Many of our readers know the benefits of magnesium when it comes to preventing chronic migraines, but the benefits do not stop with migraines.

Now, an additional study, completed in Germany, indicates that low magnesium levels are associated with thickening of the left ventricle of the heart which can lead to cardiac dysfunction and death.

In addition, low levels of magnesium lead to increases in all-cause mortality, not just heart related deaths.

It was found that all-cause mortality was 7 times higher in the low magnesium group and cardiovascular mortality was almost 2.5 times higher than in the higher magnesium group.

Seeds, nuts, halibut, cooked spinach, milk products, fruits, and leafy vegetables are just a few good sources of magnesium.

In addition a good multi-vitamin that contains at least 350 mg of magnesium would help to prevent any dietary deficiencies.
