Magnesium's Role

Gregg Carroll - Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Did you know the mineral magnesium plays an important role in insulin activation?

Magnesium is necessary to release and activate the hormone insulin, which aids in maintaining blood sugar levels. Studies show that individuals with type 2 diabetes are often low in body magnesium levels, which may worsen the condition of insulin resistance that usually precedes diabetes. Lack of magnesium is often the reason for unexplained fatigue and exhaustion. Simple dietary choices can help alleviate this state. Rich sources of magnesium include all dark greens, most nuts, lentils, beans and seeds, and other whole grains.
