Magnesium participates in over 300 hormone reactions in our bodies and is the most versatile mineral we have.
Most adults in the USA are highly deficient in magnesium and paying the price for it yet we almost never hear about it.
What is Magnesium?
Magnesium keeps your heart beating regularly, your muscles and nervous system working, is involved in energy production, and protein synthesis. Magnesium is involved in the bodies’ detoxification process, regulates the blood sugar levels and helps support a healthy immune system while maintaining strong bones and healthy teeth.
Since it is involved with over 300 hormone reactions, it is vital to our well-being. Here is a list of what it does:
- Gives rigidity AND flexibility to your bones
- Increases bioavailability of calcium
- Regulates and normalizes blood pressure
- Prevents and reverses kidney stone formation
- Promotes restful sleep
- Helps prevent congestive heart failure
- Eases muscle cramps and spasms
- Lowers serum cholesterol levels and triglycerides
- Decreases insulin resistance
- Can prevent atherosclerosis and stroke
- End cluster and migraine headaches
- Enhances circulation
- Relieves fibromyalgia and chronic pain
- Treats asthma and emphysema
- Helps make proteins
- Encourages proper elimination
- Prevents osteoporosis
Sounds pretty important, right?
How do I get Magnesium?
Through diet and transdermally (rubbing the oil on your skin).
Eating leafy green foods, fermented foods and avoiding processed and refined foods are all great ways to get your magnesium.
However, due to most modern farming processes that tax the soil, depleting it of its natural magnesium, a supplement or a rub is often the best way.
What is Magnesium Oil?
Magnesium oil is a high-density solution of concentrated magnesium chloride (33%) and trace minerals suspended in pure water. It is slick and therefore described as an oil.
Transdermal application offers a safe and effective means to raise and replenish magnesium levels in the body so this solution is excellent for use directly upon skin.
What are Signs that I am Low in Magnesium?
Because magnesium affects pretty much everything, the magnesium deficiency symptoms are diverse and can include:
- Anxiety, hyperactivity, restlessness
- Muscle spasms, twitches, soreness
- Difficulty swallowing
- Back aches
- Chest tightness and difficulty breathing
- Heart palpitations
- High blood pressure
- Extreme fatigue
Why & How I Use Magnesium Oil.
You know I always like to look and feel my best. In order to do this, magnesium cannot be overlooked.
The oil is the best, most efficient way to raise my magnesium levels safely, so that is what I use. Please check with your doctor first to make sure that magnesium oil is safe for you. Also test it on a small patch of skin on your forearm or another less sensitive patch of skin to make sure you don’t have a reaction BEFORE you use it everywhere! If you have sensitive skin, it may sting a bit the first few times you use it. That is ok, your body is just adjusting to this new way of getting it’s magnesium fix!
I use this spray before and after a workout and it soothes my muscles while helping my body do what it needs to in order to keep me healthy.
If I am feeling a bit anxious or am having a hard time falling asleep, I find a rub or a bath with magnesium oil can help. Even just a foot bath works if I don’t feel up to a big bath!
I have also found it helpful with headaches. I will rub some on my temples and my neck and it does help alleviate the pain. I find several squirts held under my tongue for a few minutes very beneficial not only to my oral health, but to my headaches as well.
