Subclinical magnesium deficiency: a principal driver of cardiovascular disease and a public health crisis

In May 2017 Dr. Carolyn Dean released her statement of concern for the Silent Public Health Crisis of magnesium deficiency.

Since that time, cardiovascular researchers James J DiNicolantonio, James H O’Keefe, and William Wilson have released their research echoing the same concern:

Subclinical Mg Def & Heart

In the abstract of the paper, the research team makes these comments:

Because serum magnesium does not reflect intracellular magnesium, the latter making up more than 99% of total body magnesium, most cases of magnesium deficiency are undiagnosed. Furthermore, because of chronic diseases, medications, decreases in food crop magnesium contents, and the availability of refined and processed foods, the vast majority of people in modern societies are at risk for magnesium deficiency. Certain individuals will need to supplement with magnesium in order to prevent suboptimal magnesium deficiency, especially if trying to obtain an optimal magnesium status to prevent chronic disease. Subclinical magnesium deficiency increases the risk of numerous types of cardiovascular disease, costs nations around the world an incalculable amount of health care costs and suffering, and should be a considered a public health crisis. That an easy, cost-effective strategy exists to prevent and treat subclinical magnesium deficiency should provide an urgent call to action.

Please, join us in the urgent call to action by sharing this information with friends, family and your healthcare practitioner.
