Research Studies on Magnesium Oil

Heart Disease and Hypertention
 
A study of over 10,000 people in the United States found that 79% were not consuming the US RDA daily intake of magnesium in their diet. Further, the study showed that 26 percent of the people in the study were taking magnesium supplements and it was this group of people that demonstrated lower levels of C-Reactive protein. Elevated C-Reactive protein is quickly becoming one of the most powerful predictors of heart disease.

An analysis of seven major clinical studies shows that intravenous magnesium reduced the risk of death by 55 percent after acute heart attack. These results were published in the prestigious "British Medical Journal" and the widely read journal "Drugs".

In studies of natives from Greenland, the Bantu peoples of southern Africa, Bedouin people of the middle east and Aborigines of Australia, incidences of high blood pressure and heart disease were low due to high levels of magnesium in their drinking water and food. When these people moved to urban areas and began eating a modern diet, they developed high blood pressure and heart disease as often as those in the industrialized western countries.

A study of 21 people published in the journal Hypertension in 1989 found that taking 625 milligrams of magnesium daily significantly reduced blood pressure.

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, published in the British Journal of Nutrition in 1997, people who took 411 to 548 milligrams of magnesium daily achieved a reduction in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

In a study of people who are borderline hypertensive, Drs. Burton and Bella Altura, two of the leading researchers in the field of magnesium, report that 70 to 80 percent have significantly depressed blood-ionized magnesium levels.

In a study of 141 patients with strongly symptomatic Mitral Valve Prolapse, 60 percent of the people had low levels of magnesium. This is compared to only a 5% magnesium deficiency for the control group. Magnesium supplementation given for 5 weeks reduced the symptoms of chest pain, palpitation, anxiety, low energy, faintness, and difficulty breathing by 50 percent in this group.
 
Note: Mitral Valve Prolapse (MVP) is a disorder where the Mitral Valve of the heart fails to completely close off one of the chambers in the heart during contraction.
 
 
Diabetes
 
Three of the largest studies ever done on the incidence of disease are the Harvard Nurses Health study of 85,000 women, the Health Professionals Follow-up study of 43,000 men, and the Iowa Women's Health study of 40,000 women. All three studies showed that those people with the highest levels of magnesium intake had the lowest risk for developing diabetes.
 
 
Stroke
 
A study of 98 stroke patients admitted to the emergency Room of three hospitals in New York exhibited early and significant magnesium-ion deficits. The stroke patients also demonstrated a high calcium to magnesium ratio, which are signs of increased vascular tone and cerebral vessel spasm.

All deaths due to stroke among Taiwan residents (17,133 cases) from 1989 through 1993 were compared with deaths from other causes (17,133 controls). It was determined that the higher the magnesium levels in drinking water used by Taiwan residents, the lower the incedence of stroke.

Metabolic Syndrome
 
In a 15 year study of 5,000 young adults, it was found that higher intake of magnesium through food or supplements led to a lower likelyhood of developing Metabolic Syndrome.
 
Note: Metabolic Syndrome is characterized as a single person who has several health risk factors at the same time, including abdominal obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetic, etc..

PMS

Recent studies showed that of 192 women taking 400mg of magnesium daily for PMS, 95 percent experienced less breast pain and had less weight gain, 89 percent suffered less nervous tension, and 43 percent had fewer headaches.

Depression
 
A study of approximately 500 depressed people by Dr. RH Cox and Dr. CN Shealy found that the majority of the sufferers were magnesium-deficient. The authors of the study advised clinicians that they should consider the distinct possibility of therapeutic benefit fromt he use of magnesium therapy in chronic depression.

Migraines
 
A group of 3,000 patients given 200 mg of magnesium daily had an 80 percent reduction in their migraine symptoms.
