Anyone in A-Fib is Almost Certainly Magnesium Deficient
Why? Magnesium used to be plentiful in fruits, vegetable and grains, but decades of industrial-scale farming have stripped the soil of minerals like magnesium.
One study found that the nutrient content of crops has declined by as much as 40% since the 1950s. “It’s now is almost impossible to get adequate amounts of magnesium from food.”
At least 80% of Americans are deficient in magnesium consuming only about 270 mg of magnesium a day. While the Recommended Daily Allowance is 420 mg for adult males and 320 mg for adult females. (The RDAs is the minimum amount for a healthy person, not the recommended amount.)
Anyone in A-Fib is almost certainly magnesium deficient with a substantial cumulative deficiency over months and years.
