What to do about Magnesium supplements?


Nice opinion piece about taking Magnesium 2015


Whole article at link above.
Dr George Lundberg

"Foods with high magnesium content include dark leafy greens, especially kale, chard, and spinach; tree nuts and peanuts; seeds; oily fish; beans, lentils, legumes, and whole grains; avocado, yogurt, bananas, and dried fruit; dark chocolate; and molasses. Supplemental magnesium is available over the counter in many forms: citrate, amino acid chelate, chloride, glycinate, malate, taurate, carbonate, and others, which vary in absorption, concentration, and bioavailability.
Because you cannot just draw a blood sample and ask the lab to identify a deficiency,
I advise that if a patient has any of the symptoms I listed, you might best just try that old standby, "trial of therapy," and track what happens."
