I am not sure about GNC, but I know in our local health food store the price is double what I pay on Amazon. So I stick with that source.

I am sure calling around you can find out though.

I get the 16ounce bottle in powder form for around $24. It lasts about 6-8 weeks or so.

In my local health food store they sell it for $47.95 which is highway robbery!

Good luck and God bless.

contact your GNC as each store has different products which are none GNC labelled. There are some items I get in one store I can't in another since different owners add more customer requested items than others.

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV?

Thank you! Do you know if you can get that at a GNC or similar store? I prefer to buy local when possible. I will definitely look into that. I suffer from major depression and I am on meds so I i talk to my psych dr. and he recommended a good supplement but had no idea what kind would I should try and said to ask a medical dr. Helped a lot! but at least I can look this up and see if it interferes with any of my meds. Thanks again!

I take Peter Gillham's Nautural Calm with Calcium. It is in powder form. I get if from Amazon.

It is a magnesium, calcium and vitamin d supplement. I scoop one teaspoon in hot water and let it dissolve and then add more water to complete the cup. The directions are on the bottle.

That being said, it is one of my top health regimens. I love it! It balances me out and right as I go to sleep at night I sip on a hot cup and it relaxes me soooo much!

I have always got the raspberry lemon flavor, the others aren't as tasty. I even put honey in it sometimes.

Apparently many of us are depleted in magnesium. I found this out after having my 6th and 7th children -twins. I was so depleted and was having all of these strange symptoms. I thought I was going through early menopause do to so many children.

After doing so much research on my symptoms and talking to other women in my similar situation I realized I was way low on magnesium.

You will need to balance it out though, sometimes I don't pay attention and take more than a tsp. at a time and that always sends me to the restroom.

Another reason why I swear by it is that it is water soluable and I know it is getting in me and not just running through me like some lower quality pills may do.

Good luck and I hope this helps.

This is my 2nd time starting SparkPeople. The first time I really didn't pay attention to the nutrition breakdowns available which was a big mistake. This time (first day was 1/22) I'm reviewing the feedback each day. I'm, also, not getting enough magnesium in my diet and wasn't sure where to find out how to handle it. Everyone's info here was very helpful especially the link to the Office of Dietary Supplements fact sheet on magnesium. I'm falling short with potassium, calcium and folate, but, now I know to go back to the Office of
Dietary Supplements and this team's blogs.

This is my first day on this team!

These are great suggestions, and I for one like to get my vitamins and minerals from food whenever I can. But, that being said, I also take supplements - a Calcium/Magnesium and Vit D combination pill. You can find it at almost any grocery store or health food store. :)

to much calcium constipates you, to much vitamin d causes bruising and yes to much magesium will cause the runs, but I rarely have that issue since my caclium intake due to primary parathryodism makes me constipated each day

My understanding is that magnesium, calcium, and vit.D are all "partners" in health. They work together for your benefit. Each one plays a part in helping your body absorb the other.

ie. If I take too much magnesium alone, I quickly get the "runs".

I take 1000mgs of it each day at bedtime since it helps with sleep and also helps out with your iexpelling materials in your intestinal tract.

I had some blood work last week, and I was told that I need more magnesium. I was told that supplements are not real good for you because they don't have gradual or continuous like distribution and our body needs new sources daily. I wanted to know where to find magnesium? Most articles I have read state chocolate. But that would not help my weight loss. I assume I would be in vegetables and fruits. But which ones? any suggestions?
