Question Natural calm. . .magnesium -- hurts stomach?

My dd has tons of tummy issues - we believe related to leaky gut. Natural calm (magnesium) has been very helpful in getting her to have regular BM's but now she's getting a tummy ache just right when she takes it (at night). In the morning she wakes up fine. . . I wonder if she just gets a little bloated from it. Because when I took it, I got burpy and bloated so I never took it again. Since I wanted to try it for the calming affect, I just stopped taking it.

Has anyone experienced this? Is there a solution -- like maybe going to pill form of magnesium? Or should I not worry since it's just RIGHT when she takes it

do you keep taking it and ignore the pain knowing it helps or quit taking it

Hubby refuses. I'll take it if I have a neck spasm.

Instead of Natural Calm, I usually take his Cal/Mag. It has less magnesium per dose, and also has calcium.
With magnesium being a muscle relaxer, it makes sense there's be tummy issues. Have you tried reducing the amount for a little while?

yes, I couldn't stomach it. I just take cal/mag in pill form even though I have to swallow so many pills.

Interesting.....I never had any tummy problems when I took it, but I also never took it regularly really, just in spurts (when I remembered, LOL).

I've never had any problems. It worked wonders for the braxton hicks that took my breath away and woke me at night. I still take it and haven't had problems. My kids haven't either.

We get a lot of dietary calcium, maybe that's why?

Does she take it w/ meals or on an empty stomach?

Yeah, it turns us into "insta-gurgle" in the belly.

Default Re: Natural calm. . .magnesium -- hurts stomach?

At first it wasn't bothering her at all As soon as her bm's got considerably softer, I backed off to a 1/2 dose. On that 1/2 dose is when her tummy started hurting. I definitely know what she means because I feel exactly how zak described . . . that insta gurgle!

Right now, we are doing none and I have started clay at night for her after hearing people talk about clay healing leaky gut

It's always like a merry go round with her tummy

That's odd that it didn't hurt at first but now it does. I think it's good that you stopped -good to listen to her body - hope she feels better soon
