Default Magnesium Question

I've been taking ZMA before bed on an empty stomach, no prob, execpt peeing early in the morning as Garrett noted.

How about mixing Mg powder into drinking water though, this would be cheaper that high MG mineral water that Eades recommends in one of his books. Mg is normally recommended to be taken away from calcium after all.
Usually i take all my vits/mins with food though, Dr Michael Colgan always recommends that.


Also Garrett, The zinc liquid you were taking, did you take that with food or away from food?

Tony,
I do a mixture of magnesium citrate powder and water (Natural Calm) with the zinc drops in the mixture (along with potassium iodide drops as well). Basically, I typically do 615mg Mg / 100mg Zn / 25mg KI, all before my early morning workout. I can't stand waking up to pee.

I can help you to procure either item, just contact my office.

Can someone explain why Ca (?) and Mg aren't supposed to be taken together? They're often sold together, anyway.
Also, I'm someone who can't take Mg at night - keeps me up. I do my calcium and Mg in the am, zinc at night.
