Noted by famous neurologist Dr.Russell Blaylock as a "remarkable natural substance", magnesium is largely overlooked by traditional medicine.
The following are some of the amazing benefits of the mineral called magnesium:
• Science is proving that has the basic or key factor of many diseases is chronic levels of inflammation. Magnesium has both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. In fact it stops inflammation by inhibiting the calcium-triggered inflammation pathways of cells. (We will cover how calcium is a major trigger for inflammation in an upcoming discussion.)
• Low magnesium levels causes inflammatory cytokines, interleukin-6 and TNF-alpha to elevate in the body, each of which are strongly linked to heart attacks and congestive heart failure. Substance P., another inflammatory marker, greatly rises in the heart muscle and the blood when magnesium levels are low, thus causing heart damage.
• Magnesium is essential for producing energy, reducing inflammation, regulating blood vessels, preventing blood clots, working as an antioxidant. It is also needed for proper immune function. In addition, studies even show that being deficient in magnesium accelerates the aging process.
It is important to note, that just because magnesium levels test "normal" does not mean they are magnesium is not deficient. In fact studies show that organ and tissue magnesium can be severely depleted and still receive a "normal" blood test result. Testing is usually done on the blood, however, 99 percent of the magnesium in our bodies is located within the cells. According to Dr. Blaylock, with only 1 percent is in the blood, so it's easy to say one has a normal test.
Foods rich in magnesium :
