Continuing on the subject from last week, the effects of low magnesium in kids.
What’s worse, about a third of all youngsters are overweight. This has been associated with low magnesium; in turn, such deficiency has been linked to insulin resistance, a diabetes risk factor (Indian Pediatrics 2/12, Diabetes Care 5/05).
In fact, a number of health hazards have been tied to magnesium deficits. Kids in one study who consumed inadequate amounts of magnesium were nearly twice as likely to have elevated C-reactive protein, an inflammation marker linked to cardiovascular woes (Magnesium Research 3/07). Low magnesium has been linked to hypertension as well (Journal of Pediatrics 1/16).
Magnesium supplementation has shown itself useful. In one study magnesium and vitamin B6 was able to calm such signs of nervous system overstimulation as aggression and inattentiveness (Journal of American College of Nutrition 10/04). Nebulized magnesium has helped children with asthma attacks; one study recommended that hospitals administer it to all children in acute distress (Pediatric Respiratory Reviews 12/14).
Magnesium supplements formulated specifically for children help ensure they get enough of this vital mineral. Such supplements use child-friendly dosages and forms, such as magnesium aspartate, that are readily absorbable.
No one wants to see their kids feeling miserable. Magnesium may help keep them healthy.
