Magnesium is essential to heart health and the prevention of cardiovascular disease1.
Magnesium is needed to support the electrical activity of the heart, keeping the heart beating over 30 million times a year!
Magnesium is also needed for blood pressure regulation and heart rhythm control.
Scarily, most people are not getting enough magnesium.
What’s more, certain conditions like leaky gut, intake of processed foods and prescription medications, can cause your body to be depleted of its magnesium stores faster than they can be replaced.
A magnesium deficiency can lead to many health problems, especially for the heart.
Magnesium exists in your cells, bones and muscles. That’s why it’s important for testing to go beyond just a mere analysis of the blood – you must know what’s happening inside the cell.
Research has shown that people with a higher intake of magnesium have a lower risk of heart disease2.
Studies have also revealed that the higher your blood level of magnesium the lower your risk of coronary artery calcification3. This is a crucial point.
Additionally, it has been discovered that higher levels of magnesium are associated with lower levels of the inflammatory marker, C-reactive protein4, which is linked to heart problems.
The more inflammation, the higher your risk of EVERYTHING.
Magnesium is involved in more than 300 cellular reactions including those that impact:
The heart health benefits of magnesium include but are not limited to:
Depending on your life status, you need at least 300-500 mg of magnesium daily, usually more.
Most Americans are not getting enough magnesium in their diet. Elderly people and those with other chronic health conditions tend to be at risk for magnesium deficiencies as mineral absorption is impaired in these populations.
Nature intended for you to get enough magnesium from food. There are many Paleo food sources of magnesium, but often, food alone is not enough and supplementation is needed.
That because food is less nutritious today than it was in the past. Modern farming practices have depleted the soil. Air pollution is prevalent. Processed foods are the norm for most Americans, and the excessive amounts of sugar in most diets comes at the expense of minerals like magnesium.
Of the nine common forms of magnesium, there are five that are imperative to heart health. These are magnesium malate, magnesium citrate, magnesium taurinate, magnesium bisglycinate chelate, and magnesium orotate.
When used as a supplement, magnesium needs to be attached to another molecule to ensure absorption and use by the body.
