Vegetable may reduce risk of heart disease including diabetes


NEW DELHI: Some people are suffering from heart and diabetes disease nowadays in every country. But there is no need to worry regarding these diseases because researcher has researched the solution of these diseases.

According to study, If you consume luxuriant food as a diet regularly like spices, nuts, beans, cocoa, whole grains and green leafy vegetables, may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, stroke and type-2 diabetes, because magnesium are included in those things.

Researchers from Zhejiang University and Zhengzhou University in China found that people in the highest category of dietary magnesium consumption had a 10% lower risk of coronary heart disease, 12% lower risk of stroke and a 26% lower risk of type-2 diabetes compared to those in the lowest category.

Their results also indicate that an extra 100mg per day of dietary magnesium could also reduce risk of stroke by seven and type-2 diabetes by 19%.

“Low levels of magnesium in the body have been associated with a range of diseases, but no conclusive evidence has been put forward on the link between dietary magnesium and health risks,” said lead study author Dr Fudi Wang from the School of Public Health at Zhejiang University.

This analysis of the evidence on dietary magnesium and health outcomes is the largest to date, involving data from more than one million people across nine countries. The current health guidelines recommend a magnesium intake of around 300mg per day for men and 270mg per day for women.

Despite this, magnesium deficiency is relatively common, affecting between 2.5 %and 15 %of the general population. Our findings will be important for informing the public and policy makers on dietary guidelines to reduce magnesium deficiency related health risks, Dr Wang explained.

Magnesium is vital for human health and normal biological functions including glucose metabolism, protein production and synthesis of nucleic acids such as DNA.
