Magnesium Deficiency and Heart Disease are two health issues now been looked at by the medical community.
The common conception when it comes to heart disease is that unsaturated fats and cholesterol are the two major
According to various medical researches done, this is not the case anymore.
The lack of proper level of magnesium in the body not only causes various health issues, but now is also been
seen as a major precursor to heart disease.
Experts in the field of medicine have been studying the correlation between magnesium and heart diseases from as
way back as the early 1900s.
Researchers and doctors who have spent their entire career delving into the issues of magnesium deficiency (and
the health effects it has) have come up with some interesting research.
Research done has drawn some conclusions into the relationship between magnesium and various cardiovascular
symptoms and risk factors.
The various cardio risk factors include (but are not limited to) high blood pressure, cholesterol, hardening
arteries, calcification of tissues and Arterial and plaque accumulation.
All these risk factors can lead to devastating heart diseases.
The lack of magnesium in the body simply amplifies their destructive capabilities.
“What Does This Mean?”
In simple terms, low magnesium levels in your body create a situation where the above-mentioned risk factors are
amplified thus resulting in cardio diseases.
History shows that fats and cholesterol were blamed for increase of these risks, but now research is telling us
Magnesium deficiency is the true culprit.
“Where Did The Early Researchers Go Wrong?”
The attention given to cholesterol and unsaturated fats meant that Magnesium Deficiency and Heart Disease were
not given much thought.
This erroneous pre-judgment of the importance of magnesium in the body is now been recognized by various
researches and medical experts.
The medical community is finding out that when all is said and done about all the different causes of heart
health issues (like arrhythmias, cardiac death, cardiomyopathy, congestive heart failure, etc) “the true puppet
master pulling strings backstage” is magnesium deficiency.
ATP, Heart Cells, and Magnesium.
Our body cells (even our heart cells) are able to remain functional once they have their shot of ATP.
ATP is only created and metabolized when the body is properly supplied with magnesium.
A cell that is not performing and is not producing energy simply withers and dies.
Heart muscle cells are particularly prone to this.
If enough cells die, well, the result is a barrage of heart diseases and health issues stated above.
This is the true worth of magnesium in our bodies.
Apart from working wonders on your cardiovascular system, magnesium is a multifunctional mineral that has been
connected to over three hundred biochemical reactions in the body.
It even chips in when it comes to body detoxifying processes when toxins and other pollutants invade the
Magnesium is an antioxidant with immense body advantages.
Its deficiency in the body should be a matter treated with the utmost urgency.
According to very sharp and very learned people, Magnesium Deficiency and Heart Disease is something that is
real and is happening.
All diets need to have proper amounts of magnesium to ensure the healthy state of the body remains
