Curious about the benefits of magnesium to your heart health and well-being? This will help but I believe MOST could also benefit from the vital amino acid, L-Arginine, for the production of Nitric Oxide.
Minerals for optimal health and well-being
A well-balanced whole food diet that's abundant in minerals is essential for maintaining optimal health. Minerals are necessary for a variety of bodily functions from the formation of strong bones and teeth, blood, skin and hair, better muscle and nerve function — including your heart.
One mineral that is essential for your body's biochemical processes to work efficiently is magnesium. It is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body, and the highest concentration of magnesium is found in the heart's left ventricle.
Magnesium plays a vital role in many cellular processes and is linked with a variety of enzymes that control carbohydrate, fat, protein and electrolyte metabolism. Several hundred enzymes are dependent on magnesium.
Magnesium is found in low levels in most foods and is abundant in foods like avocado, leafy greens, beans and lentils, nuts and seeds, quinoa and other unrefined grains.
Health benefits of magnesium
It is estimated that between 50-80 percent of the population of America are magnesium deficient.
While it is thought that we get all our body's magnesium need from our diet alone, the growing magnesium deficiency trend suggests that nutrient density of raw foods has greatly diminished and that our love of processed foods, and their low nutrition value, plays a big part in causing our mineral deficiencies.
The RDA (Recommended Daily Amount) of magnesium is about 300 milligrams, but the average diet provides less than 250 milligrams per day. Many health practitioners recommend a daily in taking of magnesium of 400-420 mg for men and 310-320 mg for women.
Magnesium and heart health
A major function of magnesium is as an electrolyte which is crucial for all electrical activity in your body. Electrolytes are what your cells (especially nerve, heart, and muscle cells) use to maintain voltages across their membranes and to carry electrical impulses to other cells.
A magnesium deficiency hampers electrical signals from being sent or received, which keep your heart from pumping blood. Your heart needs an abundance of magnesium to support proper function, without it can lead to high blood pressure, cardiac arrhythmia, cardiovascular disease, and even sudden death.
Heart disease is the #1 killer
Heart disease is the #1 killer around the world. 80 million Americans have heart disease. That's 1 out of 3 adults!
Heart attack victims increase their chances of survival if they get given intravenous magnesium. Studies have shown that when a heart attack occurs, there is a massive dumping of magnesium from the heart muscle. This weakens the heart, making it susceptible to fatal cardiac arrhythmia.
With natural healing supplementation, you can prevent and reverse heart disease. It is possible to unclog your arteries of the Velcro-like plaque that causes atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, heart attack or stroke.
Benefits of L-Arginine and cardiovascular health supplementation
You've now learned how important magnesium is for maintaining heart health and general well-being. But you can still go one step further and strengthen your cardiovascular health and help prevent heart disease. You can begin experiencing improved health and well-being by increasing your L-Arginine intake.
Arginine is a vital amino acid that's considered as one the most important discoveries in preventing and evening reversing cardiovascular disease because it naturally boosts the production of the powerful neurotransmitter Nitric Oxide.
Nitric Oxide is absolutely crucial to your well-being. It is regarded as the most significant molecule in the body for its ability to reduce stress on the heart, regulate blood pressure, improve circulation, and reduce plaque in blood vessels. It's the body's way of preventing strokes and heart attacks.
Medical published clinical studies have proven scientifically that Nitric Oxide created by arginine will do the following:
Widen the blood vessels
(Increasing blood flow throughout the body)
Soften the blood vessels
(reversing the hardening of the arteries)
Relax blood vessels
(overcoming most high blood pressure)
Inhibit and melt away plaque
(preventing and reversing atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, heart attack, stroke, and peripheral artery disease)
So that's it for this blog post. I hope you found value and learned about magnesium and how it benefits cardiovascular system health.
