Magnesium deficiency is considered the new epidemic. Improving our magnesium levels will lower our risk for Type 2 Diabetes even if you are still eating a poor diet. Amazing!
Collaborators from Tufts University, Harvard University, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, investigated the impact of magnesium intake, from both dietary and supplemental sources, on the risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. There were over 200,000 participants in the study and they all ate unhealthy carbs (simple carbohydrates), a high glycemic index food diet and low fiber as well.
Major study findings included:
- Over the 28 years of the study – 8.4% of participants developed Type 2 diabetes.
- Increased magnesium glycinate or bis-glycinate intake (390-470 mg/day) was associated with a 15% lower risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes compared to lower magnesium intake(229-280 mg/day)
- Risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes was reduced by 4% with each additional 50 mg/day of magnesium glycinate or bis-glycinate intake
Conclusion – even if you are not having a proper diet, magnesium glycinate or bis-glycinate supplementation can lower your risk for developing Type 2 Diabetes
Of course, avoiding a poor carb quality, high glycemic and low fiber diet will greatly increase your benefit too. This type of diet on its own can make your body excrete more magnesium. But, this study confirms the importance of this crucial mineral.
It is important to note that in the study the participants were taking magnesium glycinate or bis-glycinate. This is the well absorbed magnesium. The study was not with citrate or with oxide. Wise Magnesium Absorb has gone through rigorous testing to verify how well it is absorbed. It is one of the best ones in the market. Here read more on this amazing product.
