Magnesium for good health and a good quality of life

Athletes have long appreciated magnesium because it contributes to normal muscle function and reduces fatigue. Recent studies have shown that people who are well supplied with magnesium are more satisfied all round with their health and quality of life.

Magnesium is one of the best-studied nutrients and is therefore a classic in orthomolecular medicine, which deals with the use of minerals, vitamins, and trace elements to prevent and treat disease.

As a cofactor of more than 300 enzymes, magnesium is involved in numerous functions in organisms, such as signal transmission and hormone and neurotransmitter release. A magnesium deficiency usually manifests itself through various symptoms, such as muscle cramps and cardiac arrhythmia.

THE MAGNESIUM SUPPLY IS CLEARLY RELATED TO THE STATE OF HEALTH AND QUALITY OF LIFE.

Magnesium and quality of life

A study has shown that individuals’ magnesium supply is related to their state of health and quality of life. In this study, blood analyses of 81 people (48 women and 31 men aged between 16 and 90 years; average age: 45) were conducted. Thirty-nine individuals had an average or above-average magnesium supply, whereas the remaining had a below-average level and thus a poor magnesium supply.

As a reference value for an adequate magnesium supply in adults, the German Society for Nutrition recommends a daily intake of between 300 and 400 mg per day, depending on age. Unfortunately, however, our average daily dietary intake of about 175 mg per day is significantly lower.

All 81 persons examined also completed a questionnaire that obtained information on the emotional, health, and psychological states of the respondents. The results of the questionnaires and the blood analyses were then correlated.
 
AN ABOVE-AVERAGE MAGNESIUM STATUS IMPROVES VITALITY, PSYCHOLOGICAL WELL-BEING, AND PHYSICAL FUNCTIONING.

The examination yielded clear results—the better a person’s magnesium supply, the better the assessed quality of life. Persons who had an above-average magnesium status rated the categories of pain, psychological well-being, and vitality clearly better than those with a below-average status.

Previous surveys also found that a good magnesium supply can reduce stress or help one exert less effort to achieve the same performance.

Nutritional scientist Dr. Ina Viebahn states that the mineral is irreplaceable for the proper functioning of our metabolism, and new effects of magnesium are constantly being discovered. It also has a positive effect on allergy and is used in pain therapy.

FOR BETTER ABSORPTION, THE BODY SHOULD BE PROVIDED DIFFERENT MAGNESIUM COMPOUNDS.

The mineral is present in several compounds, such as magnesium citrate and magnesium carbonate. Each compound must first be dissolved to allow absorption in the intestines. The solubility of magnesium depends on the pH value in the digestive tract, which differs for individual magnesium compounds.

This is made more difficult by the fact that there are strong pH differences between our very acidic stomach and the alkaline small intestine. Taking medication, stress, and nutrition can also quickly change this acid–base ratio. Providing the body with different magnesium compounds is therefore of great advantage to achieve the greatest bioavailability possible.
