1. does a magnesium deficiency raise blood pressure?
A magnesium deficiency can indeed promote high blood pressure. A deficiency of this trace element can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and cause risk factors such as diabetes and heart rhythm disorders. A change to magnesium-rich foods is usually not enough. In order to get a magnesium deficiency under control in the long term, magnesium should be supplemented in the form of food supplements. You can choose between magnesium capsules and magnesium tablets.
2 What is magnesium?
Magnesium is an essential trace element. It fulfils many different functions in the organism. Magnesium plays a major role in the activation of enzymes and the transmission of nerve impulses. The human organism contains about 25 mg magnesium. Most of the trace element is found in the bones and is essential for bone strength.
3 What is the daily magnesium requirement?
According to the recommendation of the German Society for Nutrition (DGE), adults should consume about 300-400 mg of magnesium per day. The European Food Safety Authority EFSA, which sets the NRV, recommends 350 mg of magnesium per day for men and about 300 mg for women. Children should consume between 170-300 mg of magnesium depending on their age and size.
In general, you should always bear in mind that the daily requirement is always dependent on many factors. These include weight, height and gender. In addition, life circumstances such as pregnancy or breastfeeding can also play a role.
4 Why is the magnesium concentration measured?
The magnesium concentration is measured if a magnesium deficiency is suspected. This is indicated by very different symptoms. The best known signs are calf cramps, severe fatigue, diarrhoea and palpitations. A pronounced deficiency can also cause loss of appetite, vomiting and nervousness.
Since the human organism cannot produce magnesium itself, magnesium must be taken in daily through a balanced and varied diet. The trigger for a magnesium deficiency is therefore an insufficient intake of the mineral. To be able to measure the magnesium concentration, both the blood and the urine must be measured.
