2017 study: desalinated water = lower serum mag

Seawater desalination and serum magnesium concentrations in Israel
http://jwh.iwaponline.com/content/15/2/296
With increasing shortage of fresh water globally, more countries are consuming desalinated seawater (DSW). In Israel >50% of drinking water is now derived from DSW. Desalination removes magnesium, and hypomagnesaemia has been associated with increased cardiac morbidity and mortality. Presently the impact of consuming DSW on body magnesium status has not been established. We quantified changes in serum magnesium in ...

2017 report: maybe those DRIs need some work, ya?

L-glutamine?

Has anyone tried L-glutamine?

Evaluation of anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties of L-glutamine.
Agents Actions. 1981 May;11(3):243-9.

    It was established that L-glutamine, an aminoacid, has marked anti-inflammatory activity and moderate analgesic activity. The drug was effective orally in suppressing various experimentally induced inflammatory reactions and did not show any gastric irritation in anti-inflammatory doses. It is observed that the anti-inflammatory effect of L-glutamine is not due to counter irritant action. It is suggested that it may ...
