Herbal One outlines the reasons to try magnesium for weight loss

There are three main reasons why you should consider magnesium for weight loss. First, just about every role magnesium plays in your body can help you control your weight.

Second, it is an essential mineral that your body must get from your diet and/or nutritional supplements.

Third, while full-on magnesium deficiencies are uncommon, most people don’t get high enough magnesium levels from their diets.

But there are other reasons, more directly-related to losing weight, why you should actually try magnesium for weight loss.

Here’s Why You Should Try Magnesium

Increasing your daily magnesium intake to address weight gain can mean eating more magnesium-rich foods, like dark, leafy greens, nuts, seeds, fish and beans, and/or using magnesium supplements. For example, Herbal One’s Ultra Stabilizer is a unique formulation of a variety of weight-stabilizing compounds in a base of magnesium stearate.

In any case, here are just some of the health benefits of magnesium that also help you lose weight.

  1. Lowers Insulin Resistance – Magnesium helps regulate your blood sugar levels and  If your body becomes more resistant to insulin, it can lead to increased glucose in your bloodstream, which contributes to weight gain.
  2. Magnesium Helps You Get Off the Couch – Magnesium plays a primary role in cell energy production and muscle contraction. That means it gives you an energy boost and improves how your body performs when you’re Active. If you dread the thought of exercise, it could be because your body doesn’t have high enough amounts of magnesium, and you feel listless. Of course, higher activity levels helps your body burn more calories.
  3. Lowers Blood Pressure – The usual connection between blood pressure and weight is that the likelihood of high blood pressure and hypertension increases as your weight increases too. But the opposite is also true. If you find ways to lower your blood pressure, it can help you reduce weight too.
