Can a Simple Mineral Beat Statins for the Heart?

There are times when it seems like the only answer in medicine is another drug.  For heart stuff this is unquestionably statins.
Have high cholesterol?  Take Lipitor.  Have a family history of heart disease?  Take Crestor.  Your dog’s litter mates’ cousins’ owner had a heart attack?  Take atorvastatin.
You get the idea.
But when it comes to natural approaches which are JUST as powerful without a long list of potentially fatal side effects, it seems like “we just need more research.”
In this particular study, we see a simple approach…those with the highest levels of magnesium in their bloodstream had a 40% reduced risk of suffering sudden cardiac death.
At a cost that is just a fraction of even a generic statin and no side effects when taken orally.
