Magnesium Helps Lower Blood Pressure Naturally

By Keith D. Bishop, Clinical Nutritionist, B.Sc. Pharmacy - May 30, 2009

  • Magnesium supplement lowers high blood pressure naturally in overweight people. 

A double blind, placebo-controlled, randomized trial (the best type of medical study) of 115 overweight participants received magnesium 300 mg per day or placebo for 12 weeks. In those with an elevated blood pressure the magnesium supplement lowered their blood pressure more than the placebo.

The daily magnesium supplement did not lower blood pressure, nor did the supplement cause adverse effects in those with normal or low blood pressure.[1]

Magnesium improves blood vessel compliance and allows the blood vessels to relax and open normally.[2] This is one of several mechanisms in blood pressure control.
