Personal Gourmet Food Intelligence: Magnesium lowers Risk of Stroke

magnesium-lowers-risk-of-stroke

More than 50% of Canadians don’t get enough Magnesium in their diets which may increase the risk of stokes.  A stroke occurs every 10 minutes in Canada.  Strokes can be caused by high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking,  weight and stress.
The daily amount should be 400 mg but most people only get half of that.
Magnesium helps maintain blood pressure, regulates blood sugar levels which can prevent diabetes type 2 and heart disease and lowers the risk of colon cancer
The best foods include fruits, vegetables and grains and specifically black, kidney, navy and soy beans, chickpeas, firm tofu, spinach, swiss chard, halibut, nuts and yogurt.
Most beans have 150 mg of magnesium per cup.  Nuts have 100 mg per ¼ cup.
An extra 100 mg daily resulted in a 9% reduction in strokes.
