One of the most important minerals is one that most of us arenât paying attention to â and around half of the population is lacking. Magnesium is key for heart health, sleep, and keeping stress at bay and muscles healthy. Yet a raft of studies point out that we arenât getting enough of it, and this may cause insomnia, anxiety, and high blood pressure. âSo many patients and doctors are unaware that a deficiency in a simple mineral can lead to so many problems,â says Dr. Dennis Goodman, Clinical Assoc. Professor of Cardiology at NYU, Director of Integrative Medicine at the New York Medical Associates,Â and author of the book, âMagnificent Magnesium.â âSome of these, like muscle cramps, are nuisances, but others are major â weâre talking diabetes, obesity, heart attacks, and strokes.â
