Magnesium and kidney damage...

Posted by

Hello Doctor Stoll,

I have two quick questions if you don't mind.

My sister-in-law who was taking calcium/magnesium was told
by her doctor at Kaiser to stop taking the magnesium. She
was told that the calcium is fine, but the magnesium would
damage her kidneys. Is there any truth to that?

Secondly, what supplements (are vegetables) can be taken to
strengthen the kidneys?

Thank you,

Thomas

Hi, Thomas.

In MY opinion, this Kaiser doc is blowing methane. I would certainly like to see ANY research that shows kidney damage from magnesium!

If he is ignorant why does he not just keep his mouth shut?
If he doesn't KNOW he is ignorant, why is he still charging people for his advice?

Demand to see the research and he will get mad and figure out a way to get you out of his face.

The binder/filler you find under "other ingredients" in many of the vitamin supplements today contain magnesium stearate. It is not the same at all as magnesium mineral. In fact, magnesium stearate is an oil used by many companies as lubricant, which some individuals may be sensitive to. Magnesium stearate has been known to clog the microvilli lining in the intestinal wall, which can cause a decrease in nutrient absorption. Look for pharmaceutical grade vitamins with "other ingredients: none" for the purest products you can. You can find many products in powder form sold by the following three companies that are about as pure as available on the market:
1. www.lef.org
2. pureencapsulation.com
3. www.youngagain2000.com
4. Carlson Lab
