How your genes are expressed will determine how you feel and if you will be healthy.
Years ago it was believed that we could not change that, but that has been proven wrong.
While we can’t change our genes, we can change gene expression, and it does not have to take long.
In this research, the participants were given either 500 mg per day of magnesium or a placebo for 4 weeks (Chacko SA, et al. 2011).
After 4 weeks it was found that magnesium up-regulated 24 genes and down-regulated 36, including genes related to metabolic and inflammatory pathways.
It was concluded that magnesium supplementation for 4 weeks led to favorable changes in gene expression on several metabolic pathways.
When taking magnesium remember to take it as an amino acid chelate since that is much better absorbed and will not cause gastrointestinal irritation like magnesium oxide can.
Magnesium bisglycenate has shown to be both better absorbed and well tolerated.
It is also better to take magnesium in a formula which includes the other most common minerals because they tend to affect each other.
Taking only one may result in decreased levels of another one.
