Anyone here take magnesium and does it help blood glucose
I take magnesium as I'm on a low carbohydrate diet. It's supposed to boost energy, regulate blood sugar levels and support your immune system. I'm not sure if it actually does this myself, but I take it anyway.
I haven’t taken magnesium for blood glucose control, but for leg cramps when I went low carb. However I learnt that magnesium is not absorbed so well taking it by mouth, so in the initial stages I used magnesium oil rubbed into the skin. I now maintain my magnesium intake by using pink Himalayan salt in my cooking.
I use a magnesium oil spray on my skin every night. I can't say it helps blood sugars, or I haven't noticed if it does. It is supposed to help regulate irregular heart beats, help with energy levels, and with cramps. . An oil spray absorbs better than tablets. It does seem to help my energy levels, but hasn't done much for my ventricular ectopic heart beats. I don't know if I actually need a magnesium supplement because I eat a lot of the foods that contain it - meat, fish and dairy, but I use it anyway.
