Magnesium: One of the Most Important Nutrients for Heart Health

Without magnesium the heart muscle cannot hold potassium, resulting in palpitations and increased heart attack risk.

Take both magnesium and potassium citrate.

The best form of magnesium and potassium for the heart (but expensive) is magnesium and potassium orotate, but potassium and magnesium citrate will work as well.

(Take no supplement that contains artificial sweeteners in any form (Aspartame, NutraSweet)).

If you additionally take bromelain 500 mg (daily) your heart will be very happy.

Magnesium — One of the Most Important Nutrients for Heart Health:

Story at-a-glance

  • Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in your body and is involved in more than 600 different biochemical reactions. Research suggests even subclinical deficiency can jeopardize your heart health
  • A lack of magnesium will impede your cellular metabolic function and deteriorate mitochondrial function, and magnesium deficiency has been identified as the greatest predictor of heart disease
  • Magnesium is also important for chromosome folding, which allows cells to divide, multiply and regenerate to make up for lost or damaged cells
  • Check your RBC magnesium level and track signs and symptoms of magnesium insufficiency to determine how much magnesium you need. Low potassium and calcium are also common laboratory signs indicating magnesium deficiency
  • To optimize your magnesium level, eat magnesium-rich foods and/or take a magnesium supplement. Taking Epsom salt baths is another effective way to boost your magnesium level

By Dr. Mercola

Magnesium deficiency is extremely common, and recent research shows even subclinical deficiency can jeopardize your heart health. Magnesium is also important for brain health, detoxification, cellular health and function, and the optimization of your mitochondria. In short, magnesium has enormous potential to influence your health and general well-being, especially the prevention of heart disease and cancer, but also for general energy and athletic performance.

Food Industry Wages War On Your Cells With These 10 Toxic Ingredients

The food industry is waging war on your cells with these 10 toxic ingredients (Natural News, April 22, 2012):

Preservatives and synthetic food agents found in foods inhibit oxygen and delay the development of fungus and mold, creating a longer shelf-life for products. But after being consumed, these toxins deprive human cells of oxygen and rob them of nutrients, thus leading to cell mutation and the perfect breeding ground for cancer.

Just like humans, cells need oxygen to survive and thrive. “Fungus fighting” preservatives and man-made food agents choke out your body’s nutrients at the DNA level by depriving mitochondrial cells of oxygen, sometimes completely shutting them down. And if the body does not have enough essential nutrients, it becomes more susceptible to disease.

Longer shelf life, shorter human life

If you’re not a label-reader already, you better become one soon. You don’t have to be a chemist or a linguist either, just be able to sight read and spot the poisons so you can live cancer-free. Most food toxins are followed by a phrase, often in parenthesis, to make them sound “safe” and in your best interest, like “as a preservative,” or “for added freshness,” or “to preserve flavor.” These catchy little phrases really mean for the added choking of your cells to aid with cancer development.

Dr. Terry Wahls: ‘Minding My Mitochondria’ – Healing Multiple Sclerosis And Other Diseases (Video)


YouTube Added: 30.11.2011

Description:

Dr. Terry Wahls learned how to properly fuel her body. Using the lessons she learned at the subcellular level, she used diet to cure her MS and get out of her wheelchair.

Additional commentary by Dr. Terry Wahls:

I had only 18 minutes to speak – so I did not cover everything that I discuss in my book MINDING MY MITOCHONDRIA – or that we do in our research protocol. Vitamin D is very important and so is exercise.

Amazon.com: Minding My Mitochondria 2nd Edition: How I overcame secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) and got out of my wheelchair. Price: $38.00

Book description:

Dr. Terry Wahls links micronutrient starvation to the epidemics of chronic disease that are overtaking modern society. She explains the key roles mitochondria play in maintaining a healthy brain and body. Americans are eating so poorly, something we all know to be true, that the majority of Americans are missing key building blocks that are needed for brain cells to be healthy. The result is an epidemic of depression, aggression, multiple sclerosis and early dementia. She then teaches you how to eat for healthy mitochondria, a healthy brain and a healthy body in language that is clear and concise, even for those without a science background. In this book, Dr. Wahls explains basic brain biology in simple terms. She tells us what vitamin, mineral and essential fat building blocks are needed by the mitochondria and other key structures in the brain. Then she explains what foods are good sources for those key nutrients. Over a hundred recipes are provided to help get you started on this new way of eating. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be used to fund research into the benefits of these interventions in others.

A Genuine ‘Elixir of Life’ – Not Only For Mice

Commentary:

If you know superfoods like AFA  and spirulina algae for almost 20 years like I do, then this is no surprise.

2g of AFA algae contains the exact ammount and spectrum of ammino acids that your body needs for one day.

So it should come of no surprise that AFA truly is superfood for the brain and the entire body.

You have to take AFA in the morning. If you take them in the evening you maybe won’t be able to sleep, because you are so energized.

There are many more superfoods.  This is just an example.


A genuine “elixir of life” that can hold death at bay has been discovered by scientists.

The cocktail of amino acids – building blocks of proteins – was found to increase the lifespan of mice by 12 per cent.

Researchers believe it may also benefit humans, especially the elderly or sick.

In laboratory experiments, middle-aged male healthy mice were given drinking water laced with three specific amino acids.

The animals lived significantly longer than other mice fed a normal diet.

Their lifespan range had a midpoint of 869 days compared with 774 days for untreated mice, a difference of 12 per cent.
