Hi

 

What brand are you giving?

I contacted the makers of Peter Gillham's Natrual Vitality and this is what they told me

 

In the book The Magnesium Miracle by Carolyn Dean, M.D., N.D. she says the following for an RDA of magnesium:

 

Children 1 to 3 years: 80mg

Children 4 to 8 years: 130mg

Children 9 to 13 years: 240mg

 

If you were to use this rule of thumb then a ¾ teaspoon would be the dosage for a six year-old. If a person ingests more magnesium than they can absorb at once then it is eliminated through the bowels and can be in the form of diarrhea. With this in mind, you may want to start with 1/4 teaspoon for your boy, while monitoring the stools that they are not too loose. If all is well then increase to 1/2 teaspoon the next day. Continue in the same manner until you have reached the dose ¾ teaspoon or less.

 

I would assume a 15 year old might be in the adult dossage?

Your best bet is to contact the company of the brand you are using so you don't over dose.
