This formula has twice the Magnesium as Calcium and you need only a small amount of mg's to do more than other formulas where 1000mg's are perhaps prescribed by doctors. Usually only ONE TABLESPOON PER DAY IS NEEDED unless there is bone loss. In this situation 3 tablespoons per day just before bed along with a natural Vitamin D3 liquid. Oh ... you might also add some STRONTIUM and COLLAGEN to the mix for extra fast results. Amazingly we have discovered that a large number of people with TMJ experience pain simply due to bone loss of the jaw.
