Metabolism and Magnesium
Hormone Regulation, Enzymatic Functions, Glucose Utilization
Magnesium is the Master Mineral when we discuss internal cellular functions and biochemical cofactors.
Magnesium to the body is like: baking a cake with out any flour, or driving a car without any gas or electricity.
Magnesium is the Sun to our Earth.
It is the focal point for energy creation and is involved in 600+ 'known' enzymatic functions.
How the body processes Sodium, Potassium, Calcium, Vitamin D, Glucose is all dependent on the amount of available Magnesium in your body.
Diabetic conditions provide a clear albeit indirect proof of the glucose/Mg2+ relationship. Work by Altura’s group  and more recently by Resnick and Barbagallo [206,207] indicate that cellular Mg2+ content is markedly decreased under type-I and type-II diabetes.
