According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 51,000 people died from colorectal cancer in 2014 alone – while breast cancer claimed over 41,000 lives that same year. Now, recent research has shown that a common, inexpensive mineral supplement – magnesium – can play a role in suppressing cellular changes that can precede the development of these types of cancer.
Bone fracture due to osteoporosis is a leading cause of disability in the aging population. Naturally, as you know, calcium and vitamin D tend to play a crucial role in maintaining bone health as we age. However, the role and health benefits of magnesium supplementation could be essential to bone health as well, according to researchers.
Every day, 145 Americans receive the devastating news that they have pancreatic cancer. Aggressive and fast-growing, pancreatic cancer may avoid detection until it is advanced – and it carries a notoriously poor prognosis for survival.
Current research is focused around finding an effective method of prevention – and it turns out that a common, non-toxic and inexpensive mineral may be the key.
Notes at least one study, a deficiency in one particularly critical nutrient may make you twice as likely to die as other people – yet at least half of all Americans remain deficient in this nutrient. The nutrient in question?
Magnesium is an essential mineral for good health and optimal biological function. Not only does magnesium play a vital role in mitochondrial health, it also benefits more than 300 enzymes and more than 3,750 magnesium bonding sites on human proteins.
Magnesium’s main role is to create ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate), the energy currency of the body. It also relaxes blood vessels, supports muscle and nerve function and the proper formation of bones and teeth.
It is no secret that magnesium, the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body, is indispensable for many biochemical functions. But it is only recently that researchers are discovering the relationship between a magnesium deficiency and a shorter life.
Recent research has shown that higher magnesium is not only linked with decreased risk of death from all causes, but also with lower odds of a stroke, type 2 diabetes, and heart failure.
Read on to find out how you can reap the health benefits of magnesium.
Numerous people lack magnesium, and according to the USDA, even half of the population are deficient in this mineral. This mineral is of high importance, as it is required by every single cell in our organism, and it is responsible for more than 300 metabolic processes in the body.
The fast modern lifestyle forces the body to use the supplies of nutrients to deal with stress, Thus, we simply use this mineral more than we have it or consume it through foods. The recommended daily dose of magnesium is 500-1000 mg.
