Did you know that nearly 65% of Americans are considered to have inadequate magnesium intake on a daily basis? This is incredibly problematic when we look at all of the functions of this very important mineral in the human body. If we’re not getting adequate exposure, then it certainly makes sense that we would want to be supplementing with magnesium. Today I want to talk about magnesium when it comes to cardiovascular health and why this is so important.†

Are you lacking magnesium?

When it comes to magnesium deficiencies and insufficiencies, we recognize that this is a major problem. Researchers have found a strong correlation between low magnesium levels and the risk of cardiovascular events.†

Magnesium is responsible for over 300 different enzymatic processes within the human body. We know that this mineral is playing an integral role in our day-to-day functioning.† 

As we get older, we can start to see less and less intake coming from the diet, but also in terms of absorption rate. This is a problem because, as we age, we are at a greater risk for a cardiovascular event.†

Blood pressure and cardiovascular health

Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is the most prevalent risk factor when it comes to heart disease. We recognize that this is a massive problem here in the United States. The American Heart Association estimates that over 40% of Americans will have high blood pressure in the next 10 years. That means that they will be on medication for high blood pressure within the next 10 years. That is very alarming.†

We have to look at how magnesium can play a role into blood pressure levels. When we think about vasodilation and the blood vessels themselves being more relaxed to allow for adequate blood flow, this is very critical to your magnesium status. If we have low magnesium, this is going to create a situation where we’re going to end up with more vasoconstriction. This is because this mineral is a cofactor for hundreds of reactions that occur throughout the body.†

Since we know that low magnesium is an incredibly problematic thing for the body, what can we do? Dietary intake or exposure to magnesium is generally lacking, which is why it is so important to supplement with this mineral. Making sure that we are getting adequate magnesium every single day is critical to our overall wellness.†   

At InViteⓇ Health, we offer our Magnesium Glycinate, as well as our Magnesium Citrate. We’re not changing the magnesium, but what we’re doing is we’re changing how it’s brought into the system. When it’s bound to citrate, the absorption rate is just a hair greater than when it’s bound to glycinate. This is very good when we think about intestinal health and for people who have a tendency to experience bouts of constipation. When we think about overall cardiovascular support, I would tend to lean more towards the glycinated form. Since this has a slightly lower absorption rate, the body is able to utilize the magnesium in the bloodstream for full action throughout the day.†

In this episode, Amanda Williams, MPH explains why the mineral magnesium is so important for overall wellness, especially in terms of heart and blood pressure health. She details research on this important nutrient and explains the difference between the glycinate and citrate forms.†

Sometimes we overlook the importance of energy in the body. We forget that if we are lacking energy, we are going to start having some missteps or misfirings occur. Many times, we don’t even recognize the true impact that low energy states can have on our overall health and wellness. Today, I want to talk about one particular type of energy in the body and why it’s important to maintain this, especially when we look at cardiovascular health, skeletal muscle health and fatigue.†

Factors that impact energy levels

As we get older, our cellular energy levels begin to decline. We frequently talk about this in the setting of Coenzyme Q10 because even though it’s made in the body, age and certain medications can block the proper manufacturing of this important nutrient. This can cause you to feel more fatigued or tired, which is an indication that our cells are not functioning at their optimal performance.†

There is something in the body that plays a really critical role in maintaining and restoring energy levels and that is ribose. D-ribose has been shown to increase cellular energy production within the heart and skeletal muscles. If we do not have adequate D-ribose, then we’re going to have a hard time in terms of energy recovery, as well as muscle recovery.† 

What is ribose?

Ribose is something that is naturally-occurring within our system. It is an essential component to our cellular energy management. It also yields the ability to fend off oxidative stress because it plays a role as an antioxidant. In this role, it can help to ease inflammation.†

Supplementation with D-ribose is a very good choice for those who are dealing with cardiac issues. Ribose works in the production of ATP, as well as in helping to fend off oxidative stress within the heart itself. It is free radical damage that causes an inflammatory response within the heart. If we have adequate levels of ribose, then we know that the cells themselves are being protected from oxidative stress. Ribose can be found in our Ribose Complex, which is a great formulation.† 

In this episode, Amanda Williams, MPH discusses the powerful nutrient ribose. She details how ribose helps support heart health and energy levels and explains how it also acts as an antioxidant.†

Key Topics:

  • Factors that can impact energy levels
  • How ribose plays a role in the genes
  • The relationship between ribose and major issues within the body
  • Studies on the power of ribose
