Certain types of magnesium that are taken with milk may cause competition with calcium, resulting in reduced magnesium absorption. A good calcium/magnesium ratio would be 2:1. However, the magnesium present in Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal is in the form of magnesium bisglycinate, so it will be properly absorbed and not enter into competition with calcium. Bariatric Advantage® NutriTotal may therefore be mixed with milk. Ask your doctor for advice if you want to know more.
