About 60% of adults in the United States do not consume the estimated average requirement for magnesium, but widespread pathological conditions attributed to magnesium deficiency have not been reported. Nevertheless, low magnesium status has been associated with numerous pathological conditions characterized as having a chronic inflammatory stress component. In humans, deficient magnesium intakes are mostly marginal to moderate (approximately 50% to <100% of the recommended dietary allowance… Expand

TLDR
Animal studies indicate that moderate or subclinical Mg deficiency primes phagocytic cells for the release of proinflammatory cytokines leading to chronic inflammatory and oxidative stress, which suggests that Mg decreases the risk for chronic disease. Expand
Serum Magnesium and Abdominal Obesity and its Consequences
TLDR
Correct Mg supplementation improves insulin sensitivity even in normomagnesemic, overweight, nondiabetic subjects, thus emphasizing the need for an early optimization of Mg status to prevent insulin resistance and subsequently type 2 diabetes. Expand
Chronic magnesium deficiency and human disease; time for reappraisal?
TLDR
Appreciating the vital role of magnesium for normal cellular function and bone health may help in formulating a well-considered and justifiable approach to serious questions about chronic magnesium deficiency. Expand
Importance of plant sources of magnesium for human health
TLDR
C crop breeding and cultural practices, through modifying the amount of Mg in plant-origin foods, can have a significant impact on achieving an adequate dietary intake of MG for health. Expand
Magnesium Intake and Chronic Disease in Humans
TLDR
The goal of this chapter is to summarize briefly the epidemiological data relating magnesium to major chronic diseases. Expand
Hypomagnesemia and its relation with chronic low-grade inflammation in obesity.
Introduction: The accumulation of visceral fat in obesity is associated with excessive production of proinflammatory adipokines, which contributes to low-grade chronic inflammation state. Moreover,Expand
Magnesium: Basic Nutritional Aspects
Abstract After brief overviews of historical nutritional aspects of magnesium and its biological roles, the roles of absorption, cellular transport, excretion, tissue storage, and sweat in bodyExpand
Magnesium in Obesity, Metabolic Syndrome, and Type 2 Diabetes
TLDR
In conclusion, an appropriate dietary pattern, including the right intake of Mg2+, improves metabolic syndrome by reducing blood pressure, hyperglycemia, and hypertriglyceridemia and occurs through the modulation of gene expression and proteomic profile. Expand
There is chronic latent magnesium deficiency in apparently healthy university students.
TLDR
There was a high frequency of subclinical magnesium deficiency in the adults assessed, that could be related to low dietary magnesium intake. Expand

High fructose consumption combined with low dietary magnesium intake may increase the incidence of the metabolic syndrome by inducing inflammation.
TLDR
Experimental evidence is discussed showing that the metabolic syndrome, high fructose intake and low magnesium diet may all be linked to the inflammatory response, and the expected consequence would be an increased risk of developing insulin resistance when magnesium deficiency is combined with a high-fructose diet. Expand
Skeletal and Hormonal Effects of Magnesium Deficiency
TLDR
The notion at dietary Mg intake at levels not uncommon in humans may perturb bone and mineral metabolism and be a risk factor for osteoporosis is supported. Expand
Dietary Magnesium and C-reactive Protein Levels
TLDR
Individuals with intakes below the RDA are more likely to have elevated CRP, which may contribute to cardiovascular disease risk, according to this nationally representative sample of adults in the US. Expand
Magnesium supplement intake and C-reactive protein levels in adults
TLDR
People whose total daily magnesium intake was below the RDA were significantly 40% more likely to have elevated CRP regardless of whether they were taking magnesium supplements, according to adjusted logistic regression analyses. Expand
Antioxidants and the cardiomyopathy of Mg-deficiency.
TLDR
It is suggested that chronic hypomagnesemia results in a pro-inflammatory condition leading to excessive production of oxygen-derived free radicals, and subsequently, the tissue antioxidant capacity is overwhelmed and oxidative tissue destruction results. Expand
Moderate magnesium deprivation results in calcium retention and altered potassium and phosphorus excretion by postmenopausal women.
TLDR
The changes indicate that an intake of 4.40 mmol (107 mg) magnesium/d is inadequate for postmenopausal women because of changes in cellular ionic balance that may lead to pathophysiological conditions. Expand
Magnesium deficiency is associated with insulin resistance in obese children.
TLDR
Serum magnesium deficiency in obese children may be secondary to decreased dietary magnesium intake, and increased intake of magnesium-rich foods may be an important tool in the prevention of type 2 diabetes in obesity children. Expand
Magnesium Intake and Incidence of Metabolic Syndrome Among Young Adults
TLDR
Magnesium intake was inversely associated with incidence of metabolic syndrome after adjustment for major lifestyle and dietary variables and baseline status of each component of the metabolic syndrome. Expand
Magnesium and the inflammatory response: potential physiopathological implications.
TLDR
Experimental findings showing that magnesium modulates cellular events involved in inflammation suggest that inflammation is the missing link to explain the role of magnesium in many pathological conditions. Expand
