Magnesium and High Blood Pressure
Magnesium exerts a protective effect against heart attacks and is also helpful in the treatment of high blood pressure.
Studies from 12 randomized controlled trials showed that participants receiving magnesium supplements did not have a significant reduction in systolic blood pressure. However they had a significant reduction in their diastolic blood pressure. This finding emphasized the importance of magnesium preferably through natural sources as it will be better absorbed in this state.
