The body’s magnesium levels must be replenished daily. Magnesium, also known as the Master Mineral, is considered by many to be the most critical mineral in the human anatomy. It is involved in over 15,000 cellular functions and 300 enzyme interactions, yet its presence is lacking in today’s typical diet. When magnesium levels become deficient, the body can suffer many detrimental health issues, such as accelerated skin aging, diabetes, depression, kidney stones, muscle weakness and fatigue, insomnia, and many other mental and physical problems.
Magnesium, applied topically, absorbs faster into the body thus providing the following health benefits:
- Helps Increase Energy
Magnesium plays a key role in the increase of energy levels. Higher levels of magnesium are needed during exercise. This is why our MagneSport line is recommended for athletes and those with active lifestyles.
Magnesium helps the blood flow into your muscles and works to create ATP. ATP is responsible for providing energy within our cells for metabolism. Transdermal magnesium provides an effective and fast way for magnesium to enter the body. Magnesium is great to use before & after workouts to provide energy during the workout and provide muscle relief and decrease lactic acid buildup after the workout.
- Calms Nerves & Anxiety
A healthy amount of magnesium can reduce stress and anxiety. Magnesium blocks the release of stress hormones and raises levels of serotonin. This can boost your mood, calm nerves and diminish anxiety. Using our MagneSoothe products increase the calming effect of magnesium by including lavender.
- Treats Insomnia & Helps You Fall Asleep
Insomnia can be linked to magnesium deficiency. Those who lack magnesium, often have trouble sleeping throughout the night. Magnesium supports one’s deep sleep by maintaining healthy levels of GABA, a neurotransmitter that aids sleep. Our MagneSoothe products aid with sleeplessness because it contains magnesium, as well as lavender. The lavender adds to the calming effects of the magnesium to create a more sound and deep sleep.
- Reduces Swelling & Bruising
Applying a small amount of our topical magnesium products can help reduce swelling and bruising. Magnesium helps with blood flow and speeds up the healing time. Using 2-3 times a day will provide optimal results with bruising and swelling.
- Relieves Muscle Aches & Spasms
Magnesium has been linked with controlling muscle aches and spasms. There have been numerous testimonials claiming Mg12 has helped with their restless leg syndrome at night. Magnesium helps regulate muscle contractions by relaxing the muscle.
Magnesium has the same effect on muscle aches. Muscle aches are caused by calcium buildup and if your body doesn’t get enough magnesium to balance the calcium, your muscle will cramp or spasm. Maintaining a healthy level of calcium to magnesium is important, especially after exercise. Exercise will deplete the magnesium and cause a calcium buildup.
- Regulates Levels of Calcium, Potassium & Sodium
It is important to maintain healthy levels of magnesium, calcium, potassium and sodium. Often times people are magnesium deficient and health concerns can arise. Having higher levels of calcium without magnesium to balance it can create muscle spasms. Potassium, along with magnesium, regulates heart rhythm and not enough magnesium can leave potassium with creating irregular heart rhythms.
- Important for Heart Health
Magnesium plays a major role in heart health and regulating muscle function. Magnesium helps the heart maintain a healthy rhythm and regulate blood flow and pressure. Healthy amounts of Magnesium can reduce cardiovascular disease. Using magnesium daily can provide the body with healthy amounts to keep the heart strong.
- Prevents Migraines & Headaches
Using Transdermal Magnesium, in addition to the daily magnesium supplementation, at the start of a headache will increase blood flow thus creating a reduction of pain.
Jay S. Cohen concludes that “magnesium is more than an essential nutrient. At higher doses, magnesium is a pharmacologically active substance” with “clearly defined effects on the blood vessels, brain, heart, and other systems throughout the body”. A person with normal levels of magnesium “will still experience magnesium’s pharmalogical effects”.
