Solo Nutrition Magnesium Citrateworks with calcium to maintain healthy bone density, nerve and muscle impulses. The average UK diet is relatively high in calcium but deficient in magnesium. This is because milk is not as good a source of magnesium as calcium is. Both calcium and magnesium are present in green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds.
Low levels of magnesium can lead to cardiovascular disease. People suffering from cardiovascular disease are often found to have low levels of magnesium in their heart. Low levels of magnesium can cause the heart muscles to go into spasms. There is evidence to suggest that some heart attacks are not caused by obstructions, but by cramping.
