1. are magnesium tablets useful?
In order to prevent a lack of magnesium, a balanced diet is very important. A magnesium deficiency is often caused by malnutrition or wrong diet. A magnesium deficiency can be prevented in good time by eating healthy food. In general, it is best to eat fruit and vegetables every day to be supplied with all vitamins and nutrients. Older people are particularly often affected by a magnesium deficiency. Nursing and pregnant women have an increased need for magnesium. The supply can be supported by magnesium tablets. Magnesium tablets are very useful because they not only make it easy to remedy an existing magnesium deficiency, but also minimise the risk of developing a deficiency through regular intake.
2 What is magnesium?
Magnesium is an important trace element. In nature it occurs as a rock in the earth's crust. However, magnesium is also found in seawater and plant dyes. The human organism contains about 25 mg magnesium. Most of the trace element is found in the bones and is essential for the strength of the bones. Magnesium is essential for human life, but the body cannot produce magnesium itself. For this reason, magnesium should be taken in daily through a healthy and balanced diet. Magnesium plays a major role in cell division and the maintenance of a healthy nervous system.
Magnesium is essential for:
- Muscle function
- Energy metabolism
- Stress Regulation
- biochemical reactions
- Nervous System
- Muscle tone
- Electrolyte equilibrium
3. the daily requirement of magnesium
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.
4 Which foods contain magnesium?
There are numerous natural sources that contain a lot of magnesium. These can be easily incorporated into the daily food intake. In contrast to other minerals, the need for magnesium can be met not only by animal foods, but also easily by plant foods.
In general, the more natural the food is, the higher the mineral content in the end. This means that the more the food is processed, the lower the magnesium content. After magnesium has been absorbed through drinks and food, most of it is stored in our bones. The human organism can fall back on this storage in a deficiency situation.

Magnesium content in mg/100 g
- Nuts: approx. 130

5. conclusion: Are magnesium tablets useful?
Taking magnesium tablets can be very useful. On the one hand, magnesium supplementation can counteract and prevent a deficiency. On the other hand, an acute magnesium deficiency can be easily remedied. For example, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding have an increased need for magnesium. It is difficult to cover this requirement completely with food. In this case the supplementation of magnesium is also very useful.
