I'd like to take Mg as part of the Iodine protocol. Is high intake of Mg (600mg+) safe for someone with a low serum(blood) Calcium level?
Basically, my hair analysis reveals that I have hi Ca and hi Mg level while my blood test reveals the exact opposite. (Yes, my thyroid, parathyroids, adrenals are totally out-of-whack).
So, the plan is to lower my TISSUE Ca and increase my SERUM Ca. I really don't know how to approach this. I'm not sure if it's wise to take any Ca at all at this point. Should IÖ
(1) take Mg ONLY to lower the excess Ca in my tissue, and risk even lower serum Ca
(2) take both Ca and Mg to increase both my serum Ca and Mg levels, and in what ratio?
I read that excess Mg (just like Vitamin C) would just be excreted in your stool. So, thereís no danger of high intake of Mg. In fact, you can just do a bowel tolerance test to check for your optimal intake level. Mg is smart enough to optimize your Ca. Once, it's done it job, the excess would be excreted in your stool. So, don't even think about taking Ca (and or D3) until your Ca level is balanced both tissue and serum.
Also, thereíre so many forms of Mg. Mg chloride (transdermal), Mg oxide, and Mg citrate. Which one is better? I also read that chelated forms are more bio-available. Is it better when Mg is chelated to amino acid as opposed to citrus acid? Or, just take a broad spectrum Mg, NOT chelated, like UltraMg (from Source Natural)?
