What is Magnesium good for?
Magnesium can help with the removal of toxins and heavy metals at the cellular level. It can also help to relax and balance the nervous system which is often under stress due to the pace of modern life.
An abundant element on our planet, magnesium is also present in every organ in the human body and helps to regulate the activity of over 300 enzymes.
Magnesium is an important mineral to achieve healthy muscle cells and to quickly relieve muscle pain and reduce cramps related to magnesium deficiency, fatigue and stress. Magnesium helps the immune system because a healthy immune system is driven by white blood cells which require high magnesium levels.
Magnesium is directly linked to the body’s production of DHEA, often called the ‘Feel Good Hormone’ which declines with age.
The increasing rate of magnesium deficiency is becoming more common due to lifestyle factors that deplete our magnesium levels such as lack of sleep, too much stress or too much alcohol, caffeine and sugar. On top of that, many natural sources of magnesium such as those found in soil, are becoming depleted due to over-farming and high pesticide use.
Factors that reduce the body’s use of bioavailable magnesium
Magnesium can be taken into your body in three ways:
- Dietary magnesium through the foods we eat
- Orally through magnesium supplements
- Transdermal magnesium, applied directly to the skin
Magnesium is eliminated from the body in two ways:
- As waste through the gastrointestinal ‘GI’ tract (mouth, esophagus, stomach and intestines),
- Filtered by the kidneys and excreted
Magnesium that isn’t eliminated by the body, is bioavailable. If you don’t take magnesium in you can’t use it however, at the same time, if not enough magnesium is absorbed by the GI tract or too much is filtered through the kidneys, you can’t use it.
Some health conditions, diuretics and antibiotics can affect optimal kidney function leading to magnesium being excreted rather than absorbed.
The amount of magnesium absorbed through the GI tract is also dependant on your body’s ability to breakdown foods containing magnesium and absorb it through the intestines. Age, stress, a poor diet and some health conditions can also limit absorption of magnesium through the GI tract.
How do i get Magnesium?
The recommended daily intake of magnesium for men and women is:
Men: 400 – 420mg
Women: 310 – 360mg
Magnesium is found in some foods, athough the amounts present in many foods are declining due to poor soil quality, over farming and pesticides.
The water in our oceans is also a really good source of magnesium and trace minerals, but for those of us who don’t have daily access to a beach or who live in climates that don’t allow a 20 minute swim without catching hypothermia, transdermal magnesium can be the easiest and most effective way to increase magnesium levels.
Transderal magnesium includes magnesium oil, lotions and scrubs. Some people who use magnesium oil sprays or lotions find that it can create a tingling sensation that they do not enjoy. Using a body scrub with magnesium is an easy way to get your daily dose of magnesium, everyday in the shower without the tingle or burn.
One of the other major benefits of using a body scrub with magnesium is that it allows your body’s magnesium levels to increase over time.
