      The trial should be completed this month. This was a Phase 3 trial. All the trials were conducted on people with moderate to severe tinnitus. The trial was double blind--i.e., some people were given magnesium while others were given a placebo--which gives it clinical significance.

      From the Phase 2 trial, completed in 2011, researchers noted that magnesium supplementation significantly reduced tinnitus severity. See http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01273883

      I took magnesium for a while maybe 6 months. I am not sure it helped my T but I am sure it helped me in other ways such as with my anxiety and stress as magnesium so I believe it was worth it. I no longer supplement magnesium or anything else because I have such a healthy diet I believe I get all need. There are not many things you can do that can directly affect your T but indirectly there are ways of coping.

      Best absorption of Magnesium is Magnesium Gluconate.
      Many people have gastric issues when starting.

      ive just started supplementing with mg threonate as it is the most readily absorbed form of mg (or so ive been told..). I do have depleted serum mg, so I thought this would be appropriate. my cardiologist also wanted me to trial mg to see if it impacts on my bouts premature ventricular contractions and hand/leg cramps, which are very uncomfortable. I don't expect miracles so far as my t goes, but because I feel mg has so many other useful applications, I will stay on this long term. I think it has settled my nerves a little, which is a good thing.

      Results of this most recent magnesium trial haven't yet been published in any scientific journal, as far as I could find.

      The measured values have however been published on the study's ClinicalTrials.gov page in January 2015. I've embedded some screenshots below.

      There is also another study of the same name, article published in 2011, which you can see here.
