Did you know that 2.5 to 15% of the US population has some form of magnesium deficiency? Low magnesium is caused by insufficient dietary intake as well as losses through the kidneys and digestive tract, sometimes as a result of prescription medications or alcoholism. Low magnesium can lead to metabolic syndrome, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Several over the counter magnesium supplements are available. Check with your doctor if you think you may be deficient.
