Why Should I Supplement with Magnesium? – InVite Health Podcast, Episode 359

magnesium Invite Health Podcast, Episode hosted by Jerry Hickey, Ph. Subscribe Today! Magnesium is a very, very important mineral. It’s a macromineral, which means you need more of it than of some other minerals. Unfortunately, many Americans do not get sufficient magnesium from their diet. Various medications and diseases may also cause levels of this mineral to decrease.†  

Why this mineral is so important

Magnesium is needed for hundreds of processes in the human body. If you lack this nutrient, your body just does not work well. This can contribute to issues with blood pressure, heart health, blood sugar, energy levels, bone health and more.† Here are some other ways that magnesium functions in the body:
  • Helps with adequate melatonin release, which is important for sleep, bone health and immune function
  • Binds to ATP, which allows it to work and create energy in the body that is used for breathing, walking, talking and more†
  • Seals the mineral calcium into bones, helping to promote stronger, healthier bones
  • Fights chronic, low-grade inflammation that can damage your heart, blood vessels, brain and more†

Who needs a magnesium supplement 

Magnesium is one of the nutrients that people consistently lack as they grow older. Diabetics also lose this mineral in their urine, which is tragic because it is needed to help control blood sugar and for insulin to work correctly. Drinking alcohol also depletes magnesium levels. People with digestive tract issues have trouble absorbing the nutrient. People with kidney disease as well as asthmatics may also lack this important mineral.†   Many people do not get enough of this vital mineral through their diet. Magnesium is found in foods such as legumes, green leafy vegetables, seeds, nuts, whole grains and avocados. But for those who do not eat enough of these foods, supplementing is a very good idea.† Adult women need about 310 mg of magnesium a day, while pregnant women need about 350 mg. Adult men under 30 need 400 mg a day, but when men and women are past the age of 30, they actually require additional magnesium. Women need at least 10 mg more a day and men need at least 20 mg a day.†
