Magnesium is one of the most important minerals needed by every cell in the body. It is involved in as many as 300 metabolic processes. Most people do not get enough magnesium from a normal diet. Experts estimate that adults consume only 66% of the magnesium they need in an average diet. An interesting and less well-known fact is that magnesium deficiency can also be corrected by topically applying magnesium to the skin. If taken orally, it must first pass through the stomach and gastrointestinal tract before reaching the cells. Its bioavailability is greatly reduced by stomach acid and digestive enzymes.
A study by Dr Norman Shealy of the American Holistic Medical Association (AHMA) found that daily topical application of magnesium oil significantly increases magnesium levels in the body by up to 75%. In addition to magnesium (Mg ions), the oil also contains natural glycerin (which moisturises the skin), ORGANIC rosemary hydrolat (which is beneficial for muscles and joints) and ethanol extracts (tinctures) of arnica and witch’s claw, which help with a variety of ailments associated with painful and swollen joints.
Apply the oil to any part of the body and massage it into the wet or dry skin.
Spray the oil 5 to 20 times on different parts of the body (thighs, calves, décolleté, underarms, etc.) and massage it gently into the skin. One spray contains 10 mg of Mg2+ ions.
Itching may occur on initial use, but usually disappears with regular use. If the itching is bothersome, you can wipe or wash the skin 15 minutes after application. Avoid contact with eyes and wounds.
Magnesium is an interesting mineral that has been used for medicinal purposes since the 19th century. At that time, it was prescribed to neutralize various poisons, but was also used as a laxative and for treating problems associated with excessive stomach acid secretion, for which it is still used today. In our bodies, magnesium is an important building block of bones, cell membranes and the carriers of hereditary information – chromosomes. In addition to its structural functions, it also performs a wide range of vital metabolic functions. It is needed for cell-to-cell communication and is involved in hundreds of metabolic processes. It is actively involved in the formation of DNA, proteins and antioxidants (glutathione), as well as the main energy molecule in our bodies – ATP. The presence of magnesium is essential for the smooth conduction of nerve impulses, muscle contraction and a regular heartbeat.
