The cross-sectional study, published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society (2005, vol 53 no 11), investigated the association of magnesium supplementation and bone mineral density (BMD) in older men and women. Researchers from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, analyzed the data of 2,038 male and female participants aged 70 to 79, participating in the Health, Aging and Body Composition study. Food frequency questionnaires, medication inventories, and whole body bone mineral density measurements were obtained from the participants. The researchers found that high dietary and supplemental magnesium intake was associated with higher bone mineral densities in Caucasian men and women. Bone mineral density was 0.02 grams per cubic centimeters greater in Caucasian men and 0.04 grams per cubic centimeters greater in Caucasian women in the top one-fifth of participants, than those whose intake was lowest. “Greater magnesium intake was significantly related to higher BMD in white women and men,” the study authors write.
