The macro-mineral magnesium
Magnesium is a vital mineral that is essential to our body and its functions.
It is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions and plays several important roles in the health of your body and brain. Without it, our bodies would not produce energy, muscles would be unable to contract and relax and hormones could not be made to help control vital bodily functions.
Today our soils and foods contain less magnesium so including this Magnesium Oil in your life boosts intra-cellular magnesium levels, vital for overall health.
The European Food Safety Authority has acknowledged magnesium as a nutrient that supports metabolism, maintenance of bone health, muscle function, nerve function, reduction of tiredness and fatigue, reduction of bruising and joint ache, and normal function of the heart muscles.
How to get more magnesium?
Magnesium deficiency could affect up to 800,000 people in the UK so it’s important for us increase our levels of magnesium wherever possible. The three best ways to do this is to eat more magnesium rich foods, take a high-quality magnesium supplement and use our magnesium oil.
Eat magnesium rich foods
- Dark chocolate: 1 square has 95mg of magnesium
- Avocados: 1 medium has 58mg of magnesium
- Almonds: 1 ounce has 80mg of almonds
- Black beans: ½ cup had 60mg of magnesium
- Tofu: half a cup of tofu has 37mg of magnesium
- Pumpkin seeds: 1/8 cup has 92mg of magnesium
- Whole grains: 1 cup has 160mg of magnesium
- Spinach: 1 cup of boiled spinach has 157mg of magnesium
- Quinoa: 1 cup cooked has 118mg of magnesium
Take a top-quality magnesium supplement two times a day. One with breakfast and one at dinner.
Use our magnesium oil
Directly applying magnesium oil to the skin has a rapid absorption rate, quicker than ingesting an oral supplement. It goes straight to your bloodstream and is delivered to the cells that need it the most, avoiding the digestive system which has a far less absorption rate.
