A study led by Dr. A Ka of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill found a strong relationship between magnesium and type 2 diabetes. The study discovered that individuals who ingested the highest amount of magnesium slashed their risk of diabetes.
During the study, researchers looked both at magnesium intake and diabetes risk in 4,497 people aged 18 to 30 years old. None of the participants was found to be diabetic in the study’s outset. Within a 20-year follow-up period, 330 of the subjects developed diabetes.
Individuals with the highest magnesium intake were 47 percent less likely to develop diabetes than those with the lowest intake.
