I am taking calcium with magnesium and vitamin D plus I also take vitamin C daily and I find my stool is not the right consistency which can be bad for hemorrhoids. Too dry and hard is bad but too soft constantly cant be good either I assume. I eat plenty of fruit, vegies, hummus flax seed ….. I also have GERDs, a Hiatal Hernia and IBS. I am determined to control things with diet but I think I am going overboard with too much vegies, beans, and the magnesium in my calcium helps loosen up the bowels….. I’m trying to find a happy medium but its taking some doing and I’m not too comfortable yet. Should I take Vitamin C every day? or should I skip a day. I take 1000 mg, Ester C since I don’t tolerate citric very well.
