Conclusion

This study enlarges on previous research that found a relationship between magnesium intake and depression. Although very low magnesium intake seemed to be protective against depression among seniors, it was associated with higher rates of depression in younger adults. Rigorous, randomized clinical trials with adequate power to analyze subgroups are needed to confirm the effects of magnesium on depression.
