Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for August 27, 2006


Previous Night Vibration Status: Weak
Morning Vibration Status: Weak

I was quite surpised to have a vibration last night and this morning since I took 300 mg of magnesium citrate right before going to bed. I didn’t have any calcium so I’m not sure what happened.

My new friend David got back to me again:

Some people get good results with magnesium citrate which is a form of chelated magnesium. Don’t buy it in combination with calcium. I take chelated calcium, but I take it separately. Theoretically, people need twice as much calcium as magnesium and, therefore, most calcium/magnesium supplements have twice as much calcium as magnesium. But most Americans are far more deficient in magnesium than in calcium, so they need more supplemental magnesium than calcium.

At your weight you should take 800 mg of chelated magnesium daily and, if severly deficient, 1,000 mg daily. Magnesium and CoQ10 have separate functions, but they do beneficially interact somewhat.

This may be enough but, at your weight, you may need 200 mg of CoQ10 daily. I suggest that you see how you feel after taking 100 mg of CoQ10 and 800 mg of chelated magnesium before deciding if you need more. I also take more than 1,000 mg of chelated magnesium daily because of my weight.

Riboflavin 5 phosphate is more effective than plain riboflavin. How do you know that you have a riboflavin deficiency? You may be deficient in other B-complex vitamins as well — especially B12. B12 deficiency is more common than is generally recognized because many people don’t absorb B12 well through the stomach. I take sublingual B12 which I let dissolve under my tongue. The tissue under the tongue often absorbs B12 better than the stomach does.

The ability of selenium to cut cancer deaths in half was discovered in a large placebo-controlled double-blind clinical study and the results were published in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association, yet they have largely been ignored. Also often ignored is the need for vitamin C. Most people should take at least 1,000 mg of vitamin twice a day.

Best wishes, David
