Magnesium is absolutely vital to good health. In the body it's the 4th most abundant mineral. It is involved in about 300 reactions in the body. Low levels of magnesium can cause all kinds of health problems, one being insomnia, anxiety and restless leg syndrome. As we age our ability to absorb magnesium through the gut decreases and the need for this mineral increases (thanks kidneys!)
Magnesium helps to improve the function of our cells and decreases inflammation.
Applying magnesium "transdermally" or directly on the skin which allows it to be absorbed right into our cells is one of the most efficient ways to get it into your body.
Its great at helping get relief from stress, sleeping issues, anxiety, muscle pain and cramping and arthritic pain. It can also be used to boost energy and endurance!
2. Magnesium ChlorideHow To Use
Expect a tingling sensation when you first start to use magnesium oil. If this is your first time using magnesium oil, apply it to a small test patch first, to gauge the intensity of the tingling.
Many people say that the tingling will decrease over time, as your body becomes less deficient in the nutrient. This was definitely true, although it still feels slightly unpleasant for a few minutes after application. But the health benefits are totally worth it!
Although it varies from person-to-person, there are general areas that are less sensitive to the magnesium oil and make better application sites. Application to areas with more adipose tissue (a.k.a. the plump areas) are less sensitive. Try the thighs, hips, and belly. Shins and forearms also work well. Try to avoid the creases of the elbows, behind the knees, creases of the bottom, and the neck if you are experiencing tingling. These areas are usually more sensitive.
Always consult a healthcare practitioner before beginning a new treatment.
