WE’RE NOT GETTING IT
Is it a stretch to call Ancient Magnesium “The most important mineral” for daily supplementation? Not when we consider that food has seen a 60% reduction in magnesium levels over the past 50 years.
Intense farming methods, leading to soil depletion, and a processed western diet are all contributors towards a poor magnesium intake, so it is hardly surprising that the majority of us fail to get enough of this vital mineral.
The World Health Organisation points out that most of us do not meet our Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) for magnesium. Some doctors say our baseline Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is set too low, and this creates an even bigger chance for deficiency. When it comes to magnesium, it’s uncommon to find that we are having enough.
What about magnesium supplementation?
Not all forms of Magnesium supplementation deliver the same benefits and magnesium can be more effective when applied topically, as opposed to ingested. Magnesium Oxide (the most common form sold as a tablet or capsule) has shown to have a low absorption rate and can create a laxative effect, whereas Magnesium Chloride used transdermally is viewed by many as the “master magnesium compound” due to its high bioavailability and efficiency.
In the late 1990’s, a rare and pristine source of unadulterated Magnesium Chloride was found located in an ancient geological formation – the Zechstein seabed. Ultra-pure Zechstein Mine Magnesium Chloride is known as the original, gold-standard transdermal magnesium, and through topical application it has been found to increase the body’s magnesium levels, equivalent to two years of tablet use in just six weeks!
Transdermal magnesium has the potential to quickly improve magnesium levels in the body, providing many benefits:
- Magnesium contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
- Magnesium contributes to electrolyte balance
- Magnesium contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system
- Magnesium contributes to normal muscle function
- Magnesium contributes to normal protein synthesis
- Magnesium contributes to normal psychological function
- Magnesium contributes to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth
- Magnesium has a role in the process of cell division
Of course, it is possible to get some magnesium from food and high magnesium content foods include mackerel, spinach (boiled), artichokes, quinoa, almonds, and pumpkin seeds, which make a great starting point! However, using a topical magnesium product is a highly effective way to support cellular magnesium levels, in order to meet daily requirements. Some people may also need more magnesium than others, such as pregnant women, those exercising/training regularly, or during times of prolonged stress. But all adults, children, and the elderly can benefit from a daily dose.
