Bodies use magnesium to break down fruit sugars


I recently posted this and had someone ask me if our bodies use magnesium to break down fruit sugars.
I know that fruits are an excellent source of magnesium, but don’t know the answer to his question.
Any insight would be appreciated!


Terrain answer:

The body uses all vitamins and minerals in combination with other vitamins and minerals but when we eat fruits we supply the vitamins and minerals along with the sugar. In refined sugar there are no vitamins and minerals coming in with the sugar so the body has to pull from its own supplies. So its not necessarily that the body is using its that the refined sugar is not supplying, while the fruit is supplying.
