Magnesium supplementation prevents the development of alcohol-induced hypertension

Abstract:
The effect of chronic alcohol administration on blood pressure was investigated in 7-week-old Wistar rats. Tail-cuff blood pressure was significantly higher in rats who received 15% ethanol in drinking water than in control rats. Intracellular free calcium concentration of lymphocytes was increased, while magnesium concentration of erythrocyte, aorta, and skeletal muscle and erythrocyte ouabain-sensitive […]

As a result of this loss, serum magnesium tends to decrease while urinary magnesium excretion increases 2-3 fold. Experimental data confirm that chronic consumption of 6% ethanol in the Lieber De-Carli diet for 3 weeks […]

Effects of magnesium deficiency–more than skin deep

Abstract:
Dead Sea and magnesium salt therapy are two of the oldest forms of treatment for skin disease and several other disorders, supported by a body of largely anecdotal evidence. In this paper we review possible pathways for penetration of magnesium ions through the epidermis to reach the circulation, in turn replenishing cellular magnesium levels. […]
