Food sources rich in the mineral magnesium may help reduce your risk of developing vitamin D deficiency, according to new research published online in the journal Nature.
Magnesium is essential to your body’s ability to absorb and produce the vitamin.
Magnesium supplements have been available for decades, but there are no proven clinical trials that show they help with vitamin D levels.
Now, researchers from the University of Oxford and the University College London say they have shown that supplements containing magnesium may protect against vitamin D-deficiency.
Magneto, an international non-profit organization working on the global health of magnesium, has been conducting research into magnesium’s impact on the immune system for more than 20 years.
The group is currently recruiting people to take a supplement that contains magnesium.
The research team recruited 2,700 volunteers to take three magnesium-rich capsules for 10 days.
They then followed the volunteers for a year, and measured their vitamin D level using a blood test.
The results showed that people who took magnesium supplements had lower levels of vitamin D than those who did not.
Magnetic propertiesMagnetos magnetic properties were measured using an electrostatic probe.
Magnetic fields can be detected by measuring the amount of energy they can generate.
Magnetic fields can also be detected using a scanning tunneling microscope (STM).
This type of imaging allows scientists to observe how electrons flow in the crystal structure.
Magneos magnetic field can be measured using a STM.
Magnores magnetic field is measured using the magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) technique.
This method is known for detecting atomic-scale structure changes in atoms and molecules.
Magneos field can also measure the amount and shape of electrons that can be captured.
Magna, an International Business Times company, recently reported on the discovery that magnesium is linked to reduced risk of type 2 diabetes.
Magna says the magnesium-based supplement is a potential candidate for the treatment of type II diabetes.
The company is also working on a magnesium-specific diabetes test.
The magnesium supplement has been shown to reduce the risk of death and disability due to type 2 diabetics.
Researchers say it’s likely the magnesium supplement can prevent the type II diabete from developing vitamin K deficiency and may help protect against the disease.
