Arrow Magnesium and Sudden Cardiac Death in Women

Magnesium May Lower Sudden
Death Risk in Women

December 2010—Magnesium, a mineral that helps sustain a normal heartbeat, may lower a woman’s risk for sudden cardiac death, according to a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.



Harvard scientists analyzed 26 years’ worth of information from 88,375 women enrolled in the Nurses’ Health Study, of whom 505 died when their hearts suddenly stopped. The highest dietary intakes of magnesium were associated with a 37% drop in risk.

In addition to supporting heart health, magnesium helps nerves and muscles relax and helps strengthen bones. Muscle weakness and spasm, high blood pressure and persistent headaches are all possible signs of inadequate magnesium stores.

Good sources of magnesium include raw pumpkin and sunflower seeds, leafy greens, black and navy beans, and some types of fish. However, surveys have found that many Americans don’t get enough of this mineral in their diets. (from energytimes)
