Magnesium for asthma?

Asthma is a very common, yet chronic condition that affects approximately 10% of adults.  For those who suffer from asthma, it can have a negative impact on their quality of life.

New research suggests that one treatment option for those who suffer from asthma is magnesium.  Magnesium for asthma is an appealing option for many since it’s natural and safe.

Research also suggests that many patients with asthma are actually deficient in magnesium.

In terms of the most common supplementation study, most studies have specifically looked at the salt, magnesium citrate, large for absorption reasons.

Magnesium deficiency is also very common in hospitalized patients, diabetics, and those who absue alcohol.

In terms of side effects, no significant side effects were reported in a recent research study on supplementation with magnesium citrate in asthmatics.
