No matter how young or old you are, everyone can and should feel good and strong; physically and mentally. Many conditions and ailments can be relieved with a natural remedy. Read here what makes magnesium an essential and important ingredient for your body, and how it has helped me and how it can help you.
What exactly is magnesium?
Magnesium, like many other minerals, is one of the essential nutrients in our biochemistry that aid enzymes, the workers of your body, to facilitate action. Magnesium plays an important role in your energy level, building proteins and supporting your muscles and bones.
Magnesium is a nutrient. It cannot be produced by the body itself and must be taken in through your diet or applied externally. It naturally can be found in bones, muscles, blood and all organs of your body. This clearly shows the importance of this mineral.
- Magnesium Is Vital.
Our Bodies Cannot Function Without Magnesium -
Magnesium is involved in the following functions in the body
• Preservation of bones and teeth
• Healthy muscle and nerve functions
• Normal energy metabolism
• Protein production
• Reduction of tiredness and exhaustion
• Healthy mental function
• Electrolyte balance
My personal experience using magnesium
I took tablet supplements; 1 tablet (400 mg) a day because I had spells of cramps in my calves and my feet. I added calcium (800 mg) and vitamin B12 I picked up from the drugstore, too. I felt pretty good and fit during this time but continued having cramps from time to time. I was always tired and had cold hands and feet. Doctors had always told me that my blood pressure was too low and that there was nothing to be done about it, that I had to live with these symptoms.
I stopped taking these supplements at some point thinking that it didn't work. Through a coincidence, I came across magnesium oil. Unlike the tablets, the magnesium oil was applied transdermally. I noticed an improvement pretty quickly.
Magnesium oil is the liquid version of the tablets or capsules. Here, the magnesium is supplied to the body through the skin. This ensures that the mineral can be absorbed by the body at 100 percent. A higher concentration can be distributed in the blood and thus throughout the whole body, where it can have its positive effects.
What does magnesium deficiency mean and how does it affect our health?
Patients are usually not tested for mineral deficiencies these days. The complete blood count (homeroom * 1), carried out by the doctor, does not show these values. Because if vitamins and minerals are so important for the human organism, I highly recommend that your provider include a check of these values as soon as something is wrong with your body or mind.
Unhealthy diet and stress are the most common causes of deficiency
We all know that we rarely get this important mineral from food anymore. This can be due to bad eating habits as well as a low-mineral quality of the food. About 15% of Americans already have a serious magnesium deficiency.
To get the recommended daily requirement, we would have to eat 7-9 bananas a day. Bananas are among the largest suppliers of magnesium. The National Institutes of Health’s Office of Dietary Supplements recommends:
There are several reasons for an increased consumption of magnesium. Athletes have a much higher need. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers as well. Even in exceptional stressful situations and people with certain diseases, such as diabetes or inflammatory bowel diseases (impaired magnesium absorption in the intestine), they can contribute to an increased need for magnesium. Men generally have a higher need.
If we suffer from a deficiency, the body automatically corrects the level of magnesium by releasing it from our bones. This release keeps the magnesium level in the blood constant. But this process can damage the body and cause a wide variety of symptoms. Signs of magnesium deficiency include tense or stiff muscles. Or cold hands and feet. Feelings of fatigue. A deficiency can have many faces and very different health consequences.
If magnesium is so important to the body and responsible for so many tasks, should we not ask if our health problems may be a result of magnesium deficiency? Yes. And that is what I began investigating over the years.
Magnesium oil should not be missing in any medicine cabinet. It can be used for:
3. Joint pain
6. Muscle stiffness
7. Muscle spasms and strains
9. Chronic fatigue
11. PMS and menopausal symptoms
12. Sports injuries
There are other areas of application where magnesium oil can be of great help
Since I've been treating myself with it, I don't have cold feet or hands as often. I don't get cramps anymore and every time I have a stiff neck it works to attenuate the tension. Living in a colder area of the mountains in SW Virginia, my arthritis in my hands flairs up. Applying magnesium oil daily has reduced the swelling in my knuckles.
Magnesium oil also promotes healthy sleep. It relaxes and helps reduce stress. For this, use Magnesium Oil Calm with lavender oil & MSM before going to bed and let it soak in overnight. The scent of lavender promotes calmness and relaxation. A massage on the calves and feet can be very beneficial here.
Teeth and gums also benefit from magnesium oil. It is important for mineralization. If you suffer from bleeding gums or sensitive teeth, it can be used as a mouthwash. Simply mix one or two drops or a sprayer of oil in a glass with 20 ml of water, gargle for at least 60 seconds and spit out the mixture. Breath is also freshened. (from 16 years). For this, use Magnesium Oil Natural 100% pure. If you want, you can also spray the oil under your armpits. There it works like a deodorant and regulates sweat production.
How to use
Since our body cannot produce magnesium itself, it has to be applied externally. The options of taking it are orally or transdermally, through the skin. In my experience, transdermal is the most effective variant. In my own experience, I feel best when I rub the oil on my legs or calves 2-3 times a week.
Anyone who has pain or other physical problems such as arthritis or osteoporosis can rub the oil directly onto the joints several times a day in the required dose without hesitation. The magnesium soothes the muscles around the painful areas. The pain subsides, for this use Magnesium Oil Pain Ease, with Tumeric, Ginger and MSM.
How to apply
Step 1: Prepare the skin - clean it, dry it off well after a bath or shower.
Step 2: Shake the bottle. Spray oil in the palms of the hands, rub into skin. The longer the better
Step 3: After 15 minutes, wash the skin with warm water or, if used before bedtime, let it soak in overnight
Step 4: Moisturize the skin after application.
GOOD TO KNOW: the more the oil is rubbed in, the more the skin can absorb the magnesium. It is not about a larger amount, but about a longer exposure time!
Side effects one can live with
In some cases, the main areas treated may itch. If this happens, just dab some water on the areas. This will end the itching very quickly. I do not recommend applying the magnesium oil to sensitive skin areas or open wounds.
Sometimes it happens that the skin peels easily in the beginning. This removes old skin flakes (peeling effect). That also passes quickly. Providing the skin with moisture helps.
We at Klemons. think one can live with these kinds of side effects. We are very happy and grateful for our magnesium oil.
