Magnesium and Heart Health – A Cardiologist’s Perspective

Dr. Chauncey Randall, cardiologist and author of “The Simple Heart Cure: The 90-Day Program to Stop and Reverse Heart Disease says, “Heart disease is not a normal part of the aging process. Heart disease can be reversed if done properly, but you can also enhance the effect of healthy eating habits, and especially help to lower your cholesterol, with the proper use of nutrients, especially when it comes to lowering cholesterol. Supplements alone won’t lower your heart disease risk; they are best used in combination with taking other major steps, including following a plant-based diet and exercising.”

“Magnesium is a very important mineral. A large-scale government survey found that Americans don’t get enough magnesium from their diet. In fact, the study found that 68 percent of Americans consume less than the U.S. recommended allowances, and that many of those surveyed consumed far less. This is important, because magnesium has been found to help lower cholesterol, keep blood pressure steady, and also is linked to a decreased risk of dying from heart disease. Another study found that people who consumed less than the recommended amount of magnesium were about 1.5 times more likely to have elevated markers for inflammation throughout their entire body.”
