Supplements: The health benefits of magnesium

Magnesium has received a lot of attention in recent years as a supplement that offers numerous health benefits. Many adults do not consume enough foods that are rich in magnesium, so many health experts believe that we should consider magnesium supplements. In this post, I discuss the many health benefits of magnesium.

  15. Cristian InternationalTrade on November 25, 2021 at 10:41 am

    I have been used magnesium citrate which has been best form tolerated and absorbed by my body. I take 110mg pill( Swanson) one hour before sleeping. I sleep very deep and full of realistic dreams, I wake up with good vibe, with a strong erection anyways all night long😂😂😂 like a teenager, my blood preasure 117/75 and relax 65 heart b. The only issue would be in summer, I realized it makes my body temperature gets hotter, no fever, no high blood pressure, it is a sensation of my skin gets hot then I have to cool down with cold shower. Am I the only one who has this side effect? I’ve been thinking it may rise my hormones, like testosterone?

  23. Kimberly Valeska Mazariegos on November 25, 2021 at 10:50 am

    I’ve recently started to take a magnesium supplement before going to sleep each night and noticed that I’ve been waking up actually feeling well rested and no longer have the desire to stay in bed after waking up. Eventually I want to get to a point where I only get it through food instead of a supplement , but this is such a nice start.

  24. Denise Younger on November 25, 2021 at 10:50 am

    I take something called Magnesium Pop it’s really refreshing it’s in powder form tastes good and works well.

  30. Buddy Katz on November 25, 2021 at 10:56 am

    I was taking 250mg of Mag oxide and didn’t notice any change. I changed to 500mg per day before bed and within a few days, I felt much more energetic. Now I can’t possibly say the Mag oxide caused that but I was wondering if anyone else had that experience.

  31. Tim Berger on November 25, 2021 at 10:58 am

    Magnesium L-Threonate (Magtein) is the best form to take because it crosses the blood-brain barrier and benefits the brain.

  32. Aviccii Mmxx on November 25, 2021 at 11:00 am

  37. carl browning on November 25, 2021 at 11:06 am

    Why didn’t you explain the different forms/types of magnesium? And what they do and what it’s good for. Such as memory, or heart, or muscles and or bones, etc?

    I believe there are 8 different types of magnesium.

  38. Advocate Varun Rathi on November 25, 2021 at 11:07 am

    Take once in a week.

  39. Yuri Nama on November 25, 2021 at 11:10 am

    Doc magnesium complex and magnesium cylite is different from each other

  40. Matt Brighton on November 25, 2021 at 11:10 am

    First off, you look like a combination between Paul Rudd and Phil Mickelson. That’s not a bad thing. Good, informative video and I was in the ER last week for PVC’s. They suggested that I add a Magnesium supplement to my diet. I did. My question is that if it has all these benefits, why don’t we know about it? That’s to say, why isn’t everyone taking it since it seems to have no downside?
