Objective: Current dietary guidelines recommend adequate intake of magnesium (310–420mg daily) in order to maintain health and lower the risk of cardiovascular disease. Recent evidence from animal and clinical studies suggests that magnesium may be associated with inflammatory processes. The objective of this study was to determine whether dietary magnesium consumption is associated with C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of inflammation, in a nationally representative sample.

Dietary magnesium intake is inversely associated with serum C-reactive protein levels: meta-analysis and systematic review
This meta-analysis and systematic review indicates that dietary Mg intake is significantly and inversely associated with serum CRP levels, which may be, at least in part, explained by inhibiting inflammation.
Dietary Magnesium Intake is Inversely Associated with Serum C-reactive Protein Levels: Meta-analysis and Systematic Review
It is indicated that dietary Mg intake is significantly and inversely associated with serum CRP levels, which may be, at least in part, explained by inhibiting inflammation.
High or low calcium intake increases cardiovascular disease risks in older patients with type 2 diabetes
It is suggested that “moderate” intake of 402–600 mg Ca/day and adequate Mg intake (or meeting RDA for Mg) with Ca:Mg intake ratio of 2.0–2.5 are important for reducing cardiovascular disease risks in older patients with diabetes.
Optimal Dietary and Plasma Magnesium Statuses Depend on Dietary Quality for a Reduction in the Risk of All-Cause Mortality in Older Adults
Optimal dietary Mg intake and plasma Mg depend on dietary quality to reduce the mortality risk in older adults and Cox’s proportional-hazards regression was used to evaluate the association between Mg and health outcomes.
Dietary magnesium and fiber intakes and inflammatory and metabolic indicators in middle-aged subjects from a population-based cohort.
Lower magnesium and fiber intakes were linked to hs-CRP >/= 3 mg/L in both the entire cohort and healthy persons, and reduced fiber intake was significantly associated with metabolic abnormalities.
Dietary Mg Intake and Biomarkers of Inflammation and Endothelial Dysfunction
A maturing body of evidence suggests that suboptimal dietary Mg intake status may affect metabolism and inflammation pathways ultimately leading to the clinical manifestation of T2D, metabolic syndrome, and CVD.
Association between Dietary Magnesium Intake and Hyperuricemia
It is indicated that dietary Mg intake is inversely associated with HU, independent of some major confounding factors, and this association remains valid for the male subgroup, but not for the female subgroup.
Magnesium intake and plasma concentrations of markers of systemic inflammation and endothelial dysfunction in women.
Magnesium intake from diet is modestly and inversely associated with some but not all markers of systematic inflammation and endothelial dysfunction in apparently healthy women.


C-reactive protein and glycemic control in adults with diabetes.
The likelihood of elevated CRP concentrations increased with increasing HbA(1c) levels, suggesting an association between glycemic control and systemic inflammation in people with established diabetes.
Association between dietary patterns and plasma biomarkers of obesity and cardiovascular disease risk.
Major dietary patterns are predictors of plasma biomarkers of CVD and obesity risk, suggesting that the effect of overall diet on CVD risk may be mediated through these biomarkers.
Magnesium Intake and Risk of Coronary Heart Disease among Men
Investigation of the relationship between magnesium intake and risk of coronary heart disease among men suggests that intake of magnesium may have a modest inverse association with risk of CHD among men.
Elevation of C‐Reactive Protein in People With Prehypertension
In unadjusted analyses, there was a step‐wise increase in the probability of elevated CRP across a wide range of BP categories and a substantial proportion of prehypertensive individuals have elevatedCRP independent of multiple confounders.
Relationship between serum magnesium levels and C-reactive protein concentration, in non-diabetic, non-hypertensive obese subjects
The results of this study show that low serum magnesium levels are independently related to elevated CRP concentration, in non-diabetic, non-hypertensive obese subjects.
Body mass index, diabetes, and C-reactive protein among U.S. adults.
These results confirm cross-sectional findings from previous studies that show elevated C-reactive protein concentrations among individuals who are obese or have diabetes.

This review examines various aspects of the changes in mineral bioavailability due to ageing, of data published on mineral intakes and status, and finally the dietary recommendations for this vulnerable population group.
Magnesium in drinking water and ischemic heart disease.
Funding agencies are urged to give priority to studies determining whether there are unforeseen adverse effects of magnesium for some population subgroups and whether the apparent benefit derived from low doses of magnesium in the development of IHD or IHD death is real.
Effect of weight loss and lifestyle changes on vascular inflammatory markers in obese women: a randomized trial.
A multidisciplinary program aimed to reduce body weight in obese women through lifestyle changes was associated with a reduction in markers of vascular inflammation and insulin resistance.
