For the groups 1 and 2 it was assigned basic therapy of asthma in accordance with the recommendations of GINA (2011). In the group 1 it had been additionally performed concomitant correction of magnesium deficiency of Magnesium B6 Forte. There had been evaluated the effectiveness of a drug therapy for 12 weeks on the achieved level of asthma control, the frequency of exacerbations, the number of asymptomatic days. Dynamics of the severity of allergic inflammation was assessed by monthly monitoring of levels of nitric oxide in exhaled air (FeNO). Results. After 12 weeks of treatment, the magnesium content in erythrocytes in group 1 (1.79 (1,68-1,89) mmol / L) increased by 15.7% and was statistically significant (p
