Reduce insulin resistance while at the same time support bone formation

Insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome are conditions which increase the risk for chronic disease, diabetes and cardiovascular disease are two examples. 

The study reviewed investigated the effect of oral magnesium supplementation on insulin sensitivity in overweight, insulin resistant, non-diabetic participants (Mooren FC, et al. 2011).

The study went on for 3 months and provided significant evidence that magnesium supplementation improves insulin sensitivity.

Magnesium is a very important mineral for several reasons and it is also important for bone formation (Sojka JE, Weaver CM. 1995).

It is better to take all of the most important minerals in a well balanced formula, since taking only one type of mineral can cause a decrease in another one.

The BMJ formula is an excellent way of getting all of the important minerals in a very bioavailable form. This formula also contains vitamin D, glucosamine sulfate and vitamin B6, supporting bones as well as joints. Click here to read more about the BMJ.
