Magnesium for Insulin Sensitising – Fat Loss Implications

Magnesium for Insulin Sensitising – Fat Loss Implications.

Magnesium Supplementation May Improve Insulin Sensitivity

INSULIN SENSITIVITY, FASTING GLUCOSE, OVERWEIGHT, INSULIN RESISTANT – Magnesium

This placebo-controlled 6 month study on 52 overweight, insulin resistant, subjects revealed that supplementation with magnesium may improve insulin sensitivity. Blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity significantly improved in the magnesium group compared to placebo. This could help reduce chronic levels of insulin that are associated with weight-gain, as well as preventing people becoming overweight and developing type 2 diabetes.

  1. Hey Matt
    Interesting post. How much magnesium was used in the study? Just wondering if the levels in ZMA would suffice or whether you would recommend further magnesium supplementation.

    Cheers in advance.
