1. magnesium for muscle cramps

When people have frequent cramps in their muscles, the cause is often a deficiency of magnesium. Muscle cramps can be very painful and usually increase with age. Often the cramps originate in the legs and extend up into the thighs. Taking magnesium in the form of supplements can successfully relieve muscle cramps.

    2 How much magnesium should I take in a day?

    According to the recommendation of the German Nutrition Society (DGE), adults should consume about 300-400 mg of magnesium per day. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), which sets the NRV, recommends 350 mg of magnesium per day for men and 300 mg for women. Children should consume between 170-300 mg of magnesium depending on their age.

    3. under what conditions do you need more magnesium?

    • Athletes have an increased need for magnesium. Through increased sweating, minerals and electrolytes are excreted and thus the need for magnesium increases sharply. Taking magnesium after training has a muscle-relaxing effect and replenishes magnesium stores.
    • Stress can cause the body to lose more magnesium. The reason for this is stress hormones, which stimulate cells that release magnesium from the stores. However, the excess magnesium is excreted again through the urine and thus the human organism needs more magnesium.
    • During pregnancy and breastfeeding, women have an increased need for magnesium because they have to provide for their offspring.
    • Interactions with medications can cause increased magnesium to be excreted or the magnesium absorbed cannot be properly processed. For this reason, it is best to discuss the use of certain medications in combination with dietary supplements with a doctor.

    4. magnesium in the form of food supplements

    If you want to increase a magnesium level that is too low with a dietary supplement, you should definitely pay attention to the form of the active ingredient and its origin. Magnesium capsules are particularly suitable for increasing magnesium levels. They are very well tolerated and are utilized by the body to a high degree. The preparation should also not contain any chemical additives such as magnesium stearate or microcrystalline cellulose. If you buy a preparation from Germany, you can be sure that the product has also been produced safely and is of high quality.
