Constipation. We've all had it at some point. It starts with a little discomfort around the belly followed by few or no bowel movements which only exacerbates the condition.

You may also pass dry or lumpy stool that feels hard.

Additionally, some people might have a hard time passing stool and get a feeling that they have not passed all the stool out of their system.

If you are one of these people, you're in luck.

Taking a few milligrams of magnesium every day can rid you of this discomfort.
