Toggle Health Problems and D

Magnesium and Vitamin D - similar, different and synergistic

Magnesium and Vitamin D both help with many of the same diseases, but also have unique capabilities

They are also synergistic, that is, increasing one helps the other.

Interesting to note the similarities and differences of Magnesium and Vitamin D


  • Widespread deficiency of both is due primarily to a single cause during the past century
  • Little toxicity
  • One needs the other to work properly: being deficient in one can cause problems with the other
  • Increasing either decreases the rates of many of the same diseases
  • Both have strong interactions with Calcium and Vitamin K2


  • Magnesium has no long term storage in the body (not in fat) like Vitamin D does
  • Very noticeable reaction if take too much Magnesium, but not vitamin D
  • Body can only absorb so much Magnesium per 6 hours – no limit with vitamin D
  • There are a variety of magnesium compounds – with different bioavailability and reactions

Built the above table from:

Aging; Aggressive Behavior; Alcoholism; Amytrophic Lateral Sclerosis; Alzheimer's Disease; Arrhythmia; Asthma; Attention Deficit Disorder; Autism; Cancer; Cerebral Palsy; Cerebrovascular; Chemical Sensitivity; Chronic Fatigue; Cluster Headaches; Cocaine-related Stroke; Constipation; Cramps; Diabetes; Fluoride Toxicity; Head Injuries, Central Nervous System Injuries; Heart Disease. Heart Attack, Atherosclerosis, Cardiovascular Disease, etc.; HIV, AIDS; Hypertension; Kidney Stones; Magnesium Deficiency; Menopause; Migraine Headache; Mitral Valve Prolapse; Multiple Sclerosis; Nystagmus; Osteoporosis; Peripheral vascular disease; Pregnancy-related problems, Eclampsia; Premenstrual Syndrome, PMS; Psychiatric Disorders; Repetitive Strain Injury; Rheumatoid Arthritis; Sickle Cell Disease; SIDS; Sports-related problems; Stress; Stuttering; Tetanus; Tinnitis, Sound Sensitivity; TMJ; Toxic Shock; Violence

Thought of making a Venn Diagram which would look nicer, but words in a graphic diagram cannot be translated


Hearing Loss was originally associated with only Vitamin D
