You probably grew up being told that you needed to drink milk for your bones (for calcium of course).
Or maybe you were told to go play outside in the sun and get some fresh air (for good old fashioned Vitamin D).
But, do you have any memory of being encouraged to increase your magnesium levels?
No? You’re not the only one.
Because magnesium isn’t the most well-known mineral, we’ll start with the basics.
Magnesium is a mineral and element found throughout nature, and it takes a variety of forms along the way. You can find it in the sea as magnesium chloride, in rock form as magnesite, and even in plants as a component of chlorophyll.
You’ll also find it in every living, breathing person on Earth, all 7.6 billion of us.
For humans, it’s an essential mineral.
So essential in fact that it is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body, and has proven to be a critical component of overall health. Magnesium plays a role in over 300 biochemical reactions in the body that can impact your sleep, energy levels, youthfulness and more. On a cellular level, magnesium is necessary to produce energy, synthesize DNA and RNA, allow muscles to contract and the heart to beat. (1)
If that got a bit too science-y for you, we can sum it up by saying that magnesium is a must have for everyone.
Now before you forgo supplementing with magnesium with a thought along the lines of: “Hey look here, I eat well, I drink water, I’m sure my magnesium levels are fine. I’m pretty healthy!”
The proof is in the pudding.
80% of tested adults are found to be deficient in magnesium.
That’s right, the majority of adults aren’t getting enough of a mineral that we absolutely need for our bodies to function properly. Low levels of magnesium have been found to be associated with a variety of chronic illnesses, including Alzheimer’s disease, type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, migraines, and ADHD. (2)
Luckily, you’ve found us and the most effective magnesium supplement available - magnesium oil. Applying magnesium oil topically on a consistent basis improves your magnesium levels and can relieve pain, improve sleep, and more!
