sells in his store are tested and rated. You can also send him other products: hair, water, food, supplements, etc for testing as well. I feel safer sourcing my turmeric here, knowing I’m not adding to my heavy metals body burden
Vitamin D3 [cholecalciferol] is important! But you should also be taking vitamin K2 [MK7 or menaquinone form]. for proper utilization of calcium and magnesium. The three work in synergism and need to be taken together.
