    Hello,
    I have had issues with any Magnesium supplement since 2004-5, which coincided with a worsening of GI issues. Since then I've tried different oral forms, foot baths and dermal magnesium to no avail. Regardless of the formula or delivery system it would always trigger a bad intestinal response.

    To give you an idea 50mg of any oral form are enough to bother my stomach and small intestine for hours.

    A couple of months ago I tried a chewable tablet by Seeking Health, which is 100mg of DiMagnesium Malate. To my surprise I didn't get any stomach upset. I tried one more the next day and still no issues, so I kept going. These days I am taking 2 tablets a day with no side effects and I'll probably try to increase up to three.

    I just wanted to share the experience as maybe this could be helpful to folks with similar hyper sensitivity to Mg supplements. For me it's been a real surprise, given that I had already given up all hopes.

    The product name is "Active Magnesium" by Seeking Health. Price is typically around 20 bucks, so not the cheapest around, but it's a good brand. They use xylitol as sweetener and there's no mag stearate.

    (It goes without saying that I have no interest in peddling this specific product other than for the reasons I explained)

    If you try it let me know if it works for you as it did for me.

    Thanks a lot for sharing. I react to all magnesium supplements so far, I am gonna try the DiMagnesium Malate.

    Do you let it dissolve in your mouth?

    Yes. The taste is not bad and the only sugar used is xylitol which isn't bad either.
