What is Magnesium Oil?

Magnesium oil facilitates topical delivery (through the skin) of magnesium chloride. It is well documented that most of the magnesium in oral capsule supplements is lost in the digestive system or eliminated by the body, not reaching the cells that need it. Our easy to use spray means that you can apply magnesium straight to tired muscles, sore joints or to your stomach for a sound sleep.

How is Magnesium Oil different from powders and tablets?

Magnesium oil can be applied straight to the skin for optimal absorption, rather than relying on the (often malfunctioning) digestive tract like powders and pills. By bypassing the digestive system, it goes straight into the bloodstream and is delivered to the cells that need it

Why Is Magnesium As A Supplement Important?

It is essential for over 300 different chemical reactions in the body, including maintaining your energy level, helping you relax, and sustaining the health of your heart and blood vessels. Unfortunately, in most of the developed world, magnesium deficiency is probably the most common nutritional deficiency. Because it has so many crucial functions, and because it appears to protect us from serious conditions that are most prevalent in the developed world, magnesium really is the “miracle mineral.”

How Does Magnesium Oil Help With Sleep?

Magnesium is vital for the function of GABA receptors, which exist across all areas of the brain and nervous system. GABA is a calming neurotransmitter that the brain requires to switch off; without it, we remain tense, our thoughts race and we lie in bed staring at the ceiling.

Magnesium is an essential mineral to support the growth of a healthy bub and our need for this mineral increases when we are pregnant.

Who is Magnesium Oil designed for?

The simple answer is everyone. Magnesium oil will not only assist with the treatment of cramps, spasms and aches, sleep, stress and general well-being, but deficiency has also been linked to decreased memory and learning ability. Increasing magnesium levels can improve cognitive function in children, the elderly and those experiencing high levels of stress - both emotionally and physically. Magnesium will assist athletic performance by reducing accumulation of lactic acid and reducing the perception of fatigue during strenuous exercise. Magnesium fights inflammation, raises antioxidant levels, and helps replenish energy stores in the muscle. It also calms the central nervous system, lowering heart rate and enabling restful sleep.

What does topical/transdermal mean?

Topical/Transdermal refers to elements passing through the skin; transdermal magnesium absorption therefor means that magnesium can pass into the epidermis, where they are quickly transported to cells throughout the body, avoiding problems with gastrointestinal irritation and diarrhoea, through bypassing the digestive system entirely where many nutrients are lost.
