Need relief from muscular aches, cramps and pains, headaches, insomnia and more? By simply increasing your magnesium levels, you can reduce these symptoms and promote a healthier body and mind.
What Does Magnesium do?
Magnesium is especially important for
Better bone health
Lowers blood pressure
Reduces headaches and migraines
Better heart health
Less stress and anxiety
Reduction muscle aches and pains
Every single cell in the human body needs adequate magnesium to function. Strong bones and teeth, balanced hormones, a healthy nervous and cardiovascular system and much more depend on adequate magnesium levels.
Are You Low in Magnesium?
The answer is likely 'yes' in todays world. Low magnesium levels are often diagnosed by symptoms alone as blood tests are relatively ineffective in gauging magnesium levels, as less than 1% of magnesium is in the blood. The following symptoms can point to low magnesium levels.
Inability to sleep or insomnia
Headaches & migraines
Coldness in fingers and toes
Poor dental health
If you have any of these symptoms and especially if you have more than 5, it is highly likely that you could benefit from magnesium supplementation.
How Can I Increase My Magnesium Levels?
Eating leafy green vegetables, sea vegetables, kelp and especially nettle are good dietary sources of magnesium, though if you have a deficiency, it will be difficult to raise our levels through diet alone. As such, many people ingest tablets or powdered forms of magnesium to supplement the diet. But what if I can show you an even easier way, one which can be included in your everyday skin routines. I personally prefer topical magnesium, applied directly to the skin and I'd love to tell you why.
Topical Versus Ingestion
The skin is the body's largest organ and so the best way to supplement with magnesium, in my opinion, is by using it on the skin. This is not only the safest way, since the body will only use what is needed, but the most effective. When taken internally, the magnesium has to pass through the digestive system and kidneys and can at times be more difficult to absorb. In addition, when using magnesium to treat symptoms such as muscular aches and pains, applying it directly onto the area affected has an almost immediate response.
Magnesium Magic Balm
I started to create Magnesium Magic Balm because my close friend asked if I could make a topical magnesium supplement to assist her daughter, who had high anxiety but couldn't swallow a pill. This was the start of something wonderful when we also found it to be so useful for aching muscles. In using it for aches and pains, I then found that when I applied to my tight feet at night before bed (well actually, my husband rubs my feet) I had a better quality of sleep. And so 6 years ago my first Magnesium Magic Balm was created.
Beyond that, the range now includes Magnesium Magic Spray, which my husband prefers when he is away at work, as it is easy to spray and go.
Then around a year or so ago, another friend asked for a non greasy, lighter lotion. This is used as her everyday body lotion, twice a day to deliver her recommended dosage of magnesium and so Magnesium Magic Lotion is also available.
While writing this blog I had a beautiful message from a Magnesium Magic customer who has become a friend. She has given me permission to share. She wrote:
"I wanted to let you know, that three days ago, I decided to use the magnesium balm on my feet at bedtime. I normally only use it on my hip and shoulder at bedtime. For the first time in months, I slept soundly all night. I didn't wake once, and felt like I'd had a real deep rest. Obviously, I continued with this with the same results each night. I wanted to let you know that I am so grateful to your amazing product. I was quite stressed about my lack of deep sleep and now this has made me feel amazing. Thank you.
I just love hearing stories like this, so please share yours with me too.
Magnesium really is Magic.
