Are your low levels of magnesium causing your heart disease? Can it be the culprit actually leading to all the other factors that cause heart disease? Factors like plaque in your arteries, high cholesterol, high blood pressure… The experts think so, but what can you do to change this when you've already got the disease?
So is it low magnesium levels that cause heart disease
or a diet high in saturated fats?
Well, it seems to be both… And here’s why!
Processed foods have low magnesium levels, and a typical westerner’s diet consists of a lot of processed foods that are high in saturated fats.
You might be eating food that you think is healthy and nutritious. But because of high allergy risks, most foods don’t have nuts in them; and nuts contain high levels of magnesium.
Another reason manufacturers leave nuts out of their products is because of their high fat
content. Even though it’s good fat
, they can claim “low-fat” products, even if it’s not as healthy as it could be.
Magnesium deficient mothers give birth to magnesium deficient babies and the downward spiral continues
Magnesium is important to every cell of the body. Plus it plays a role in fighting off injury and the repair of injured tissues so you need to ensure that you’re getting the right dose in your diet.
A simple blood test can determine if you’re magnesium deficient.
· Green leafy vegetables like spinach
· Some whole grains
Take the upper hand on heart disease and make sure you get your daily dose of magnesium.
