Magnesium Reduced Peripheral Artery Disease

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) narrows arteries distant from the heart; most often affecting the legs, but also the arms and gut. In this large study, the first of its kind, doctors followed 13,826 adults for an average of 24 years, screening each for circulating magnesium levels every three years. Participants began the study without PAD.

Overall, those whose magnesium levels were no higher than 1.4 milliequivalents per liter of blood (mEq/L) were 38 percent more likely to have developed peripheral artery disease (PAD) over the study period compared to those whose magnesium levels were at least 1.8 mEq/L.

To isolate the health effects of magnesium, doctors adjusted for other factors that raise chances for PAD, including smoking, diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure, and still found an independent link between peripheral artery disease (PAD) and low magnesium levels in both men and women.

This is one of several reasons why the amount of magnesium in Willvite  was increased, and the amount of calcium was decreased. Willvite  is unique in that, at the full dosage, it provides proper levels of both vitamins and minerals, all in one product. It is available in a regular form, with iron, and in an iron-free version.
