Magnesium, 4 ways
Magnesium is found throughout your body. In fact, every cell in your body contains this mineral— and needs it to function. Although it’s found in a variety of foods ranging from leafy greens to nuts, seeds, and beans, many people don’t get enough magnesium in their diet.
We love magnesium!
Magnesium is crucial for your brain and body, known to regulate blood sugar levels, boost athletic performance, and is being studied for its ability to help reduce symptoms of anxiety and decrease stress.
Here are 4 (of many) reasons we’re fans.
1. Skin Hydration
Magnesium is a natural mineral essential to health and hydration. Although it’s not as directly important to hydration as sodium and potassium, it still plays an important role. An amazing hydrator of skin by directly strengthening the skin's lipid barrier. Don’t let the “salt” part fool you. Fill up your bath, add a good amount of Magnesium Flakes and chill. You'll love how you feel, and feel, afterwards.
2. . Muscle Recovery
Magnesium is a standout for its pain relief qualities. From athletes to those in physically demanding jobs, to the COVID sedentary life... magnesium is a known anti-inflammatory. This mineral helps put muscles at ease and loosen up the body, offering you relaxation even in pain. Magnesium is a natural alternative to OTC muscle relaxers and pain medication. Next time you feel burnt out and hurt, take your magnesium of choice, an Herbal Compress, and feel the difference.
3. Skin Condition Relief
Do you suffer from eczema, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, or another chronic skin condition. Magnesium not only boosts hydration but also reduces inflammation. This doesn't just help relax you, it also helps hydrate dry skin brought on by skin conditions. Magnesium can also aid in your feeling less itchy and give you hydrated skin that lasts a long time. Try Magnesium Lotion as an alternative to other skin condition remedies, or in conjunction with them.
4. Stress Reduction
Finally, a salt soak is a great stress reducer any time of day. Adding salt to that bath, however, increases the de-stressing effects greatly. As previously mentioned, magnesium relaxes the muscles and relieves the body of pain. This puts your mind at ease, allowing you a stress-free experience after a long day of work. You'll forget all about your aches and pains and be able to focus on healing.
Magnesium in capsule form is an option for when a daily bath is not accessible. We recommend Magnesium Glycinate for its unique absorption ability.
