I usually take 1,000 mg of calcium per day and 400-500 mg of magnesium. Are these amounts enough for someone with chronic lyme?

Dr. Burrascano's Sept. paper says this "the best source is magnesium L-lactate dehydrate." Does anyone else use this type of magnesium?

Does anyone have another type of magnesium or calcium that they are happy with? If so, what brand?

Thanks,
Jill

Tortiecat,
I take the glycinate form of Magnesium because it is supposedly more absorbable than the MG Oxide that most supplements have. I believe it is the KAL brand. I take about 500mg per day. I also take 500mg of Calcium.

It is too soon to tell whether it is helping but my neurologist actually is the one who suggested I try it...you would think my LLMD would have. I hope to see noticeable improvement by the time I have taken it for three months.

If it helps my myoclonic jerking and muscle weakness, then I will post it to declare its benefits.
