Check whether you are at risk of magnesium deficiency
Magnesium is included in insulin regulation, and its deficit due to increased loss via urination can occur in people who developed insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes, which also makes them more susceptible to cardiovascular diseases.
Chronic diarrhoea and reduced fat absorption which occur as a consequence of Chron’s disease, gluten sensitivity, and inflammatory bowel disease, can lead to magnesium depletion over time.
Persons who consume large amounts of alcohol in combination with poor eating habits may also lose magnesium by way of vomiting, diarrhoea, liver disease, as well as a disordered kidney function, all of which cause the loss of large quantities of magnesium via urination.
Research indicates that the elderly suffer from a reduced absorption of magnesium from the bowel, as well as from its excessive loss via the kidneys and urine. This group is at an even greater risk due to taking chronic disease medications, such as diuretics and proton pump inhibitors, which also impact magnesium levels.
Another natural source of magnesium, apart from magnesium-rich foods, is Mg Mivela. One litre of this water naturally contains approximately 343 mg of magnesium and can effectively support the daily intake for anyone with increased needs of this mineral.
