Scroll down to read my list of Top 10 Magnesium Rich Foods…
Many people are suffering from simple trace mineral malnourishment. I see symptoms in the form of metabolic breakdown at the physiological level. In other words, chronic disease manifesting in the form of arthritic pain, fibromyalgia pain and even simple cramps is an indication of nutritional and mineral deficiencies, mainly magnesium.
Simple cramps are a dead giveaway and this is occurring in both men and women of all age groups. I see them each weekend, as they continue to present themselves at my store.
Magnesium contributes to the successful function of nearly 400 enzyme systems and about 10,000 bio-mechanical functions. It’s also required by the body to regulate muscle and nerve function, blood sugar levels and making protein, bone and DNA.
Approximately 50% of the total body magnesium is found in bone. 49% is found inside cellular tissue and organs and around 1% is actually found in the blood stream. This 1% is critical however and the body works to keep it constant.
Magnesium, under perfect conditions, is obtained from fresh vegetables and fruit. For whatever reason, Magnesium in its variety of forms is deficient in the soils of most countries except Egypt. So we need to bring it into our bodies in its pure form.
When magnesium is deficient in the body the entire body is under stress. I rehydrate Magnesium Chloride (make into a liquid by adding water to Mag Chlor. crystals). Research has shown that magnesium integrates into the blood, muscles and cellular structure of the body through successful liquid transdermal application. In other words I rub it into my skin.
In addition, bringing food types and categories into your daily eating habits will also augment the introduction of Magnesium to the body. Some are easily obtainable and can be integrated into your plant-based lifestyle. Rice bran is top of the list but is not a food I eat, however if you chose to eat rice bran then the best way is to make it part of your seed bread recipe.

One final tip – when you rub liquid Magnesium Chloride onto the soles of your feet at night chances are you will be fast asleep ten minutes later. Like the back of the neck, the navel, under the breast line, lower back and behind the knees, the soles of your feet are super absorbent. Try it and see how much more rested you feel in the morning.
