  1. Hello there, I am 23 years old and 140 pounds. I've been trying to stop my motor tics and anxiety for years. I am taking royal jelly as supp, and will start taking this Magnesium Taurate but I am not sure about the dosage, could you give me a hand? It is 1250mg of Magnesium Taurate per tablet, and have a recommended dosage of 2 tablets per day (2500mg). But I have read on this forum that average dosage is around 500mg so it looks like to much of it per day. Breaking a tablet in half and taking 625mg per day could be ok? Or should I break it in 3 parts to take 416mg daily? http://www.vitacost.com/vitacost-magnesium-taurate-2500-mg-120-vegetarian-tablets
  2. Hello people, is Magnesium Gluconate a good type of magnesium for tics reduction? It is hard for me in my country to find good supps, all I have found is Magnesium Oxide and I know for this forum it is very bad absorbed, but what about this Gluconate one that I also found? Thanks
  3. Hello Sheila, here in Venezuela we are a living a strong shortage right now, so just finding the general food is dificult itself. It is hard for me to find substitutes for butter and cheese, for example. I am trying to eat healthy best I can, like avoiding junk food, sodas, candies, and that kind that harm our health anyway. My tolerance to Taurine was very bad, with headaches and somnelence for 5 days so I stopped it. But I am very optimism because I know this is part of the proccess. Multivitamic did not give me any side effect, now I will try it with B complex, see what happens and add later Magnesium and Calcium. Congratulations for your work, a fighter women to be proud for sure. thanks It is my pleasure!
