A new study from Mexico City's National Institute of Cardiology has found a link between low levels of magnesium and higher risk of high blood pressure and heart problems.
When comparing against people with low levels of magnesium, the study found that people with higher levels of magnesium in their blood (greater than 2.18mg/dl) benefited from:
- 48% lower odds of having high blood pressure
- 69% lower odds of having type 2 diabetes
- 42% lower odds of having coronary artery disease
The evidence to support the benefits of supplementing with magnesium is growing, with The National Institutes of Health (NIH) advising that magnesium also helps to maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keep heart rhythms steady, support a healthy immune system and keep bones strong.
The European Food Standard Agency (EFSA) has recently reported the importance of magnesium in maintaining normal bones and teeth, reducing tiredness and fatigue and improving muscle contraction.
