As many as 80 percent of Americans are deficient in this vital mineral that most people don’t think about.
Not only is magnesium involved in heart and bone health, it’s found in 300 enzymes in the body. Magnesium plays a role in digestion, production of neurotransmitters, and the regulation of insulin.
Too much caffeine or alcohol, not enough leafy greens in the diet, and certain medications can cause low magnesium. And as we age, magnesium levels become harder to maintain.
As far as your heart goes, recent research has confirmed that even a minor deficiency in magnesium can result in stiffened arteries, heart arrhythmias (irregular heart beat), and increases the chances that a heart attack will be fatal.
