Magnesium Has Anti-Inflammatory Benefits

evidence-based Jul 30, 2020

Low magnesium intake is linked to chronic inflammation, which is one of the drivers of aging, obesity and chronic disease.

In one study, children with the lowest blood magnesium levels were found to have the highest levels of the inflammatory marker CRP.

They also had higher blood sugar, insulin and triglyceride levels.

Magnesium supplements can reduce CRP and other markers of inflammation in older adults, overweight people and those with prediabetes.

In the same way, high-magnesium foods — such as fatty fish and dark chocolate — can reduce inflammation.

Summary:
Magnesium has been shown to help fight inflammation. It reduces the inflammatory marker CRP and provides several other benefits.
