Magnesium Requirements and Recommendations

The main dietary sources of Mg are cereals and chocolate, but it is widely distributed in most foods. Estimations of the daily requirements vary from 100 to 1000 mg71,72 and the daily intake in adults varies between 250 and 500 mg.73 In France, the recommended daily intake is 6 mg/kg/d, but some 18% of men and 23% of women have an intake lower than 4 mg/kg/d. However, such an apparently low value is still in agreement with the recommendation of the European Community, i.e., 3.4 mg/kg/d for adults.74 The recommendations of the National Research Council in the U.S. are 280-350 mg/d or ±5 mg/kg/d for young women and men.4
