Magnesium and the Heart

Thank you for sharing with us your experience.

Indeed, magnesium is an important mineral for the well-functioning of various body cells including: nerves, heart, muscles, etc.

Actually, Magnesium is important in helping our body assimilate carbohydrates, fats, proteins (digestion, absorption and utilization).

With regards to lowering cholesterol properties, Magnesium is known as "Natural Statin". In other words, it regulates the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, responsible for production of cholesterol by our body.

The final result will be improved cholesterol numbers (reduced total/LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, and increased HDL levels).

Normally, magnesium can be taken as supplement with the daily dosage of 345 mg). The normal recommendations include starting with low dose, then, can gradually increase the dosage until is well tolerated.

At the end, such supplements do not do miracles. Adding them to your healthy lifestyle and dietary regimen can be of greater help in lowering cholesterol levels and preventing cardio-vascular events.

Good luck!
