1. Inflammation levels slashed with magnesium

    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.

  2. Inflammation-fighting superfoods named by new study

    How to beat killer inflammation

    It's the killer hiding in plain sight.

    Inflammation can cause some seriously killer pain -- but when inflammation is doing its worst, it can kill you for real.

    And you won't feel a thing!

    Inflammation plays a key role in heart disease, dementia, mood disorders, and even many cancers -- and if you're getting up there in years, you're almost certainly battling at least SOME level of inflammation.

    I'm here to help you win the battle AND the war -- because I'm about to share with you the latest research that gives you some of the best weapons for fighting inflammation.

    And I guarantee you're going to like some of them... and you're going to absolutely LOVE one in particular.

    The new study focuses on how certain foods can control cytokines, or cells that help trigger the inflammation response. While fruit and vegetables in general are rich in inflammation-fighting compounds, a few stand head and shoulders above the rest.

    Onions, turmeric, red grapes, green tea, and açai berries all contain polyphenols that can help regulate cytokines and, in turn, slash your levels disease-causing chronic inflammation.

    Of course it's always best to get as many of your nutrients as you can from food, and those are all great things to include in your diet.

    But sometimes, it's not enough -- either the food sources are scarce, or you've just reached a point in life where you need a whole lot more than what you can get from an onion or some grapes.

    So you should also look for a supplement blend that contains these terrific polyphenolic compounds that, according to the study, will help fight off inflammation: isorhamnetin, resveratrol, curcumin, and vanillic acid.

    OK, I did promise one inflammation-fighter that you'll love and here it is: chocolate.

    The new study didn't focus on cocoa or chocolate, but we know from earlier research that it's one of the best sources of dietary polyphenols around.

    Just 3.5 ounces of delicious dark chocolate contains 1,664 mg of total polyphenols and 1,860 mg of antioxidants.

    The key, of course, is self-control. If you can trust yourself to have a square or two of a quality dark chocolate per day, then feel free to add it to your diet.

    If you can't open a package of chocolate without finishing the whole thing, then it's best to get your polyphenols from other sources.
