"Calcium is an important essential nutrient, but it must be balanced by adequate magnesium if it is not to cause damage to the cells and the body as a whole."

TrüMag Magnesium Supplement for Constipation Relief
Nutritional laxatives such as magnesium are becoming a popular constipation relief therapy for those who are resistant to fibre therapies.
Constipation is characterised by fewer than three stools a week. The stool is hard and dry and often in the shape of small pellets pressed together and is difficult to eliminate. Constipation makes a person feel bloated and uncomfortable. Severe constipation is defined as less than one bowel movement per week. Chronic constipation, on the other hand, is constipation that continues for an extended period of time.
Chronic constipation caused by medications may require long-term laxative therapy. In this case, patients may consider rotating their use of different kinds of laxatives to maintain regular bowel movements and minimize the risk of laxative dependency.
Some things that contribute to constipation are:
Additional causes of constipation include medications, irritable bowel syndrome, abuse of laxatives, and specific diseases or medical conditions like pregnancy.
Understanding Constipation and How You Can Treat It
As the food you eat moves through your colon, the water and nutrients from the food are absorbed. Muscle contractions in the colon push the waste towards the rectum, and by the time the waste gets there, most of the water has been absorbed. If the colon absorbs too much water, or the muscle contractions are too slow, stools will become dry and hard and you will have constipation.
If you are taking in adequate quantities of fibre in your food and yet suffer from constipation, you probably need to look at nutritional laxatives like Natural Calm TrüMag for constipation relief. Research has found that deficiency of magnesium may contribute to constipation. A 2006 study on the association between dietary fiber, water and magnesium intake and functional constipation among young Japanese women undertaken by Murakami K, Sasaki S, Okubo H, Takahashi Y, Hosoi Y, Itabashi examined the intake of magnesium with constipation in 3835 participants. Published in Eur J Clin Nutr (2006 Dec 6) the study concluded that low magnesium ntake was associated with constipation.
Taken in right quantities Magnesium can work as a gentle non-habit forming laxative. The laxative effect of magnesium appears to come through two different mechanisms. Magnesium relaxes the muscles in the intestines which helps to establish a smoother rhythm. Magnesium also attracts water; this increased amount of water in the colon serves to soften the stool, helping to make stools easier to pass and providing relief from constipation.
Magnesium for Chronic Constipation Relief
If you suffer from chronic constipation, increase your intake of a magnesium supplement like Natural Calm TrüMag to the point that you have enough non-digested magnesium in your system. This non-digested magnesium acts as a gentle laxative because it has not been converted to ionic form before it enters the digestive system.
Jesse Lynn Hanley, M.D., in his book, ‘Tired of Being Tired’, proposes the following way to relieve your constipation: “Begin with 200 milligrams magnesium oxide or magnesium citrate—you may increase the dosage in 200-milligram increments until your bowels move regularly. The dose for magnesium is individual, so begin low and increase the dosage as needed. Reduce the dosage if you experience loose bowels. Unlike irritating laxatives, magnesium does not create laxative dependency.”
Most over the counter laxatives contain Magnesium oxide—a form of magnesium that cannot be used nutritionally and only has a laxative effect. Studies have shown that magnesium citrate (TrüMag ) is better absorbed. In fact, magnesium citrate supplements such as TrüMag are better than even the common constipation remedy ‘milk of magnesia’.
Even as you add a supplement like Natural Calm TrüMag to you diet, you can make a few changes to your diet and lifestyle. Limit foods that increase constipation (cheese, white bread, meat and processed food) and drink more water to keep you hydrated. Set aside time after breakfast or dinner for undisturbed visits to the toilet. Also do not ignore the urge to have a bowel movement - this can contribute to constipation.
