The FDA says women need approximately 280 mgs per day and men 350 mg. However, if you are taking supplements, such as calcium, then you need to follow the ratio of 2:1, calcium to magnesium. ...And, according to Henry Lukaski of the Department of Agriculture's Human Nutrition Research Center in Grand Forks, N.D., the majority of adult male and female population do not eat the recommended allowance of this mineral, magnesium.
The research scientist tested his hypothesis on women, and this is what he found:
- On a low-magnesium diet, for a given amount of work performed:
- They consumed more oxygen.
- Their hearts beat nine beats per minute faster.
- On an enriched-magnesium diet, for the same given amount of work performed:
- They consumed less oxygen.
- Their hearts beat nine beats per minute slower.
Therefore, the conclusion can be drawn that when taking magnesium, for the same amount of work, one expends less energy and has to work less hard, which extropolates to less exhaustion for the same amount of work on a low-magnesium intake.
So, increase your intake to 3-5 servings per day of dark leafy green vegetables and cereals. But, if you are worried about getting too many calories and the resulting weight gain; or, you can't eat that much, then your best bet is to take a calcium supplement that is balanced with magnesium in a 2:1 ratio.
We also suggest you take coenzyme Q10 (CO-Q10), NADH (5-nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), L-carnitine, and alpha-lipoic-acid.
These substances support the nutritional and enzymatic output for energy from the mitochondria of the body. The mitochondria are the power plants of each individual human cell. Its job is to produce energy via and utilizing ATP--a high energy compound.
