Magnesium And Cardiovascular Disease

Magnesium and cardiovascular disease -

Metabolism of magnesium is very important to insulin sensitivity and blood pressure regulation. The observed associations between magnesium metabolism, diabetes, and high blood pressure increase the likelihood that magnesium metabolism may influence cardiovascular disease.

There has been some observed association between higher blood levels of magnesium with lower risk of coronary heart disease. In addition, some dietary surveys have suggested that a higher magnesium intake may reduce the risk of stroke. There is also evidence that low stores of magnesium increase the risk of abnormal heart rhythms, which may increase the risk of complications after a heart attack. These studies suggest that consuming recommended amounts of magnesium may be beneficial to the cardiovascular system. Please consult your physician if you have any concerns about whether or not you are getting enough magnesium in you diet. As you have read over the past several days magnesium is very important and beneficial to your health.

Blessings for a Glorious Day!
