Nuts, beans, seeds, grains, artichokes, spinach to name a few are good sources of magnesium!


In 1912, Trendelenburg observed magnesium’s bronchodilator effects in cows; in 1936, Rosello and Pla demonstrated the same on patients. In vitro studies demonstrated the role of magnesium in the relaxation of bronchial cells.9 In smooth muscle, magnesium decreases intracellular calcium by blocking its entry and its release from the endoplasmic reticulum and by activating sodium-calcium pumps. Furthermore, inhibition of calcium’s interaction with myosin results in muscle cell relaxation. Magnesium also stabilizes T cells and inhibits mast cell degranulation, leading to a reduction in inflammatory mediators. In cholinergic motor nerve terminals, magnesium depresses muscle fibre excitability by inhibiting acetylcholine release. Lastly, magnesium stimulates nitric oxide and prostacyclin synthesis, which might reduce asthma severity.9,10

In other words, magnesium is good for asthma!
