The Doctor's Best High Absorption Magnesium Dietary Supplement was recommended to me after I researched magnesium supplements. My doctor had suggested taking magnesium to combat leg cramps and insomnia. I started using Epsom salts to soak my feet in or even take a bath in the evenings and it helped.
*Epsom salt is Magnesium Citrate
As time went on, stopping every day to do an Epsom salt soak became bothersome. We have a busy schedule and can get caught up. Plus, we were going through a lot of Epsom salt between me and B3. (Epsom salt soaks are amazing for kids with sensory issues.)
We tried magnesium butter. Which I believe we received the most benefit from as you are putting the magnesium on your skin and it absorbs. The problem with magnesium butter is it can be expensive. Not to put a price on health, but it is a consideration.
So, a magnesium supplement was recommended. The guidelines are that it needs to have a high absorption rate. I ordered Doctor's Best High Absorption Magnesium Dietary Supplement.
The first thing I noticed was the tablets are large and dosage is 2. It took a couple days to get used to taking them. The do not have a coating so they will dissolve some. They are not too horrible as my 11-year-old can take them with no problem.
Since I started taking them, I get better sleep. Plus, I don't feel drugged like I have with other homeopathic or prescription alternatives. (Note* I take the magnesium in the morning) In addition, the leg cramps I was having that were quite painful have minimalized. At worst now I will feel a tight muscle and rubbing it out with some fractionated coconut oil and lemongrass essential oil takes care of it in minutes.
My 11-year-old also takes these tablets and his sensory issues are at the level that taking an Epsom salt bath daily were. He is also seeing a reduction in migraine headaches since taking them.
To focus on this brand, I feel that we get a good absorption rate. It is nice to have alternatives. I will continue to purchase these supplements. If you are interested in the oils that we use, please email me at faith(at)heaveninourhearts.com
