Do you suffer from high blood pressure?
If you do, you may be deficient in MAGNESIUM
An observational study examined the effect of various nutritional factors on incidence of high blood pressure in over 30,000 US male health professionals. After four years of follow-up, it was found that a lower risk of hypertension was associated with dietary patterns that provided more magnesium, potassium, and dietary fibre.
New scientific evidence from DASH clinical trials is strong enough that the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure states that diets that provide plenty of magnesium are positive lifestyle modifications for individuals with hypertension. This group recommends the DASH diet as a beneficial eating plan for people with hypertension and for those with "prehypertension" who desire to prevent high blood pressure.
Many healthcare professional are realising that blood pressure tablets are wrongly targeted for many people, and can cause undesirable side effects.
Magnesium and diabetes
Low magnesium may worsen insulin
resistance, a condition that often precedes diabetes. The kidneys will excrete
magnesium during periods of severe hyperglycemia (significantly elevated blood
glucose). In older adults, correcting magnesium depletion may improve insulin
response and action.
