Er is veel onderzoek gedaan naar de werking van Magnesium op jouw gezondheid, de preventie en werking bij ziekte en aandoeningen.
Magnesium plays an important role in over 300 enzymatic reactions within the body including the metabolism of food, synthesis of fatty acids and proteins, and the transmission of nerve impulses. Magnesium is one of the seven essential macrominerals; these are minerals that need to be consumed in relatively large amounts – at least 100 milligrams per day. Lees meer
A growing body of evidence shows the effect of magnesium on serum glucose, HDL-cholesterol, and triglycerides levels, as well as on blood pressure, which strongly suggests that magnesium might play an important role in metabolic syndrome (MetS), a cluster of risk factors for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.

Tinnitus A high magnesium diet can prevent the dorsal cochlear nucleus from turning the dials all the way up and locking this in place as a memory. Lees meer
Low serum magnesium is associated with an increased risk of CHD mortality and SCD. Although low magnesium was associated with both carotid intima‐media thickness and heart rate, this did not explain the relationship between serum magnesium and CHD mortality or SCD. Future studies should focus on why magnesium associates with CHD mortality and SCD and whether intervention reduces these risks. Lees meer
Magnesium treatment is hypothesized to be effective in treating major depression resulting from intraneuronal magnesium deficits. These magnesium ion neuronal deficits may be induced by stress hormones, excessive dietary calcium as well as dietary deficiencies of magnesium. Lees meer
This study confirms that transdermal application of magnesium in the chloride form will raise magnesium levels within the body over a relatively short period of time. Additionally, the relationship between calcium and magnesium is important for many health aspects (for example bone building) and raising magnesium levels has a beneficial effect on the body ratio between calcium and magnesium. Again this study clearly demonstrated a beneficial effect in preventing calcium build up in body tissues meaning that the calcium could be correctly utilised. The results indicate that it is possible to increase cellular magnesium using a simple but effective transdermal compound. Lees meer
People who consume diets rich in magnesium have been reported to have a lower risk of cognitive decline in two observational studies. Specifically, one study followed more than 1,400 healthy older adults for 8 years and reported that higher dietary magnesium intake was associated with an 86 percent reduced risk of developing mild cognitive impairment for men but not women.

Magnesium may be helpful for regulating blood sugar and insulin levels in people who are overweight or obese. “A 2013 study found that taking higher amounts of magnesium helps better control insulin and glucose blood levels. This same study also showed magnesium helps with bloating and water retention,” says Dr. Sherry Ross, OB-GYN and women’s health expert at Providence Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, California.

Magnesium deficiency is related to factors that promote headaches, including neurotransmitter release and vasoconstriction . People who experience migraine headaches have lower levels of serum and tissue magnesium than those who do not.
However, research on the use of magnesium supplements to prevent or reduce symptoms of migraine headaches is limited. Three of four small, short-term, placebo-controlled trials found modest reductions in the frequency of migraines in patients given up to 600 mg/day magnesium . The authors of a review on migraine prophylaxis suggested that taking 300 mg magnesium twice a day, either alone or in combination with medication, can prevent migraines .
Magnesium could hold the key to preventing one of the most preventable causes of disability in middle-aged to elderly people, according to new research led by academics at the Universities of Bristol and Eastern Finland. “The findings do suggest that avoiding low serum concentrations of magnesium may be a promising though unproven strategy for risk prevention of fractures”.

Magnesium blijkt mogelijk geschikt bij behandeling tegen matige depressie.
Emily Tarleton van de universiteit van Vermont deed samen met collega’s onderzoek naar het effect van magnesiumtabletten, die zonder recept gekocht kunnen worden, op milde tot matige depressies.
Daaruit bleek dat magnesium veilig en effectief is en dat de effecten vergeleken kunnen worden met die van selectieve serotonine-heropnameremmers (SSRI’s, een vorm van antidepressiva), schrijven ze in PLoS One.
Magnesium kan mogelijk helpen om ons brein wel eens een stuk langer fit kunnen houden, blijkt uit dementieonderzoek onder 10.000 55-plussers. Magnesium zorgt ervoor dat zenuwcellen, in grote hoeveelheid aanwezig in het brein, beter signalen kunnen oppikken.” Bovendien heeft magnesium een ontstekingremmende werking. ,,Bij dementie takelen de hersenen langzaam af, giftige eiwitten brengen schade toe aan de vaten en er kan minder zuurstof bij de hersencellen komen. Dit proces gaat gepaard met kleine ontstekingen.” Bron
Effect of transdermal magnesium cream on serum and urinary magnesium levels in humans: A pilot study
In this two-week pilot study, transdermal delivery of 56 mg Mg/day (a low dose compared with commercial transdermal Mg2+ products available) showed a larger percentage change in both serum and urinary markers from pre to post intervention compared with subjects using the placebo cream. Lees meer
