Many of us know that magnesium is good for our bodies and we can’t live without it. What you might not have known is that magnesium could also help prevent cancer!
New studies are finding that magnesium acts as a bridge between killer T cells and cancer cells. T cells are critical to our immune system and seek out and destroy cancerous and infected cells. They can’t do this if they haven’t bound with free magnesium.
When cancer treatments aren’t working properly, it may be in part due to magnesium deficiency. Low levels of magnesium may also be linked to rapid disease progression.
The best source of magnesium is found in nuts, though there are many other sources that can help up your magnesium intake.
