ARE YOU GETTING ENOUGH MAGNESIUM?
THE MASTER MINERAL
WHAT CAN CAUSE MAGNESIUM DEFICIENCY?
NOT ENOUGH IN FOOD... Poor food choices or digestive problems can leave us short of magnesium.
STRESS CAUSES MAGNESIUM LOSS... Stress can be psychological, physical, chemical, pharmacological, induced by extreme temperatures, excessive noise, working out, burns, pain, hospitalization, travelling long distances, sleep deprivation and more. Prolonged or chronic stress without replenishment of magnesium stores will result in magnesium deficit.
BEST WAYS TO REPLACE LOST MAGNESIUM
“If farm soils are well-mineralized, leafy green vegetables, seeds, tree nuts and whole grains are fairly good sources of magnesium. Certain wild-crafted forage foods really stand out, however, such as nettles (860 mg per 100 grams) and chickweed (529 mg per 100 grams), and add many tonic and nutritive benefits to both human and livestock diets largely due to their high mineral content. Kelp, ancient denizen of the sea, contains spectacular levels, as do most sea vegetables. Remember that they are continually bathed in a solution whose third most abundant mineral is magnesium. And authentic, unrefined sea salt is a very good source of magnesium, along with trace minerals. Utilizing bone broths on a daily basis will provide another excellent source of minerals, including magnesium, in a highly assimilable form.” (Quote from article "Magnificent Magnesium" by Katherine Czapp at: http://www.westonaprice.org/vitamins-and-minerals/magnificent-magnesium )
BALNEOTHERAPY and TRANSDERMAL MAGNESIUM
(NUTRITION VIA SKIN):
(NUTRITION VIA SKIN):
For thousands of years people have been making trips to visit hot mineral springs to immerse themselves in the rich mineral waters (which are high in magnesium) for a rejuvenating effect. This practice is called 'Balneotherapy'. The dermal absorption of minerals has been extensively studied by scientists and found to be an effective method of mineral absorption. Magnesium tablets and powders can cause bowel irritation, but not so with transdermal absorption because no digestion is required. It is easier for the body to absorb magnesium ions via the skin, than it is to digest magnesium compounds in the stomach and then absorb via the bowel wall. Also, during stress or illness the digestive system is less efficient in nutrient uptake, but transdermal absorption can compensate.
