DID YOU KNOW that magnesium data is so voluminous that these gems have just appeared since my last post in the beginning of June?

A study in The Lancet eBioMedicine describes a new role for magnesium in suppressing arthritis, especially in those with rheumatoid arthritis and autoimmune diseases, by way of mediating the intestinal microbiome.

Higher urinary magnesium loss, as indicated by an elevated magnesium depletion score, is an independent risk factor for metabolic syndrome in US adults, according to studies from Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism and Frontiers in Nutrition.

A study in Nutrients found serum magnesium levels are significantly lower in Crohn's disease (CD) patients compared to healthy controls and suggest that magnesium supplementation could improve CD management by enhancing remission rates and sleep quality.

Most older adults experience chronic magnesium deficiency or hypomagnesemia, which may be due to low dietary magnesium content, reduced intestinal absorption, and increased urination. In a recent study in Nutrients, researchers found that optimizing magnesium levels slows down aging.

Diabetes medication, especially metformin, was associated with elevated odds of magnesium deficiency, which weakens the association between metformin and lowering of blood sugar levels, as published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

DID YOU KNOW that quercetin, the all-purpose flavonoid, has been trending very favorably in the last few months?

A study from The Journal of Nutrition found patients with inflammatory bowel disease who consumed higher intakes of quercetin had a lower risk of all-cause mortality.

A first-of-its-kind study in Phytotherapy Research suggests quercetin preserves the integrity of mitochondria and mitochondrial energy metabolism. Moreover, quercetin may operate synergistically to oversee the dextoxification of dead mitochondria, a very important function to keep energy levels throughout the body.

According to researchers in Food and Function, quercetin may have the capability to influence DNA methylation modification, one of the primary factors in the preventing the development of tumors.

Finally, authors of a study from Frontiers in Nutrition suggest supplementation with quercetin should be used for the alleviation of long COVID symptoms.

DID YOU KNOW that a phytochemical found in pomegranates and walnuts that we recommend all the time to clients supplementally improves memory and treatment of Alzheimer's disease?

The study in Alzheimer's & Dementia found that urolithin A supplementation removes weak mitochondria from the brain. The lead author states, "Many patients with neurodegenerative diseases experience mitochondrial dysfunction, also known as mitophagy. This means that the brain has difficulties removing weak mitochondria, which thus accumulate and affect brain function. If you are able to stimulate the mitophagy process, removing weak mitochondria, you will see some very positive results."

We've been saying for the last few years and for much more than Alzheimer's :) If you want suggestions for dosage, email Steve.
