Magnesium for Diabetes
Blood sugar regulation and management is important so that we don't develop metabolic imbalances which can potentially damage our health and lead to weight gain and Type 2 Diabetes.
The three main ways Magnesium assists with blood sugar management are:
1. Magnesium encourages the uptake of sugar into the cells for the production of energy
2. Magnesium plays a role in activating insulin sensing proteins which improves the cells sensitivity to insulin
3. Magnesium can lower fasting insulin levels and Magnesium deficiency is linked to higher insulin levels and insulin resistance
