Topical Magnesium is definitely the new must-have product for health professional practices and patients for home use. Magnesium deficiency is so widespread that at least three out of four adults in developed countries should actively increase their intake — especially to prevent serious chronic illnesses. Transdermal magnesium therapy is a powerful new tool that combines the healing power of the body’s largest organ, the skin, with the healing properties of one of the most vital minerals.
Magnesium is an essential mineral that supports so many physical functions. Although it’s found in a range of common foods, food processing can deplete its levels, and gastrointestinal problems can mean a lot of magnesium is easily lost.
Transdermal magnesium therapy, applied in the form of gels, creams and even bath flakes, can ensure an individual is receiving the intake of magnesium they need. The transdermal therapy approach makes sure that the mineral is safely absorbed, while giving the extra benefit of topical muscle treatment.
At Relaxus UK, we have a range of magnesium therapy products, which come in a choice of professional and domestic sizes.
Why Do We Need Magnesium?
Magnesium has the important job of turning the food we eat into energy. It also takes care of the parathyroid glands, which produce hormones essential for healthy bones. Magnesium also has a major part to play in keeping our muscles, skin and blood pressure healthy.
Men need 300mg of magnesium a day, women slightly less at 270mg. It’s found in leafy veg, wholegrain products, nuts, fish, meat and dairy.
What Is Magnesium Deficiency?
Hypomagnesemia (magnesium deficiency) can occur if it’s missing from the diet. However, an individual is more likely to experience hypomagnesemia if they have an underlying condition. This could be type 2 diabetes, alcoholism, and gastrointestinal diseases (such as Crohn’s).
Magnesium deficiency affects the muscles, causing weakness (myasthenia) and neuromuscular dysfunction. It’s also linked to:
Raised blood pressure
Why Use Topical Magnesium Therapy?
When an individual is diagnosed with low levels of magnesium, the obvious solution would be to take a supplement. However, this is by no means the most effective way of increasing magnesium intake.
If you have a condition such as IBS, you may struggle to absorb enough magnesium orally; and there’s no point in someone with diarrhoea swallowing a supplement that they’re only going to lose. If this is the case, a topical application of magnesium is an excellent approach.
Transdermal magnesium therapy will actually benefit everyone in need of a magnesium top-up, not just those with gastrointestinal troubles.
The skin is the body’s largest organ; and magnesium applied directly to it reaches the bloodstream quickly, and bypasses the digestive system. Also, the release of magnesium into the body is sustained when applied transdermally. If an individual is experiencing muscle pain or stiffness, there is the added therapeutic benefit of massage.
At Relaxus UK, we stock a range of topical magnesium therapy products, in a choice of forms. All provide superior absorption, and the type of topical therapy you choose depends largely upon personal preference. Also, if you are buying it for your own use rather than for professional therapy, you may find certain textures easier for home application. For example, we have a range of magnesium oils in spray bottles.
Magnesium creams provide excellent glide as well as super-absorption. Our creams from CryoDerm are designed to relax as well as provide topical magnesium therapy: perfect for those experiencing the muscle issues or sleeping difficulties associated with hypomagnesemia.
With shea butter and sweet almond oil as well as magnesium, this feels more like a luxurious beauty product than a transdermal supplement. As you can imagine, magnesium butter benefits the skin as well as supplying a dose of the mineral.
What Are The Benefits Of A Magnesium Bath?
As well as the glide-on topical products, we also have a range of magnesium bath flakes from Zechstein Miracle. These provide the natural relaxation of being immersed in a warmth bath, which helps with sleep problems. It relieves the muscle stiffness and cramping associated with low levels of magnesium, while gently absorbing magnesium through the skin.
How Does Magnesium Salt Help?
As well as topical applications, we also sell magnesium-enriched, low-sodium mineral salt from Zechstein Miracle. Replacing conventional salt with this healthier seasoning not only almost halves your sodium intake, but increases the amount of magnesium and potassium you consume.
