Known for its ability to promote bone, muscle and nerve health, magnesium can support healthy blood pressure levels and regulate energy production.
In addition, magnesium has been shown to reduce risk factors for metabolic syndrome, which can increase the chance of developing type-2 diabetes and heart disease, according to the Toronto Sun.
The story mentions that other studies on magnesium have revealed it might provide the following benefits:
- Decreased risk of developing gallstones
- Help in preventing strokes
- Enhanced bone health in girls 8 to 14
Magnesium is readily available in nutritional supplements, and along with malic acid and ginkgo biloba, might help those who suffer from fibromyalgia and other conditions.
