Mineral Supplements - Magnesium


Magnesium has helped me and many others to reduce some pain and control muscle spasms that many with fibromyalgia experience. Although this and other herbal supplements has helped me, these are NOT a cure for fibromyalgia. There is no magical cure, supplement or FDA approved medicine that exists, so please take the information with a grain of salt.

I ask two more things of you:

1) Check with your doctor before adding an herbal/mineral supplement to your regimen as it may interact with your prescription medication and/or conditions.

2) Read labels before buying any herbal product. Its best to steer clear of fillers and chemicals if at all possible. Not all SUPPLEMENTS are created equal.

(In coming weeks, Ill have more detailed information for you about taking herbal and mineral supplements. These are basic, but important guidelines.)

Magnesium

My doctor told me about Magnesium as an herbal to help me with pain. Magnesium deficiency has been linked to a lot of ailments over the years. These include: obesity, diabetes, migraines, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. The herbal is also supposed to help with sleep rhythms and may help you sleep better as a result.

In food, Magnesium is found in greens like kale, spinach and root vegetables. I take at least 500 mg of Magnesium a day and have noticed it helps to reduce the redness (inflammation) related to my pain.

Some facts about Magnesium:

  • It promotes muscle relaxation.
  • It is essential for energy production and nerve functions.
  • Along with calcium, it is involved in the formation of teeth and bones as well as the clotting of blood and other aspects of circulation.

  • How much should you take per day?

    Well, that depends on many factors including your age, gender and body weight. If you check with your doctor, he or she will be able to tell you the exact amount you need. The RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) is between 300 500 mg per day, on average.

    Possible Side Effects include: diarrhea and nausea. You may also notice an increase in fatigue/lethargy, confusion, and difficulty in breathing.
