What is Magnesium Oxide
Magnesium oxide is a type of dietary supplement most commonly prescribed by doctors for low magnesium levels in the body. Magnesium oxide may also be used as an antacid or as a strong laxative right before surgery. Although it is available without a prescription, a doctor should be consulted before taking this supplement.
Magnesium oxide most often comes in tablet or capsule form, but can be occasionally found in liquid form as well. It should be taken with a glass of water and never on an empty stomach. Capsules should not be broken up, chewed, or crushed, but instead swallowed whole. If a dose is missed, a double dose should never be taken. This supplement should be stored at room temperature and out of moisture.
How Magnesium Oxide Works
Magnesium is important to the body as it helps maintain the health of muscles and nerves. Low magnesium levels may simply be caused by a poor diet, but alcoholism and many diuretics will also deprive the body of magnesium. Eating foods high in magnesium, such as green vegetables, avocados, bananas, and nuts, is a good way to boost magnesium levels in the body without taking supplements. Applications of Magnesium Oxide
Here's look at several popular applications of Magnesium Oxide as the following:
Magnesium oxide in its hydrated form (magnesium hydroxide) is commonly used as an antacid. This works because magnesium oxide is a basic substance, meaning that it will neutralize acidity and end indigestion due to too much acid. Magnesium hydroxide is the active ingredient in such common over-the-counter remedies as milk of magnesia, Mylanta and Maalox.
Magnesium oxide also has short-term laxative effects and is prescribed for temporary relief from constipation.
Drying Agent
Magnesium oxide is a popular drying agent. In powder form, it is hygroscopic in nature, meaning that it attracts water molecules to itself from its surrounding environment. In doing this, the magnesium oxide will pull those molecules away from other things, keeping them dry.
Libraries and other large book and paper storage facilities will often use powdered magnesium oxide to help preserve paper. Rock climbers often use magnesium oxide as a way to reduce moisture from perspiration on their hands and handheld equipment, though other mineral powders are also used for this purpose.
Magnesium oxide is used as a refractory agent in the construction of crucibles. A crucible is a container which is intended to be placed in extremely high temperatures for the sake of heating its contents. Since the crucible itself must not be affected by the heat, it must be made with substances which retain their properties at high heat. Magnesium oxide is such a substance, so it is used in this manner.
Due to these same heat-resistant properties, magnesium oxide powder makes an excellent insulator. It is used as the mineral component of mineral-insulated copper-clad cables, a form of industrial cable used for the protection of particularly critical electrical circuits during a fire, including fire protection devices such as alarms or smoke control systems.
Dietary Supplement
Since it is a good source of magnesium, magnesium oxide is used as or in dietary supplements for humans and animals. In the case of animals, this is delivered as a food additive. For humans it can come in pill form or be included in multivitamins.
Other Uses
Magnesium oxide is often used in optical applications due to its refractive index (light-reflecting properties) in crystal form. Its basic properties are also utilized in the treatment of leather and its hygroscopic properties in the packaging of nuclear waste.
Magnesium Oxide Side Effects
Side effects of magnesium oxide include itching, possibly with a rash or hives, fatigue, both physical and mental, dizziness and nausea, and mood swings. Side effects range from mild to serious, though most people taking the supplement do not develop, or are not bothered by, side effects. If a person does develop side effects, he or she should consult a medical professional.
