What are the health benefits of magnesium

However, one should never rely on magnesium alone for chronic illnesses, even if there is a pronounced deficiency. Because chronic diseases usually have a whole package of causes, of which magnesium deficiency can only be one of many. It is therefore better to implement a holistic concept that consists of many measures (change in diet, exercise, optimization of the supply of vital substances, stress management, etc.), including of course taking individually dosed magnesium supplements.
