Despite all the “breakthrough” drugs designed to avoid heart attack—despite statins, betablockers, ACE inhibitors, and more—heart disease remains the number-one killer of Americans. Are we missing something? The answer is yes. But the substance we’re missing is not new and not a surprise to many experts in the field. For decades, scientists and medical researchers have known about a common mineral that can effectively combat many heart-related conditions. And unlike the pharmaceuticals now in use, this supplement has no dangerous side effects. In their new book, Magnificent Magnesium, world-renowned cardiologist Dr. Dennis Goodman shines a spotlight on magnesium, the mineral that can maximize your heart health.
The author begins by explaining the role that magnesium plays in many life processes and exploring how a deficiency of this substance can lead to serious health issues, including muscle cramps, nausea, fatigue, depression, anxiety, headache, insomnia, and heart failure. He then details magnesium’s astounding heart-healthy benefits, along with the additional advantages it provides in reversing osteoporosis and decreasing the risk of type 2 diabetes. Since all magnesium is not equal, Magnificent Magnesium offers clear instructions for finding the most effective magnesium supplements available and using them to greatest effect. The author closes by examining why this simple supplement has been overlooked for so many years
Many drugs are designed to relieve the symptoms of heart disease, but none of them eliminates the root cause of the problem. In Magnificent Magnesium, you will discover how a simple, all-natural mineral can help you regain control of your health and improve the function of your heart.
