In recent years, attentionresearchers in various areas of clinical medicine drawn to the problem of deficiency of magnesium and its role in the formation of various pathological conditions and processes of the human organism. According to data published by Russian scientists, 30% of Russians earn less than 70% of the daily magnesium needs.
In this case magnesium is vitalelement, which is required for normal cells, muscles, organs and the nervous system. Its deficiency can occur in disorders of diet (diet) or an increase in demand in the macro elements:
- at elevated psychological and mental stress;
- under stress;
- the consumption of large amounts of fatty foods, fast food, alcohol, and coffee;
- during pregnancy;
- during periods of growth and development.
A special role magnesium plays in the maintenance of the nervoussystem. It is involved in the regulation of the transmission of nerve impulses, and its deficiency may cause increased cell excitability. That is why the magnesium deficiency decreases the body's ability to resist negative factors, and it becomes more difficult to cope with stress. Clinical manifestations of maladjustment associated with magnesium deficiency, the daily requirement is an average of 300-400 mg / day.
To make up for deficiency of magnesium is recommended to follow a special diet, rich in magnesium. Unfortunately, the daily diet can not always provide the necessary demand for this macronutrient.

For pregnant and lactating women need higher daily - 450 mg - commented clinical pharmacologist, MD, professor, deputy director for scientific work of the Russian Center for Trace elements of the UNESCO Institute, Professor, Department of Pharmacology and Clinical Pharmacology TMGI Gromova Olga Alexeeva. - This is an important trace element in the body does not produce, so the entire daily intake should come from food and drinking water. It is necessary to enrich your diet with algae, fish, legumes, cereals, dried fruits, bananas, spinach, arugula, broccoli, salad, fruit.

Many magnesium is also found in natural dark chocolate, and nuts, and chocolate - high-calorie foods, and their passion can lead to weight gain, so they are not recommended for daily consumption. Unfortunately, the daily diet can not always provide the necessary requirement for magnesium, and then come to the aid of magnesium-containing drugs, which help to make up the deficit. It is important that these preparations contain organic salts of magnesium, which are better absorbed. After consultation with the doctor advised to take drugs, which include a combination of magnesium and vitamin B6, which improves the absorption of trace elements from the gastrointestinal tract and its penetration into the cells of the body.
