I just want to clean my stomach. Would this be good or bad?
Magnesium is a naturally occurring mineral. Magnesium is important for many systems in the body especially the muscles and nerves. Magnesium citrate also increases water in the intestines, which may induce defecation.
Magnesium hydroxide is used as a laxative to relieve occasional constipation (irregularity).
I suggest you talk to your Pharmacist first.
If there are no problems there is no need to fix them! If you are not having any constipation or bowel problems, there is no need to "cleanse". Just be sure to stay well hydrated by drinking 64 oz of water a day-that is the only cleanse you need. The water will help to clean you from the inside out. Being well hydrated will help your body funtion better by helping your liver and kidneys clear toxins naturally. You will feel better and look healthier because it helps keep your skin healthy too!

I took Magnesium Citrate yesterday at 3:20 p.m. Didn't have a bowel movement until 10:00 p.m., then?
