... The objective: to make hygienic and biomedical assessment of magnesium as a macrocomponent of drinking water and to determine the significance of its deficiency in the human body and the possibility of its adequate correction. Research methods: bibliometric, comparative, analytical. The work resulted in the analysis of literature data and regulatory documents regarding the rationing of magnesium in drinking water. The standards of magnesium in relation to the magnesium content in the water of surface and underground water sources of Ukraine are given. A comparison of the data obtained with the opinion of WHO experts regarding the rationing of water hardness has been carried out. The inexpediency of rationing magnesium in water is substantiated. The main judgments about the relationship of the magnesium content in drinking water and the incidence of the population are analyzed. The analysis of the causes of magnesium deficiency was performed and the need for its correction was justified. The main provisions of the program for the correction of magnesium deficiency are presented. Key words: drinking water, magnesium, rationing, deficiency, correction.
