Okay, we know this is a website for skin care and beauty, so why the Ancient Minerals Magnesium?
It’s simply because we are huge fans of magnesium products and the benefits gained by administering magnesium transdermally so that it gets into the blood system and isn’t kicked out as it passes through the kidneys.
But who really needs Magnesium?
Practically Everyone! Particularly those with muscle/joint pain, migraine, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, those with arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, restless legs syndrome, chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, stress, heart disease, PMS, kidney stones, gout, insomnia, those who take calcium without magnesium, and those who exercise – particularly athletes.
Magnesium is the second most abundant element inside human cells and the fourth most abundant positively charged ion in the human body.
Our bodies do not produce magnesium and it has all but disappeared from the soils and as such from our food chain.
Within the body’s cells, it serves literally hundreds of functions.
Some common signs of magnesium deficiency are restless legs, cramps, muscle spasms, aching muscles, lack of energy, migraines, high blood pressure, arthritis, osteoporosis and anxiety, to name but a few.
But you can read a lot more on our magnesium web page.
Ancient Minerals magnesium products offer a convenient form of transdermal magnesium — absorbed through the skin — for those who prefer to avoid the hassle of taking pills and the difficulties inherent with poorly tolerated oral supplements – ranging from our highly concentrated magnesium oil to our bath salts and lotion for sensitive individuals.
