Calcium and Magnesium Help Prevent Type II Diabetes
Tuesday, March 31, 2009

A fundamental health principle is having a reserve of minerals that are involved in millions of daily chemistry reactions that sustain health. A new study of 64,000 women1 shows that higher intakes of both calcium and magnesium reduce the risk for developing type II diabetes by 21% - 33%. Even milk intake was found to be protective.
This information shows that nutrition basics, such as nutrients that make energy, antioxidant reserves, and in this case, mineral reserves, are crucial for maintaining health. Certainly, when thinking about diabetes most attention would go to obesity, insulin resistance, leptin resistance, pancreas health, and liver health. The fact that simple deficiencies of basic minerals can set the stage for serious disease is a very interesting point to consider. It is well advised to be sure that you are getting basic supplies of the key nutrients that are the foundations of your health.
