Magnesium Lower Blood Pressure

British investigator Lindsy Kass and associates did a meta-analysis (study of studies) on the use of magnesium in doses greater than 370 mg a day to treat hypertension. Magnesium was effective in lowering BP by 3-4 mg. The higher the dose the greater the effect. However, if you take too high a dose, you can get diarrhea. Magnesium might not be enough of a treatment by itself, but as an adjunct, it might be very helpful. See Lindsy Kass at the University of Hertfordshire in the UK, reported in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition and in Holistic Primary Care, summer, 2012, p. 10. www.healthcelebration.com
