The Mineral That Will Melt Your Belly Fat!
A Happy, Flat Tummy!
We all want a Flat Tummy and a lean mid section. This is easily accomplished by increasing the intake of Magnesium.
Magnesium is one of the most important minerals for the body and yet, its health benefits are often under-appreciated. According to the National Institutes of Health: “Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. There is an increased interest in the role of magnesium in preventing and managing disorders such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. Dietary magnesium is absorbed in the small intestines. Magnesium is excreted through the kidneys.”
Magnesium is a mineral that is important in growth of gut bacteria, also known as the skinny bacteria. There’s solid proof that thin people have more good bacteria than heavy people; turns out, good bacteria reduces calorie absorption thus preventing us from gaining weight.
They also minimize gas and irritation as food is broken down-key, since inflammation caused by digestive distress is linked to bloat, excess belly fay and many other health problems.
