Magnesium for treating CVD, T2D, and asthma
Magnesium, referred to as Mg on the periodic table of elements, is a common component of lightweight metals and is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body. Seawater is rich in magnesium.
A number of health problems have been linked with low intakes and blood levels of magnesium, including type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, elevated C-reactive protein, hypertension, atherosclerotic vascular disease, sudden cardiac death, osteoporosis, migraine headache, asthma, and colon cancer.
Magnesium serves as an essential catalyst and enzyme cofactor for more than 300 necessary bodily functions.
