|MAGNESIUM GOOD FOR YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE|
Nutrition, Metabolism and Cardiovascular Diseases April 7, 2009
In this study it’s shown that magnesium reduces blood pressure in people with high blood pressure. Other studies have reported that more magnesium, potassium and calcium reduce your risk of hypertension.
Researchers worked with 155 people to take part in a double-blinded, placebo-controlled, randomized trial. The subjects were randomly assigned to receive either daily supplements of magnesium oxide or a placebo for 12 weeks.
When the researchers looked specifically at people who already had blood pressure, there were significant decreases in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure in those subjects taking magnesium.
With hypertension increasing in Americans simple, easy, inexpensive treatments should be the first looked at. Magnesium is found in fresh local fruits and veggies as well as whole grains.
