Reduce Your Risk of Stroke by Getting More of This
A new review of seven previous studies has shown that magnesium intake may be an important indicator in your risk of having a stroke. Researchers reviewed those studies and found that risk of ischemic stroke (when an artery to the brain is blocked) was a significant 9% lower for each 100 milligrams of magnesium that the studies’ 240,000 participa...nts reported consuming each day.
The key is including more magnesium-rich foods in your diet, not simply adding a multivitamin to your daily routine. Even though more research is needed, eating more leafy greens, beans, seafood, nuts and whole grains to your diet is worth it to help boost your overall health and wellness. The recommended daily allowance for magnesium is 320 mg for women and 420 for men.
