Title: Do you get enough magnesium? Studies suggest type two diabetes risk may fall as magnesium intake increases

Title: Do you get enough magnesium? Studies suggest type two diabetes risk may fall as magnesium intake increases

 

 

 

Would you get enough magnesium in what you eat? Do you realize it could possibly assist in preventing diabetes?

 

 

 

Dr. Ka He of the University of North carolina at Chapel Hill and colleagues have realized that folks who eaten the most magnesium from foods and vitamin supplements were about 50 % as likely to develop diabetes in the next 20 years as people who took at all magnesium.

 

 

 

Within their study, they looked at magnesium intake and diabetes risk in 4,497 women and men aged 18 to 30 years old, none of whom were diabetic at the study's outset. After a 20-year follow-up period, 330 of the subjects developed diabetes.

 

 

 

Individuals with the highest magnesium intake were 47 percent less likely to develop diabetes compared to those with the lowest intakes (average of 100 milligrams of magnesium per 1,000 calories).

 

 

 

They noted, however, that large clinical trials testing the results of magnesium on diabetes risk are essential to discover whether a causal relationship truly exists.

 

 

 

The final results of the study could explain why eating whole grains, that are elevated in magnesium, is connected with lower diabetes risk. Although grains can be a common way to obtain magnesium, there are many other sources of magnesium to think about.

 

 

 

Vegetables such as spinach are fantastic sources because the middle of the chlorophyll molecule (which provides green vegetables their color) contains magnesium. Some legumes (beans and peas), seeds and nuts, and whole, unrefined grains are good sources.

 

 

 

Regular water may also be a source of magnesium, however the amount varies based on the water supply. Water that naturally contains more minerals is identified as "hard."

 

 

 

The proposed factors why an increased intake of magnesium could lower the risk for developing type two diabetes vary, but according to the National Institutes of Health, Magnesium plays an important role in carbohydrate metabolism. It may influence the release and activity of insulin, the hormone that helps control blood glucose (sugar) levels.

 

 

 

The lesson? Increasing magnesium intake may be necessary for improving insulin sensitivity, reducing systemic inflammation, and decreasing diabetes risk.

 

 

 

So you? What are you expecting? Start now to introduce more magnesium rich foods inside your daily diet!
