Some very impressive research has come out recently regarding two nutrients - taurine and magnesium - and their combined beneficial effects on helping to prevent cardiovascular disease. According to the research reported in the journal Hypertension Research, supplementation with these two nutrients showed in an increase in specific cells known as endothelial progenitor cells, and a decrease in free radicals.
All blood vessels are lined by endothelial cells. The layer is called the endothelium. Endothelial progenitor cells play a vital role in preventing cardiovascular disease and potentially prolonging lifespan, as they are responsible for repairing the damage to the lining of the arteries, damage that can progress to cardiovascular disease. Excess free radicals, when left unchecked, are a factor in the development of cardiovascular disease.
In the study, performed over a two-week period, 125 men (ages 18-25) in good health received either a daily combination of 340 mg of magnesium and 3,000 mg of taurine, or a placebo. Measures of free radical damage showed a decrease over the two-week period for the study subjects receiving the taurine and magnesium combination. Additionally, compared to levels prior to the study, researchers noted that subjects taking the taurine/magnesium combination had a significant increase in endothelial progenitor cell colony-formation numbers. They also showed improved repair functioning by the endothelial progenitor cells.
Head researcher Mayumi Katakawa stated that the findings "indicate that the dietary intake of taurine and magnesium may prolong lifespan by preventing the progression of cardiovascular diseases."
