A new study of the Mediterranean diet shows that the reason it is so health is due to the fact it has a high magnesium content. Two universities in China have noted that those who consume this type of diet reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. At this point in time it is not possible to rule out other influences. However, based on the size of the analysis, these are very strong findings. Magnesium plays a critical role in more than 300 biological functions, and can help maintain a steady heartbeat.
- Chronically low magnesium levels are associated with with a range of diseases
- Each additional 100-mg intake of dietary magnesium reduces the all-cause mortality risk by 10%
- magnesium deficiency is fairly common, with 2.5% - 15% of the general populace being impacted
"Those who consumed the most dietary magnesium had a 10-percent reduced risk of coronary heart disease, 12-percent reduced risk of stroke and 26-percent reduced risk of type 2 diabetes compared to those who consumed the least."
