If you’re an AIM Member, you’ve probably heard about how important magnesium is. You likely know that it’s involved in over 300 biochemical processes or that some estimates show about 80% of the population may not receive adequate amounts. It’s also believed that magnesium deficiency (more severe than inadequacy) may affect up to 15% of the population!
It well known that magnesium helps build strong bones, contributes to energy production, is necessary for muscle contractions and heart rhythm. That’s some very important stuff, and no one should go without. A new study echoes this point.
A meta-analysis published in BMC Medicine (December 2016) has displayed evidence that dietary magnesium may provide protection against several ailments, including cardiovascular disease, type-2 diabetes, stroke and even overall mortality.
Researchers looked at forty studies that compiled data from over 1 million test subjects. Using that huge store of information, scientists determined that those who consumed the most magnesium saw (when compared to those who consumed the least):
- 10% Reduced Risk of Coronary Heart Disease
- 12% Lower Risk of Stroke
- 26% Lower Risk of Type-2 Diabetes
The scientists also believe that anyone who gets an extra 100 mg of magnesium daily could reduce their risk of stroke by 7% and the risk of type-2 diabetes by 19%.
You can get 104 mg of dietary magnesium in every serving of CalciAIM! It has a smooth citrus taste, and it also contains other important vitamins and minerals like vitamin D and zinc.
We also have Mag-nificence relaxing, effective topical magnesium available in both a lotion and a spray. We’ve been a fan of magnesium for years now!
