Why does it say to not store magnesium citrate in the refrigerator? Also, why must it be used in 24 hours? I have to take it @ once a month. Had diverticulitus and a foot of my colon removed. Have constant constipation. Have used stool softeners, fiber, sennocot and miralax. Had a colonscopy and endoscopy recently. Doctor said nothing unusual. He did remove several pre-cancerous pollips. (Please excuse spelling) Mother had colon canser. Aunt had stomach cancer. Thanks for any help.
