Magnesium the Master Mineral

Every cell in the human body needs adequate Magnesium to function – it is essential for your energy, cell growth, nerves, muscles, and heart and also helps you to relax both physically and mentally.  Strong bones and teeth, balanced hormones, a healthy nervous system, a healthy cardiovascular system and much more depend upon cellular magnesium.

Magnesium has been called “the most relaxing mineral in the body” by many health experts. It is a master mineral and getting enough is one of the keys to good health. Unfortunately most soil, therefore the food we grow, and our bodies, are severely deficient in Magnesium.

Magnesium is a difficult mineral to supplement orally because most magnesium salts taken orally have a laxative effect. So the question is how can we get enough magnesium when our food and our bodies are so deficient?  If you live near the ocean, a daily swim can help provide some Magnesium and other minerals through your skin.

If you are not near the ocean then Magnesium Oil applied to your skin is a great way to ensure your body has adequate Magnesium for optimal health.

Here are some foods that are high in Magnesium and that you can include in your diet:

  • Dark chocolate
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Almonds
  • Whole grain bread
  • Beans or lentils
  • Cashew nuts
  • Rice
  • Spinach
  • Sesame seeds
  • Walnuts

Magnesium can help ensure you absorb Calcium properly. Your body needs Calcium to support healthy bones and joints, but if it is taken without Magnesium you could develop calcifications.

In it’s liquid form Magnesium Chloride, although not technically an oil, has a naturally oily feel. Try spraying on your feet to help relax you and then settle in for good night’s sleep!

You can buy Organic Magnesium Oil here.
