Magnesium

Magnesium impacts nearly all systems of the body. It is known to reduce muscle tension (important for the contraction and relaxation of muscles), lessen pain associated with migraine headaches, improve sleep, and address neurological disorders such as anxiety and depression. Without the presence of magnesium in the body, energy could not be produced or used in the cells, muscles could not contract and relax, and key hormones could not be synthesized to help control vital bodily functions.

Signs and Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency

Sleep problems, cramps, muscle tension, muscle soreness, including back aches, neck pain, tension headaches and jaw (TMJ) dysfunction, constipation; urinary spasms, menstrual cramps, difficulty swallowing or a lump in the throat-especially provoked by eating sugar, difficulty adjusting to oncoming bright headlights in the absence of eye disease, loud noise sensitivity, insomnia, anxiety, hyperactivity and restlessness, panic attacks, agoraphobia, premenstrual irritability, numbness, tingling, palpitations, heart arrhythmias, angina, high blood pressure and mitral valve prolapse.

Do you take Proton Pump Inhibitor drugs like Prevacid, Prilosec, AcipHex, and Nexium? Did your doctor warn you that they cause Magnesium deficiency (see Proton Pump Inhibitor drugs (PPIs): Drug Safety Communication – Low Magnesium Levels Can Be Associated With Long-Term Use)?

Why It is Difficult to Get Enough Magnesium from your Diet

Due to the refining process of many foods. the average American diet contains barely over 50% of the conservative US recommended daily allowance (RDA) for magnesium, and roughly three quarters of the population consumes a magnesium deficient diet. Refined oils and sugars have no magnesium and refined grains lose about 90% of their magnesium. Good dietary sources include whole grains, leafy green vegetables (spinach is a great source) as well as almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds, avocados, beans, cocao, mackeral, and halibut. Be aware that a diet high in fat may cause less magnesium to be absorbed, and cooking may decrease the magnesium content of food.

How to Apply Magnesium Oil

1. Spray on large areas. I suggest your thighs.

2. 8 sprays equals about 100 mg. The suggested dose is 300 mg per day for a 150 lb person (1.5 – 2mg/lb).

3. Spray 3-4 times, rub in well, and repeat. If you use too many sprays at once, you will waste the spray as it will drip off.

4. The spray may cause a slight tingling of your skin the first few times you use it. It can be left on for 20 minutes and showered off or you can leave it on all day.
