Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/09/2016 -- Many people know about diabetes, but even those who are diabetic typically don't realize the role that magnesium plays in the disease. Magnesium is a key ingredient in the way the body regulates sugar levels in the blood. More than 75 percent of all U.S. adults are deficient in the mineral, but an elemental pure magnesium oil spray can help replenish those levels.
"According to the National Institute of Health, multiple studies have demonstrated that maintaining sufficient magnesium levels can lower the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, the most common form of the disease," said Angela Kennedy, founder of Purest Vantage.
Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body doesn't utilize available insulin properly (insulin resistance) or doesn't produce enough of the hormone, allowing excess sugar to build up with no way to use it or effectively eliminate it from the body. People with diabetes are at higher risk of developing a magnesium deficiency, and even some oral diabetic medications can contribute to a magnesium deficit.
An American Diabetes Association study in 2013 found that in middle aged individuals, magnesium reduced the risk of impaired insulin reaction and slowed the progression of pre-diabetes to diabetes. Magnesium must be replenished regularly, as it's quickly eliminated from the body through the kidneys and digestive system.
Poorly controlled diabetes, a wide variety of medications, kidney disease, and the consumption of alcoholic and carbonated beverages contribute to a magnesium deficit and significantly impair the body's ability to absorb the mineral, even if it's available in abundant quantities. Large doses of calcium can disrupt the delicate balance of magnesium in the body.
A myriad of complications are associated with diabetes, from nerve and heart-related problems to kidney damage and the development of cataracts. Magnesium plays a key role in transmitting nerve impulses and aiding the heart muscle to contract/beat. Insufficient magnesium can result in seizures, abnormal heart rhythms, tingling and numbness in the extremities, and muscle cramps, all of which are affected by magnesium levels.
Purest Vantage provides consumers with a transdermal supplement that provides 3,575 mg. of magnesium per ounce. Applied to the skin, it's been specially designed to reduce itching that may occur with topical applications. It's a convenient alternative to magnesium supplement pills for individuals with diabetes.
