BENEFITS OF MAGNESIUM
Magnesium can act in a way related to calcium channel blocker drugs, which block the entry of calcium into cells. Magnesium and calcium compete for cellular membrane sites and oppose each other in many reactions in the body. This may explain why under certain circumstances magnesium has been found to potentially improve vision in people with glaucoma. And, it may account for magnesium's ability to lower blood pressure. Along with potassium, it is one of the major intracellular electrolytes. It is also one of the three major minerals found in the formation of bone.
SUPPLEMENTING WITH MAGNESIUM
It has been shown to be helpful in cases of people with diabetes, as those with diabetes tend to be low in magnesium. And, it has proven to be beneficial to women who experience bladder problems, especially disturbances in bladder control and the sense of "urgency". One double-blind trial found that women who took 147 mg of elemental magnesium twice daily for four weeks had better bladder control and fewer symptoms than women who took a placebo.
Magnesium supplementation also may reduce dehydration of red blood cells in sickle cell anemia patients. And, preliminary research suggests magnesium can reduce hyperactivity in children, in particular those with attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) who have lowered levels of magnesium. In a preliminary but controlled trial, 50 ADHD children with low magnesium who were given 200 mg of magnesium per day for six months had a significant decrease in hyperactive behavior.
