Magnesium can save 180,000 American lives
Study Title: "Serum magnesium and risk of sudden cardiac death in the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study."
Number of Participants: 264 cases in follow-up
Length of Study: 12 Years
Type of Study: Follow-up Analysis of a Prospective Cohort Study
Publication: American Heart Journal
Study Result: Individuals in the top 25% of blood levels of magnesium had an almost 40% reduction in the risk of sudden cardiac death.

In a follow-up of the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study, 264 patients were observed for an average of 12 years to evaluate the association of magnesium deficiency with risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD). Those individuals within the top 25% of blood levels of magnesium had an almost 40% reduction in the risk of sudden cardiac death. Given that an analysis of mortality data found that there was 456,076 sudden cardiac death in the United States in 1998, a 40% reduction in risk would amount to more than 180,000 lives saved in the United States.
