Magnesium Glycinate

Could magnesium deficiency give you diabetes?

Magnesium is the 4th most abundant mineral in the entire body, and it works as a helper nutrient in certain enzyme reactions. It is involved in over 300 chemical reactions, including its effect on insulin, and is involved in glucose metabolism.

People with diabetes have been significantly found to have lower magnesium than healthy people. When you are deficient in magnesium, you worsen insulin resistance, and when you take magnesium, it will improve insulin resistance that allows for better blood sugar control and all other effects that insulin is supposed to have.

The recommended amount of magnesium you need for a day is 400-420 mg (for male bodies) and for females, it is around 300. Magnesium works with calcium for the contraction and relaxation of the muscles.
