These are just several of the nuggets I gleaned from The Magnesum Factor. Well written, in language the average reader can understand (that would be me!), and very well-researched with great tables, graphs, quizzes and footnotes, this is one of the best health/medical books I've ever read. Certainly worth your while to delve into.
As mentioned, the book was personally beneficial for me. I found out diuretics can deplete magnesium (and potassium, which I had been supplementing)... I was taking prescribed diuretics for my high BP. A magnesium shortage might be causing the restlessness and rapid heart beat that kept me from sleep. This proved the case. Since I started supplementing with magnesium, as recommended, my acute insomnia is clearing up. I'm very grateful to have normal sleep restored.
Both books are great resources on magnesium but there are some very important differences between them:
"The Magnesium Factor" spends a lot of time discussing the results and debating the conclusions of magnesium research. It also goes into great detail about the biochemical processes that are involved in various magnesium-dependent reactions in the body. While this is important data, it may be overkill for the average reader. In my opinion, this book would be better suited to health professionals or those with scientific backgrounds who need and/or want more detailed information.
"The Magnesium Miracle" by Carolyn Dean provides the pertinent research and biochemical information in a concise and easily readable format that would likely be more accessible to the layperson. This is the book I would recommend to family and friends.
