Question: Supplement??? If i eat a 10miligrams of magnesium powder everyday, will I die??? If I`m correct, humans need 10 miligrams of Magnesium each day. I do not want to buy supplements which contains Magnesium and eat Magnesium powder instead. will it be dangerous???

Answer: The RDA [Recommended Dietary Allowance] for Magnesium is 300-400mg/day. The UL [upper intake level] is 1000/ml per day. That means that you can safely take up to 1000 mg without the risk of toxicity. So, take a powder or supplement if you want. My nutrition teacher would have said, "Just eat foods with magnesium". If you have a well balanced diet, you wont have to worrie.
