Who needs magnesium-chloride ?
Everybody, unless you live on Lake Balaton in Hungary or in the Dolomites, eats mainly vegetables grown in magnesium-rich soils. Virtually all other soils are deficient in magnesium due to decades of fertilization and intensive farming, which of course also affects the vegetables grown there.
How much magnesium-chloride should I take?
The daily requirement of an adult is approx. 800 milligrams. It would take meticulous menu planning to even come close to this figure. Adults should take at least 300 milligrams per day; the requirement is higher for people aged 50 and over and pregnant women need up to 1500 milligrams per day. Dissolved in a liter of fresh, healthy water, 300 milligrams is enough for about 50 doses of magnesium-chloride.
Why in the form of chloride in particular?
There is a whole range of magnesium compounds.Some of them can hardly be utilized by the body. If, for example, you take the usable magnesium citrate, you would have to take 6 tablets a day at a dose of 600 milligrams (equivalent to two cups of magnesium chloride), which would be much more expensive on the one hand, and on the other hand would put a strain on the digestive organs due to the citric acid.
Combined preparations also contain calcium, which is fatal.
The human body contains around 25 grams of magnesium, 30% of which is stored in the muscles and 60% in the bones. The calcium content, on the other hand, is much higher. This leads us to assume that we should consume more calcium than magnesium. This is the big mistake of many nutrition experts, because they do not take into account that these two elements are antagonists.
Too much soluble calcium in the diet prevents the body from absorbing magnesium. The ingested calcium is then deposited in places where it does not belong because it cannot be used: In the brain; in the lungs; in the kidneys as kidney stones; in the arteries (arteriosclerosis); as bone and cartilage overgrowth (so-called over-legs); in muscle tissue, where it causes pain (e.g. soft tissue rheumatism). In extreme cases, it leads to osteoporosis, even though the calcium intake was well-intentioned.
These deposits are gradually removed by taking 300-600 mg of magnesium-chloride per day in addition to whole foods. Once again, for your information: Wholefood nutrition means:
Wholemeal products such as raw rice, brown millet, buckwheat, amaranth, wholemeal pasta, wholemeal bread, fish, organic eggs, organic fruit, organic vegetables ... if possible from the region ... fresh and natural ;-)
