heart disease is caused by magnesium deficiency. A vast and convincing body of research, largely ignored, has
convinced us and many collegues of this fact."
"Because of the problems with supplementing directly with DHEA, transdermal
magnesium chloride mineral therapy holds great promise for DHEA hormonal supplementation because taking
magnesium could counteract the heart attack and stroke hazards of synthetic DHEA hormone replacement therapy.

effects like flare-ups of acne. ?" S. Seelig, MD, MPH, author of "The Magnesium
A study of over 10,000 people in the United States found that 79% were not consuming the US RDA daily intake of
magnesium in their diet. Further, the study showed that 26 percent of the people in the study were taking magnesium
supplements and it was this group of people that demonstrated lower levels of C-Reactive protein. Elevated
C-Reactive protein is quickly becoming one of the most powerful predictors of heart disease.

An analysis of seven major clinical studies shows that intravenous magnesium reduced the risk of death by 55
percent after acute heart attack. These results were published in the prestigious "British Medical Journal" and the
widely read journal "Drugs".

In studies of natives from Greenland, the Bantu peoples of southern Africa, Bedouin people of the middle east and
Aborigines of Australia, incidences of high blood pressure and heart disease were low due to high levels of
magnesium in their drinking water and food. When these people moved to urban areas and began eating a modern diet,
they developed high blood pressure and heart disease as often as those in the industrialized western countries.
A study of 21 people published in the journal Hypertension in 1989 found that taking 625 milligrams of magnesium
daily significantly reduced blood pressure.

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, published in the British Journal of Nutrition in 1997, people who took
411 to 548 milligrams of magnesium daily achieved a reduction in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

In a study of people who are borderline hypertensive, Drs. Burton and Bella Altura, two of the leading researchers
in the field of magnesium, report that 70 to 80 percent have significantly depressed blood-ionized magnesium
In a study of 141 patients with strongly symptomatic Mitral Valve Prolapse, 60 percent of the people had low levels
of magnesium. This is compared to only a 5% magnesium deficiency for the control group. Magnesium supplementation
given for 5 weeks reduced the symptoms of chest pain, palpitation, anxiety, low energy, faintness, and difficulty
breathing by 50 percent in this group.
Note: Mitral Valve Prolapse (MVP) is a disorder where the Mitral Valve of the heart fails to completely close off
one of the chambers in the heart during contraction.
