The magnesium content in food consumed in the Western world is steadily decreasing. Hypomagnesemia is associated with increased incidence of diabetes mellitus, metabolic syndrome, all-cause and coronary artery disease mortality. We investigated the impact of supplemental oral magnesium citrate versus magnesium oxide on intracellular magnesium levels ([Mg2+]i) and platelet function in healthy subjects with no apparent heart disease. In a randomized, prospective, double-blind, crossover study, 41… 

Tables from this paper

Magnesium Citrate Protects Against Vascular Calcification in an Adenine-induced Chronic Renal Failure Rat Model
TLDR
MgCit exerted a protective role in VC in adenine-induced CRF rats; thus, it may be a potential drug for the prevention of VC in patients with CRF.
Magnesium supplementation affects metabolic status and pregnancy outcomes in gestational diabetes: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.
TLDR
Magnesium supplementation among women with GDM had beneficial effects on metabolic status and pregnancy outcomes and the change in serum magnesium concentration was greater in women consuming magnesium than in the placebo group.
Perspective: The Case for an Evidence-Based Reference Interval for Serum Magnesium: The Time Has Come.
TLDR
Data is presented from an array of scientific studies to support the perspective that subclinical deficiencies in magnesium exist, that they contribute to several chronic diseases, and that adopting a revised serum magnesium reference interval would improve clinical care and public health.
Spectrophotometric determination of magnesium oxide content in supplements of magnesium
TLDR
The content of MgO was determined in pharmaceutical supplementations using spectrophotometry, based on the reaction between magnesium ions and eriochrome black T at a wavelength of 535 nm, which corresponds to the daily Mg recommended values.
Magnesium The Missing Link To A Healthy Heart
TLDR
This article provides important information to protect yourself from unnecessary cardiac events and shows that experiencing a heart attack or stroke because of a simple magnesium deficiency does not need to happen.
Addressing potential role of magnesium dyshomeostasis to improve treatment efficacy for epilepsy: A reexamination of the literature
TLDR
To better understand the potential role of magnesium deficiency as a causal factor in epilepsy, more convenient and accurate measurement methods should to be developed and employed in randomized, controlled trials of oral magnesium supplementation in epilepsy.
THE EFFICACY OF DIFFERENT ORAL MAGNESIUM SUPPLEMENTS FOR MIGRAINE PREVENTION: A LITERATURE REVIEW
TLDR
Magnesium citrate seems to be the preferred oral magnesium supplement for migraine prevention; however, further studies comparing the efficacy of different oral magnesium supplements are needed.
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter study assessing the efficacy of magnesium oxide monohydrate in the treatment of nocturnal leg cramps
TLDR
MOMH was shown to be effective in the treatment of NLC as well as safe and well-tolerated and increased cellular absorption rates were demonstrated in an ex-vivo setting.

Magnesium-L-aspartate-HCl and magnesium-oxide: bioavailability in healthy volunteers
TLDR
Two formulations of magnesium-L-asparate HCI and Magnesiocard R granules were compared with magnesium-oxide with respect to bioavailability, tolerability, and stool frequency, suggesting that the magnesium preparations exerted their laxative effect mainly in the colon.
Effect of Magnesium L-Lactate on Blood Pressure in Patients with an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator
TLDR
The use of magnesium L-lactate in patients with an ICD results in significant improvement in systolic blood pressure at 12 weeks, which may be maintained through 24 weeks, and a large number of subjects with ICDs have an intracellular magnesium deficiency not captured through serum magnesium determination.
Oral Magnesium Therapy Improves Endothelial Function in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease
TLDR
Oral magnesium therapy in CAD patients is associated with significant improvement in brachial artery endothelial function and exercise tolerance, suggesting a potential mechanism by which magnesium could beneficially alter outcomes in CAD Patients.

TLDR
Using the EXA tm analysis it has shown been determined that Mg 2+ levels are significantly reduced in many physiological states which may lead to serious pathological conditions.
Low blood mononuclear cell magnesium in intensive cardiac care unit patients.
Influence of magnesium substitution therapy on blood lipid composition in patients with ischemic heart disease. A double-blind, placebo controlled study.
TLDR
The hypothesis that magnesium deficiency might be involved in the pathogenesis of ischemic heart disease by altering the blood lipid composition in a way that disposes to atherosclerosis is supported.
Magnesium supplementation improves indicators of low magnesium status and inflammatory stress in adults older than 51 years with poor quality sleep.
TLDR
The findings show that many individuals have a low magnesium status associated with increased chronic inflammatory stress that could be alleviated by increased magnesium intake, and an association between magnesium status and sleep quality that needs further study to definitively determine whether a high magnesium status is a cause or an effect of poor sleep quality.
