A recent innovation on the market, transdermal magnesium is gaining in popularity as a fast method of taking this essential element on board, without resorting to tablets. If you're new to the concept of a magnesium spray, or want to find out what the fuss is about, take a look at our information guide to the health and well-being benefits this product can have.
What does the body use magnesium for?
Magnesium is essential to a wide range of physiological functions. As well as being key to bone health, the body also uses magnesium to:
- Support the immune system
- Maintain nerve health
- Assist in regulating blood sugar levels
- Contribute towards muscle health
- Assist in maintaining heart health
Playing such a key role in well-being, it's worrying that research shows that around a third of Australian adults aren't consuming enough magnesium in their diet. Over time, magnesium deficiency has been shown to increase the likelihood of chronic disease, including Type II diabetes.
Why supplement magnesium levels using a spray?
Although nuts, beans (legumes) and seafood are all good sources of magnesium, absorption is slow and dependent on regular intake of magnesium-rich foods. Magnesium tablets are a blunt instrument, as, once swallowed, there is no way of controlling the speed of absorption. For people who want to enjoy the fast physiological benefits which magnesium can bring, a magnesium spray is ideal. Easy to apply and acting quickly due to the way it's administered, a magnesium spray can:
- Support muscles during exercise
- Aid recovery after exercise
- Enhance bone health by making it easier for bones to absorb calcium
- Can improve sleep
- Replenish magnesium levels that have become depleted during physical activity
When to use a magnesium spray?
Ideally, a magnesium spray should be used on clean, dry skin, as this helps to enhance absorption. After showering is a great time to apply magnesium spray. It can also be applied topically to joints and muscles which have been working particularly hard.
A magnesium spray may enhance exercise performance, as well as confer a number of other helpful health benefits. Shop our range HERE to find one that suits your lifestyle.
