Diabetes and Magnesium

People with adult Type 2 Diabetes are often lacking in the mineral magnesium. This is significant because magnesium helps to control blood sugar levels.

Magnesium is so important in our body because it’s necessary in over 300 different metabolic pathways. Strong bones, nerve and muscle function all require magnesium.

Published research on patients with diabetes showed magnesium supplements both helped insulin sensitivity, and lowered fasting glucose levels.1 That’s a double benefit for diabetes!

However, not all magnesium supplements are effective. It’s all about quality and quantity with nutritional supplements. This is for your health so get high quality treatments. The form of magnesium makes a big difference in how well it gets absorbed and used by our body.
