Magnesium Supplementation and Osteoporosis


Magnesium Supplementation and Osteoporosis

J E Sojka et al. Nutr Rev. .


Among other things, magnesium regulates active calcium transport. As a result, there has been a growing interest in the role of magnesium (Mg) in bone metabolism. A group of menopausal women were given magnesium hydroxide to assess the effects of magnesium on bone density. At the end of the 2-year study, magnesium therapy appears to have prevented fractures and resulted in a significant increase in bone density.
