Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for January 07, 2007

From a Magesium Research Group I get a list of factors that contribute to Magnesium loss.

Things that Help the Body Hold onto Magnesium


  1. Diet with protien moderate amts-(but too high of a diet of protien will increase wasting )of mag.
  2. Boron 3 mg/daily
  3. Calcium +vit D every 4 hours 500mg-not to exceed 3000mg in 24 hours, may take lower dose of 2000 mg
  4. Copper 1 mg/daily
  5. Taurine 1000 mg with meals, no more than 3000 mg a day, this transports magnesium and potassium into Red Blood Cells.
  6. Vitamin B6 50mg/ TID –needs to be balnced with B2 ,twice as much B2 to B6-also need the complete B-complex taken at same time for absorbtion.
  7. Vitamin E 200iu every 4 hours not to exceed 1000iu in 24 hours, blocks catecholamines and corticosteroids, which cause wasting of both magnesium and potassium.
  8. Zinc 50mg/daily-( any thing over 150mg waste mag)
  9. A spectrum of antioxidants to replenish magnesium stores more easily.

With this new information, I reorganize my vitamins and minerals for tomorrow. I’ll also add a higher dose of Niacin along with and equal dose of niacinamide.

One of the symptoms for a zinc deficiency is white spots on finger nails and I don’t have that. My vitamin E is fine and B6 is normal. So that leaves Copper and Calcium as possible suspects.
