Are there any side effects?
No. Instant CalMag-C is composed of 100% natural ingredients. Some people experience loose bowels with increased amounts.
Some people can get loose bowels. This is usually due to the fact that magnesium is a natural stool softener. It is not toxic nor should it cause ill effects. If your stools get loose, cut back the dose to your tolerance level and once you’ve had that for a while, slightly increase it till you either reach the recommended dose or your personal tolerance level.
It is safe for small babies in very small doses, like the tip of a teaspoon. As their tolerance increases, you can increase it slowly. It is great for teething, colic and upsets.
