mwilson21 asked: Just starting to take 400mg Magnesium Glycinate. Wondering how much B6 you recommend to go with it. I am a 46 yr old female. Also wondering your thoughts on the Trace Minerals Research brand of Ionic Magnesium? Thanks!
A good starting point would be to assess just what your Mg status is. It’s a sure bet that you’re deficient (~85% of Americans are), but it’s a good rule of thumb to educate yourself before supplementing. It’s a $59 test with either DirectLabs or Request-A-Test. If you’re below 6.0 mg/dL you are deficient — regardless of the absurd reference range that they put on this lab test.
I would recommend using about 50 mg of B6. Your other option is to just buy it already formulated, like Jigsaw Health’s (theirs is even the active form of B6, P5P)
As a rule, we put all our clients on Anderson’s CMD (Concentrated Mineral Drops) to get a broad spectrum set of minerals. In addition, we have clients use one of three ionic water products: Trace Mineral, Complete H2O, or Angstrom Minerals. More & more research is showing the importance of getting Mg++ in water.
Good luck with your program & please keep me posted on your progress!
