Magnesium Deficiency May Trigger or Cause the Following Conditions:

Magnesium Deficiency Plays a Role in Numerous Chronic Conditions

Magnesium deficiency is a culprit in many chronic conditions, and is the most under-diagnosed electrolyte abnormality in clinical practice today. It is suggested that routine magnesium testing can materially enhance the care and health outcome of the patient.16

Magnesium deficiency plays a role in all of the following chronic conditions…

Magnesium: America’s Lost Mineral

Magnesium deficiency among U.S. adults is unprecedented and widespread. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, 68% of US adults consume less than the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of magnesium, and 19% consume less than 50% of the RDA. 1

A large segment of the U.S. population may have chronic latent magnesium deficiency that has been linked to conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure (hypertension), premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and psychiatric disorders…among a staggering list of conditions.

Additionally, magnesium deficiency is so prevalent among critically ill patients that physicians are encouraged to test serum magnesium levels in all critically ill patients.2 A study conducted at the Intensive Care Unit of Los Angeles County/University of Southern California Medical Center determined that 65% of critically ill patients were magnesium-deficient.3

Why are so many of us deficient in magnesium? One reason is that many illnesses (both acute and chronic) trigger magnesium wasting (a rapid depletion of magnesium). Magnesium is lost more rapidly than it can be replaced. Another main reason is that the highly processed modern American diet has been stripped of essential magnesium.

Although it might be possible for food manufacturers to fortify foods with magnesium, factors such as bioavailability, stability, and taste on the final product all have to be considered. Furthermore, the modern trend of utilizing water softeners and water purifiers has completely stripped magnesium out of the drinking water supply—so much so that bottled water companies are now selling magnesium-fortified water in an effort to replenish magnesium in the U.S. drinking water supply.
