Magnesium is one of the most important minerals for our health and wellness, required for over 300 biochemical reactions within our brains and bodies.
From supporting a healthy immune system to helping produce protein and energy, magnesium is a key component to helping our bodies perform at an optimal level. However, an estimated 20-40% of the population are actually magnesium deficient.
Our magnesium levels can be raised by eating a magnesium-rich diet (including leafy greens, whole grains, nuts, seeds and dairy), but there are other magnesium supplements you might want to consider if you’re finding it difficult to consume enough in your daily life.
We’ve previously spoken on the blog about soaking in magnesium flakes, and today we’re sharing another natural magnesium supplement - magnesium oil.
What is magnesium oil?
Magnesium oil is essentially an oil-like substance created from magnesium chloride flakes and water. While not technically an “oil”, the resulting liquid provides an easy-to-absorb form of magnesium that can be applied topically to the skin to safely raise magnesium levels in the body.
The difference between magnesium supplements and magnesium oil, is that magnesium oil can be applied transdermally to the body for optimal absorption. When consuming magnesium supplements orally, only 45% is actually absorbed by the body due to gut and digestive issues. Whereas when applying magnesium oil transdermally, the skin absorbs the magnesium it needs without those restrictions.
What are the benefits of magnesium oil?
With magnesium being one of the most important minerals for the daily function of our bodies, the benefits of raising your magnesium levels using magnesium oil are endless. Below are some of the benefits you may experience after using magnesium oil:
Relieving muscle aches, cramps and pains
Calming nerves and reducing anxiety
Boosting energy levels
Promoting deeper, more restful sleep
Supporting healthy heart function
Relieving headaches and migraines
Strengthening bones and promoting good bone health
Just to name a few!
