Oral Magnesium and Asthma Management

In the February 2019 Primary Care Respiratory Medicine, an article looks at the role of magnesium supplements for management of bronchial asthma. The authors of the articles conducted database searches for studies relating to oral magnesium supplements, and eight studies fit the criteria. While oral magnesium was found to improve lung function at week eight of the studies, there were no other effects on measured outcomes. The researchers conclude “oral magnesium cannot be recommended as adjuvants to standard treatment for mild to moderate asthmatic individuals.”
