Magnesium is a critical macro nutrient for human health. It is essential to more than 350 cellular processes, some of which include muscle & nerve function, heart rhythm, and peristalsis (muscular contractions of the digestive system). To be deficient in magnesium guarantees a sub-optimal level of health. Severe lack of magnesium can seriously impair all bodily functions.
Magnesium is a major component of your muscles and bones, with approximately 50% of total body magnesium stored in the bones. Magnesium is required for your body to properly absorb and regulate calcium, and thus maintain strong bones & ligaments.
The human body runs on electricity. Magnesium powers the movement of electrically charged ions through the blood and across nerve cell membranes. This movement of electricity allows your muscles to move, your heart to beat, your breath to come in and out.
Healthy levels of magnesium maintain cellular communication in the body. A deficiency of magnesium causes a disturbance to the flow of this electricity through the nervous system, producing a great deal of pain and illness.
There are several ways to acquire magnesium with varied levels of success. In order for consumed magnesium to make a difference in your health it must actually be absorbed and then delivered where it is required.
Eating it in food, supplementing with pills, and injecting it are the most common methods, though there are a number of problems associated with each of these methods, such as slow results, high costs, and discomfort. The quickest, most reliable, cost-effective and comfortable way to obtain high levels of easily absorbed magnesium is by absorbing it through the skin (transdermal) from the Magnesium gel.
Magnesium Common Questions
Q1. How quickly does Magnesium absorb into my skin? Will it smell?
A1. Magnesium absorbs almost immediately upon contact. We recommend leaving the magnesium on the skin for a minimum of 25 minutes to ensure the body gets a chance to utilize as much magnesium as possible. Massaging it into your skin will speed up the rate of absorption. Magnesium has no odor.
Q2. What is the maximum daily dose?
A2. There is no limit. Transdermal magnesium is largely absorbed and used by your cells on location.
Q3. When should I use Magnesium?
A3. Magnesium Infusion can be safely used any time of the day as desired.
Q4. Where is the best place on the body to apply Magnesium?
A4. On your armpits, behind your knees, on top of your feet, inside of arms, and hips. Also, any area where you are experiencing pain.
Magnesium chloride is hydrophilic. This means that it is magnetically attracted to water at a molecular level. This property allows for easy absorption and bioavailability in your body. Minor health issues exhibit positive reactions very soon after application, while chronic and severe issues may require up to a month of use to experience noticeable improvement. It is recommended to use magnesium continuously since it is missing from our diet and needed by our bodies more than ever before.
