Biohacking: Fix Magnesium Deficiency with Supplementation

Magnesium is one of the top two minerals that developed countries are most deficient in. Over 60% of the US population is not getting enough magnesium from their diet. It could be as simple as increasing the amount of spinach, chard, pumpkin seeds and almonds into your diet.

Individuals on a reduced carbohydrate diet, fasting or caloric restriction will quickly lose magnesium in the urine. There are a number of uncomfortable issues that arise from magnesium deficiency. Cramping in the thighs, calves and soles of the feet is common. Tingling and numbness in the hands and feet along with migraines and poor digestion all make supplementation start to look good.

Magnesium supplementation comes in many forms, but the goal is to get a pure source with high absorption at a reasonable price. Magnesium citrate has the highest absorption rate and is cost affordable, but the purity is off. Magnesium chelate is the next best option as it causes minimal gastral distress and has reasonable good absorption at a good price. I have been using Doctor’s Best (Mg Chelate) which comes in at $0.08 for 400mg which is the recommended daily dose.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
