Magnificent Magnesium

          Magnesium is important to our health in multiple ways. It is required for functioning of over 300 enzyme systems, important for efficient energy production in our cells, and for heart health and cognition.
It is involved in the metabolism and activation of other nutrients, including Vit. D.
There is a link between magnesium and Type II diabetes; magnesium helps regulate blood sugar by improving insulin sensitivity. Studies show that magnesium deficiency may be linked to an increased risk for diabetes.
Magnesium-rich foods include leafy greens, nuts, whole grains, avocados, and legumes.
