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.

  1. My friend is a Type 1 diabetic (result of surgically removing Pancreas at age 70 ). How will your Magnesium lotion affect this his insulin needs.

    • Hello, Roberta! I have no way of knowing how he will be specifically impacted – but we can let you know that magnesium is necessary for insulin metabolism. I wish I could say more but it’s totally speculative and unadvised.
