The biological role of magnesium in obstetrics and gynecology: research data and clinical studies

The article presents the results of clinical studies and research data referring to the role of magnesium in obstetrics and gynecology. The clinical studies dealt with the efficacy of the drug Magne B6. It is emphasized that the use of Magne B6 in pregnant women and gynecological patients requires a selective and differential approach. The main purpose of using magnesium preparations  is  to  correct  magnesium-deficiency  conditions.  Chronic  magnesium  deficiency  developing  due  to  improper  diets  and chronic stresses, and often leading to serious complications of pregnancy should be compensated in good time, not awaiting for the development of urgent situations, by taking specialized preparations of organic magnesium in the form of assimilable salts from the early terms of pregnancy- of them magnesium lactate and citrate have the greatest evidence base.
