Science based information from 1000’s of participants that you can use for your own health

Over 45% of the US population consumes less than the average daily requirement of magnesium1, thus are very likely deficient. This widespread deficiency may be contributing to the rise in many health problems such as

  • musculoskeletal pain
  • atrial fibrillation
  • stroke
  • heart failure
  • preeclampsia
  • bone health
  • mental, emotional & behavioral disorders
  • diabetes

Some common questions about magnesium that will be addressed with participation in the Magnesium*PLUS Focus Project

  • how might magnesium be working for me?
  • what specific health outcomes are associated with this nutrient for me, for the total group?
  • how can I figure out how much to take? What’s the dose-response relationship for all? For me?
  • does it matter if I’m also taking vitamin D? Omega-3?
  • does it matter what compound of this nutrient I take? What time of day? How often?
  • what are the demonstrated health outcomes used to create this nutrient’s recommended range?

A very important piece of information an individual will receive for themselves when participating is to know their individual response to supplementation. Everyone experiences a unique response to supplementation or nutrient intake called the dose-response, which can be due to factors such as current health conditions, digestive health, co-nutrient status, medications, genetics and more. The vitamin D dose-response chart below illustrates the wide variation in response for individuals at a specific intake amount. For example, among those taking 5000 IU/day of vitamin D, resulting serum levels ranged from about 20 to 140 ng/ml. Similar variations are seen with omega-3 and magnesium intake, and other nutrients.

Measuring your nutrient status, adjusting intake as needed, and re-testing is the only way to tell if your nutrient intake is helping you achieve sufficient or desired nutrient status which is tied to particular health outcomes

We will analyze the collected data and publish scientific papers on key results, the first after meeting an enrollment target of 1000 participants. There will be preliminary analyses and interim newsletters available for all during the enrollment phase.
