This supplement protects your heart better than statins, but with no side effects

While the dust is settling over the new day for statins, there’s an easier and much safer way to take care of your heart.

In a new study, some big brains at Harvard crunched the results of several magnesium studies.

Here’s what they found…

Just 250 mg of magnesium daily cuts your risk of fatal ischemic heart disease by nearly 30 percent.

And even a modest boost of your blood level of magnesium dramatically reduces cardiovascular disease risk.

Unlike statins, no side effects have been linked to magnesium use. Well…unless you count “reduced cancer risk” and “better blood sugar control” as side effects.
