Tension headache or migraine, agitation, anxiety and depression, muscle cramps/spasm/pain, restless leg syndrome (RLS), sleep disorders, irritability, nausea and vomiting, abnormal heart rhythms, low blood pressure, confusion, hyperventilation, insomnia, seizures, osteoporosis are some of the common symptoms of magnesium deficiency.
According to National Institutes of Health: Magnesium helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis.
Oral supplementation of magnesium is affected by numerous things in your gut – no matter what type of oral magnesium you use. Because all magnesium taken orally is potentially laxative, the ability to absorb magnesium through the GI tract is limited by shortened transit time.
Considering these difficulties and the numerous factors that may negatively impact oral magnesium absorption in the GI tract, topical magnesium shows clear benefits. Topical magnesium: Is safe, convenient, affordable and effective.
Scientists at OM Botanical successfully infused high dose (4500mg/oz) of dead sea magnesium chloride in their body lotion. The resulting magnesium body lotion not only provides a relief from pain or muscle cramp when applied directly to the troubled area. It does so also without having to worry about diarrhea or indigestion associated with oral supplements. Additionally, it aid in over 300 neuromuscular functions.
You’ve probably heard of one popular form of transdermal magnesium delivery, which is an Epsom salts bath – commonly used for decreasing muscle soreness. Epsom salts actually deliver magnesium sulfate, which can help with post-workout recovery. However, magnesium chloride in OM Botanical body lotion is even more effective than Epsom salts. “By appling magnesium body lotion topically, you not only provide sufficient hydration to your skin, you also get your daily dose of magnesium through your skin ” states Sudhir Shah, the cheif scientist at OM Botanical.
