The risk of Type 2 diabetes is 14% lower for every 100 mg increase in magnesium intake per day in people with a body mass index over 25 (overweight or obese) according to a study from China.
"This meta-analysis provides further evidence supporting that magnesium intake is significantly inversely associated with risk of type 2 diabetes in a dose-response manner," the authors of the study concluded.
