Magnesium oil isn't actually an oil. It's name originated because of the oily texture when magnesium chloride is added to Demineralised water and dissolved.
Magnesium has long been a remedy for a number of ailments, such as decreasing stress, maintaining a sense of well-being and improving sleep, as well as preventing muscle cramps, reducing inflammation and muscular and neurological pain.
More recent studies have shown that magnesium can also boost performance levels, improve skin quality and even help hypertension and diabetes.
Magnesium ions are most commonly found in our bones, but are also very important elements in enzymes that help break down food into energy. Often it is the key element required to unlock the benefits in therapies and remedies that don't seem to be working.
Magnesium has a big role in the synthesis of essential molecules such as RNA, DNA and proteins. In bones, cell membranes and chromosomes, magnesium makes up a large percentage of the structural base. Magnesium plays a large part in balancing the body via nutrient reactions and interactions and absorption.
Magnesium is key to calcium absorption. They have a special relationship with each other in the body, if you have a calcium deficiency, then you also will most likely have a magnesium deficiency. A magnesium deficiency can be a precursor to later calcium issues (osteoporosis), because of the negative affect on calcium uptake. Calcium food sources are the most effective when eaten with magnesium-rich foods.
Magnesium deficiency has been linked to a number of negative affects, such as:
- Gastrointestinal issues
- Poor Exercise Performance
- Migraines and headaches
- Decreased insulin sensitivity
- Metabolic Syndrome
- Coronary Heart Disease
- Hypertension and cardiovascular disease
So how do you minimise your risk of the above health concerns?
It has been found that magnesium, despite being available in many dietary sources, is not best absorbed orally. Magnesium taken orally is affected by a number of factors in your gut. Magnesium can also act as a laxative, which reduces the time the mineral can be absorbed whilst in the body.
A study conducted in 2010 where patients using transdermal magnesium therapy saw increases in cellular magnesium levels of 25.2 percent (average). Over a period of 12 weeks. Which is very impressive. Note that this was conducted using a magnesium oil spray. Our Mg12 Cell Restore magnesium body cream has 4 times the absorption of standard magnesium oil.
