Magnesium is an essential mineral which activates and regulates digestive enzymes, as well as produces and transports energy during digestion. It also regulates blood pressure, keeps a steady heart rhythm and maintains strong bones. In addition, magnesium is responsible for regulating the secretion of insulin and maintaining overall blood sugar levels. Studies have shown that taking magnesium supplements for those with diabetes or pre-diabetes have helped to reduce their fasting blood sugar levels. Our own Sucra+ contains magnesium, along with many other essential vitamins, minerals and herbs, which all contribute to more regular glucose levels for those with symptoms of an imbalance.
Keep your energy levels up, and your body functioning properly with a magnesium-rich diet by eating the following foods on a regular basis: whole wheat, ancient grains (like quinoa), dark leafy greens (like spinach), beans, nuts, seeds, and tofu.
