Hypertension is a complex and multifactorial disease and is associated with increased peripheral vascular resistance due to changes in vascular structure and function. The functional changes include increased contraction and/or decreased relaxation responses resulting in increased vascular tone [1, 2]. Magnesium is one of the important physiological regulators of blood vessel tone and it has been found that low magnesium levels are associated with hypertension. Low magnesium status has been suggested [...]
