5 Surprising Benefits of a Magnesium Oil
Magnesium is one of the most abundant minerals found on earth and one of the essential minerals needed for human cells to function properly. Before we were all wearing cute boots and living in condos, we lived a lot close to nature. Living in a city is great, but we need to make adjustments to our lifestyle to account for our distance from nature so that we can remain healthy. Since magnesium used to be in the soil we grew our food in we had enough of it in our diet and absorbed through our skin when we touched the earth. This meant that the act of gardening or walking barefoot on the ground helped with our absorption of magnesium. Today, our soil is depleted of a lot of nutrients and a lot of people are testing for magnesium deficiency.
Some of the symptoms are magnesium deficiency are:
- migraines and headaches
- anxiety and depression
- muscle soreness
We've developed a moisturizing body oil that is packed with magnesium to mimic the healing benefits of being in touch with the earth. This means that even while living in a city, you can get the benefits of magnesium!
Here are some of the benefits:
- Better Sleep
Magnesium helps with the neurotransmitter GABA which is needed to shut the brain off so that it can sleep fully. Getting a good night's sleep means "cleaning" the brain of lymphatic fluid which is so important!
- Helps with Symptoms of Depression
It is not fully understood how magnesium can help with depression symptoms but in clinical studies it shows a lot of success. Our guess is that it helps nerves functions which helps your glands function which means proper amounts of dopamine and serotonin.
- Helps your Muscles Heal Super Fast
Putting magnesium on sore muscles helps with heal fast because it helps the tissue clear lactic acid more quickly. This means that you'll recover faster from workouts or even just help with a sore back from that weird pull-out couch you slept on.
Magnesium is needed for the muscles of your digestive system to work properly. Not having enough means that digestion can seem slow and this can lead to constipation. If your digestive system isn't working its best, absorption of magnesium can be difficult and lead to loose stools which no one wants. Rubbing a magnesium oil locally can help with digestion.
- Period Cramps
Taking magnesium can help with the period cramps big time. Rubbing a magnesium oil locally around the uterus can help with inflammation and also help the muscle wall of the uterus function better!
Basically magnesium is the best. It's literally a lil rock from the earth that heals you which is really cute.
