MAGNESIUM - The Master Mineral!

Magnesium is the most critical mineral required for electrical stability of every cell in the body. It is the second most abundant element inside human cells and the fourth most abundant positively charged ion in the human body. 1 2 Within the body’s cells, it serves literally hundreds of functions and regulates over 300 biochemical reactions in the body through their role as enzyme co-factors. Magnesium is required to give the “ spark of life” to metabolic functions involving the creation of energy and its transport (ATP, the body’s fundamental energy currency), and the creation of proteins – the nucleic acid chemistry of life – RNA and DNA in all living organisms.  Magnesium is involved in detoxification and protein synthesis. It keeps your heart beating regularly and your muscles and nervous system working properly. It supports a healthy immune system, maintains healthy skin, regulates blood sugar levels and helps to maintain strong bones and healthy teeth by aiding calcium absorption.

NB. This product is completely safe and very beneficial for breastfeeding & pregnant women.

MAGNESIUM BODY BUTTER  vs  ORAL SUPPLEMENTATION

The skin is a living, breathing organ that holds tremendous potential for re-mineralizing a magnesium starved body.  The cons to oral magnesium include:

  • May cause diarrhea, as in the case of magnesium sulphate (Epsom salts)

  • Can’t be used to target specific areas of the body.

  • Difficult to absorb; much of the magnesium is typically lost during digestion, as much as 96%. If you have digestive issues and an overburdened liver this greatly diminishes any chances of the body replenishing your magnesium levels.

 Prescription drugs also interfere with absorption. These include diuretics; antibiotics; cortisone/steroid drugs; laxatives and chemo therapeutics  .Other factors that affect oral  absorption and as well as  deplete magnesium levels are alcohol, nicotine, carbonated drinks, refined sugars, stress, artificial and processed foods, coffee and lack of sleep.

Topical magnesium  is extremely bioavailable and goes directly into the skin and underlying tissues. It completely bypasses the GI tract with little to no loss and goes right to work. There are rare cases that you may experience a burning or itching sensation, this is an indication of the level of deficiency in your body. Keep applying and overtime it will diminish. Your body will absorb only what it needs so you don’t have to worry about over dosing.
