Why use topical magnesium oil when there is magnesium in food?

Though it’s possible and preferable to get magnesium from a variety of sources, studies show that most Americans have magnesium deficient diets, with one in five getting less than half the RDA for magnesium in their daily diets.

Oral supplementation, on the other hand, is affected by numerous things in your gut – no matter what type of oral magnesium you use.  Because all magnesium taken orally is potentially laxative, the ability to absorb magnesium through the GI tract is limited by shortened transit time.

Oral magnesium can be inconvenient as well, due to the amount needed for adequate dosage. Adequate magnesium is typically not added to multi-vitamins in an attempt to reduce the size and dosage, and magnesium supplements themselves can be large.

Considering these difficulties and the numerous factors that may negatively impact oral magnesium absorption in the GI tract, topical magnesium shows clear benefits.

A Cornerstone for Achieving Vibrant Health

From pain killers to anti-depressants to hormone replacement, countless people have turned to trans dermal medicine, whether because they can’t swallow pills, their digestive systems are impaired, or simply due to personal preference.

Using magnesium transdermally addresses all of these concerns.

Topical magnesium:
  • Is safe, convenient, affordable and effective.
  • Allows you to maximize the amount you’re getting daily without having to worry about diarrhea, digestion, or swallowing additional pills several times a day.
  • Is especially helpful with pain and can be applied directly to the trouble area with immediate results, rather than waiting for it to work its way through your GI tract.
So long as a molecule or ion is small enough to pass through the porous surface of the skin, it will eventually end up in your blood stream.  Topical magnesium takes advantage of the absorptive properties of body’s largest organ, putting it to work for you in the form of a simple spray, soak, or massage.

The skin is a living, breathing organ — the most efficient organ for detoxification with tremendous potential for re-mineralizing the body. What happens when combine the human body’s most well functioning organ with one of the most life giving minerals available? A cornerstone for achieving vibrant health.
