Yes the active people are likely to be healthier. Hope the next I posted from WebMD and Harvard Med is useful to some of you.

Low levels of magnesium have been historically overlooked as a main factor for heart disease. .

Use magnesium for diseases of the heart and blood vessels including chest pain, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, high levels of “bad” cholesterol called low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, low levels of “good” cholesterol called high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, heart valve disease (mitral valve prolapse), and heart attack.

Magnesium is also used for treating attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, leg cramps during pregnancy, diabetes, kidney stones, migraine headaches, weak bones (osteoporosis), premenstrual syndrome (PMS), altitude sickness, urinary incontinence, restless leg syndrome, asthma, hayfever, multiple sclerosis, and for preventing hearing loss.

Some people put magnesium on their skin to treat infected skin ulcers, boils, and carbuncles; and to speed up wound healing.

HOWEVER----you don't want to overdose. I found for myself that 250 mgs a day proved in my blood tests it was the correct amount. I take it late in the afternoon with almond milk. Check with your doctor.

I'm near parks, but I have a lot of all that in my yard, which is a backyard habitat for wild animals, birds, butterflies, etc.

I miss nature very much, and I agree with the article.
