Magnesium Can Reduce Your Risk of Heart Disease by 25 Percent or More

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - January 21, 2014) - By the time you've finished reading this release; two more people in the U.S. will have died of heart disease. On average, it kills 800,000 Americans each year, or about one every 39 seconds.

In his just released book, Magnificent Magnesium, Dennis Goodman, M.D. develops a thoroughly documented argument showing the link between magnesium deficiency and heart disease. He goes on to reveal that 80 percent of Americans are magnesium deficient and explains why. And he tells what must happen, both in the medical community as well as our personal lives, if we are to beat the odds of death by heart disease.

Dr. Goodman's new book reveals such life-saving insights as:
