Magnesium, The Vital Nutrient And Why You Need It

Magnesium Gel with Aloe Vera

Up to 90% of the population in the US is magnesium deficient.  Magnesium is one of the most important, life sustaining minerals needed by the body.  It supports the health of almost every cell and organ, especially the heart, muscles and kidneys. Magnesium is required for many natural processes that occur in the body. It activates enzymes, helps with energy production and regulating calcium levels in addition to copper, zinc, potassium, vitamin D and other nutrients.

 

Magnesium occurs naturally in foods like, green leafy vegetables, chocolate, nuts and whole grains.   But, do we get enough of the vital nutrient from our foods?  The answer is no.   Other things contribute to low magnesium levels such as, drinking too much coffee, soda and alcohol.  Viruses causing vomiting and diarrhea deplete magnesium from the body.  Health disorders such as IBS, diabetes, pancreatitis, hyperthyroidism, kidney disease and also the use of diuretics all lead to magnesium deficiencies.  Stress, excessive sweating and heavy menstrual periods also contribute to a loss of magnesium. 

 

Magnesium deficiency symptoms include anxiety, depression, headaches, restless leg syndrome, irritability, sleep problems, low blood pressure, muscle spasms and weakness, seizures, poor nail growth, abnormal heart rhythms, hyperventilation and even confusion.   Supplementing using Magnesium Gel with Aloe helps these conditions and others like, asthma, depression, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, PMS and migraines. Applied externally, it improves muscle pain and cramping, while encouraging regeneration of tissues. When used regularly it is quite effective in increasing flexibility, endurance and overall strength.  It also helps with adrenal fatigue.  When our adrenal glands produce excess cortisol in stressful situations, it uses up the body’s magnesium stores.  Regular use of magnesium topically, may assist in keeping adrenals and cortisol in better balance.  The use of topical magnesium gel is one of the best ways to quell hyperactivity and nervousness.   During pregnancy, illnesses, athletic training and post surgery, the need for magnesium increases.

 

Magnesium Gel with Aloe is a concentrated magnesium chloride, which is absorbed by the body quickly and easily through the skin.  It is this form of magnesium that helps protect us from metals like aluminum, mercury lead and cadmium.  Most people use an oral form of magnesium which is the least effective way to increase magnesium at the cellular level, because it can take up to 3 years for oral magnesium to increase cellular levels.  According to

Dr. C. Norman Shealy, “Most people are deficient in magnesium and transdermal is the best and fastest way to use it.  Furthermore, transdermal is the only way which has been proven to raise DHEA.” 

 

Magnesium Gel with Aloe is absorbed easily and quickly into the body.  Along with the benefits of magnesium you also get the healing properties of Aloe Vera.  Aloe Vera is a moisturizer and cell proliferant (grows new cells).  It softens and revitalizes chapped, moisture-deprived skin while helping normal skin retain moisture leaving it soft and supple.  Apply it to damp or dry skin and let air dry for best results.  For optimal absorption, apply to the feet and toes, hands and fingers and virtually any place else on the body.  Once it dries the magnesium is fully absorbed. Any way you’d like, it is the best source for getting magnesium into your body.
