Breathe Deeply With Magnesium

31 October 2012 - Posted by Ashley under , ,

How often is it that someone afflicted with asthma walks into their doctor and is told to supplement with magnesium? On an educated guess, I’d say not all too often. Just in my circle of friends and acquaintances, there are several people utilizing either steroid or albuterol medications for their asthma and who, until I mentioned something, had never heard word one of how magnesium may benefit their conditions.

This is both alarming as well as absurd amongst a population that is growing increasingly asthmatic. In 2009, statistics showed that 1 out of every 12 people in the U.S. had asthma, as opposed to 1 out of every 14 in 2001. That is an over 1% rise of asthma cases across our population – that’s a 5 million person spike in 8 years! That’s huge!

Despite this large chunk of our population fighting to breath, our medical system seems to be ignoring an essential nutrient that could potentially save lives if not provide for indescribably better quality of life for over 25 million people in the U.S. alone.

How does magnesium benefit respiratory ailments like asthma?

Magnesium is necessary for proper muscle function. As I’ve mentioned in past articles, magnesium and calcium are complimentary nutrients and maintain a careful balance within our muscles – calcium being responsible  for contraction while magnesium is required for the release. Too much calcium without magnesium results in spasms, twitching, irregular heartbeat, knots, “charlie horses”, tics, jaw clenching, and a host of other things including… the constriction of airways as bronchial smooth muscle cells contract1 .

Also included in magnesium’s arsenal for battling respiratory issues is its ability to regulate and suppress histamine production. A large percentage of asthma attacks are triggered by allergens like dust, pollen, pet dander, and perfumes – innocuous substances that we come into contact with on a daily basis. The release of antibodies as our immune system attempts to “protect” us from these perceived invaders often affects the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs – the latter of which obviously is what ultimately leads to the attack.

Of course, anyone with asthma will tell you that there are oodles of other triggers beyond airborn allergens, such as sulfites in wine and foods, stress, cold & flu, or even something that makes you cough deeply. Many of these have two aspects in common in that they lead to immune response and/or inflammation that adversely effects sensitive airways. Magnesium just happens to be adept at tackling both of those issues!

How is magnesium applied for asthma relief?

Interestingly enough, although mainstream general practitioners seem to be collectively unaware of magnesium’s role in healthy respiratory function, many emergency care facilities have begun to implement it in the treatment of acute asthma attacks. Intravenous and nebulized forms of magnesium have seen increased usage in recent years in both hospitals and research studies – often succeeding where drug treatments alone have failed.

Outside of emergency medicine, the average consumer (or patient, in this case) can take advantage of less immediate magnesium intervention by taking the oral supplement route. The downfall of this path is that many of these supplements are comprised of poorly absorbed compounds and additives – add to that the need for optimal gut health in order for nutrient breakdown and absorption to occur, and you have a recipe for failure.

Cut to the shot of Person A throwing their bottle of magnesium oxide pills against the wall in frustration (“Curse you! You don’t work! Argh!”)… thereby triggering a stress-induced asthmatic episode. *wheeze* *cough* It’s a vicious cycle, really.

That’s a bit dramatic, I suppose, but that’s not to say that there isn’t an underlying truth to it. If you do choose to opt for oral magnesium, there are numerous compounds from which to choose – some of which are much better absorbed than others. In this case, you do indeed get what you pay for and the amino acid chelates of magnesium, although usually more expensive, are often much better assimilated by the body.

The other choice  is, of course, (I know you saw this coming) …topical magnesium. Compared to oral supplements, topical is as close as you can get to intravenous magnesium without actually puncturing any skin, and far more efficient at delivering magnesium ions directly into your cells. By choosing the topical route, you are skipping over those hurdles that oral magnesium represents, and are even able to apply it directly to areas that you feel may be specifically lacking in magnesium. For example: Want to work on getting magnesium directly to your respiratory system? Rub magnesium oil directly onto your chest, back and throat!

Will I be able to stop using my albuterol inhaler or steroid treatment?

It hurts me to say this, but no.

Let me clarify that a bit before you get too deflated. Magnesium has the ability to decrease frequency and severity of asthmatic episodes, but that doesn’t mean that it can eradicate them entirely for everyone. The qualifier there is “for everyone” since there have been cases of mild asthma sufferers no longer needing any pharmaceutical intervention after they began magnesium supplementation. The role of albuterol inhalers, for the most part, is “emergency medicine” – they act to provide immediately relief when an attack comes on and dilates airways within minutes.

As I mentioned above, both oral and topical magnesium supplements are for maintaining long term quality of life and providing respiratory support. If you are seeking magnesium for acute asthma treatment, intravenous and nebulized forms are the only forms suitable for that purpose.

The steroid treatments for asthma are another topic entirely. Many individuals* that have been on long term steroid asthma treatments (such as Advair) have seen an increase in dependency, lung sensitivity, and susceptibility to respiratory infection, as well as a worsening of original asthma symptoms upon cessation of the drug. Although supplementation with magnesium will most likely be beneficial for those on steroid inhalers, any sort of weaning off of these drugs needs to be conducted with your doctors knowledge and supervision.

*This information is from personal experience, health boards, drug forums, blogs, and individuals. There is little if any acknowledgement by medical professionals that these issues stem from this drug class and not some other extraneous source.

    Is it safe to use in my portable nebuliser and if so, in what proportion?  I would like to thank you for your blogs, they have been an education.

  • Lisanparagon

    I have asthma and try not to use my inhaler. I use to use Adair and now use duclera. I don’t
    use it very often. I would be very intrested in learning more about magnesium and how I can
    use it to help me with my asthma.

  • Ashley

    Hello,

    Although the use of Dulera may prevent you from seeing the full benefits of magnesium use, since you mentioned not using it very often, that probably wouldn’t apply to you necessarily.

    If you try not to use your inhaler and do not use the steroid that often, how did you go about decreasing your need for those? Do you currently take a magnesium supplement or something else for lung health? Or are you simply avoiding triggers perhaps?

  • Ashley

    Hi Jille,

    I would say that in general, it is safe to use an “approved magnesium solution” in your portable nebulizer. I myself have a handheld Omron that I use with mine, I just make certain to rinse it thoroughly so that none of the metal parts erode.

    However, we do not recommend the use of our topical magnesium for this purpose. The mention of magnesium nebulization in this article is referring to treatments in professional medical settings and not any form of DIY home solution. There are doctors such as Dr. Mark Sircus who can perhaps inform you further if you wish to try your hand at it, but we are unable to provide that type of information, unfortunately. We, as a company, have limitations as to what kind of recommendations we can provide our customers, but I can say that there is quite a bit of information on the web from knowledgeable natural health practitioners if you plan on going this route.
    But, as always, I must end with saying that you should consult with your physician.

  • Pam

    my husband uses symbicort & combivent prn will the use of magnesium oil
    help control his allergies, thereby helping his asthma?

  • Ashley

    Hi Pam,

    Magnesium naturally helps decrease inflammation and block histamine response. The issue with taking things like Symbicort is that corticosteroids have been shown to actually increase excretion of magnesium… which is a bit of a Catch-22 since magnesium is an extremely important nutrient – especially with those prone to allergies and asthma. Prolonged usage of corticosteroids also increases dependence upon them, as they lower the immune system and confuse your body’s natural anti-inflammatory responses.
    For instance, many years ago I was given Advair for my nocturnal asthma that was hindering sleep and I immediately noticed a rise in respiratory infections coupled with an increased need for the drug. I made a personal decision to stop (which, I want to be clear, is not a recommendation), and once I was off of the Advair, my once periodic asthma/allergie issues seemed to multiply ten-fold.

    Luckily for me, I was able to slowly repair that damage and I now take different measures to prevent these inflammatory responses – one of which is making certain that I have sufficient amounts of magnesium.

    As for the Combivent – that one has its own issues as one of the active drugs is an acetylcholine receptor blocker. Ironically, magnesium is a natural acetylcholine blocker… whereas calcium is its counterpart and relieves this blocking action. The albuterol part of the cocktail also plays a push/pull role with calcium channels (and adrenaline). Unfortunately, both of these drugs have shown increased loss of magnesium (& other minerals) as well. To counteract the loss resulting from these medications, one would most likely require a higher than average dosage and more dietary vigilance.

    But yes, in short, use of the magnesium oil (& perhaps an oral supplement as well) should help support a healthy respiratory system and help decrease histamine response. It may also help boost the efficacity of the prescriptions as it counters the resulting loss of magnesium they are causing and carries out its natural role.

    Apologies for the long-winded response. Please let me know if there is anything else that I can assist with.

    * As with any supplement, it is always recommended that your physician be consulted.

  • Joanne

    I had mild asthma symptoms for years and used both prescription and non- prescription drugs like Bronkaid. I started taking magnesium oxide, about 750 mg a day and am completely off all medications.

  • Ashley

    It’s so good to hear that, Joanne. Magnesium really is a necessary nutrient for those with inflammatory conditions such as asthma and allergies. It makes all the difference in the world.

  • Justme

    I have used magnesium drops sublingually for asthma attacks for over 15 years and I have NEVER had to use an emergency inhaler (although I keep on on hand) since I started using the magnesium drops.

  • Branna

    My son is three and has been having severe asthma attacks that require albuterol and a steroid (usually prednisolone) for several days. This has been occurring about once/3-4 weeks for the past two years. For the last several months he’s also been on Qvar, which doesn’t seem to be helping very much, but perhaps a little. I have started giving him magnesium citrate orally. I’m concerned that he’s become dependent on the drugs and I’m trying to find an alternative way. I’m wondering how the drugs he’s taken may be interfering with his magnesium/calcium levels and I’m interested in the magnesium rub you mention, as I’ve never heard of that before. Is this available for little kids?

  • Anonymous

    Hi Branna, Magnesium oil is simplicity itself to make. Take mag.chloride flakes and water, preferably spring or distilled in ratio 1:1 and mix. There are lots of sites on net, some say boil but I find the flakes dissolve easily in the cold water. Since I have no bath, only a shower, I use this daily on hands and lower arms, feet and ankles, wherever the blood runs closest to the skin. It can be drying to the skin and on one site I learned it can be combined with coconut oil or shea butter but I just use diluted neem oil after applying. Hope this helps. Incidently, Mark Sircus’ blogs are an invaluable source of information.

  • Dianne Hansen

    What about magnesium chloride nebulized for cystic fibrosis?

    Magnesium oxide is actually just as readily absorbed by the body as magnesium citrate: http://doctormurray.com/magnesium-oxide-shown-to-be-well-absorbed/

  • Julian Markov

    I was diagnosed with a bronchial asthma after a trip to Italy; I have had a cough for a 6 years now and it has been getting worse and worse. I am expecting to drop dead because I have a very limited diet and no medication helps at all. I had to travel around the world to find where i feel best. I moved to Hawaii and I feel much better here than anywhere else. I am trying the magnesium supplement and I noticed I started coughing a lot from it, right after I take it. Today I used it again and raised a fever of 100.8. I have no idea what is happening, so if anyone has any knowledge and is willing to help, let me know.

  • Rooaik

    how can I wane myself from the use of seritide to treat asthma ? Is it safe combine the use of seritide and magnesium?

  • http://queenbeetv.com Becca Bankston

    From what I have read in Dr. Carolyn Dean’s “The Magnesium Miracle book, that is not true. Magnesium citrate is much better absorbed than Magnesium oxide. In a study that you can find on Pub Med, it says that Magnesium oxide is only 4% bioavailable. The best absorbed form of magnesium is magnesium chloride (which is available in topical form as Magnesium oil) or in oral form (Trace Minerals Research “Mega Mag” ionic liquid magnesium chloride.)

  • chrysostomos

    No.

    In this double-blind study, researchers investigated the impact of supplemental oral Mg citrate versus Mg oxide on intracellular magnesium levels ([Mg2+]i) in healthy subjects. Healthy volunteers received either magnesium oxide tablets (520 mg/day of elemental magnesium) or magnesium citrate tablets (295.8 mg/day of elemental magnesium) for one month (phase 1), followed by a four-week wash-out period, and then crossover treatment for one month (phase 2). Using new analytical techniques (x-ray dispersion analysis) results showed Mg oxide produced a [Mg2+]i level of 36.3 mEq/L vs. 35.4 mEq/L for Mg citrate and reduced total and LDL cholesterol more significantly as well. Both forms also reduced platelet aggregation

    Since the dosage of magnesium was also greater in the Mg oxide group, what these results indicate is that MG oxide as suitable of a form of magnesium as Mg citrate when given at larger dosage levels. Approximately 500 mg of Mg oxide may be equal to 350 mg Mg citrate.

    https://doctormurray.com/magnesium-oxide-shown-to-be-well-absorbed/

  • http://queenbeetv.com Becca Bankston

    You wrote ” Approximately 500 mg of Mg oxide may be equal to 350 mg Mg citrate.”

    My point exactly. Mag oxide is not as bioavailable as mag citrate. That is why 150 mg more of mag oxide has to be taken to be equal with mag citrate. (Anyone reading this should also know. Don’t take magnesium aspartate, as mag aspartate is well absorbed, but aspartate is a neurototoxin. (See Dr. Russell Blaylock’s book “Excitotoxins: The Taste that Kills”

    It is also important to note that mag chloride is the best absorbed because people who are deficient in magnesium from a genetic reason, also have problems properly absorbing vitamins and minerals.

    In this light, it is important for everyone to take the best absorbed magnesium available. In addition to having Type 1 diabetes and fibromyalgia, I have a double CBS mutation and this all makes me very magnesium deficient, so I use both Ancient Minerals topical magnesium oil and I take orally Trace Minerals Research “Mega Mag” ionic liquid magnesium chloride. I have to avoid Epsom Salts because they are magnesium sulfate, and with my CBS mutation, my body cannot process sulfur chemicals of any kind (sulfur, sulfite, sulfate), so instead I put the Ancient Minerals magnesium chloride oil in my bath or just rub it on.

    I would never take mag oxide, as it is a waste of money and I did take Solgar magnesium citrate for a while, but I got much better results (eg, my hair finally started growing back) by using both the Ancient Minerals magnesium oil on my skin and taking the Trace Minerals Research “Mega Mag” ionic liquid magnesium chloride drops w/ a little OJ.

    Read Dr. Carolyn Dean’s book “The Magnesium Miracle”. In it there is a whole chapter on allergies and asthma. Magnesium helps ameliorate the symptoms of so many things.

    You can also watch Dr. Carolyn Dean on youtube.

  • http://queenbeetv.com Becca Bankston

    Thank you for your information. This is very good to know.

  • chrysostomos

    They said the same thing about glutamate, I don’t think the tests are conclusive. Are you selling MgCl or something? You seem to be a salesman thus everything you copy and pasted is highly suspect and to be taken with a grain of non Trace Minerals Research salt.

    I wrote originally that MgO is just as absorbed by the body than the slightly more expensive citrate salt. I am not selling anything however, just giving information. I don’t trust salesmen, peddle your poison elsewhere, thanks.

  • http://queenbeetv.com Becca Bankston

    Just start using a well absorbed magnesium chloride like Trace Minerals Research Mega Mag liquid ionic magnesium chloride. Start with about 1 dropperfull (100mg) in a little juice in a shot glass daily.
    Then gradually build up to 2 dropperfulls in Am and 2 dropperfulls in pm, which makes up the USRDA of 400mg/day.

    It is also good to use the Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil on your body. I have tried a few brands of Magnesium Oil, but I have found the Ancient Minerals brand to work the best for some reason. Some others are cheaper, but they don’t work as well. Ancient Minerals brand seems to be more concentrated.

  • http://queenbeetv.com Becca Bankston

    Give him magnesium chloride since it is the best absorbed and he might probably have an absorption problem since he has the other problems. I know I do.

    Also, it would be very good to get his and the whole families genes mapped so you can see if there are any mutations that he might have that are affecting his immune system.

    Some foods that are healthy for most people, are not healthy for people with different mutations. EG, with my double CBS mutation, I have to avoid fish and fish is supposed to be healthy for most people. I also have to avoid onions and garlic and legumes and soy and broccoli, kale and cauliflower. (23andme is $199 for a full gene mapping; but worth it to find out what might be the root cause of any medical problems)

    I never got hives from these foods and it actually just affected my breathing, so I didn’t notice since I was used to not breathing well my whole life. I was taking allergy shots and occasionally had to use an inhaler (My great gramma died of an asthma attack when my gramma was six). At any rate, after six months of taking magnesium, and stopping all my allergy shots, my allergies went away and I can now breathe through my nose and I was always a mouth breather.

    Magnesium helps with so much. Everyone, not just asthmatics should use it. Read Dr. Carolyn Dean’s book “The Magnesium Miracle”. She has a whole chapter on Allergies and Asthma. I use Trace Minerals Research “Mega Mag” ionic magnesium chloride. (Start with 1 dropperfull with a little juice, cause it tastes bad) 1 dropperfull = 100mg which is 1/4 of the USRDA of 400mg/ day.

  • http://queenbeetv.com Becca Bankston

    I am not a salesman. And if you think Trace Minerals Research “Mega Mag” is poison, you are a simpleton. Look it up, it is just pure magnesium chloride, just like Ancient Minerals topical magnesium oil.

    It seems that you are just angry because I disagreed with you and I was correct. Mag Oxide is not as well absorbed as Mag Citrate. If it was, you would be able to take the same amounts of both with the same effect. And you yourself wrote that you have to take more Magnesium Oxide to equal the same amount as magnesium citrate, so that means that it is not as well absorbed as Magnesium Citrate.

    And now you try to defend yourself with incorrect rhetoric saying I am trying to peddle poison (aka Magnesium chloride)

    In what universe is magnesium chloride considered poison? This website that we are on is the Ancient Minerals website and that is what they sell …. Magnesium chloride oil, so you are calling their product poison.

    Are you not aware of that fact? Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil is pure Magnesium Chloride.

    And Glutamate is a neurotoxin. For everyone, but especially for people with double CBS mutations like myself.

    And yes, the tests are conclusive; at least the ones I have read in PUBMED.

    And mag citrate might be more expensive, from a first look, but if you have to take more mag oxide to get the same rate of absorption, you have to take that into consideration as that will increase cost of the mag oxide.

    I just did a search, and an avg. price of mag oxide tablets is $7.70 for 100 500mg tablets. Per PUBMED, mag oxide is only 4% bioavailable, so a 500mg table only contains 20mg of bioavailable magnesium.

    so you are basically getting 100 tablets of 20mg magnesium (4% of 500mg) so that is like getting 20 tablets of 100mg magnesium.

    And if a person must take USRDA of 400mg per day, they would need to take 4 of those 100mg tablets per day, and so 20 tablets of that 100mg magnesium will last for 5 days.

    Not even one week. So 5 days into a 30 day month, there is 6 of those, and 6 x $7.70 and you get $46.20 and to get the same amount of bioavailable magnesium from a bottle of Trace Minerals Research “Mega Mag”, it would cost you $13. So which magnesium is the cheapest? the $46.20 of the substandard magnesium oxide, or the $13 of Trace Minerals Mega Mag liquid magnesium chloride?

    Now which Magnesium is the cheapest in terms of bioavailability and actual milligrams able to be ingested? Of course its the “Mega Mag” by a long shot.

    And if you did try to take the 20 tablets a day of the “500”mg (but actually 20mg absorbable) magnesium oxide to be able to absorb the 400mg recommended by the USRDA, it would make you sick, because of all the non absorbable oxide in it.

    Hands down, Trace Minerals Research “Mega Mag” is the best deal for your dollar, and your health.

    I am not a salesperson. I am a person with 40% of my genes mutated and 10% double mutations who has almost died because of them. Magnesium saved my life and Trace Minerals Research “Mega Mag” is the best absorbed magnesium for the best price.

    I am a person who has used all the different types of magnesium you are talking about. I first started out using magnesium oxide. And then I found out about magnesium citrate and I used that for a while and it worked much better than magnesium oxide, which I then found out from a study on pub med that it is only 4% bioavailable as determined by measurements of kidney levels in the subjects.

    At any rate, mag citrate worked better than mag oxide for me and then mag chloride worked even better. I had lost a lot of my hair and when I finally switched to mag chloride (only because I had run out of the citrate) both I and my friend realized that the mag chloride worked much much better.

    He was dealing with really bad anxiety while taking the mag citrate and it didn’t help with it (his body can’t absorb nutrients very well and he couldn’t absorb the mag citrate). When he started taking the liquid mag chloride, he was able to go down from 5 valiums a day to 1 valium a day and then even get off of that.

    When I started taking the mag chloride, I noticed my breathing got so much better and my hair finally started growing back in again. My friend and I have so many mutations that we don’t absorb our nutrients very well. In fact we can’t even take B complex because we can’t absorb it, so we have to avoid things that deplete our b complex and try as best we can to get it from foods.

    So no, I am not a salesman, just a poor schlub with too many damn genetic mutations. So I have one benefit from the mutations, and that is, I know what I am talking about when it comes to this stuff because not only am I a study reader, I am an actual sick person and actual user and I can comment well based on my own personal experience. Mag Oxide is a waste of money and since it is not very bioavailable, it also has more of a diuretic affect.

    I wonder what your agenda is? My agenda is to help poor schlubs like myself who are suffering and the medical community has no knowledge of magnesium’s vast benefits.

    I came to this site tonight because a friend’s 10 year old nephew is in the hospital from an asthma attack, and this BS does not need to happen when people can supplement with magnesium.

    It seems you must work for a company that sells mag oxide, otherwise, why would you care which magnesium was best? If you were a true user like myself, you wouldn’t be so interested in arguing with me.

    I have advised many people to try magnesium and everyone has benefitted.

    I like Solgar Magnesium Citrate and it is more convenient to use than Trace Minerals Research “Mega Mag”, but I have to admit, from personal experience that the mega mag works better and even Dr. Carolyn Dean who wrote the Magnesium Miracle says that Magnesium chloride is the best absorbed form.

    You might be posting because you are jealous that I know so much, but I only know so much because I have been very ill. I am like a person who becomes a good mechanic because they are stuck with a junker car. They have to fix it all the time, so they learn well and know what they are talking about.

    I am sure your health is better than mine, and I would rather not know about this stuff. I would rather that my body worked well like most people and I could be concerned about other things, rather than how to keep myself from dying.

    So be happy for your health and thus your need to rely on reading studies for your info. And don’t begrudge me my good knowledge gained from actual usage of supplements on a sick body.

    At any rate, everyone is different and should try whatever they think they need to try. My comments are just my experiences and recommendations based on those experiences. It is not a contest between you and I.

    All posting here should be done for the benefit and further knowledge of anyone dealing with any type of health issue. And it is both my experience and study findings that conclude that magnesium oxide is not very well absorbed, so it is a waste of money. You have to take more of it because of that and that costs more money than a supplement that is better absorbed.

    Most people I advise are very financially strapped due to their illnesses which run throughout generations in their families and so it would be disrespectful of me to advise them to take things that are not the best quality and best absorbed and are not the best value.

    As I said, Trace Minerals Research “Mega Mag” is around $13 for a bottle that will last about 1 month (the bottle is 118ml and a person should take around 4ml per day, so that will last about 30 days, with 2ml missing, so about 29.5 days) and for that same amount in mag oxide, it would cost you around $46.20

    Dr. Carolyn Dean has a product that is about 4 or 5 times more expensive than the Trace Minerals Research “Mega Mag”. It is a “pico” magnesium chloride. I have not tried it and so I cannot comment on it, but I suspect that it is not so much better than the Trace Minerals Research “Mega Mag” that it would justify the 4x added expense.

    Most people can afford $13 a month, and if you can only take one supplement at all, magnesium is the most important one to take.

    Why are you on this site? Do you have actual real health issues or friends or family with health issues? Well I have both and we have all been helped by the Trace Minerals Research “Mega Mag” and the Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil, which is more expensive than other magnesium oils, but definitely the best magnesium oil out there.

    I am also a massage therapist and I use this oil on my clients. I buy it in gallon sizes and just put it in those little travel sprayers you get at Target etc. It is the cheapest that way, plus I can give a small one ounce bottle to clients who really need it so they can use it at home for their conditions.

    And I would never take money from any of the vitamin or mineral sellers because then my word would not mean anything. I say what I like and what I don’t like with no influence from anyone but my own good judgement.

    Magnesium chloride can help lessen the bad affects of any illness. I do not know about nebulization, so I cannot comment on it, but magnesium chloride does relax the system and the cells as well as make a body better able to absorb vitamins and nutrients from foods.

    Thank you. Maybe you could post some info about Magnesium chloride flakes and how to use them when taking a bath or foot bath.
