#870: MM- Vitamin D Supplements without Magnesium, May be a Moot Point
Vitamin D deficiency is a major health concern in our country, but checking only your vitamin D level may be a moot point. This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. A review published in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association may unveil the reason 50% of our population is low in Vitamin D. It turns out that vitamin D, without adequate magnesium may not do you any good. Doctors are regularly checking vitamin D and prescribing supplementation, but doing so without also checking magnesium could be a mistake. The recommended daily allowance for magnesium is 420 mg for males and 320 mg for females. Unfortunately, the average daily consumption through diet in the US contains only about half of that. Lesson – Vitamin D and Magnesium supplements should be prescribed together as well as tested together.
