You want to do what you can to avoid an intracranial aneurysm.
This study investigated the genetic association for intracranial
aneurysm from a genome-wide association study in 79,429 individuals
with 7,495 cases and 71,934 control (Larsson SC, Gill D, 2021).

The results showed higher genetically predicted serum magnesium
concentrations were associated with lower risk of intracranial


The researchers concluded that this study provides evidence to support
that increased serum magnesium concentrations reduce the risk of
intracranial aneurysm and associated hemorrhage.

When taking magnesium use a form of magnesium that is well
absorbed and not irritating to the gastrointestinal tract.

As an example, magnesium oxide is not well absorbed and can cause
gastrointestinal irritation.
