Product causes bowel flush

Posted by iHerb Customer on Aug 11, 2014 | Verified Purchase

For me, living in this body, use of this product at the rate of 2 caps/day over a period of 4-6 weeks inevitably leads to a bowel flush. Very unpleasant. It appears that the formulation has too much magnesium oxide, at least for the requirements of my body. By switching to another product which uses chelated magnesium, I am able to take a sufficiently large enough dose to meet the body's need for magnesium. I do not understand why magnesium oxide is so popular among supplement makers. Most likely it is relatively inexpensive to manufacture. According to Wikipedia magnesium oxide is used to make wallboard and refractory material for furnaces, among other things. I do suspect that as ingredients go magnesium oxide is quite inexpensive which should count for its popularity as a dietary supplement when magnesium is called for. Look around at the various magnesium supplements: many are formulated with magnesium oxide.

Good digestive aid

Helps me a lot. Before you try it be sure yours is a low stomach acid (HCL) situation. And beware--I have been told that the symptoms of low stomach acid and excess stomach acid are much the same. Do the research.

digestive aid

Ussd with caution, may eliminating a certain kind of indigestion in the elderly. I am told that stomach acid (HCL) tends to decrease with age. If I miss my Hcl with the evening meal, I can count on bloat and great difficulty sleeping. Before using, be sure you are aware of symptoms of too much HCL and how to relieve them. Remember that HCL stands for hydrochloric acid. Keeping the capsule in the mouth until it ruptures can be very uncomfortable. So use with care.

Useful for chronic fatigue?

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jun 17, 2017 | Verified Purchase

Ribose, a 5-carbon sugar, is useful in stimulating energy production in mitochondria when the usual energy paths are exhausted. Ribose is marginally sweet to the taste, and not sweet at all when compared to sucrose (table sugar). Forward-looking cardiac physicians have found that ribose can restore human energy levels when the normal pathways are exhausted due to cardiac malfunction. Please see the book by Dr Stephen Sinatra Sinatra MD, "Metabolic Cardiology", 2011. For wisest use, see the reference. It is my understanding that Ribose works on the cellular level, facilitating aspects of the Krebs cycle.
