2:48 Magnesium deficiency symptoms
3:31 Best sources of magnesium
5:26 How to increase magnesium levels

Today, I’m going to tell you how to reverse magnesium deficiency. It’s very difficult to test for magnesium deficiency. Around 60% of your magnesium is in your bones, 39% in your soft tissue, and only 1% in your blood. A blood test is not a reliable way to determine if you have low magnesium.

Magnesium deficiency can be caused by the following factors:
• Diet
• Gut inflammation
• Diabetes
• Insulin resistance
• Excessive sugar consumption
• Vitamin D without magnesium
• Medications (antibiotics, PPIs, antacids, diuretics)

Symptoms of magnesium deficiency can include:
• Tetany
• Tight muscles
• Insomnia (sleep problems)
• Anxiety
• Fatigue
• Nystagmus
• Migraines
• Kidney stones

You need magnesium to make ATP, the “energy currency” of the body. Magnesium deficiency can also lead to calcium buildup.

Here are some of the foods that have the most magnesium per 100 grams/3.5 ounces:
1. Sea kelp: 760 mg of magnesium
2. Almonds: 490 mg of magnesium
3. Nutritional yeast: 231 mg of magnesium
4. Pecans: 142 mg of magnesium
5. Leafy greens: 100 mg of magnesium
6. Dark chocolate: 165 mg of magnesium
7. Pumpkin seeds: 265 mg of magnesium
8. Meat and fish: 25 to 35 mg of magnesium

The RDA for magnesium is 300 to 420 mg, and the average person only consumes 215 mg. If you have magnesium deficiency, increase your intake of magnesium-rich foods and supplement with 800 mg of magnesium glycinate.

It can take up to a year to fix a chronic magnesium deficiency, but you might find that your low magnesium symptoms go away in a few weeks or months. After you’ve increased magnesium levels with supplements, you can maintain it with your diet.

Always ensure you consume at least 400 mg of magnesium daily.

  1. I just realized that I am Magnesum deficient about a month ago. I have been pounding a supplement since then, and my life has improved quite a bit already.

  2. I was treating MANY problems with the wrong solution. My problem was hormone depletion. Once I started estrogen and progesterone I slept like a log from the first night. There was no problem with my magnesium.

  3. So a lady told me that I’m too “militant” about the healthy way I eat. 😐 If that’s what she wants to call it, that’s alright with me, lol! All I’m saying is if she can’t resist the temptation of cookies and donuts, or stop herself from licking the peanut butter from her fingers when meal prepping while “intermittent fasting,” then wow… What else!? Food addicted people kind of remind me of men-eating leopards sometimes. Y’all stay strong out there, and have a wonderful day! 🙂

    • I am a sugar addict. Thanks for ur understanding. I battle every day to stop even thinking about sugar. I have had suicidal thoughts to give up.

    • @@Drbergdo you have a list of supplements with best forms, daily dosing, should not be taken with other supplements or how far apart they should be taken along with contradictions? All this gets so confusing and there’s so much conflicting information out there too. I know you have your own brand of supplements but many have other things added so it’s even more confusing and I’ve watched so many of your videos then can’t remember what I heard on which video.

  4. For so many years, I was trying to treat my magnesium deficiency and it turns out it was more of a potassium deficiency than anything. I’m so grateful for your videos. I needed both, but I needed potassium and more.

    After consuming it, I can literally feel my body calming down, and my heart rate slowing.

    • Can you share how you up your potassium, cos I’m suffering from it and there are many conflicting information

    • @@silvamaney8897 bananas and boiled potatoes are best for potassium… 5-6 banana and 2 potatoes should provide daily requirement..

    • @@vishalthelkar7668 easy. When I was only taking magnesium, it was doing nothing but when I added potassium, that’s when I started noticing my sleep getting better and my nervous system calming down.

      Electrolytes need balancing. It’s possible to take too much of one and not enough of the other and that’s what I was doing.

  5. 🙏 doc 👍👌👏👏

    Several vitamins and minerals play a role in promoting better sleep quality. Here are some key ones:

    1. **Magnesium:** Magnesium is known to help relax the muscles and calm the nervous system, which can aid in promoting better sleep. Foods rich in magnesium include nuts, seeds, leafy green vegetables, and whole grains. You can also consider taking a magnesium supplement, but it’s best to consult with a healthcare provider first.

    2. **Vitamin D:** Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to sleep disorders. Getting adequate sunlight exposure and consuming foods rich in vitamin D, such as fatty fish, fortified dairy products, and eggs, can help regulate your sleep-wake cycle.

    3. **Melatonin:** While not a vitamin or mineral, melatonin is a hormone that regulates sleep-wake cycles. It can be taken as a supplement to help improve sleep quality, particularly for those experiencing jet lag or shift work-related sleep issues.

    4. **B vitamins:** B vitamins, especially B6 and B12, play a role in the production of neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine, which are important for regulating sleep and mood. Foods rich in B vitamins include poultry, fish, whole grains, and leafy green vegetables.

    5. **Calcium:** Calcium is essential for the production of melatonin, which helps regulate the sleep-wake cycle. Foods high in calcium include dairy products, leafy greens, and fortified plant-based milk alternatives.

    6. **Iron:** Iron deficiency can cause restless leg syndrome, a condition that can disrupt sleep. Consuming iron-rich foods like red meat, poultry, beans, lentils, and spinach can help improve sleep quality.

    7. **Potassium:** Potassium is important for muscle relaxation and can help promote better sleep. Foods rich in potassium include bananas, sweet potatoes, avocados, and spinach.

    It’s important to note that while these vitamins and minerals can support better sleep, they are not a cure-all for sleep disorders. If you are experiencing chronic sleep issues, it’s best to consult with a healthcare provider to determine the underlying cause and receive appropriate treatment.

  6. I gave up coffee last October. I noticed now that if I don’t take magnesium daily I’m not sore the next day after a hard days work.

  7. Maybe do a short vid some time, to let people know just how much mag % wise is in supplemental mag food supps. A 400 mg mag capsule does not have 400 mg of mag in it, and it is so easy to forget about that. Thanks for the vids.

  8. Just ordered your D3 K2 and Mag Glycinate, yesterday! I know i don’t eat right at almost 80, with no kids at home to cook good meals for. 😞
    I have learned so much from you, Dr Berg! Thank you!!!!

    • Mine too…until I learned that chocolate and almonds are high in oxalic acid..Sadly from Dr. Berg 😢

    • @@RC-eb5hq I drink lemon water with Chia seeds throughout the day. It helps me preventing oxalate crystals. I had that problem couple years ago before I started.💜🙏

    • ​@@MagdaRobinson-cv9uuI think walnuts also have almost same amount of magnesium but much less oxalate

  9. Every day my health is headed in a better direction because of the information on this channel. I can’t thank you enough! There’s so much evil happening in our world Dr. Berg is definitely a shining light that we all need so we can stay as healthy as possible to combat the bad stuff.

  10. I’ve recently just ordered your whole kit. I’ve been taking them as well as my significant other. It has made dramatic change. I’m 24 years old and use to be a very active athlete. Even at that time I wasn’t getting the right nutrients. That was 7 years ago. Since then I went from a body weight/six pack 175. To 260 lbs. 6 months ago I changed my diet and was fasting without any nutrients or supplements just changed my diet. I’m down to 195 pounds. I eat in the morning which consist of greek yogurt, oats, honey, flax, chai, one strawberry, 10 blueberries, 4 raspberries, 4 blackberries. Then I take all the supplements in that whole kit after my breakfast. (8 am). Then I’m fasting again until 7 or 8 pm and eat my last meal with Whole Foods no processed foods. I don’t even eat sugar anymore.

  11. These 12M subscriber is the luckiest on this planet for knowing the existence of Dr Berg…we couldn’t be more grateful to u! ❤

  12. Thank you Dr Berg for sharing another useful video. May God blessed you and your family!

  13. Had no idea I’ve had all these symptoms for yrs. Now my health is really failing. Makes perfect sense when mentioning the soil issues.
    Wish I’d had known. Hopefully I can get a grip. Turn things around. My “gut health” was treated with a product taken off the market for causing cancer and two tests have come back positive. I refused the colonoscopy recently. I’m going to really try this and stop other things. Thankfully I’ve just quit craving soda after fasting from it and am back to loving water (carbon filtered).. and exercise and chiropractor.. good luck to everyone.

  14. Do you remember the cassette tapes many years ago: “Dead Doctors Dont Lie” It was ahead of it’s time.

  15. I’m a massage therapist and I recommend it to all of my clients. I usually send them your videos on magnesium glycinate.

  16. THANK YOU!
    One year ago I was 182 kg (400 pounds)
    I am 27 now and I have hypothyroidism since I was 16
    I have been doing diets going up and down 5-10 kgs since
    Always I ended up feeling too tired and gained the weight back
    Until I learned about this channel I dedicated months to listen to all your advice than started applying it in a slow but stable manner
    I lost 32 kgs (70 pounds)
    I feel energized and healthy
    I lost weight but gained muscles
    I am on a healthy keto diet + OMAD
    Can you please do a video about hypothyroidism and the best tips for it
    Have a nice evening

  17. 3 years of muscle twitching /spams / tension / cramping , hot flashes , acid reflux ,weird sensations like buzzing sensation going through my body , trouble sleeping , cold hands and feet , fatigue . 3 neurologist , GP , reumotologist , over 3 years and no test found anything. My GP did find my vitamin d was low so I supplemented with 5,000 iu for over 2 years with no change . I went to a private Doc a few months ago and found out through a urine analysis and rbc magnesium test my levels were low . Started supplementing and getting weekly IV treatments and every symptoms except for the muscle tension and cramping have subsided so far in about +3 months . This all started from corticosteroid injections 3 years ago which I found out depletes magnesium storages . Also vitamin D supplements depletes magnesium storages .Good luck to anyone going through this.
