This is a very interesting study!
It shows that people who are low in thyroid also have low magnesium levels.
And it shows that the cause of most modern disease is a result of low thyroid and low magnesium levels.
Most modern day diseases can be traced back to chronic internal inflammation.
Surprisingly, this is a study that although published in the Canadian Medical Journal, was actually done in Egypt.
We don’t see too many studies out of Egypt these days.
And the quality of the study is excellent.
Magnesium is at very low levels in most people.
The result of these low levels is inflammation.
Many studies have shown that increasing your body’s magnesium levels lowers inflammation.
Inflammation is measured various ways.
You can get an hs-CRP test, which can be done at the lab taking your blood and doing the test.
It measures the c-reactive protein in your blood.
Or, you can do a blood test showing IL6 or TNF-alpha.
IL6 is short for interluken-6.
TNF-alpha is the code for tumor tap water factor alpha.
These are both proteins used in cell communication.
And all three of these proteins are elevated with internal inflammation.
The general test that most people will do as the hs-CRP test.
That’s one of the tests because people with a high CRP rating have high inflammation in the body.
And in this study, it was shown that magnesium lowers inflammation.
They also found that thyroid T4 lowers inflammation.
And using both together lowers inflammation even more than either of them separately.
In this study, researchers divided the rats into groups.
One group of rats got tapwater.
The second group of rats got magnesium sulfate.
And the last group of rats got thyroid T4 treatment.
They caused some of the rats to become hypothyroid, or low thyroid.
They did this by administering a medication that interferes with the synthesis of T3 from T4.
Remember that T4 requires a step in the body to be turned into T3.
T3 is active thyroid — if you take T3, it raises your metabolism for a few hours.
T3 is instantly available.
T4 requires storage and utilization in the liver, which sometimes takes a few weeks.
The point is that T4 is the storage form of thyroid, and T3 is the active form.
So in these rats, they interfered with the conversion of T4 into T3.
And this casued the rats to suffer from being low thyroid.
The low thyroid rats had a lot of internal inflammation.
Inflammation was all over in the rats bodies.
It’s exactly how most of us today are.
Most of us have significant internal inflammation.
This results in diabetes, prostate inflammation, heart disease, and a lot more.
Then the researchers gave these rats magnesium or thyroid or both.
They found that the rats receiving magnesium and thyroid together reversed the inflammation.
This group of rats became a lot healthier.
This study reinforced what many studies show.
It told us again that most of us are low in thyroid today.
It showed that most of us are low in magnesium.
We may be taking magnesium, but the magnesium is not being absorbed or utilized.
Is difficult to get enough magnesium when you’re already very low in magnesium.
Even if you consume magnesium, it’s very poorly absorbed.
By taking magnesium and thyroid together may solve that issue.
The study shows that we could become a lot healthier and reverse a lot of the inflammation in our bodies taking both.
Here’s a special note on endothelial inflammation in particular.
Endothelial cells line the membranes are skin.
Endothelial cells also line the erection chambers in the penis.
This study points to inflammation in the penis chambers that may be interfering with erections.
So it is possible that magnesium and thyroid may reverse this endothelial inflammation.
This could fix erectile dysfunction.
The study did not go that far, but it certainly could have.
