The newly discovered relationship between deficiency in this mineral and belly fat in men…
NEW form of vitamin C increases blood flow to the penis
I’m now using Super C, and it’s making regular vitamin C obsolete…
See, the problem with regular vitamin C is that it doesn’t stay in the body long enough…
Now, your body eliminates it in under 5 minutes (as you can see when you pee).
But my new Super C stays in the bloodstream for HOURS, not minutes.
And, more than that, it penetrates and helps cells in the brain, testes, and organs.
It constantly delivers incredible benefits:
- Makes you more immune to sickness (and reduces gut endotoxins, boosts T, and shrinks an inflamed prostate)
- Increases blood flow to the penis for better erections
- Reduces inflammation by up to 45%
- Naturally lowers blood pressure
- And so much more!
Is a deficiency in this mineral making men fat around the middle?
We need the mineral magnesium for hundreds of processes in the body.
But these days, a lot of people do not get enough magnesium.
And low magnesium intake is associated with almost every chronic disease.
Researchers in Taiwan looked at the effect of magnesium intake on depression and metabolic markers.
Among the findings, they discovered that people who eat more magnesium have smaller waists and less body fat.
These researchers conducted human research at the Fu-Jen Catholic University, New Taipei City, Taiwan. Nutrition Journal published the results.
Previous human studies showed that magnesium lowers the risk of type 2 diabetes.
“Magnesium intake may be one of the most important factors for diabetes prevention and management.”
Wee need magnesium for hundreds of biochemical reactions in the body, so low magnesium increases the risk of metabolic problems.
“Low magnesium intake may exacerbate metabolic abnormalities.”
This study looked at magnesium intake – and its effect on metabolic markers and depression in people with type 2 diabetes.
“We looked at the relationships of magnesium intake with metabolic parameters and depression in elderly patients with type II diabetes.”
The study recruited 98 men and 112 women with a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes.
“This cross-sectional study involved 210 type 2 diabetes patients aged 65 years and above.”
They interviewed the participants to collect detailed information about their diet.
And from this information, the researchers calculated the amount of magnesium the subjects consumed on a daily basis.
“Participants were interviewed to obtain information on lifestyle and 24-hour dietary recall.”
All of the participants completed numerous medical tests.
“Clinical variables measured included anthropometric measurements, blood pressure, and biochemical determinations of blood and urine samples.”
The researchers categorized the participants into four groups according to their dietary magnesium intake.
And they found that people with lower magnesium intake were more likely to have metabolic problems and depression.
“Metabolic syndromes and depression were associated with lower magnesium intake.”
Some of the most striking differences were on body weight and waist measurements.
People with more magnesium in their diet had smaller waists, less body fat, and a lower body mass index (BMI).
“Magnesium intake was inversely correlated with waist circumference, body fat percent, and body mass index.”
BMI is not a great marker for health problems. And that’s because it does not accurately calculate the amount of body fat.
Besides, even body fat is not a very accurate marker of health.
But waist circumference is an extremely useful measurement that strongly relates to health.
A larger waist increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.
It is also a good predictor of lifespan…
People with slimmer waists live longer.
Across the four categories, waist size decreased as magnesium intake increased.
“Waist circumference, body fat percentage, and body mass index were significantly lower with increased quartile of magnesium intake.”
These results are reason enough to eat a diet high in magnesium.
The researchers also point out that diabetes is a growing problem, especially in older people.
“Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a major…public health problem…worldwide and is increasing in aging populations.”
They also found that the vast majority of people in this study were not getting adequate magnesium.
“Among all patients, 88.6% had magnesium intake which was less than the dietary reference intake, and 37.1% had hypomagnesaemia.”
Getting more magnesium could be beneficial for a lot of people. Especially older people with type 2 diabetes.
“The majority of elderly type 2 diabetes [patients] who have low magnesium intake may compound this deficiency with metabolic abnormalities and depression.”
The researchers recommend further investigation into dietary magnesium or magnesium supplementation.
“Future studies should determine the effects of increased magnesium intake or magnesium supplementation on metabolic control and depression in elderly people with type 2 diabetes.”
Some of the benefits seen in this study could be achieved with magnesium supplements.
But many foods that are high in magnesium are pretty healthy in other regards as well.
So perhaps some of the benefit comes from eating high-magnesium foods rather than just from the magnesium itself.
It’s best to increase dietary magnesium as much as possible – and then perhaps supplement on top of that.
These foods are rich in magnesium: leafy greens, bananas, some fish, legumes, avocados, dark chocolate.
You should always consult a healthcare practitioner about diagnosing and treating any health problems.
The “length and girth” secret to a longer, thicker penis
This is simply life-changing for men who want their penis to be a little longer and thicker.
I got this “length and girth” secret from an ancient Yurupari shaman living in a small Colombian village…
And it really works. It’s safer than stretching or jelqing… And it’s all-natural.
