Kidney Function and Magnesium

Nov, 2 2020

The kidney plays a vital role in how our body utilizes the circulating Magnesium and how the body recycles it..

If Magnesium intake is low, the kidneys avoid rapid and dramatic falls in extracellular Magnesium concentrations by increasing the amount of Magnesium reabsorption.

The kidney is a major regulator of Magnesium homeostasis, kidney disorders can potentially lead to both Magnesium depletion and overload, and as such increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.1


Therefore, with low Magnesium intakes the Magnesium concentration in urine is significantly reduced because the body hangs onto all the Magnesium it has stored. 

It is very important to keep the kidneys functioning and properly hydrated for maximum Magnesium recycling capabilities.
