Magnesium
« on: February 04, 2014, 06:37:16 PM »
Hello all, I remember reading ( i think somewhere here on the forum ) that taking magnesium daily is supposed to help. So I got a bottle. But I'm not sure how much of it I should take at a time....

Anyone else take this, and if so, now much a day? Thx

Hi Kissa...

Magnesium is essential to all cells of all known living organisms.  It is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body and it is necessary in over 300 reactions within the body.

Natural food sources of magnesium include: green, leafy vegetables, like spinach, nuts, beans, peas, soybeans, and whole-grain cereals.  Eating whole foods is always best.  Magnesium can be lost during refinement and processing.

If you are going to take a magnesium supplement, choosing the right one is very important.  The most widely available supplement on the market is magnesium oxide.  Unfortunately, magnesium oxide is also the least absorbent form of magnesium.  You should take time to research the different forms of magnesium that are available, and choose a highly absorbable one.  I take Solaray magnesium asporotate.

The recommended dose of magnesium is 350 mg/day for adults and children ages 9 and up.  Large doses of magnesium can cause diarrhea, and can actually be toxic. 
 
I hope this helps to answer your question, Kissa.

The very best to you!...  Chuck

I've been taking 400 mg Magnesium Glycinate every morning for the past several months, and I've found it to be immensely helpful in reducing the amount of ectopic heartbeats I get (PVC's). This in turn has lowered my anxiety levels, because the PVC's tend to spike my anxiety, even though I know they are really nothing to worry about at all (I've had 2 EKG's and a 2 week ECG which all came out normal and diagnosed benign PVCs). I am an anxious 23 year old who has some level of hypochondria too.

I'm wondering if taking an additional 200 mg in the morning (600 mg total) would further help to reduce the remaining PVC's that I do get from time to time. I'm also wondering if it is a safe dosage. From what I have read, anywhere from 400 mg - 800 mg in people with Magnesium deficiency's is considered safe and ideal for supplementation.

Anyone have experience with relatively high supplemented doses of magnesium?

Consider trying to get most of the 200mg from food. About a quarter cup of pumpkin seeds or half a cup of almonds will get you about 200mg day, plus other minerals.
