YOU and magnesium and stronger bones


The following is from Natural News

New research has found that taking magnesium supplements

could hold the key to stronger bones in middle-aged and elderly

people.  Published in the European Journal of Epidemiology, the

study has suggested that low magnesium concentration in the

body can lead to increased risk of bone fractures.


Academics from the University of Bristol and the University of

Eastern Finland conducted the study by following 2,245 men

between the ages of 42 and 61 over a period of 25 years.

Through the course of their research, they discovered that men

with lower blood levels of magnesium were more prone to the risk

of fractures, particularly hip fractures.  Men who had much higher

blood levels of magnesium were 44 percent less likely to sustain

fractures.  Researchers noted that the 22 men who had elevated

magnesium levels had never experienced a fracture throughout

the follow-up period.


“The findings do suggest that avoiding low serum concentrations

of magnesium may be a promising though unproven strategy for

risk prevention of fractures.  Dr. Setor Kunutsor, lead researcher

and research fellow at the university of Bristol’s Musculoskeletal

Research Unit has said.


The following are some facts about magnesium:

Magnesium keeps the parathyroid gland working normally.  This

is the gland that controls calcium levels, which in turn is essential

for healthy and strong bones.

Aside from ensuring the bone health, magnesium helps the body in

other ways.  This mineral also helps the body convert food into

energy, reduce muscle tension and lessen the pain connected to

migraines and headaches.

Women have a lot to gain from taking in magnesium.  The noted

benefits for women include relief from the symptoms of

premenstrual syndrome and menopause, and minimized risk of

premature labor.


Too much magnesium can be just as dangerous as too little of it.


The following is from Dr. Sircus website-renowned expert on

magnesium that I have his book and followed his website for



Dr. Sircus has lots of research on his website and it will be a

benefit for you to go and visit his website and read some of the

research on his website.

Magnesium has a calming effect on the nervous system and is

considered the “anti-stress” mineral and a natural tranquilizer.

The elderly, magnesium supplements were found to improve

sleep by decreasing the release of cortisol, a known cause of

sleep disruption.  Stress depletes magnesium and magnesium

relieve stress.  When your magnesium levels are low, your

nervous system gets out of balance, and you feel on edge,

naturally resulting in tightening muscles.  When we are under

stress our need to magnesium skyrockets.

Take the right amount of magnesium for your body.
