One solution to global magnesium deficiency is for people to drink magnesium-rich water. Adobe Springs water has a whopping 110 mg of magnesium per liter. The daily diet gives you about 150 mg of magnesium so just add 3 liters of magnesium-rich water a day and you have more than the RDA. If you don’t live in the U.S., research bottled water in your area and find one with high levels of magnesium and a half to a third as much calcium.
To find outlets for Adobe Springs water go to The Healthy Water Association’s recommendations and while you’re there you can sample some of the thousands of pages of magnesium research that Paul Mason has archived.
The magnesium water website is a labor of love for Paul. If you’ve read my book, The Magnesium Miracle you may remember Paul’s summary of the 2006 World Health Organization (WHO) symposium, held in Baltimore, called “Calcium and Magnesium in Drinking Water.”
I. There is consensus that most of the world’s people are deﬁcient in magnesium and calcium, resulting in vast numbers of deaths and debilitating illnesses worldwide.
II. There seemed to be agreement that there are only four ways of delivering adequate dietary magnesium to the global population:
A. Advising everyone on earth to take pills for magnesium and calcium. Nothing like this has ever been done, requiring behavior modiﬁcation and decades of expensive advertising and promotion, which often fails. This route is very unlikely on a global level but practical on an individual level.
B. Advising everyone on earth to change their choices of foods to get more calcium and magnesium. This is another route that requires behavior modiﬁcation and will likely fail on a global level but can be implemented on an individual level.
C. Adding calcium and magnesium to tap water. Most people feel this would be very wasteful since 99 percent of tap water is not used for drinking, and calcium especially can build up as scale in plumbing. Fortifying tap water is therefore very unlikely.
D. Requiring bottlers to add the optimal calcium and magnesium to bottled products might be our best option. WHO will study this problem and make a recommendation in 2008 and is likely to choose this alternative.
A follow up on the WHO recommendations didn’t occur until 2009 at which time they published, Calcium and Magnesium in Drinking Water.
I don’t think Paul believes that 25 mg per liter is enough and I certainly don’t. But I suppose it’s a step in the right direction. Paul said that the WHO should have extended their recommendation to all bottled and canned beverages, since many people drink sodas instead of water particularly in countries where the water is often contaminated.
What Paul said then is just as meaningful today. So, whether you’re a consumer, a store owner, a water bottleler, a practitioner or a legislator, promote magnesium in drinking water as a simple solution to dozens of health problems that are affecting millions of people.
P.S. My overall recommendation is for you is to join my 2-year online wellness program called Completement Now! The various types of magnesium to take are on my website under Resources.

NOTE: Only you can know if something is helping you. If you don’t feel well on a supposed beneficial product, listen to your body and stop taking it! Knowing when to Not take something is a big part of taking responsibility for your health!
P.P.S. I cannot answer personal health questions by email. However, please send general questions that I may be able to answer in my blog. But first, google my name with the condition you are inquiring about and see if I’ve already addressed it somewhere on the web.
