FROM OUR EXPERTS
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.
Those of us who have diabetes are often deficient in magnesium. Several studies have suggested that taking a magnesium supplement can help us control our blood glucose.
Several other conditions seem to benefit from taking magnesium supplements. Research published just this month is the strongest evidence yet of the benefit of taking magnesium.
People with more magnesium in their blood may reduce their risk of death from cancer by as much as 50 percent, according to a report in the current issue of Epidemiology. High serum levels of magnesium were also related to a 40 percent lower risk of all-cau...
I have suffered from migraines for 20 years. I recently had a full hysterectomy to try to eliminate my menstrual migraines. but I continue to suffer the rest of the month.

BUT, it can also make things worse or make no difference at all, and there is absolutely no way to predict which way it will go for a patient.
B2, magnesiu, and Coenzyme Q10 are ...
What exactly is a "black box" warning? Simply put, it's the strongest warning that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) can require on a drug's packaging. The FDA requires the black box warning when studies suggest a drug can cause a serious or life-threatening side effect. The text of the warning is set apart from other information in a black box, so that doctors, pharmacists, and patients can easily see it. What did the FDA advisory panel recommend? The FDA itself hasn't made a decision about acetaminophen, but an FDA advisory panel has made 10 recommendations concerning the drug. Among those recommendations, the panel voted to remove acetaminophen-containing painkillers such as Vicodin, Tylenol 3, and Percocet from the nation's formularies. It also voted in favor of removing all acetaminophen-containing prescription drugs from the market. But the panel voted to keep over-the-counter (OTC) pills that combine acetaminophen and other ingredients, su...
