Why is magnesium called nature’s channel blocker?
Q: Why is magnesium called nature’s channel blocker?
A: Magnesium is a trace mineral and acts as an antioxidant. It aids in healing free radical damage to the mitochondria, which commonly results in declining function and aging. Magnesium protects the heart by preventing coronary artery spasms and cardiac arrhythmia. It also inhibits the release of thromboxane that makes blood clot more easily. For these reasons it has been called nature’s “calcium channel blocker” in the general sense. If you are on a calcium channel blocker, always consult your physician first before embarking on any self heal program.
