However, recent studies suggest that it’s actually the arterial calcification responsible for aortic stiffening unlike what we all though previously. As a matter of fact, vascular calcification is now considered to be regulated by the osteochondrogenic differentiation of vascular cells.
How do potassium and magnesium affect our vascular health?
The National Academy of Sciences recently examined the role of different nutrients such as magnesium on our vascular health and discovered that lack of the mineral can raise the levels of intracellular calcium. Magnesium is a highly important mineral for our bones and heart, and lack of it can lead to high blood pressure, diabetes, muscle cramps and cerebral vasospasms. Scientists have known for a long time that magnesium deficiency can reduce muscle contraction and harm our bones, which means that we must keep the levels of this important mineral intact.
The main symptoms of magnesium deficiency are abnormal heart rhythm, fatigue, eye twitches, muscle cramps and muscle pain, and some studies suggest that lack of the mineral can lead to osteoporosis and asthma as well.
The effects of bananas on our vascular health
Bananas have a rich nutritional profile which includes potassium and magnesium as well as other important nutrients. They can regulate our blood sugar levels and are great for people suffering from insulin resistance. Furthermore, the high amount of potassium found in bananas can regulate your blood pressure and prevent a variety of cardiovascular problems as well.
