General conclusions

Health risks come when we take too much magnesium. The dietary magnesium is not the main reason for any risks. Nevertheless doses of that mineral in supplements can promote adverse effects such as diarrhea and abdominal comprehension. Important here is kidney failure - when the kidney loses the ability to remove excess magnesium. That is a risk of magnesium toxicity. In that group we can add also hypermagnesemia caused by magnesium-containing laxatives and antacids. Nowadays medicine does many experiences with people and how the magnesium deficiency or magnesium over taken influence with them. That is necessary for the future of magnesium supplements and health way of life. Therefore, it is important for medical professionals to be aware of the use of any magnesium-containing laxatives or antacids. But the signs of excess magnesium can be similar to magnesium deficiency and include changes in mental status, nausea, appetite loss, muscle weakness, irregular heartbeat, difficulty breathing, diarrhea, and extremely low blood pressure.
