Magnesium and High Blood Pressure

Published in Natural Medicine Journal, Carolyn Dean, MD, ND provides important commentary on a recent stud entitled : “Effect of magnesium supplementation on blood pressure: a meta-analysis”, by Kass L, Weekes J, Carpenter L. and published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition. 2012 Feb 8. doi: 10.1038/ejcn.2012.4

Key Findings

There was greater blood pressure reduction in crossover trials, which means when people with high blood pressure were not on magnesium, their blood pressure was higher; when they were on magnesium their blood pressure was lower. Also, the higher the magnesium dosage, the lower the blood pressure.
