The Swee2ooth Difference: A Powerful Punch of Disease-Fighting Magnesium
With the countless vitamins and minerals doctors and dieticians say we need to maintain proper health, it’s hard (if not impossible) to keep them all straight. But if Diabetics can just commit one of these micronutrients to memory, make it magnesium, found in EVERY SCOOP of Swee2ooth!
Why? Because humans need magnesium, especially Type 2 Diabetics and Pre Type 2s, and according to research, most of us (up to 80% of Americans) don’t get enough of it.
Your Daily Dose of Mg
Every scoop of Swee2ooth contains 400mg of magnesium – 100% of the recommended daily intake (RDA) – and that’s no accident. Studies show that magnesium-rich diets reduce the risk of Type 2 Diabetes. Moreover, Type 2s are at a high risk of deficiency, as low levels of magnesium are associated with insulin resistance and high blood sugar can cause more magnesium to be lost through urine.
Magnesium for Type 2s: Why it matters
Getting adequate amounts of magnesium can help people avoid developing Type 2 Diabetes, but it can also help those already diagnosed with Type 2 fight off illnesses commonly associated with the disease.
One highly informative article on DiabetesSelfManagement.com gives three specific reasons why existing Type 2s need magnesium in their diets:
1) Low magnesium levels can lead to high blood pressure. Diabetics tend to have higher blood pressure than non-diabetics, so this is critical.
2) Adequate magnesium intake can help treat heart problems in those with a history of cardiovascular disease. Many Type 2s will fall into this category, as they’re at an extremely high risk of heart disease.
3) Magnesium may help reduce inflammation. Inflammation is a major concern for Type 2s – if at chronic levels, it can lead to heart disease, cancer, and increased insulin resistance.
Bottom line: Type 2 Diabetics (and anyone trying to reduce the risk of Type 2) need plenty of magnesium in their diets. Some of the best food sources include nuts, beans, whole grains (brown rice, whole wheat bread), and green leafy vegetables.
Another great source of magnesium is the Swee2ooth Diabetic Fit Shake. With the full recommended daily dose of magnesium in every scoop, it’s never been easier – and more delicious! – to get the crucial minerals your body needs for optimal health.
