What is a good level of magnesium to take? I read about so many benefits to magnesium. http://www.lef.org/abstracts/codex/magnesium_index.htm?source=search&key=too much magnesium My friend had good results with Fredd-ish protocol including 572 mg. magnesium, 887 mg. potassium. His swallowing problems disappeared. Also I know because it happened 3x - brain fog was relieved by enough magnesium. New naturopath only wants him on a max of 150 mg. magnesium. After we started this new protocol he got cramps in his arms, and swallowing problems returned. I have been upping Mag. to 266 mg. currently but thinking we should go higher. What is the Yaskoan thinking to low levels of magnesium? Is there a danger to too much? Rydra mentioned something about those with a NA___ processing defect should be careful with mag., but I can't find where she said that. He eats enormous amounts of food but is losing weight so I'm thinking he's not getting enough nutrients out of food so we should at least supplement to the RDA. Or maybe it's not just lower magnesium causing return of muscle issues? Other things that have been reduced are below - Fish oil Vitamin C Vitamin D (I think she thinks he has that defect where he can't absorb this, so maybe this one is OK although he seems depressed now) C0Q10 Any insights appreciated. He's taking 5 mg. MB12 and 10 mg. Adb12 and 800 mcg methylfolate, with some Bs, GABA, lithium orotate, antioxidants, and digestive and probiotics.
