Magnesium is essential for heart health. In the past, studies have linked it to a lower risk of coronary heart disease and cardiac arrhythmia, better blood pressure and managing preeclampsia. Big-time Magnesium lovers may now not be surprised to learn that the wonderful element might also improve arterial health.
This good news comes courtesy of Nutrition Journal. Researchers tested the magnesium blood serum levels of 1,200 test subjects in Mexico from the ages of 30-75. All were free from the symptoms of cardiovascular disease.
Those with the highest serum magnesium had a 48% less likely chance of having hypertension and were 42% less likely to have coronary artery calcification and 69% less likely of having type 2 diabetes when compared to those with the lowest amounts of magnesium in their bodies.
From Nutrition Journal:
The results of this study strongly suggest that lower serum magnesium levels are associated with coronary artery calcification in Mexican subjects free of clinically apparent cardiovascular disease. Confirmation of these results in other populations is required. Additional prospective studies are also needed to determine if hypomagnesaemia predicts the development and progression of coronary atherosclerosis.
