...reference explaining that calcium prevents magnesium absorption, or that magnesium prevents calcium absorption.
This site recommends taking lots of calcium along with the magnesium supplements. This IMPLIES that magnesium interferes with calcium absorption, and not vice versa, but it is stated as a recommendation without any explanation behind it. Heck, for all I know, it may be that the calcium actually AIDS in the absorption of magnesium.
I don't want to be stubborn about this, but I am POSITIVE I have seen more than one scientific abstract claiming that excess calcium interferes with magnesium uptake.
Thanks again for the link, but I will continue to research this further.
