Magnesium and Weight Loss: The Hidden Link

By    |   Friday, 13 May 2016 05:07 PM

Magnesium is a mineral that energizes the body for healthy weight management and weight loss. The essential mineral is found in leafy green vegetables, whole grains, nuts, beans, and supplements.

Because magnesium is involved in more than 300 chemical reactions throughout the body, it helps relax muscles, maintain calmness, and encourage restful sleep, which is important for a diet plan, according to Shape magazine.

High levels of insulin can increase blood glucose levels, a factor associated with excess body weight, Jill Corleone wrote for Livestrong. A high intake of magnesium improves insulin and blood glucose levels, according to a 2013 study reported in the Journal of Nutrition.

Weight gain and bloating often result from premenstrual syndrome. Researchers found that women who took magnesium supplements had fewer symptoms of bloating and swelling than those in a group given B-6 vitamins or a placebo, according to a study reported in the December 2012 issue of the Journal of Caring Sciences.

Magnesium has abilities to absorb and use proteins, carbohydrates, and fats for better digestion, said Dr. Carolyn Dean, according to Natural News. While good digestion helps with weight loss, magnesium also prevents activity from obesity genes in the body. It helps regulate metabolism as an energy nutrient.

A diet high in processed foods lacks the necessary nutrients to satisfy the appetite. The body craves the missing nutrients, which causes more eating, but adequate levels of magnesium keep the body energized and satisfied.

Stress interferes with maintaining a healthy weight. The body releases stress chemicals that can slow down metabolism and add to the body’s fat storage. However, magnesium neutralizes stress effects, Dean reported.

Magnesium contributes to overall health, which encourages weight loss. It activates enzymes, regulates calcium levels, and maintains strong bones, Corleone wrote. Men usually need 400 to 420 milligrams of magnesium a day while women require 310 to 320.
