Hey guys dr. Berg here. In this video we’re going to talk about the two most ignored minerals and diabetes okay. So this is really cool information this is very powerful if you are a diabetic or if you’re a pre-diabetic and you have insulin resistance.
What I mean by that is if you have belly fat if you have a fatty liver, if you’re tired after eating, if you can’t go between meals without being very hungry, if you feel better when you eat, if you have swell a swollen belly, if you actually have sweet cravings or high blood pressure. Those are all signs of insulin resistance.
If you have that you this videos for you there are two minerals one is potassium and one is magnesium. Magnesium makes an enzymes to help lower the blood sugar, and Potassium is involved with helping the storage of sugar coal glycogen so your body will store sugar in between meals and your liver in your muscles.
So if you don’t have that capacity it could be because you don’t have no potassium but here’s the thing that’s that people don’t realize insulin triggers the absorption uptake of both potassium and magnesium in the cell, without insulin you cannot absorb magnesium or potassium.
So right there that’s going to create a deficiency and then both of these actions the lower the blood sugars and the storage of glycogen aren’t going to happen. Now you have a double-edged sword so what happens is, when you increase magnesium and potassium or just normal, if you just have the normal amount you can decrease the need for instance you can actually help heal the sensitivity to glucose and the insulin resistance.
I’m going to put some links down below that there’s studies that show that you can take these two minerals and greatly improve if not fix insulin resistance. Of course you have to change your diet and things like that but that’s very very amazing that these two minerals can actually lower the need for insulin and then when you lower the need for insulin.
Now you have enough insulin to pull in these minerals into the cell and it just will all work out real nicely. The other thing is that hypercalcemia that’s too much calcium if you look that up and I put a link down below that can cause diabetes that’s one of the interesting side effects from having hypercalcemia cause of diabetes probably because when you have too much calcium calcium it can lock up magnesium because calcium magnesium work together.
So if you have soft tissue calcium and spurring arthritis and things like that or taking tums or calcium carbonate you know you’re not taking up magnesium just straight calcium carbonate you know especially if you’re an anti acids that can set you up for diabetes. Interesting that’s probably also why vitamin d3 in k2 improve diabetes as well I put some links down below for that too, so probably because this mobilizes the calcium and frees up the magnesium.
so how can you get these minerals?
Well this’ll happens they’re both in the same food. Vegetables yeah so we keep coming back to this vegetable thing right you need 7 to 10 cups of vegetables every single day you can do in a blender, you can do it in a salad, it’s not that hard.
But it’s very important to get that amount because if you’re doing 7 to 10 cups to get your potassium you’re going to easily get the magnesium because magnesium is in the same vegetables.
You don’t need as much you need about 450 milligrams but you need 4700 milligrams of potassium so here’s what I want you to do for the next week go ahead and start consuming more vegetables. You’ll increase these and just see if any of these symptoms start going away then you’ll know that this is what caused or contributed to your problem in the first place alright thanks for watching oh and I’ll check out your comments below
