Somehow, I ran out of my supply of magnesium tablets and recently made a note to order more. I do take a multi-vitamin with minerals, but that gives me only 125 mg of magnesium each day.
This is well below the official U.S. and Canadian recommendations for daily intake of magnesium . For a man of my age I should be getting 420 mg, although no more than 350 mg should come from supplements.

He practiced orthopedic surgery for more than 30 years, now blogs at Dr. Barkat Charania , and helped me research this article.
Since our blood levels of magnesium don’t tell us if we have enough, researchers have reported few human studies, he told me. Still, he brought to my attention 41 studies of magnesium, most of them in relation to diabetes. Citing just three of these studies is enough to make my point: 1. “Magnesium deficiency is not uncommon among the general population: its intake h...
