Magnesium, the key mineral for our bodies.
Magnesium is critical for over 300 bodily functions and offers a wide variety of therapeutic benefits. It is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body and is required for 1200 out of 1600 bodily functions.
It is used for energy production; regulates our metabolism and immune system; helps control and repair muscle function; calms the nervous system; supports our cardiovascular system; strengthens teeth and bone formation; lowers inflammation; regulates sleep and helps to calm stress and anxiety.
Magnesium deficiency, also known as hypomagnesemia, is extremely common and an often overlooked health problem. Reasons for magnesium depletion can include dietary, environmental, and medical-related factors. Despite its prevalence, magnesium deficiencies often go unnoticed, undiagnosed, and untreated by health professionals, even when symptoms are present.
Unfortunately, our modern farming techniques have depleted our soils of this vital mineral, meaning that our usual sources are nowhere near as rich as they use to be. Most of us are simply not getting the necessary daily amount of magnesium required to function effectively, putting us at risk of a host of ailments. Certain conditions such as stress, poor diet, diabetes, some medications, alcohol consumption, during pregnancy or following intense physical activity will more readily deplete magnesium levels. Magnesium is arguably the most important mineral in the body, which is why magnesium deficiency can be such an issue.
Key magnesium deficiency symptoms :
- Muscle, joint or nerve pain
- Headaches, migraines
- Muscle twitches and cramps
- Depression, irritability and anxiety
- Digestive issues
- Circulatory problems
- Cold feet and hands
- Osteoporosis and bone fragility

Why choose Transdermal Magnesium?
Oral magnesium supplements taken as pills, powders, capsules or liquid solutions can cause digestive system irritation, inflammation, cramping and diarrhoea. Stomach acids significantly decrease the effectiveness of oral magnesium intake.
Transdermal magnesium bypasses the digestive system and can be applied directly to the area(s) where it is needed most. This relatively recent supplementation method is proven to be the most effective way to safely raise your body’s magnesium level, delivering magnesium through the skin for rapid absorption directly into the cells.
