1. what to do in case of magnesium overdose / overdose?

An overdose of magnesium cannot be caused by diet. If you consume too much vitamin B12-rich food, the excess vitamin B12 is excreted via the urinary tract. An overdose of vitamin B12 often occurs if the recommended daily amount of vitamin B12 in the form of food supplements is not adhered to over a longer period of time. The same can happen with an increased vitamin B12 infusion. An overdose of vitamin B12 exceeds the recommended daily amount of 250 mg. An overdose of vitamin can have unpleasant consequences. An intake of more than 300 mg of magnesium per day causes severe diarrhoea and gastrointestinal problems. Those affected also complain of nausea and vomiting. An extreme overdose of vitamin B12 can even cause muscle weakness and a drop in blood pressure. For this reason one should always stick to the recommended daily amount of magnesium and always consult a doctor if you have any questions.

    2 What is the daily magnesium requirement?

    According to the recommendations 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. magnesium during pregnancy and lactation

    Pregnancy demands maximum performance from the female body. Besides the change of the body, a completely new phase of life begins, in which the woman's mind also changes. Of course, it is not surprising that a magnesium deficiency can occur more often. The mother-to-be must not only provide for herself, but also for her unborn child. Furthermore, the female body excretes more magnesium via the kidneys during pregnancy due to the change in metabolism. In addition, the magnesium requirement increases during pregnancy. Taking magnesium in the form of food supplements can be very useful for the pregnant woman. On the one hand, a magnesium deficiency can be remedied, on the other hand, the magnesium level can be maintained.

    • Stress Situations
    • Diseases like diabetes
    • Taking certain medicines (e.g. laxatives)
