Over the past several years there have been many significant studies about magnesium’s role in keeping your metabolism running like a well-oiled clock—specifically in terms of insulin sensitivity, glucose regulation, and protection from type 2 diabetes.
In a 2013 study in The Journal of Nutrition, researchers looked at over 52,000 people with no known history of diabetes to see how magnesium affected blood sugar. What they discovered was simple: a higher intake of magnesium resulted in lower fasting blood sugar and lower fasting insulin levels.
This is great news for people who are looking to lose weight or get lean. If you’re having trouble with that last bit of fat or just getting started with your weight loss the most important thing you need to know is that low insulin is to your benefit. When your insulin levels go up, even a little bit, it dramatically curbs the utilization of fat for fuel. Anything that brings down your insulin a little, especially your fasting insulin as is the case with magnesium, will be a major benefit to you. So, even while you sleep magnesium will help ensure more stable blood sugar and a better balance of fuel utilization.
Last week Dr. Dean presented her new program to control weight and physical conditions that could lead to diabetes, stroke, and heart disease. Dr. Dean’s three-tier approach combines a high fat, moderate protein, low carb meal plan with the Total Body ReSet and intermittent fasting. This powerful trifecta of strategies creates amazing outcomes for the physical body! The blood sugar lowering and stabilizing effect of magnesium will not only help a person fasting to realize a better long-term balance in their blood sugar, but also more energy when it comes time to be active. The reduced blood sugar will likely spare your glycogen stores for when you really need them, creating a preference for fat as a source of fuel. And, feeding your body fats and moderate proteins, versus carbs, will improve your body’s fat burning capacity as well.
Tonight on our internet based radio show, we’ll be talking with Dr. Carolyn Dean about Magnesium, Glucose, and Insulin as well as a wide-range of other health topics and safe solutions. You will love hearing the beneficial interactions with our callers and hosts alike including the body/mind connection, identifying the ‘conflict’ in the ‘conflict basis’ of disease and much more!!
SO…be sure join us this evening for another wonderful, information-packed broadcast. If you yourself are unable to make the show, you have the option to email me [Ginney] and have your question or comment included in our MailBag Segment that is featured in Hour Two. Remember, the valuable information, suggestions, and insights about your health choices can always be discussed with your doctor, should you choose to do so.
