Dr. Lundberg, thank you for your article on magnesium. I am a multiple sclerosis nurse and often encourage MS pt’s to take 250-500 mg in magnesium to help with muscle spasms, fatigue and weakness. As you know most people are on proton pump inhibitors and patients need to be educated on supplementing magnesium. Those MS pt’s have been doing better since starting the supplements. I take 250 mg everyday because I am a runner and this has helped a great deal with my muscle fatigue. Thank you, Cindi…
How do we teach this to alot of docs??

In the present health care-medicine, we have too many rules. Magnesium is the Emperor. Zinc is the Monarch.HDL is the Guardian Angle(contuse&Chapman 2006). Niacin rules the Hypertension, and Hypertension is the MOTHER of all diseases known to mankind. Honestly, I am sick and tired of all those monarchs, who in final analysis turned to be naked emperor.

Magnesium bisglycinate is easily absorbed requiring approximately 25% dosage when compared to citrate and others. It also crosses the blood brain barrier and is therefore far more effective. Still, there is nothing like a plate of fresh leafy greens from the garden. Unfortunately we cannot all have that availability so magnesium supplements ar…
Thanks DR George Lundberg. great talk
I personally use mega mag 400 mg by trace minerals in the ionic form and amazon.com has the best magnesium oil for the price. Ancient minerals has good products too but are very pricey.
Sounds good enough for me!
True, true, true, oh so true. Pregnant women get magnesium IV when they present with high blood pressure or preterm labor. More pregnancy websites advocate supplements when pregnant. Taking herbal classes, the teacher also says many ailments in the body can be prevented by supplements. There needs to be more emphasis on this topic.
Are there other factors or elements necessary in the utilization of magnesium/ What does the body need to utilize magnesium?
