68% of Americans are magnesium deficient
Study Title: "Dietary magnesium and C-reactive protein levels"
Number of Participants: 11,039 individuals of all ages
Length of Study: 17 Years
Type of Study: Cross-Sectional Nationally Representative Survey: National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 1999-2000 [NHANES]
Publication: Journal of the American College of Nutrition
Study Result: 68% consumed less than the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of magnesium, and 19% consumed less than 50% of the RDA

Current dietary guidelines recommend adequate intake of magnesium (310-420 mg daily) in order to maintain health and lower the risk of cardiovascular disease. Recent evidence from animal and clinical studies suggest that magnesium may be associated with inflammatory processes. The objective of this study was to determine whether dietary magnesium consumption is associated with C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of inflammation, in a nationally representative sample.

According to researchers:

“Among US adults, 68% consumed less than the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of magnesium, and 19% consumed less than 50% of the RDA.”
