Magnesium deficiency: Everything you need to know
Muscles, bones, nervous system: Magnesium is involved in lots of the human body’s vital processes. Unfortunately, we can’t produce the mineral ourselves but need to introduce it through our food. If we take too little it may cause magnesium deficiency over the long term. Read this to find out what the signs are and which groups are particularly at risk.
A link has also been established between magnesium deficiency and migraine. Since nerves become more excitable when magnesium levels in your blood fall, migraine patients need to be particularly careful about their magnesium intake.
Typical symptoms of magnesium deficiency may also be signs of other underlying diseases. If your symptoms do not improve by taking magnesium over a prolonged period you should consult your doctor about the cause.
