What is magnesium?

Magnesium ions are found throughout the human body and help regulate over 300 biochemical reactions. Magnesium is available as an oral supplement as well as relaxing bath flakes and topical creams and gels. We here at A&M offer it in both the BULK option of just the Magnesium flakes as well as in Spray form called JOINT CARE for easy application.

What does magnesium do?

Magnesium ions throughout the body help regulate biochemical reactions. They act as enzyme co-factors, which means they play a vital role in reducing, controlling and moderating cellular oxidative damage. Magnesium is also found in plants. It is actually the organizing atom in Chlorophyll, which converts the sun’s rays to energy.

Difference between epsom salts and magnesium salts

Magnesium Flakes, (magnesium chloride) are much more easily absorbed into the skin than epsom salts, as they have a different molecular structure. Magnesium salts can be more effective and are often recommended to people who have magnesium deficiencies.

Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) look a lot like regular salts and also are of benefit to the body when added to a bath for relaxing muscles and cramps after a long day or a workout.

Magnesium oil benefits

Using magnesium oil

Magnesium oil has a very high concentration of magnesium, so it takes some experimentation to see how well your skin absorbs it. For thinner and sensitive skin, start with a magnesium cream, then move onto oils when your skin has adjusted to absorbing magnesium. When it’s time to move onto oils, look at our MAG+ blend– it’s not as sticky as straight Magnesium oil, and can be absorbed more easily.

Magnesium to help sleep

Application of magnesium oil may help you get to sleep quicker. Sleep deprivation is a common sign of magnesium deficiency. In addition to this, other symptoms such as restlessness, headaches and sore muscles can affect your ability to have a great nights’ sleep. Apply magnesium oil on affected areas of the body, or on the back of your neck to help minimize any of these symptoms before going to bed.

Magnesium massage

Massages can be even more beneficial when magnesium products are involved. Adding a magnesium oil to your regular massage oil can soothe sore muscles and mild tension. It is also wonderful to rub directly into muscles after working out. Our magnesium JOINT CARE blend will surprise you at how quickly your muscles and joints start to relax and feel better. Life. Is. Short. Choose Natural Options first.
