How can you treat a magnesium deficiency?
– You should elevate magnesium levels in the blood by working on the same points as in the prevention of magnesium deficiency. You can ask your doctor as he may recommend magnesium supplements to increase its levels. Magnesium supplements are available over the counter, and for most adults, the recommended daily allowance is 400 mg.
– Always ask your doctor before taking supplements, even if it is available over the counter. Magnesium supplements can cause toxicity and should be monitored closely.
– Magnesium supplements may cause stomach upset, nausea, and vomiting.
– It is better to increase magnesium levels by food intake because it will never cause magnesium toxicity, unlike supplements.
