The best $1 you’ll ever spend on your health

It's the disease-beating miracle the world has been looking for -- and it's been hiding in plain sight all along!

You'll find it in just about every pharmacy... every vitamin shop... every supermarket... and online.

And you can pick up your own supply of this medical marvel for about $1 a week.

It's magnesium, and OF COURSE we all know we need the stuff. No one will argue that.

It's an ESSENTIAL mineral, after all.

But a new study goes beyond the usual ho-hum advice about making sure you get your magnesium and reveals exactly what happens when you spend that buck a week on popping a supplement.

And it's stunning, because this one isn't about any single disease or condition. Instead, the new study shows how magnesium might help fight just about all of them at once.

The key is inflammation, and one of the biggest markers of dangerous chronic inflammation in the body is C-reactive protein (CRP).

Even mainstream doctors are starting to realize that CRP is far more important for measuring heart risk than other common markers -- like cholesterol. High CRP will increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, heart disease, peripheral artery disease, and more.

If your CRP is already nice and low, the study finds a little magnesium won't make much difference.

Why would it? It's already right where it needs to be.

But if it's in the "high risk" category of 3 mg/L or more, the study finds that magnesium supplements will slash those levels by an average of 1.12... or enough to bring you right down smack in the middle of the "average risk" category.

High CRP isn't just linked to heart risk. It can also increase your odds of cancer, dementia, and more.

Yet, as the new study shows, all you need to bring it down is a little magnesium.

And that's the catch.

Some 80 percent of Americans, especially older folks, aren't getting anything close to the levels they need for good health.

Odds are, you're one of them.

Even if you have a healthy diet -- even if you eat plenty of magnesium-rich foods -- you could STILL fall short, because soil quality at many farms is now so poor that the plants simply can't pull enough magnesium out of the earth to pass along to you.

So, while you should make an effort to eat plenty of supposedly magnesium-rich foods such as spinach and Swiss chard, it's time to go a step farther.

Take a supplement -- ideally magnesium glycinate, which is gentler on your stomach and more easily absorbed by your body than other forms.

That $1 a week might be the best investment you'll ever make in your health.
