Magnesium is crucial to the body's function as it helps keep blood pressure normal, bones strong and the heart rhythm steady. Magnesium is also an important electrolyte needed for proper muscle, nerve, and enzyme function. It also helps the body use energy and is needed to move other electrolytes (potassium and sodium) into and out of cells.

People with the following conditions should take magnesium supplements: have kidney disease, Crohn's disease or other conditions that affect digestion, parathyroid problems, take antibiotics or drugs for diabetes and cancer, seniors, abuse alcohol. People with sleep disorders might benefit from using Magnesium supplements as it helps activate neurotransmitters that are responsible for calming the body and the mind.


Magnesium supplements may not be safe for people who take diuretics, heart medicines, or antibiotics. Check with your doctor if you are taking any of these medications before taking magnesium. People with diabetes, intestinal disease, heart disease or kidney disease should not take magnesium before speaking with their doctor.
