The only downside to magnesium supplementation is um... loose stools. Some forms are better than others, magnesium glycinate or magnesium malate. You might want to divide your doses or take it with your calcium foods.
Apparently magnesium oxide is the form most poorly absorbed.
I take magnesium citrate, but then I have a super long colon (so the doc told me following a colonoscopy) so it doesn't have that effect on me. The colon is where water is absorbed.
That's cool about the chocolate/magnesium connection.
Hey I will take any excuse to have some! LOL
I've also heard that chocolate is high in copper.
