The Magnesium Cure

The mineral magnesium has amazing powers to treat and even prevent serious medical conditions.

New Findings: Magnesium is a key factor in memory and learning. Adequate levels may even prevent Alzheimer's disease. Researchers at MIT's Picower Center for Learning and Memory found that magnesium affects the synapses- connections between brain cells- by improving their plasticity, or ability to adapt to change, which declines with age. Most people don't get enough magnesium. An adult's daily nutritional requirement is 400 milligrams (mg), but a survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that the average intake is about 290 mg.

Here is how magnesium can help you with DIABETES.

We're in the midst of a diabetes epidemic-more than 18 million Americans have type 2 diabetes, a disorder of the blood sugar (glucose) metabolism. Another 41 million have insulin resistance, a pre-diabetic state characterized by higher than normal blood levels of glucose and insulin, the hormone that regulates blood sugar. Diabetes increases the risk of heart disease and stroke and can lead to kidney failure, eye problems, nerve damage and other dangerous conditions.

Magnesium enhances insulin secretion, which facilitates sugar metabolism. Without magnesium, insulin is not able to transfer glucose into cells. Glucose and insulin build up in the blood, causing various types of tissue damage.

Proof that it works: Researchers at Harvard tracked more than 120,000 men and women for 18 years. People getting the least dietary magnesium had a 23% higher risk of type 2 diabetes than people getting the most. In another study, people with insulin resistance took a placebo or 2.5 grams of magnesium daily (a high dose that should be taken only under a doctor's care). After 3 months, those taking the mineral had a 25% increase in blood levels of magnesium and a 44% decrease in insulin resistance. Those taking the placebo had no change in either.

Good Things to Include in Your Diet

It can sometimes be hard to get the correct healthy recipes and diet food to eat daily. A lot of the population are just so busy with their day to day lives that something like eating healthy can take a back seat. In a perfect world people should only eat non-processed foods that are filled with their daily vitamin and minerals needs but more and more often people are going for the easy option.

The correct daily caloric intake for a woman is 2000 kcals and 2500 kcals for a man. This amount of calories should consist of the essentials like fiber, calcium and vitamin C just to name a few. Some people take vitamins as a supplement but this should not be needed if your diet is in check. In this article I am going to give you a list of foods that should be included in your healthy recipes and diet food.

Healthy Recipes and Diet Food

The outcast of the nut world some might say. Not quite a nut, possibly a fruit but what ever category you put almonds into nothing gets away from the fact that they are possibly the best type of food for overall health. They are packed full of fibre, protein and heart healthy fat. Go get your almond on.

Psyllium Husks
More of a natural supplement than an actual food but physllium is one of the most potent forms of fibre available. It is also believed to get rid of bad LDL cholesterol from the body

Green Tea
Not quite a food either but green tea helps you to lose weight and improve heart health. Drink with just the tea leaves and hot water.

This short list of healthy recipes and diet food will give your body a massive boost in energy and alertness in a very short period of time. Make sure to stay around your optimal caloric intake or you will gain weight no matter how many good foods you eat.
