The American diet is also said to be low in Mg, so when the Lyme bacteria are using it up too, it's easy to get low. I
Mg every day, even though I've been done with
Lyme for several years. I
take about 400 mg of Mg per day (half in the morning, half in the evening), and that's about 100% of the minimum daily requirement. If I still had Lyme, I might try taking more, but if you get diarrhea, then back off on the dose, so I read.
