A clinical trial on the consumption of bioavailable magnesium

was conducted at the prestigious St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney

The clinical trial showed that when bioavailable magnesium is consumed in water there is:

a significant increase in serum magnesium

significant stabilisation of serum parathyroid hormone

a significant correlation between magnesium and albumin

a significant correlation between magnesium and albumin

a subjective improvement in skin quality and energy

Serum Sodium and Potassium

There was a statistically significant increase in the mean level of serum sodium between the beginning of the clinical trial and the end of the clinical trial 12 weeks later (0.0153 mmol/L/day; p < 0.0001).  This significant increase in serum sodium occurred even though all waters consumed were devoid of sodium.  The increase in serum sodium raised sodium levels from slightly below normal to the normal range (though see the note at the end of this section).

 

There was a statistically significant increase in the mean level of serum potassium between the beginning of the clinical trial and the end of the clinical trial 12 weeks later (0.0015 mmol/L/day; p < 0.0028).  This significant increase in serum potassium occurred even though all waters consumed were devoid of potassium.  The mean level of serum potassium tended to increase more in those people consuming water with added magnesium compared to people consuming water without magnesium.  From two weeks to 12 weeks of water consumption the differences in serum potassium became statistically significant (p = 0.04).

 

When 6 to 8 glasses of water per day are consumed, kidney function achieves optimal cell hydration by increasing specific osmotic solute concentrations, such as sodium and potassium, in extracellular fluids (plasma, interstitial fluid). Hydration blunts the secretion of antidiuretic hormone (ADH).  The absence of ADH allows sodium and potassium to be reabsorbed from the kidney tubule system without the reabsorption of water from the collecting ducts (that is, results in water diuresis or ‘aquaresis’).

 

It is known that elevated extracellular potassium concentrations inhibit decreases in cell volume and prevent the activation of apoptotic processes (programmed cell death processes).  It is known also that elevated extracellular potassium concentrations produce relatively large changes in the cell resting membrane potential.  In excitable cells such as neuromuscular tissue (nerve, muscle, heart) elevated extracellular potassium increases membrane excitability because less of a depolarizing stimulus is required to generate an action potential.  This is of vital importance in the maintenance of cell and organ function in the elderly and in the prevention of cell loss in organs such as the brain.

 

 

Note

 

Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) has completed a scientific review on the relationship between sodium intake and blood pressure. FSANZ concluded that decreased sodium intake led to reduced blood pressure. This conclusion is supported also by an overwhelming amount of medical literature. Decreased sodium (salt) intake is important for health.

 

The above clinical trial result appears counter intuitive. That is, appropriate water consumption does not dilute certain blood constituents but increases them – particularly sodium.

 

Modern humans evolved from hunter-gatherers who did not have access to excess salt. Indeed, our ancestors existed on low salt intake and needed to reabsorb sodium from the kidneys in order to maintain an ideal level of sodium in the blood (140 to 145 milli equivalents per litre). Consuming water helped to reabsorb sodium and maintain essential blood constituents. It appears important, therefore, to limit excess salt intake if one wishes to experience the benefits of optimal hydration.
