We’ve been taught that we get nutrition from the things that we eat. So when you apply lotion or a spray to the skin or soak in a bath with crystals added, nutrition may not be the first thing that leaps to mind. However, our topical Mag-nificence™ products were designed with nutrition at the forefront. Essential magnesium is involved in hundreds upon hundreds of biological activities in the body, but only around 20 percent of the population gets the recommended daily amount of magnesium through their diets. Furthermore, a lot of people have trouble with oral magnesium because it can have a laxative effect, ironically, making it hard to absorb.
Magnesium is difficult to test for as the blood will only contain about 1 percent of your body’s supply. This may be part of the reason why magnesium deficiency is both widespread and overlooked.
It may seem counter intuitive that you can get a nutrient through your skin, but when you think about it, that’s how vitamin D works. Today, there is a growing body of evidence showing that magnesium can be absorbed through the epidermis.
From Carolyn Dean, MD’s book the Magnesium Miracle, “Magnesium oil can be sprayed on the body and is readily absorbed through the skin. It helps greatly to increase the amount of magnesium in body tissues and overcomes the problems that some people have with loose stools when they try and take enough magnesium to meet their needs. “
A study presented at a scientific conference by researchers showed that magnesium traveled through the skin of cadavers when applied like a lotion.
A pilot study out of England found that “magnesium in the chloride form will raise magnesium levels within the body over a relatively short period of time.”
The University of Maryland Medical Center website simply states, “Some magnesium can be absorbed through the skin.”
The AIM Companies provides Magnificence topical magnesium in three forms: lotion, spray and bath crystals. How will you get your magnesium?
Note: The main ingredient in Mag-nificence is magnesium chloride.
