Ran across this at InformationisBeautiful.net... Pretty cool.

Nice graphic.
Surprising that magnesium is at the bottom of the pile...

Magnesium being low reflects it either doesn't live up to the hype or just a lack of studies that met the authors criteria.

All of the bubbles are for different specific things.

So if relaxation/sleep wasn't specifically looked at for magnesium then it wouldn't be listed as such.

And there is no category for sleep so... yeah.

What a pile of crap.

"Google hits" + scientific evidence + likely that the authors have never worked with anybody health-wise with the compounds nor know when/if a certain supplement is warranted = garbage.

Thanks for sharing, though. JMO.

You're right. Any type of meta-analysis like this is going to have it's flaws.

And the authors don't work in the health field, that's true. Of course, that could be considered a good thing, as they're probably not biased toward any particular supplement(s).

I'm straining to figure out what a layperson is supposed to gain from this, actually.
