I don't know. I take glucosamine and chondriotin and never have a problem....until last week when I twisted my knee and now I am in some pain. I know that will go away as soon as it heals. I have never tried the magnesium..
This is the info I have been able to find.... it seems to have the most clearly stated facts.
magnesium regulates distribution of other vitamins and assists with energy production... Not joint pain specifically.
Epson Salts is seriously the best enema around.
Is there magnesium in Epsom Salts?
It is a dissovable granule form of magnesium.
I dilute 4 tablespoons in hot water.
DO NOT take it if you are going out.
Be careful if using it the first time.
