"The results provide significant evidence that oral magnesium supplementation improves insulin sensitivity even in overweight, non-diabetes subjects, emphasizing the need for an early optimization of magnesium status to prevent insulin resistance."

Research has shown people taking a daily magnesium supplement can help prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.
According to Diabetes.UK, a study conducted by Liebig University in Germany and published in the journal Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism investigated the use of oral magnesium supplements for increasing insulin resistance . They monitored 52 overweight and insulin resistant patients, and who were not suffering from diabetes, over a period of six months, with half of them receiving active magnesium supplements and the other half a placebo. It was shown that those who had taken the supplement had much healthier blood sugar levels, as well as an improvement in their insulin sensitivity.
The report pointed out that "The results provide significant evidence that oral magnesium supplementation improves insulin sensitivity even in overweight, non-diabetes subjects, emphasizing the need for an early optimization of magnesium status to prevent insulin resistance and subsequently type 2 diabetes."
In the June 2011 issue of Clinical Nutrition researchers from Brazil studied 51 type 2 diabetics and measured their magnesium levels. What they found was a clear association between magnesium levels and blood glucose levels. Of the people studied 77% were deficient in magnesium and the lower their magnesium level the higher their glucose levels measured.
Diabetes Support Supplements contains 10 ingredients to lower blood sugar naturally including magnesium cinnamon, cocoa, omega-3, vitamin D and others. Along with lifestyle changes including diet and exercise Diabetes Support is a new proactive approach to help people with Type 2 Diabetes.
