February is American Heart Month

A recent study found that dietary magnesium intake is associated with a reduced risk of stroke, heart failure, diabetes, and all-cause mortality.

All cells require magnesium, which works as a critical co-factor for hundreds of enzymes. Humans need to take in magnesium from their diet, through whole grains, leafy greens, and nuts, in order to maintain a normal magnesium level.

In the study, over 1 million people were analyzed. The incremental dose of magnesium was 100 mg per day. It was found that individuals taking extra magnesium had a 22% lower risk of heart failure, a 19% lower risk of type 2 diabetes, a 7% lower risk of stroke, and a 10% lower risk of all-cause mortality.

I prefer slow release magnesium, because it prevents the GI side effects (nausea, cramping, stomach upset) that can occur if the magnesium is released all at once.

An intriguing discussion is worth comment. There's no doubt that that
you should publish more on this subject matter,
it may not be a taboo subject but usually people don't speak about these issues.
To the next! Many thanks!!
