    I can't remember the study but there was one that showed an athlete that is deficient and was given supplemental magnesium improved his or her performance by quite a bit whereas an athlete who wasn't deficient did not benefit from additional magnesium performance wise. So, if you're deficient, chances are your gym performance is suffering and I believe a boat load of studies support this. I'm working off memory here.

    I've noticed that I was quite deficient (50%) in magnesium and, if I recall correctly, quite a few people tend to be deficient in magnesium.

    Only ish I have with brazil nuts is that it is extremely high in phytic acid. I believe it's one of the highest, which would reduce the absorption of magnesium.

    I'd just supplement, personally. I haven't found it to be easy to get sufficient magnesium through my diet because I just don't consume foods high in magnesium.

    It's one of those things that if you have good kidney function, it won't cause harm to supplement with.

    Thanks. I think it worth if I give a try. Really doubt that I hit daily recommendation.

    On a side note: Brazillian nuts are very expensive here in Brazil (like U$35/kg).

    How much do you guys take? I didn't have my mag/zinc tested but I am getting it checked just incase

    Also I found out I am very low in Vitamin D and was recommended to supplement it for a potential increase in testosterone (surprisingly) can anyone touch on this?

    My mag supplement comes out to be like 133% of RDA for 3 capsules, so depending on what I eat I either take 2 or 3. If you're very low in vitamin d I'd get a script from a doctor since OTC probably won't be enough to bring you back to normal

    Zinc is also good to supplement with, its got aromatase inhibitory effects, and test increase abilities;

    I doubt it improves test unless your deficient in it.. vitamin D supplementation didn't show a test increase unless you are deficient.

    vitamin D isn't actually a vitamin but a hormone that our body makes from cholesterol. I'm not sure on the physiology of it but iirc the testes have been shown to be an area of vitamin D synthesis (??????), and studies indicate an increase in circulating vit D to an increase in testosterone

    RDI = 14mg men, 8mg women

    above numbers are australian, but i don't think the RDA would be any different (if it is it would be minute)

    I am kinda surprised I am deficient in Vitamin D I lived in florida for awhile.. lots of sunlight. I'm wondering if my body is somewhat resistant to it as I have heard of this happening to some people.

    I find it is helpful with cramping during my workouts when I am training with very high volume if I take it earlier that morning.

    However I try to avoid it because I heard it, like creatine and whey protein, can shrink your testicles and cause acne.

    this is just going off memory but ~ hypoparathyroidism can cause vit D deficiency as the parathyroids regulate the hormone responsible for vit D synthesis

    skin colour has an impact, as well as clothing, sun lotion, etc. like for example there's a significant reduction in vitamin d absorption depending on the clothes you're wearing, a somewhat surprising amount i think. also it's something like 10-20 mins of high exposure sunlight a day to reach adequate levels.

It messed me up good as I had nasty headaches for three days afterwards and I had to take it easy with my exercise for two weeks afterwards.
