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.
