Minerals Involved with Weight Loss!—Part 4

Minerals Most Involved in Weight Loss (Continue)

Magnesium

Recent clinical studies concerning magnesium show that it also takes a part in regulating blood sugar and insulin levels. Low magnesium levels have been seen in Metabolic Syndrome X, which is a group of 5 risk factors that can increase one's chance of developing heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. A high intake of magnesium has been linked to lower levels of fasting glucose and insulin levels, which help fight against fat and weight gain. Magnesium is a major factor in maintaining a balanced metabolism and providing the body with energy. The role of magnesium in fighting insulin resistance allows the body to convert blood glucose into energy efficiently, resulting in healthy eating habits. According to information published by Dr. Carolyn Dean, magnesium reduces stress and anxiety. Stress and anxiety cause an increase in hunger and binge eating, leading to increased stores of body fat and weight gain.

Manganese

Manganese-activated enzymes are involved in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, amino acids, and cholesterol. Their effect on body fat and body weight, for the most part, come from the impact on the thyroid gland and regulation of blood sugar. Manganese normalizes insulin synthesis and secretion, and in doing so helps regulate blood glucose. Proper regulation of blood sugar decreases the formation of fat from glucose and regulates appetite control. Manganese has significant roles in thyroid function, including thyroid hormone synthesis and the conversion of T4 to T3 (the active thyroid hormone) which occurs in liver cells. Free radicals in the liver can negatively impact the formation of active thyroid. Manganese's super oxide dismutase antioxidant activity (SOD) found in the liver can protect the formation of the active thyroid. Thyroid hormone activity can help fight against fat and weight gain.
