Important facts about magnesium which may surprise you

Did you know that magnesium deficiencies have been shown to increase cardiac arrhythmias? Magnesium is one of the most important minerals because magnesium affects many functions, but this reviewed research focused on cardiovascular disease.

The research included studies of 313.041 individuals and investigated associations of circulating and dietary magnesium with cardiovascular disease and ischemic heart disease(Del Gobbo LC,,2013).

Cardiovascular disease risk decreased when circulating and dietary magnesium increased.

If you are going to supplement with magnesium, it is better to take a formula which includes other important minerals since taking only one mineral will affect the level of another one. To read more about this click here.
