Magnesium deficiency symptoms and what can cause a deficiency.

Sixty percent of the population in the US alone have a magnesium deficiency to some extent. What is it worldwide? In severe cases, intravenous supplementation is necessary.

Treatments when there's magnesium deficiency symptoms.

Although the kidneys are very efficient at maintaining body levels, they fall short in cases where the diet is deficient. Magnesium oxide or magnesium hydroxide or milk of magnesia depend on stomach acid for neutralization before they can be absorbed, and thus are relatively poor oral magnesium sources, on average.

Magnesium aspartate, chloride, lacate, citrate and glycinate each have bioavailability four times greater than the oxide form, and are equivalent to each other per amount of magnesium. These are the ones to take to help with magnesium deficiency symptoms.

If you have a teenager, do any of the magnesium deficiency symptoms above ring a bell? This is very common in adolescents, and children. Have you ever seen any children that liked dark green leafy vegetables, wheat germ, or cashews, foods that most children don't like?

Children seldom eat the foods that are rich in magnesium, but will drink large amounts of milk. Remember what we said earlier about loads of calcium (milk) and a deficiency of magnesium, and what can happen? Something to think about in young ones.

What current research has found out about magnesium deficiency.

  • In developed countries, magnesium intake is less than it should be, with older individuals more prone due to diseases and so forth.
  • And one to remember, after age seventy, magnesium absorption is about two thirds of what it is at the age of thirty.

Magnesium is essential for all life, human and plant. Without magnesium we wouldn't last long. If you have any of the magnesium deficiency symptoms above, or even suspect you do, have a test done to ease the mind.
