ence of, or with the participation of magnesium ions. The nutrient can affect neurotransmiters’ binding to receptors, stabilize membranes via binding to phospholipids, and modulate Ca2+ and K+ ionic currents through membranes. Therefore, food rations used in the feeding of the soldiers should include full coverage of the body’s needs for this element, taking into account the specificity and nature of the performed service. Aim of the work: The aim of the work was estimation of fulfilment of nutrition norms for magnesium by the food rations used for Polish soldiers alimentation within the space of 30 years. Methods: Magnesium content was estimated in 1568 daily food rations planned for soldiers’ nutrition as well as in the rations given for consumption and really consumed. Samples of daily food ration given for consumption collected in military units and magnesium content was indicated by atomic absorption spectrometry, using the FAAS flame technique. Taking into account magnesium content in post consumption wastes the supply of magnesium in really eaten ration was assessed as well. Results of the researches carried out in the Military Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology between in the years 1975-2005were analysed. Results: It was found that average magnesium content in the daily rations planned for soldiers’ alimentation ranged, depending on the kind of ration, from 402.0±56.3 mg to 616±54.9 mg. Obtained values met from 63.8% to 174.0% of recommended amounts. Magnesium content in the rations given for consumption was lower and amounted from 354.7±63.6 mg to 496.4±78.6 mg, what met from 57.6% to 120.0% of obligatory norms. Rations really eaten delivered from 268.7mg to 428,7mg of magnesium. It covered from 46.7% to 98.2% of recommended amounts. Magnesium content in the daily rations depended on the season and ranged from 264.0±47.0 mg in rations served in spring to 480.0±40.0 mg in rations served in autumn.
