Some Facts about Magnesium
Approximately 80 percent of people have low levels of magnesium. According to Norman Shealy, MD, Ph.D, an American neurosurgeon and a pioneer in pain medicine, “Every known illness is associated with a magnesium deficiency and it’s the missing cure to many diseases.” Not only does magnesium help regulate calcium, potassium and sodium, but it’s essential for cellular health and a critical component of over 300 biochemical functions in the body“.
Even glutathione, your body’s most powerful antioxidant that has even been called “the master antioxidant,” requires magnesium for its synthesis. Unfortunately, most people are not aware of this. That’s why millions suffer daily from magnesium deficiency without even knowing it. How about you? Are you at risk for Magnesium Deficiency?
How important is Magnesium?
Magnesium really is everywhere in the body – it’s the 4th most abundant mineral. It’s involved in hundreds of different biochemical reactions and enzyme systems. It supports processes like protein synthesis, cell growth, and energy production. It has roles in nerve function, muscle control, and blood pressure. Even blood sugar regulation depends on magnesium.
Magnesium works within our cells — the powerhouses, factories and regulators of the body’s systems. As it is a necessary part of hundreds of biochemical reactions occurring constantly inside our cells, Magnesium presence or absence affects the brain, the muscles, the heart and blood vessels.
Causes of Magnesium Deficiency
- Soil depletion, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and the chemicals in our food
- Digestive diseases
- Chronic disease and medication use is at an all-time high.
Magnesium Deficiency Symptoms
Many people may have Magnesium Deficiency and not even know it. Here are some key symptoms to look out for that could indicate if you are deficient:
- Leg Cramps
- Muscle Pain/Fibromyalgia
- High Blood Pressure
- Type II Diabetes
- Migraine, Headaches
The four most prominent at-risk groups include:
- People with gastrointestinal complaints
- People with type II diabetes
- The elderly
- People struggling with alcohol dependence
Magnesium Supplementation: Inner or Outer?
Several forms of magnesium supplements are available (Magnesium Chelate, Magnesium Citrate, Magnesium Glycinate, Magnesium Threonate…). But all are in tablets or capsules form and have to pass through the stomach. Unfortunately the action of stomach acids and digestive enzymes often reduces uptake and bioavailability. Therefore very little of the Magnesium may actually reach the bloodstream. The best alternative is the “Transdermal Application”.
Transdermal application (Magnesium Oil)
The best way to avoid the risk of Magnesium Deficiency is to use Magnesium oil. Bypassing the stomach and liver means a much greater percentage of the active ingredient goes straight into the bloodstream. In many cases transdermal methods are used to help avoid potential side effects such as stomach upset or drowsiness. The full potential for transdermal medicine has not been utilized to any great extent by modern allopathic medicine. However it has been practiced for thousands of years in hot springs around the world. The traditional method of introducing magnesium to the body through oral supplements is substantially less effective than the transdermal route. But it plays an even more critical role in applications to soft tissue.
Transdermal delivery allows for the liver and stomach to be bypassed. Therefore a much greater percentage of the active ingredient reaching the bloodstream and more specifically to the site of application.
Magnesium Oil is the ultimate daily ritual to help develop a strong internal fitness, to stay resilient to both physical and emotional stress. And in maintaining an alkaline condition.
