Magnesium For Diabetics
Do you know how important magnesium is for our bodily functions, let alone our continuing daily health? Magnesium for diabetics should be a “no brainer” for you. However, you could only know this with proper education about essential vitamins and supplements for type 2 diabetes and blood sugar control.
Research is now available online about how magnesium for diabetics is so essential; that magnesium is one of the top four most abundant minerals found in the human body.
Researchers and scientists, etc., have found that on proteins found in our bodies, that there are over 3,700 places for magnesium to bind. That is a very large number of binding sites for magnesium and this also shows us how important magnesium for diabetics can be, let alone a person with no health concerns.
There are also more than 300 enzymes in our bodies that rely on magnesium to function properly. Again, this shows exactly how important magnesium is for our bodies.
magnesium for diabetics; how much do we need to take on a daily basis?
The safest dose for any adult will be 350 mg or less in a single day. However you should discuss this with your doctor, especially if you are type 2 diabetic. Normally the people who work in a store that specializes in vitamins, minerals, and supplements, should be able to help you if you cannot determine how much of what is in any certain product.
Some people who are more experienced with the vitamins and minerals that they are taking; they like to take their calcium and magnesium in a single capsule. I would not recommend purchasing these products on your own without a specialist helping you determine what is a good fit for you. Determining the proper dosage when mixing magnesium for diabetics is extremely important.
Even though most products are marked with the exact dosage, if it is mixed with another vitamin or mineral in the same capsule, you may need to take more than one capsule to get the proper dosage. This is why I like to purchase my vitamins and minerals separately; not mixed together. This way I know exactly what I am taking.
can you overdose of magnesium?
Yes. ANYTHING OVER 350 MG IS TOO MUCH AND POSSIBLY UNSAFE.
If taking amounts over 350 mg, overdose can occur. The side effects of magnesium overdose could show up as: irregular heartbeat, low blood pressure, slowed breathing, confusion, and even coma or death.
It is essential to take the daily recommended dose to avoid a build up of magnesium. All of these side effects are very serious. But then so are the side effects of low magnesium for diabetics.
effects of low magnesium
The impact that magnesium has on biochemical processing that happens within our bodies can be seen as:
- The relaxation of our blood vessels. Imagine if our blood vessels were to become hardened.
- Our muscles and nerve functions which also include the heart muscle. What would happen if we lost nerve function or basic muscle use? I cannot imagine a life with the use of our muscles or our nerve function.
- Helps to create ATP (which is adenosine triphosphate); this is the energy in your body. What would we do without energy? Lie around and die?
- The proper forming of teeth and bones. We all know what it would be like not to have properly formed bones or teeth? Devastating. I always thought that this was done with calcium but apparently too much calcium can also be devastating.
- The most important for us diabetics? Magnesium for diabetics; it is responsible for regulation of our blood sugar and insulin sensitivity. We know that this is crucial for preventing type 2 diabetes.
study of magnesium for diabetics
There was a specific study done on prediabetics. What they found was that those prediabetics who had higher levels of magnesium or were obviously taking a supplement of magnesium, had greatly reduced their risk for blood sugar and metabolic problems by a whopping 71%!
If I had been given this information as a prediabetic, I would have been supplementing with magnesium. But we have to ask ourselves, why don’t doctors tell us this information? What are they afraid of? Big Pharma?
Type 2 diabetes can be cured with proper diet (nutrition including vitamins and minerals that our diets are lacking today), physical movement or exercise, and proper rest and sleeping patterns. If I know this kind of information and I am just the patient, then most doctors have to know this information but what are they afraid of? Could it be that Big Pharma is coming down on them? Do you realize that diabetes alone is a multi billion dollar industry for Big Pharma? What would happen if all type 2 diabetics were healed today?
My nephew was reading an article to me off of his cell phone, and the basics of what it was saying was that a doctor had proclaimed that he believed he now had the solution or actual cure for cancer; later his body was found dead from mysterious, unknown reasons. These are the kinds of things that make me go “hmmm”.
The lack of magnesium can trigger serious health problems. Cellular metabolic function can deteriorate if you lack cellular magnesium. With the deterioration of cellular metabolic function, even more serious health problems can occur.
It would be like a snowball, rolling downhill; one serious health problem leading to the yet another illness, health problem, or disease and maybe even a death.
Some health problems will show up as migraine headaches, anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, and cardiovascular disease. But then beyond those health problems, more final deteriorations can occur and then a sudden cardiac death. But we could see that this can be the cause of all kinds of death.
detoxification; minimize toxic exposure
Magnesium is extremely important for any detoxification processes. This includes minimizing any damage from exposure to toxic substances.
Magnesium for diabetics actually plays a vital role in the optimization of our mitochondria, which has a huge influence on our health; especially in controlling our blood sugar, preventing cancers, assisting us with basic energy and even more so by aiding us in our athletic abilities.
I had not taken a specific magnesium until I began studying about magnesium for diabetics, and other special vitamins and minerals, which I will post about later. There are several vitamins, minerals, and supplements that I will tell you about and each of their specific benefit for aiding us as we heal ourselves from type 2 diabetes.
that’s it, that’s all for today folks!
I hope that you have found this post about magnesium for diabetics helpful today. If you have any comments or have had any experience, especially with a lack of magnesium; I hope that you will share it below.
Thanks again for stopping by.
