[MOL] Magnesium supplementation lowers blood pressure

Magnesium supplementation lowers blood pressure

WESTPORT, Aug 21 (Reuters) -- Magnesium supplements may stimulate

small but significant reductions in blood pressure, according to

a report in the August issue of Hypertension.  Dr.  Yuhei Kawano

and others, at the National Cardiovascular Center in Osaka,

Japan, conducted a prospective, crossover study of the office and

ambulatory blood pressures of 60 patients, aged 33-74 years, with

treated or untreated essential hypertension.  All subjects

received 20 mmol/day of magnesium or placebo for 8-week periods.
