In a latest government estimate, 68% of Americans are deficient in magnesium. Are you one of them? Here are the symptoms.
Tension headache or migraine, agitation, anxiety and depression, muscle cramps/spasm/pain, restless leg syndrome (RLS), sleep disorders, irritability, nausea and vomiting, abnormal heart rhythms, low blood pressure, confusion, hyperventilation, insomnia, seizures, osteoporosis.
According to National Institutes of Health: Magnesium helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis.
Oral supplementation of magnesium is affected by numerous things in your gut – no matter what type of oral magnesium you use. Because all magnesium taken orally is potentially laxative, the ability to absorb magnesium through the GI tract is limited by shortened transit time.
Oral magnesium can be inconvenient as well, due to the amount needed for adequate dosage. Adequate magnesium is typically not added to multi-vitamins in an attempt to reduce the size and dosage, and magnesium supplements themselves can be large.
Considering these difficulties and the numerous factors that may negatively impact oral magnesium absorption in the GI tract, topical magnesium shows clear benefits.
- Is safe, convenient, affordable and effective.
- Allows you to maximize the amount you’re getting daily without having to worry about diarrhea, digestion, or swallowing additional pills several times a day.
- Is especially helpful with pain and can be applied directly to the trouble area with immediate results, rather than waiting for it to work its way through your GI tract.
you’ve probably heard of one popular form of transdermal magnesium delivery, which is an Epsom salts bath – commonly used for decreasing muscle soreness.
Epsom salts actually deliver magnesium sulfate, which can help with post-workout recovery. However, magnesium chloride is even more effective than Epsom salts.
Scientists at OM Botanical successfully infused their body butters with high dose of magnesium chloride obtained from dead sea, the most absorbable form of magnesium. Resulting body butters not only hydrate your skin but also provide a daily dose of magnesium absorbed trans-dermally.
OM Botanical offers three types of magnesium infused body Butters.
Rejuvenating body butter for a normal skin
Soothing body butter for dry, irritated skin
Firming body butter for a mature skin.
From pain killers to anti-depressants to hormone replacement, countless people have turned to transdermal medicine, whether because they can’t swallow pills, their digestive systems are impaired, or simply due to personal preference.
Taking magnesium through skin addresses all of these concerns.
