Sadly, many adults are Magnesium deficient and given Magnesium plays such an integral role to our health and well-being, it is concerning.
What does Magnesium do for you?
“Magnesium is necessary for the normal function of over 300 enzyme systems, for muscle relaxation, immune function, cardiac function, clotting, nerve conduction etc. I cannot think of a bodily department in which magnesium is not essential. It prevents heart disease, cancer, blood pressure, kidney stones and improves energy, sleep etc.” explains Dr. Mayhill.
Magnesium deficiencies in the modern world have been attributed to environmental, agricultural factors and dietary trends also, but it’s not all doom and gloom!
The good news is that Magnesium deficiency can be rectified, by taking magnesium supplements orally or by applying it to your body (transdermal). We need magnesium in fairly large quantities, so transdermal is a great way to help boost your levels and avoid side effects like diarrhoea, which effect some people when taking oral supplements.
Additionally, by applying Magnesium to your body you are not only helping to increase Magnesium levels but you can also help to relieve symptoms like Restless Legs, Cramps, pain from Arthritis, Anxiety, Headaches, Eczema and Psoriasis.
At MiSMo we have created a body lotion/gel called Magnesium Gel Forte that contains Magnesium Chloride, fortified with MSM. Both minerals are highly effective nutritional supplements which help ease pain. Magnesium Gel Forte is designed to work as a body lotion while delivering mineral benefits. One teaspoon (5 grams) contains 1.2grams of Magnesium Chloride which is a great boost for your body. MSM is an anti-inflammatory which also contributes greatly to pain relief.
Alternatively, MiSMo also stocks Magnesium Chloride Powder. Produced from pristine sea water, this natural mineral can be taken orally or made up into your very own Magnesium Oil concentrate.
How to make your own Magnesium Oil.
To make the oil simply add 50g of the powder to 50ml warm drinkable distilled water. This makes a potent and very effective mixture that can be put into a spray bottle and applied to the body, with similar results to our Magnesium Gel.
Given that Magnesium is considered according to Dr Jerry Aikawa, “the most important mineral to man and all living organisms,” and directly contributes to both our mental and physical well-being, it seems an easy decision to start checking and maintaining our own levels.
Naturally, we always recommend that anyone introducing a new supplement into their routine consult with a medical professional prior to starting - and it is worth doing sooner rather than later as incorporating Magnesium into your daily routine could very well be the change you are looking for in your life.
