Magnesium May Improve Metabolic Syndrome

weightMagnesium may improve metabolic syndrome, according to a new study.  Metabolic syndrome is characterized as having high blood sugar, cholesterol, pressure and fat around the waistline.

As we go into the new year, many of you may want to lose weight or just get healthier.  Your magnesium intake may play a crucial role.

The research looked at magnesium intake among those with metabolic syndrome.  They found that magnesium was linked with insulin resistance.

When our insulin isn’t working properly, our blood sugar levels can be elevated.  This in turn leads to the rise of cholesterol and the other conditions associated with metabolic syndrome.

Most of us don’t get enough magnesium from our diet.  We recommend taking some magnesium in supplement form for everybody.
