What You Should Know Before Using Magnesium for Weight Loss

By    |   Tuesday, 17 May 2016 11:45 AM

More and more diet experts are touting the benefits of magnesium for weight loss, but how effective is this mineral in helping the body lose weight?

Magnesium is an essential mineral for more than 300 processes in the body including heart rhythm, bone health, blood sugar regulation, and blood pressure, according to Shape magazine. Because of the way magnesium helps the body open cells to absorb glucose, it can be helpful in preventing the buildup of both glucose and insulin in the blood.

Natural News also says that magnesium “helps prevent obesity genes from expressing themselves.”

At least 80 percent of Americans are now deficient in magnesium, which could help to explain why so many people struggle with being overweight. In addition to soil being depleted by overuse, the processing of so much of today’s food leaves it too low in magnesium to meet most people’s needs.

Eating foods rich in magnesium is a good first step to reversing a magnesium deficiency. Nuts, seeds, beans, and leafy green vegetables are all high in magnesium, along with certain types of fish, artichokes, bananas, and dark chocolate, says Moms Who Think.

Even eating magnesium-rich foods may not provide enough magnesium to meet the daily requirements of 320 mg for women and 420 mg for men. Supplements are a good way to meet these needs, but supplements vary in their effectiveness.

Magnesium citrate is the most easily absorbed type of supplement, according to Natural News. Other effective supplements include magnesium glycinate, which can be easier to digest, and magnesium chloride, which can speed up the metabolism.

Natural News recommends staying away from magnesium oxide, magnesium sulfate, and magnesium glutamate and aspartate, since they are not as safe or effective as other types of magnesium supplements.
