Recommended Daily Allowance

The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is a set of guidelines put together by the Health Council, which indicates how much we need per day on average to stay healthy.
The magnesium RDA is different for men and women:

• Women: 250-300 mg/day (NB: this is increased by 50 mg for breastfeeding women)
• Men: 300-350 mg/day

Actual individual requirements depend on individual factors and lifestyle.
