Our expert says:
Although Epsom salt does contain magnesium it is magnesium sulphate which is usually used as a purgative. Slow Mag contains magnesium chloride which generally does not have quite as much laxative action. So try the Epsom salts, but if you find that it causes diarrhoea then you will have to stop as constant diarrhoea results in the loss of essential minerals from the body.
