The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition recently, (March 2013) reported on research from the Netherlands showing an association between higher urinary magnesium levels and a lower risk of ischemic heart disease.

Nearly 8,000 men and women were a part of the prevention study, referred to as the PREVEND study. The study evaluated the prevalence of albuminurea and renal and cardiovascular disease. After baseline urinary magnesium excretion levels were obtained, participants were followed for a median of 10.5 years.

Researchers concluded, those with evidence of magnesium sufficiency were significantly less likely to suffer from Coronary Heart Disease (CHD).
