The REAL Reason You’re Diabetic (You Won’t Believe It)
Ask most doctors why you’re diabetic, and they’ll give you the same mumbo-jumbo they’ve been handing out for years.
They’ll tell you that you’re overweight or that you eat too many carbs.
But what about the people who lose weight… and their blood sugar doesn’t budge?
Or how about the folks who are diagnosed with diabetes…even though they’ve never been overweight a day in their lives?
Clearly, there’s a lot more to the puzzle. And researchers may have just discovered a major piece.
Because it turns out that a simple mineral deficiency could be what’s REALLY causing your diabetes.
And once you fix it, you may see your lowest blood sugar readings in years.
I’m talking about the mineral magnesium.
And for ages we’ve known that it can help fight everything from depression to heart disease.
Now studies are showing its critical connection to type 2 diabetes.
Magnesium deficiency is already associated with insulin resistance – and, of course, we know that insulin resistance eventually leads to type 2 diabetes.
For this latest study, the researchers wanted to know whether getting enough magnesium would ultimately reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.
The short answer? Yes!
The researchers tracked over 42,000 people for 28 years. Every four years, the participants completed a food questionnaire.
It turns out that the people who had the highest magnesium intake had a 15 percent lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
That’s great news, but here’s where it really gets interesting.
Even in the people who ate more starchy, high-sugar foods – the types of food that increase the risk of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes – higher magnesium intake STILL helped protect against type 2 diabetes.
In other words, if you’re not going to cut the bad foods out, at least make sure you’re adding in some of the good ones.
The best food sources of magnesium include spinach, Swiss chard, beans, nuts, and avocados.
Unfortunately, food sources aren’t as rich in magnesium as they once were because our overworked soils have become dangerously nutrient-deficient. This means that in order to get the recommended 400 mg per day – and plenty of protection against type 2 diabetes – you need to consider dietary supplements as well.
I recommend taking either magnesium glycinate or magnesium threonate because they are more easily absorbed by the body than other magnesium supplements.
To a brighter day,
