The Age-Defying Power of Antioxidants - (Aug, 2010 bioscience headlines)

The Marvels of the “Miracle Mineral”
Antioxidants can help restore youth, replenish energy, and even improve heart health. But did you know that one mineral is so vital that deficiency doubles your chance of death? And guess what? Experts estimate that 80 percent of the population is exactly that.

That miracle mineral is magnesium.
The claim that magnesium deficiency doubles your chances of death is quite genuine. The finding came from a study published in The Journal of Intensive Care Medicine. But the conclusion comes as no surprise to leading experts in the field. They agree that magnesium is critical to long life and good health.

“Magnesium deficiency triggers 22 conditions,” says Dr. Carolyn Dean, M.D. As a magnesium expert, she should know. She has led medical research on the subject for over 30 years. She currently serves as the Medical Director of the Nutritional Magnesium Association and wrote The Magnesium Miracle.

Among the 22 conditions that magnesium deficiency can cause, she lists anxiety, diabetes, heart disease, and migraines. And she notes that “the introduction of magnesium can help alleviate these conditions.”

Dr. Mark Hyman – a Massachusetts physician who serves on the Board of Advisors of Georgetown University – also champions magnesium. “In my practice, this nutrient is one of my secret weapons against illness,” he says. “Yet [over] half of Americans are deficient in this nutrient and don’t know it.”

“I remember using magnesium when I worked in the emergency room,” says Dr. Hyman. “It was a critical ‘medication’ on the crash cart. If someone was dying of [an] irregular heart beat, we used intravenous magnesium. If pregnant women came in with seizures, we gave them high doses of magnesium.”

Benefits of Magnesium
Magnesium is an essential element of good health. It is responsible for over 300 enzyme reactions and is present in all bodily tissues. It’s a critical component in bones, muscle and brain. And your cells need it to make energy, stabilize membranes, and help muscles relax.
It can fight depression, fatigue, and even kidney disease. And it’s critical to many essential bodily functions. But let’s look more closely at just one area that it benefits. Read more? >>
