"Apparently, magnesium increases insulin sensitivity and may increase the secretion of insulin from the pancreas, which suggests that it may also be helpful after diabetes has been diagnosed. This does not mean, however, that you need a magnesium supplement. Foods rich in magnesium include whole grains (grains with their natural fiber intact) such as brown rice, barley, and oats, as well as green vegetables such as spinach and Swiss chard. Many bean varieties are also rich in magnesium. In the Harvard study, a "high" intake was about 400 milligrams per day."

"Many aging individuals, especially with chronic diseases who desperately need more magnesium cannot produce sufficient hydrochloric acid and then cannot absorb the oxide or carbonate. Sulfate is also important and has an influence over almost every cellular function. Sulfate attaches to phenols and makes them less harmful, and sets them up for being excreted from your kidneys. A lot of these potentially toxic molecules are in food. Sulfate is also used to regulate the performance of many her molecules. Many systems in the body will not function well in a low-sulfate environment."

"Most hospital patients admitted for heart disease have low magnesium levels. magnesium is given to all open-heart surgery patients to prevent irregular heartbeats and potentially fatal arrhythmias as well as to keep their blood pressure down. I start all my hypertensive Club members on regular magnesium tablets, working them up to 500 to 1,000 mg per day. For dosages of the other compounds, refer to www.drgundry.com."

"However MgCl2 crystals consist of dianions with magnesium coordinated to the six water molecules as a complex, [Mg(H20)6]2+ and two independent chloride anions, CI". In MgS04, a seventh water molecule is associated with the sulphate anion, [Mg(H20)6]2 +[S04. H20]. Consequently, the more hydrated MgS04 molecule may have chemical interactions with paracellular components, rather than with cellular components, presumably potentiating toxic manifestations while reducing therapeutic effect." MgS04 is not always the appropriate salt in clinical therapeutics."

"Magnesium magnesium aids in bone growth, and the absorption of calcium and vitamins C, E, and B complex. It promotes healthy nerves and muscles. magnesium deficiencies may result in skin problems, seizures, slow weight gain, and muscle weakness. Natural sources of magnesium are wheat germ, molasses, cod, carp, halibut, shrimp, green vegetables, and nuts. Manganese Manganese aids in cell function, and promotes cartilage and bone growth. Manganese deficiencies may result in poor growth, and problems with the joints and discs."

"Magnesium: Growing in Importance We suspect that magnesium is another mineral that offers more benefits to health than realized by nutritionists, who've long considered magnesium as essential to the nervous system. It's also a part of some key enzyme systems. It's possible, though, that magnesium has an important role in preventing heart disease. Low levels of the mineral have been linked to higher risk of heart attack. What's more, magnesium is found in bone, raising concern that a healthy intake of the mineral may help in the war against osteoporosis, too."

"YOU SHOULD TAKE A CALCIUM-MAGNESIUM SUPPLEMENT THAT CONTAINS A RATIO OF TWO PARTS CALCIUM (1,500 MG) TO ONE PART magnesium (750 MG). 7-Keto Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is one of the hormones produced by the adrenal glands. After being secreted by the adrenal glands, DHEA circulates in the bloodstream as DHEA-sulfate (DHEAS) and is converted, as needed, into other hormones. Since it is a precursor to testosterone, DHEA may help to build muscle. It is very unusual for anyone under the age of thirty-five or forty to have low DHEA levels."

"Without magnesium, calcium might not be fully utilized. Underabsorption of calcium can lead to menstrual cramps. As with a vitamin E deficiency, when the body does not have enough magnesium to support calcium absorption, many women report PMS symptoms such as mood swings, fatigue, headaches, and sleeplessness. Premenstrual chocolate craving is a phenomenon that has puzzled many physicians."

"After an unsuccessful attempt to prepare the above substance, by treating a product (magnesium boride), obtained by the action of sodium on a mixture of magnesium chloride and potassium borofluoride with hydrochloric acid, the author succeeded in preparing a spontaneously inflammable gas, which is doubtless hydride of boron, by first strongly heating a mixture of magnesium dust and boron trioxide,ó B203 + 6Mg = 3MgO + B2Mg3, and, secondly, treating the grey friable mass thus obtained with hydrochloric or nitric acid."

"For instance, intravenous magnesium sulfate has long been given to pregnant women with toxemia in order to prevent seizures. magnesium given in pharmacologic doses has the effect of decreasing neuromuscular excitability. Because it is a nutrient, magnesium is considered safer to give to pregnant women than anticonvulsant medications. Many holistic physicians, and now certain cardiologists, are beginning to catch on to other uses of magnesium. For instance, magnesium has recently been recognized to be of use in preventing abnormal heart rhythms during the acute phase of a heart attack."

"It revealed that the water hardness, the calcium and magnesium content, was higher in Nicoya than anywhere else in Costa Rica." To confirm this, Gianni used a water-testing kit; in each of the 20 or so households where he conducted interviews, he tested the drinking water. The result: "The water had such high levels of calcium and magnesium that I had to dilute it by 50 percent with distilled water just so that I could test it."

"This typically occurs with calcium and magnesium, and sometimes also with selenium and zinc. Calcium and magnesium are bulky, and some supplement manufacturers tend to use low values so that you can take fewer pills. For proper balance, the ratio of calcium to magnesium should always be about two to one. Keep in mind that it is always best to get the bulk of your vitamin and mineral needs from foods. There are many good books available that can help you create a healthy diet for yourself. Several are listed in the bibliography."

"Olives are rich in monounsaturated fat, with high proportions of essential amino acids, vitamins E and A, beta-carotene, calcium, and magnesium. COCONUT OIL Mature coconuts are used in the creation of health-enhancing coconut oil that is mostly solid at room temperature, so it is often referred to as coconut butter. Raw, unprocessed coconut oil smells fragrant like fresh coconuts, while most commercial coconut oils, including the brands commonly found in health food stores, are often deodorized and heat-processed, and therefore are not recommended."

"Up to half of the people suffering from migraines dont have enough magnesium in their bodies. It's been proven that supplementing with magnesium can help reduce the number and intensity of headaches. In one study, about 80 percent of the participants reported migraine relief while taking 200 mg of magnesium a day. But remember ?more isn't better. Too much magnesium can interfere with your calcium absorption. Experts recommend no more than 500 mg per day from supplements. It's a natural, inexpensive treatment without serious side effects."

"Department of Agriculture for the period 1963 to 1992, the vitamin and mineral content of fruits and vegetables declined dramatically: for example, calcium declined by 30 percent, iron by 32 percent, and magnesium by 21 percent in selected crops. America is a fast-food nation. If we aren't picking it up at a drive-through window, we're nuking it in a microwave. We cook fast, eat fast, live fast, and are on the fast track for dying due to diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. Supplements are not a panacea for a nutritionally deficient diet."

"Consult your doctor before taking magnesium supplements if you have myasthenia gravis or kidney failure. Omega-3 Fatty Acids Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids, which means your body needs them but cannot manufacture them. This means you must get these nutrients from your diet and/or through dietary supplementation. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in relatively high levels in certain fish and seafood, as well as in some plant sources (see chapter 5)."

"The result: "The water had such high levels of calcium and magnesium that I had to dilute it by 50 percent with distilled water just so that I could test it." Gianni then calculated that if the average Nicoyan consumed (through drinking, cooking, or making coffee) six liters of water daily, he or she would ingest a gram a day?for most people their daily requirement of calcium. And how does calcium-rich water explain longevity? Gianni pushed his plate aside to make room for his laptop."

"As protein is synthesized in the hair follicle, elements get incorporated permanently into the hairóboth toxic elements such as aluminum, arsenic, lead, and mercury, as well as essential ones such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Scalp hair is easy to sample, and because it grows an average of one to two centimeters a month, it contains a chronological record of your body's metabolism of certain elements and exposure to toxic ones. Remember, not all elements found in hair are bad."

"While these surveys look for common deficiencies such as iron; calcium; zinc; potassium; iodine; magnesium; selenium; manganese; vitamins A, C, E, Bt (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), and B6; folate (folic acid); and iodine, they ignore equally important nutrients such as essential fatty acids and the amino acids critical to proper detoxification. As you begin to remove toxins from your body, you'll want simultaneously to replenish your cells with as much good nutrition as you can get from both your regular diet and supplementation."

"Emily Kane, in an article published by the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians in HealthWorld Online, adds her recommendations, with the reminder to first consult with a nutritionist or naturopath: vitamin B-complex injected into the muscle every two to ten days; omega-3 fatty acids (such as raw flax or linseed oil, one teaspoon daily); omega-6 fatty acids, found in fish, and olive oil; vitamin B3, 500 milligrams at the start of the migraine; magnesium in doses of 400 to 800 milligrams daily; and Quercetin, 500 milligrams per day.

"In the case of heart disease, we see certain nutrients, such as magnesium, that are deficient in all patients. Common sense would then dictate that giving more than adequate amounts of these nutrients to people will help prevent or reverse heart disease. Herbs for Heart Health_ There are some herbs that are excellent for promoting cardiovascular health. Cayenne is a superstar because it contains the active ingredient capsaicin. Capsaicin lowers blood pressure and cholesterol and prevents heart attacks and strokes. It is a natural blood thinner."

"Usually it has more magnesium than calcium. Afterwards I asked patients whether they would like some chocolate and they told me they didn't need it. It really is connected. "Women in the sixth month of pregnancy will often send their husbands out for ice cream because the baby is starting to grow fast. The woman has a conscious need for dairy products because she knows they will bring her the calcium she needs, but she also says, 'Don't forget the pickles.' She knows, somehow, that she needs to acidify that calcium source for the baby."
