Air, water and magnesium. Mostly in that order. The three key ingredients needed to lead a rich and sustainable human life. Magnesium is an amazing and integral trace element needed daily by the body to sustain its life.
Once upon a time magnesium used to be present in much of the planet’s soil but now due to ‘suspect’ farming practices and weathering it is all but depleted. Egypt is the only country in the world that can boast the highest levels of magnesium in its soil.
So just why is it so important? Magnesium contributes to more than 10,000 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps support the digestive metabolism contributing to around 400 bio-enzyme functions in the gut. Much of the magnesium is stored in the bones and the rest spread throughout the body’s cell tissue and organs. It’s a key precursor to cellular stability, in other words good health… all the time.
One of the key areas of noticeable deficiency of magnesium is in muscle tissue and the nervous system. It’s a fabulous compliment to both men and women’s cardio-vascular health. It’s also good for men and women suffering from hypertension and diabetes. Recent research reveals 95% of men who suffer from cardiac failure (heart attacks) have little to no discernible magnesium in their muscle tissue. Magnesium immediately relaxes muscle tissue. Body aches and pains are a sure sign of magnesium deficiency along with an anxiety, fatigue, headaches, loss of appetite, abnormal heart beat, muscle twitching and ‘jumping legs’. Asthma attacks have also been attributed to a chronic lack of magnesium. Magnesium intake is wonderful for pregnant women not only providing a valuable trace mineral but also making the process of childbirth that much freer and easier.
I find that if I have a craving for chocolate, chances are I need a magnesium top-up. Chocolate is rich in magnesium which includes cacao powder. Magnesium is very handy for stabilising depression and menopausal symptoms. That’s why after eating a really top quality dark chocolate one can feel quite relaxed.
How do I keep my magnesium levels ‘up’? There are natural sources of magnesium such as leafy green vegetables like kale and spinach along with sea vegetables – making these three a staple of your everyday diet will assist in maintaining magnesium levels. Tomatoes, beetroot, broad and lima beans, artichoke and buckwheat, pumpkin seeds and peanuts and of course cacao chocolate. Good quality water (slightly hard) with a ph around 6.5 to 7.5 contains good quantities of magnesium.
I take magnesium into my body daily. Surprisingly, applying it transdermally is about 30X more effective than taking it orally (it by-passes the digestive tract). By rubbing rehydrated magnesium chloride into my naval, under my breast line, into the nape of my neck, lower back, behind my knees and around my wrists, I maintain a homeopathic relationship with it after every shower or bath. Simply place 2 dessert spoons of the powder into a jar, add a few drops of water and allow the rest to rehydrate. Then dip your fingers into the briny solution and apply it to your body. It’s absolutely great for muscular cramps after vigorous exercise or running.
Oh… and why Magnesium ‘Chloride‘? Well, the Chloride member of the magnesium family is more absorb-able than the citrates, sulfates or carbonates, in fact about 30X more absorb-able. I am not without my magnesium ever and I know my cellular body is the better for having small amounts daily introduced to it. Just feel so good with it!!
Here’s what one online buyer of magnesium shares about her results after starting to use it.
‘Having suffered from insomnia since my hysterectomy 5 yrs ago. Like many of you, my Doctor just kept prescribing sleeping pills such as Ambiena, Lunest and one psychotic tranquilliser. I couldn’t stand the way they made me feel so I just got used to going on maybe 4 hours of sleep a night if I was lucky. After only taking the magnesium 4 days I started sleeping so soundly I didn’t even hear my husband’s alarm go off nor did I hear him leave the house in the morning. I am now getting a minimum 6-7 hours of sleep per night after only a week and a half. My back aches have improved. I’m just wondering why my doctor never prescribed this earlier!’ – Donya BH
