In a study published in the National Library of Medicine, the effect of magnesium supplementation on insulin resistance was analysed.
The study noted: “Recent studies have demonstrated that minerals play a role in glucose metabolism disorders in humans.
“Magnesium, in particular, is an extensively studied mineral that has been shown to function in the management of hyperglycaemia, hyperinsulinemia, and insulin resistance (IR) action.
“The results of eight clinical trials showed that supplementation with magnesium influences serum fasting glucose concentrations, and five trials determined an effect on fasting insulin levels.
“The results of seven studies demonstrated that mineral supplementation reduced homeostasis model assessment for IR values.”
