Magnesium deficiency can lead to metabolic disruptions that threaten virtually every bodily system. It is a critical – but often overlooked – factor in the development of such potentially life-threatening health problems as:
- high blood pressure
- hardening of the arteries
- coronary artery disease
- heart attack
- irregular heartbeat
- type 2 diabetes
The Magnesium Factor explains how magnesium deficiencies develop, why they are so prevalent, and exactly how they can bring about such disastrous health consequences. The authors tell you how to determine whether you have, or are at risk for, this problem – and precisely what you can do to correct it.
Backed by the latest scientific research, yet written in a clear, accessible style, this book is the authoritative source for information on a subject of vital interest for all health-conscious individuals.
