The study included 2,245 middle-aged men, who were clinically followed for twenty years. The researchers analyzed their data and found that men with a higher level of magnesium were 44% less likely to have bone fractures. Moreover, over the period of 20 years of study, none of the 22 men with very high levels of magnesium had a bone fracture.

Dr. Kunutsor believes: “The findings do suggest that avoiding low serum concentrations of magnesium may be a promising though unproven strategy for risk prevention of fractures.”
