Subject: Dietary magnesium tied to lower risk of heart disease and diabetes
Recently there has been a tie shown between dietary magnesium and a lowered risk of heart disease and diabetes in general. The increase in magnesium intake was shown to be associated with a nineteen percent reduction with the risk of diabetes in general. An increase with the intake in magnesium also showed a ten percent reduction in the odds of death from various causes during the study itself.
- A diet rich in magnesium – found in foods like leafy greens, fish, nuts and whole grains – may help lower the risk of chronic health problems like heart disease and diabetes, a research review suggests.
- Compared with people who had the lowest levels of magnesium in their diets, people who got the most magnesium were 10 percent less likely to develop heart disease, 12 percent less likely to have a stroke and 26 percent less likely to develop diabetes.
- The study findings suggest that increased consumption of magnesium-rich foods may have health benefits, the authors conclude.
"When researchers looked at the effect of increasing dietary magnesium by 100 milligrams a day, they didn’t find a statically meaningful impact on the total risk of cardiovascular disease or coronary heart disease."
