    Hi Eileen thanks for replying. I am unsure what the magnesium content in the Menopause Support tabs. It says 405mg tri magnesium dictrate. 56.7mg elemental magnesium per tab. So what dose magnesium should I be supplementing with? Thanks . Joan R

      HI Joan You count the 56.7mg as this is the amount that is bio-available so you could add in an other 200mg once a day.

    Am taking Menopause Support and is helping with fatigue and mood but still have aches and pains. Can I supplement with magnesium as well?

      Hi Joan Yes, you can take extra magnesium but for joint pain I would suggest a combination calcium/magnesium citrate supplement and you may also find the Devils Claw beneficial.
