Possible Interaction: Aldosterone and Magnesium Cation

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

We conclude that ouabain actions and the effect of angiotensin II on aldosterone is inhibited by an increased level of Mg++ while low levels of Mg++ are stimulatory to both basal and AII action on aldosterone.

In addition to an effect on sodium and potassium, aldosterone can influence the excretion of hydrogen, calcium and magnesium ions and the secretion of renin.

Magnesium ion (Mg) directly inhibits aldosterone production in rat adrenal glomerulosa cells, while potassium ion directly stimulates aldosterone production.
Mg supplementation also may be useful procedure to correct potassium and magnesium deficiency, because Mg itself inhibits aldosterone release from the adrenal glands.
