Today I’m going to reveal one of the most important minerals for lowering high blood pressure and improving your heart’s health.
In fact, research has demonstrated1-3 the vital role this mineral plays in your cardiovascular health, by reducing your risk for hypertension, stroke, heart attack and plaque build-up in your arteries.
This invaluable mineral is important to the health of every cell and organ, playing a role in over 600 different reactions in your body.
So what mineral am I speaking of?…
When magnesium levels are low, you can have major problems in your muscles and organs.
Symptoms of a deficiency can include unexplained fatigue or muscle weakness, abnormal heart rhythms, eye twitches, muscle spasms, restlessness, insomnia and even hair loss.
Unfortunately, determining a deficiency of magnesium from a simple blood sample isn’t possible, because only 1 percent of the magnesium in your body is found in your blood stream. Instead, most of your magnesium will be found stored in your bones and organs.
It is quite possible to be unaware of a deficiency, which is why it has been dubbed the “invisible deficiency.” Some researchers estimate that up to 80% of American do not get enough magnesium from their diet to replace the magnesium lost.1
I bring this up because studies have shown that less than 25% of US adults are getting the minimum requirements for magnesium – which is only about 300 mgs for women and 400 mgs for men.2
Even more concerning to your overall health, these amounts are just barely enough to stop your body from experiencing the overt symptoms of a deficiency, but not enough to support optimal health.
Magnesium & Blood Pressure
I could go on and on about the importance of Magnesium, but I hope you get the point. However, today I want to focus on lowering your blood pressure.
If you didn’t already know, 1 out of 3 Americans (33%) suffer from high blood pressure (hypertension).3 … which can increase your risk of having a heart attack or stroke. Sadly, ½ of these people don’t even know they have hypertension and less than 20% have this under control.3
In fact, having high blood pressure is known as the “silent killer” because there are no real symptoms. Other than getting your blood pressure tested regularly, it’s hard to tell if yours will be elevated or if it’s normal.
However, the good news is that in a clinical study5, people who had the highest levels of serum magnesium, had a
- 48% lower risk of hypertension
- 69% lower risk of type 2 diabetes
- 42% lower risk for CAC, which is the hardening of your arteries.
All very positive for your heart and overall health.
Better Than A Drug?
One type of drug prescribed for hypertension are “calcium channel blockers”. These are medicines which relax and widen blood vessels, therefore allowing the blood to flow through the blood vessels smoothly, lowering blood pressure.
The good news is that magnesium acts like a calcium channel blocker, easing blood vessel flow and lowering blood pressure – naturally, without any synthetic drugs.
It was found in a human clinical study6 of more than 8,500 people that a higher intake of magnesium may decrease the risk of high blood pressure.
Where To Get Your Magnesium From
Unfortunately, getting optimal magnesium levels can be difficult because most foods are depleted of vitamins and mineral. And most supplements of magnesium are poorly absorbed.
As far as best “magnesium-rich” foods, most of it is greens and vegetables:
|Spinach||Beet greens||Collard greens|
|Turnip greens||Broccoli||Brussels sprouts|
|Kale||Bok choy||Romaine lettuce|
Raw seeds: Pumpkin, sesame and sunflower have the highest
Raw nuts: Cashews, almonds and Brazil nuts are the best sources
Fatty fish: Wild-caught Alaskan salmon and mackerel are the best sources
Unfortunately, getting optimal magnesium levels can be difficult because most foods are depleted of vitamins and mineral.
Obviously, taking a pill a lot easier and more efficient. Unfortunately, there are about 9 common forms of magnesium supplements, which can get very confusing.
- Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate
- Magnesium Oxide
- Magnesium Citrate
- Magnesium Orotate
- Magnesium Chloride
- Magnesium Lactate
- Magnesium Sulfate
- Magnesium Carbonate
- Magnesium Glycinate, Malate & Taurates
The difference between all of these is that some are better absorbed than others. Some will cause diarrhea at a higher dosage. Some are better at relaxing your muscles. Some are better at reducing your stress… etc., etc.
So What’s The Best Form?
Over the years, I’ve tested many different forms and combinations and I’ve discovered the best is a combination of 4 different magnesium’s, which are clinically proven for maximum absorption:
- TRAACS® Magnesium Glycinate
- Amino Acid Chelate
- Albion® Di-Magnesium Malate
- Magnesium Citrate
In fact, when this combination is added to other key herbs and vitamins, you are almost guaranteed lower blood pressure WITHOUT any change in your diet or exercise.
Fastest & Easiest Solution For Improving Your Blood Pressure LevelsSo there are lots of ways for lowering your blood pressure and improving hypertension - diet and exercise being the two important factors. Unfortunately, they take time and most people are either NOT patient or need faster results, with less effort... This is the exact problem I ran into with my own dad. Because of this, I needed to find a simple, easy and fast solution for improving his blood pressure levels in less than 30 days, without the use of harmful prescription drugs or following a restrictive diet. If this is something you're also interested in, you can easily copy this "perfect formula", implement it and start seeing and feeling results within days...
