There are two dangerous conditions with your name on them lurking out there. In fact, this deadly duo is gunning for ALL of us.
They’re ancient enemies of the entire human race. And unlike infections that come and go, this pair only gets worse over time.
I’m talking about the twin terrors of stroke and diabetes. But new research reveals a way to fight BOTH at the same time.
It’s so easy, it’s almost effortless. And it’s so inexpensive that it’s practically free.
If every American were to take this one simple action, tens of thousands of lives would likely be saved every year.
Unfortunately, just the opposite is happening. Most Americans not only AREN’T getting enough of the disease-beating super-mineral magnesium… they’re falling well short.
But you can change that in a hurry. And today, I’m going to share just how to do it.
Mineral slashes risks for two top killers
More on magnesium in a moment. But first of all lets take a look at those killer conditions.
Stroke is America’s number five cause of death, claiming almost 3,000 American lives EVERY week. And when it doesn’t kill you, it can WRECK your life. With stroke now a top cause of disability, too.
Diabetes is our number seven leading killer. But that number’s deceptive. Because diabetes is also directly linked to heart disease, which is the nation’s TOP killer.
And diabetes not only can lead to loss of life but the loss of QUALITY of life too. Many folks with diabetes end up battling pain, disability, and other side effects both from the disease and its treatments.
But there’s a way to beat back stroke AND diabetes risks at the same time. New research reveals how a simple mineral – one you should be getting anyway, but are probably missing out on – could help slash your risk of both.
The secret is humble magnesium. A powerful mineral that rarely gets the attention it deserves. But it’s time to change that.
The new study finds magnesium could cut your risk of…
- diabetes by 22 percent
- stroke by 11 percent
- ischemic stroke by 12 percent
Along with cutting your risk of diabetes and stroke, magnesium is also essential to blood pressure, bone strength, brain health, and roughly 300 or so OTHER functions inside your body.
Make it the RIGHT magnesium
So, obviously, magnesium is super important. Yet most folks aren’t getting nearly enough of it. The modern diet is already low in magnesium to start with.
And what there is of this vital mineral is often in a form your body can’t absorb well. In some cases, you can use only about 20 percent of the magnesium in everyday foods.
That’s why studies show between 70 percent and 80 percent of America’s seniors don’t get enough.
Now you know me. When you can get all the nutrients you need from your diet, I am all for it. And you WILL find magnesium in leafy green vegetables, nuts, legumes, and seeds.
But the fact is because of the absorption factor magnesium may turn out to be a case where a supplement is necessary to reach your optimum levels.
Talk with your doctor about whether taking extra magnesium might be right for you. And if you do choose to try a supplement, be sure to avoid the “cheap stuff” like magnesium oxide. Look for a high-quality form that’s more readily absorbed instead, such as magnesium glycinate.
