Magnesium Gel and Your Health
Leading nutrition experts consider magnesium supplementation essential due to the prevalence of magnesium deficiency in the modern diet and magnesium’s crucial role in over 300 fundamental biochemical reactions.
Magnesium has been placed on the short list of nutrients of concern by the U.S. Department of Health 1 yet many continue to be unaware of the role magnesium and hypomagnesemia play in optimal health. A study by scientists at the Centers for Disease Control, published in the Journal of Nutrition, explains:
Despite the role of magnesium in maintaining health, much of the U.S. population has historically not consumed adequate amounts of magnesium… Magnesium is an essential element that is crucial to hundreds of physiologic processes in humans. Not surprisingly, inadequate intake of magnesium has been linked to various adverse health outcomes, including the development of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and headaches. Furthermore, magnesium is important in bone growth and may play a role in athletic performance.” 2
For those who suspect magnesium deficiency and hypomagnesemia may play a role in chronic ailments, or those who proactively supplement magnesium to achieve optimal health, there are several types of oral magnesium available. Yet oral magnesium is not tolerated well by certain individuals, and some forms have been shown to have as low as a 4% absorption rate.
Experts such as Dr. Carolyn Dean, M.D. and naturopathic doctor, hail topical magnesium as an “exciting addition to the magnesium family” due to its universal ease of use and the high bioavailability of its dominant mineral magnesium chloride. She writes:
I realized that many people can’t take oral magnesium because of the laxative effect. Therefore I began researching and then advising people to put supersaturated magnesium chloride on their skin to bypass the intestines, stimulate DHEA production that occurs in the skin, use in baths and foot baths for muscle aches, joint pain, and foot pain and neuropathy.” 3
While the benefits of aloe to the skin are familiar to many, the application of magnesium chloride to the skin brings a new level to the benefits of massage and topical therapies.
Topical magnesium is safe, convenient, and affordable.
