Supplementing with Magnesium, is it dangerous? Would really appreciate insight!

Hi fruities,

 

I have a question here that I have been trying to figure out for myself, but I am left in the dark... I supplement with Magnesium oxide, from the brand Pure Vegan. This is what it does: Pure Vegan Mag O7 uses a proprietary process of creating oxides of magnesium
and nascent oxygen.

 

Now I was wondering, as I don't want to ever get to deal with osteoporosis, can supplementing with magnesium mess with your calcium levels?

 

Thanks a lot for reading, I hope to hear from you :)

Hey

How are you using the magnesium specifically? Magnesium, like almost all supplements, should only be used therapeutically (ie. when there is evidence of a proven - by blood work - clinical deficiency) in high doses for a short period of time (ie. no longer than 2-3 months).

If you are taking any supplement for longer than that, you need to question why you are doing it. If you are still clinically deficient after 3 months of therapeutic dosing, you need to be looking at why your body is losing magnesium. Either your diet is inadequate, or you are engaging in activities which are severely depleting magnesium by subjecting it to stress, either through poor dietary habits, emotional stress, excessive exercise, insufficient sleep, or recreational or pharmaceutical drug use.

Magnesium really shouldn't be necessary on this diet if you are doing it right, since you should be doubling, tripling or even quadrupling the RDA if you are eating sufficient calories, variety and greens.

Yes, magnesium can interfere with calcium metabolism. In the short term, as long as calcium is sufficient in the diet, it shouldn't be a big deal for most people (unless they are also clinically deficient in calcium), if only used for 2-3 months.But for longer than this, you are just masking the symptoms for the real reason - OR you are just taking something mindlessly without understanding why you are taking it.

Most people need to take magnesium supplements because they end up eating diets too high in calcium and phosphorus and sodium and don't actually consume enough magnesium in their diet anyway. And because smoking, drinking caffeine and alcohol, getting insufficient sleep and taking meds can deplete magnesium. On this diet/lifestyle, it really shouldn't be necessary.

Take care

Why are you taking a supplement? 

Most supplements are sold to us based on some fears some salesperson such as doctors, the media, and supplement stores instilled in us.  A good salesperson will convince you that you need something you did not know you need, and then sell you the cure.

As long as you are eating a low fat diet, and enough calories from whole raw fruits and leafy greens, you will fulfil your requirements. 

I do not bother to track things anymore, but some people take comfort in programs like :

Peace, PK

there is a nice book called "the magnesium miracle",

the author says that your bodies defense against too much magnesium is the runs.

and it can be affected by calcium, in that your body likes calcium so much it interferes with the absorption of magnesium.

The greens in this lifestyle have more magnesium and should be a large part of the diet.

You can absorb magnesium through your skin, via epsom salts/magnesium sulfate or magnesium oil/magnesium chloride/ocean water. 2 cups of epsom salts in a warm bath for an hour.

This is a little late but I am learning about magnesium just now.
