Magnesium... helps control blood sugar levels
When we ingest food, it passes through our stomach and intestine - taking on the journey to be converted into glucose and ultimately energy. As this happens our blood sugar levels increase, and if our body is healthy and perfectly functioning, the pancreas then secretes insulin which helps cells absorb the new "fuel" - resulting in blood sugar levels to decrease again.
Low levels of magnesium can impact your cell's ability to use insulin properly, and has been linked to 'insulin resistance' - which is generally associated to type 2 diabetics.
Elevating your intake of magnesium can therefore help stabilise blood sugar concentration - bringing you body back to LEVEL.
