According to the USDA, fifty-seven percent of Americans don’t get enough dietary magnesium. Symptoms of magnesium deficiency range from minor things like fatigue, muscle weakness and cramps to serious problems like personality change and heart failure. Poor diet and alcohol abuse are major contributors to magnesium deficiency. Green leafy vegetables and nuts are rich sources of magnesium, but it can also be absorbed directly through the skin during a bath or a massage with our Mag-nificence lotion. The best and most relaxing way to supplement with magnesium is through back rubs and long hot baths.That’s great news because stress can cause your magnesium levels to dip.
Magnesium can do more than just improve the quality of your massage. According to theUniversity of Maryland Medical Center, “magnesium may enhance the effectiveness of conventional treatment for the following conditions:”
5. Noise-related hearing loss
6. Cardiovascular Health
8. High Blood Pressure
10. Preclampsia and Eclampsia
12. Restless Leg Syndrome
