question: what was your max daily dose of magnesium while you were experimenting?
jimmylegs wrote:the weakness is something I have definitely experienced when taking too much magnesium. it blocks calcium which your muscles need to contract, so yay, another balancing act :S
jimmylegs wrote:do you remember or did you track what you had eaten leading up to that particular day last week? was your hydration the same as usual?
jimmylegs wrote:also, as I understand it 400mg per day is recommended daily minimum for magnesium, whereas 600mg would be more in the optimal intake range. 'best bet' recommendations for daily mag go as high as 1200mg, but personally that would take me out
jimmylegs wrote:so as for combinations, have you tried a few days with 400mg magnesium glycinate?
jimmylegs wrote:I can relate to the variable lucidity! I suspect I've been burning through magnesium like crazy what with all the stress from school and injury and surgery and physio. definitely need to keep it topped up! (although I can't pin my improvements on magnesium specifically and usually just throw a bunch of other stuff in as well, knowing that everything I'm putting in is good, and something will stick )
jimmylegs wrote:a cup of brown rice provides almost 100mg of magnesium. according to whfoods, brown rice is an excellent source of manganese, and a good source of selenium, magnesium and tryptophan. manganese helps the body utilize several nutrients including biotin, thiamin, ascorbic acid, and choline.
i wonder if your food context was a contributing factor?
the ca and mg the intake ratio is supposed to be 2:1.
Even the commonly agreed-upon ratio of 2:1 calcium to magnesium found in many supplements is a major stumbling block overcoming the overcalcification of our population.
In fact, it's a myth. This so-called recommendation traces back to French scientist Jean Durlach who warned that the 2:1 ratio was a "never to be exceeded" level when considering calcium intake from all sources (food, water and supplements). His warning has been greatly misunderstood and is taken as a recommendation of a 2:1 calcium-to-magnesium imbalance instead of something to avoid.
i can't even handle any calcium supplements
sounds good. do you have a handle on your potassium intake? phosphorus?
Conventional agriculture has had a significant impact on global phosphorus cycles (Bouwman et al, 2011). Conventional farming methods result in higher soil phosphorus and lower soil magnesium compared to organic farming (Gosling & Shepherd, 2005; Bulluck et al, 2002). In light of this dynamic, it is disconcerting to observe that phosphorus excess and dietary magnesium deficits are widespread in the (US) human population (Ford & Mokdad, 2003). High phosphorus and low magnesium intakes are associated with diverse human health consequences (Calvo & Uribarri 2013a; Johnson, 2001). More disturbing still is the observed interaction between soil phosphorus, magnesium, and toxic cadmium. Soil phosphorus contributes not only to crop phosphorus content, but to toxic cadmium uptake by crop plants (Grant, 2011). At the same time, magnesium deficit in plants helps mask this cadmium excess (Hermans et al, 2011). The phosphorus-magnesium dynamic in agricultural fields is by no means the only reason for the similar imbalances seen in the human population (Calvo & Uribarri, 2013b), but its potential contribution to the problem should not be discounted, especially given the toxic cadmium aspect.
