Author(s): Clemens, Zsofia, Dr. | Abstract: Introduction Magnesium plays an essential role in several enzymatic reactions. Its deficiency is known to be widespread and has been associated with a variety of pathological conditions characterized by chronic inflammation and/or oxidative stress. The connection between the metabolism of glucose and magnesium at the cell level is well-established. We hypothesize that magnesium deficiency in chronic conditions is primarily due to Western type… Expand

Mg is actively transported into and out of cells and is influenced by various hormonal and pharmacological factors which perhaps regulate the intracellular Mg concentration and hence activity of Mg-sensitive enzymes. Expand
Strong and persistent effect on liver fat with a Paleolithic diet during a two-year intervention
A PD with ad libitum intake had a significant and persistent effect on liver fat and differed significantly from a conventional LFD at 6 months and this difference may be due to food quality, for example, a higher content of mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids in the PD. Expand
