Magnesium is a key nutrient for healing & repair. Deficiency in magnesium leads to disturbed healing and can cause numbness, tingling as well as increased inflammation, potentially leading to headache, migraine and fibromyalgia.
Unfortunately, the intake of magnesium in people eating a western-style diet is consistently shown to be lower than recommended. The use of some medications can also result in decreased levels of magnesium. These include antacids, antibiotics, anti-hypertensives (for high blood pressure), Digoxin (heart medication), oral contraceptives and HRT).
The likelihood that you are deficient in magnesium increases if you suffer with more than one sign of deficiency (e.g. constipation, headache / migraine, muscle tension / cramping, numbness / tingling, osteoporosis, high blood pressure or poor sleep.)
Magnesium is usually safe, but it may interfere with the absorption of some pharmaceuticals, notably bisphosphonates (used for osteoporosis), calcium channel blockers (for high blood pressure) and some antibiotics. If you take any medication, talk to your doctor before you are supplementing magnesium.
Because magnesium is ‘bulky’ most multivitamins only contain a small amount. It is therefore usually better to supplement magnesium separately. Chelated forms like magnesium malate or glycinate are better absorbed
