Living with Severe Back Pain
Two and a half years ago, the power of Magnesium totally transformed Tom Strader's life. Having grown on a farm, Tom understood the meaning of hard work. However, in 2012, he encountered severe back pain that began to plague his body. He traveled for work and became increasingly affected by his persistent back pain. From his mood to his ability to get a good night’s rest, the pain touched every aspect of Tom’s life.
Pain medication only added to his discomfort because, whenever he took the prescription drugs, he didn’t feel like himself. His doctors diagnosed a bulging disc and wanted to operate. Then a friend suggested he try magnesium oil made by a company called Magnesoothe.
Magnesium Heals His Back
After taking Magnesoothe Magnesium for about four weeks, Tom woke up one morning with no more pain. It was at that moment that Tom learned what many of us now know:
- Magnesium is vital for human health
- Many Americans have a Magnesium deficiency.
- Magnesium deficiency can cause pain and disease
- Magnesium is a "miracle mineral" that can heal the human body.
How serious is magnesium deficiency? According to a study that the World Health Organization did in 2009, the Average American only takes about half the Magnesium they took a century ago. By some estimates, up to 80 percent of Americans are not getting enough magnesium and may be deficient. Other research shows only about 25 percent of US adults are getting the recommended daily amount of 310 to 320 milligrams (mg) for women and 400 to 420 for men. This is pretty serious.
Tom Buys and Rebrands MG12
Let's go back to Tom Strader's story. After taking Magnesoothe Magnesium for about four weeks, Tom Strader woke up one morning without any pain! Imagine that! Without a doubt, He was ecstatic. He was so elated with the results that he cashed in his 401K and bought the company, renaming it Mg12. Today as CEO, Tom revels in the fact that he can now help other people live healthier lives, free of chronic pain.
Our mission at Mg¹² is to bring the all-natural magnesium-rich topical supplements into the homes of all that are deficient — AND 80% OF US ARE DEFICIENT IN MAGNESIUM — so we developed a more uniformed brand and user-friendly packaging.
