Every cell in our body needs magnesium. It is required in various body functions ranging from metabolic or enzyme activity, protein manufacture, bone formation, new cell production, blood clotting or making ATP, etc.
Apart from these, magnesium plays a key role in regulating blood sugar. Studies suggest that deficiency of magnesium affects the pancreas' ability to secrete insulin essential for blood sugar regulation. It has been found that diabetes severity and magnesium levels are inversely proportional to each other, especially if the disease has remained for a protracted period.
