How it works

How can applying Magnesium Topically benefit me and my health?

Let me explain..

Although Magnesium is found in a variety of foods ranging from leafy greens to nuts, seeds, and beans, many people don’t get enough in their diet.. Magnesium oil when applied topically to the skin is easy to absorb and it may even raise the level of this nutrient in the body. By doing so can aid many health benefits such as;

1. Aids in reducing Anxiety & Depression.
This relaxing mineral may help you cope with stress and anxiety. Magnesium chloride suppresses the release of stress hormones, prevents their entry into the brain and regulates the nervous system.
2. Get a better Sleep
Magnesium increases GABA in the body, a neurotransmitter that promotes unwinding and slowing down. Magnesium plays a vital role in how in how our body manages its sleep cycle. Among others side effects, a Magnesium deficiency can lead to restless muscles that can not only keep you awake at night but also lead to aches and pains. Applying MgBody Magnesium onto the soles of your feet before sleep or if you wake will help calm the nervous system so you can gain a deeper and more restorative sleep.

3. Prevents Asthma
Rubbing magnesium on your throat, chest and back is beneficial for individuals with asthma. Being a muscle relaxant, magnesium chloride prevents shrinking and tightening of airways and reduces symptoms of asthma.
It further blocks the production of pro-inflammatory compounds, which are responsible for triggering an asthma attack.
Hence, the anti-inflammatory and broncho-dilating effects of magnesium oil are encouraged as an adjuvant therapy for individuals with asthma.

4. Relieves Migraines
Studies show a link between recurring migraine attacks and magnesium deficiency. Low levels of magnesium in the brain can promote the hyperactivity of the neurotransmitters and brain chemicals. It also causes excitation of the nerves, which leads to headaches. Magnesium regulates nerve function and reduces the intensity of pain.

5. Boosts Energy Levels
One key role that magnesium plays is helping convert food into energy. This, in turn, can boost your energy levels. Magnesium also promotes the activation of enzymes that promote cellular energy. By activating an enzyme known as adenosine triphosphate (ATP), magnesium can boost your energy levels and help combat feelings of fatigue.

6. Improve Your Heart and Cardiovascular Health
A major benefit of Magnesium is that it can improve your heart and cardiovascular health. As our bodies need magnesium to maintain muscle health, this includes the a very important muscle- the heart.
A study found that magnesium deficiency can increase a person's risk of suffering from cardiovascular problems. There has also been a study on people who receive magnesium soon after a heart attack have a lower risk of mortality. And, researchers have also concluded that increasing your magnesium intake may lower your risk of suffering from a stroke. While exercising and eating well are important in taking care of your general health, magnesium spray may help give your heart an extra boost.

7. Reduce Pain and Inflammation from Arthritis
If you have arthritis, you're probably already familiar with bone health and inflammation. Arthritis causes inflammation in the body. Magnesium is known to reduce inflammation.

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory and autoimmune disease that affects the joints in the knees, wrists, and hands. If you have RA, you often have chronic pain. When RA affects the joints, they become inflamed. The inflammation can damage joint tissue over time. The lungs, heart, and eyes can also be affected by RA. One study found that those with higher levels of magnesium in their diets were less likely to get RA. This could be because magnesium has anti-inflammatory properties.
