“So that means it is present in our body, it is not a foreign body to us like stainless steel or cobalt chromium for the permanent devices.”

He adds that magnesium also plays an important role in the regrowth of endothelial cells following damage; vascular tone; reducing inflammation; and reducing the incidence of thrombosis (blood-clotting).

Endothelial cells are those lining our blood and lymphatic vessels, and are usually injured during the arteriosclerotic process that leads to the narrowing of arteries, which eventually result in a heart attack when coronary, or heart, arteries are affected.

“Also, we know that magnesium has a good effect on vasodilation,” he says.

“It reduces vascular calcification, which is the ageing effect on our blood vessels, and it also reduces the neointimal formation, which, in particular, we don’t want to see when we put a foreign body into our bodies.”....
