Why do we need to supplement magnesium? Most adults in Australia and USA are deficient in this precious mineral. Changes in diet and the way we live has contributed to the reduction in our bodies.
Magnesium comes in many forms and is used both orally and transdermally. Transdermal use means applying to the skin. Used this way magnesium is absorbed through the skin.
Benefits are huge with transdermal application. This is the best way to boost you body's store of magnesium. When magnesium is taken orally it needs to stay in the body for around 12 hours to work.
Unfortunately, magnesium taken orally can pass through the body through bowel movements fairly quickly, less than 12 hours. When applied to the skin, magnesium bypasses the digestive system and stays in the body going to the places most in need of supplementation.
Choices of using transdermal Magnesium are:
Magnesium Gel Forte - a lotion;
Magnesium Oil: dissolving Magnesium Chloride powder in purified water and applying to skin
Baths or foot soaks: Adding Magnesium Chloride to your bath or in a foot spa or bucket of hot water
