A BODY LOTION THAT DOES MORE: THE UNEXPECTED HEALTH BENEFITS OF MAGNESIUM
Veg Out Organics Magnesium Body Lotion combines the naturally calming and anti-inflammatory effects of CBD with the health benefits of magnesium chloride for a natural daily dose of "good" for your body, skin and mind. Yeah, that's magical.
Why settle for a lotion that does that does the bare minimum when your lotion can give you a daily does of magnesium in every application? Adding essential vitamins and minerals into your daily skincare routine can change not only your skin's health and feel, but also your overall health. What if you could give your body a little extra dose of good every day? Approximately eight out of ten of us are probably deficient in a very important mineral that plays a crucial role in our health.
We're talking about Magnesium.
Many people are walking around with a magnesium deficiency and have no idea. Magnesium plays such an important role within us because it helps the body manage levels of calcium, sodium and potassium, and assists in the reactions of over 300 enzymes in our body. Did you know that magnesium is found in every cell of our body?
A few important functions that most don't know about magnesium include:
- It assists the reactions of over 300 enzymes
- Aides in muscle relaxation and muscle/joint pain prevention
- Stabilizes insulin and blood sugar
- Maintains heart health
- Balances hormones in women and men
- Helps to manage moods
It's natural to think that we are able to receive the required amounts of magnesium necessary through our diets, however, with an excess of processed foods, bad fats and sugars, magnesium levels are steadily decreasing, resulting in a population deficient in the mineral. Additionally, eating the wrong foods, poor soil quality, elevated amounts of calcium and individual absorption difficulties are making it near impossible for people to easily stay on top of their intake ratio.
Soothes common skin inflammation problems like Rosacea, Eczema, Psoriasis, Acne.
Magnesium can even improve the skin's complexion. When topically applied, magnesium oil breaks apart fats and oils which can reduce the severity and occurrence of acne breakouts.
There are other factors that are also contributing to our deficiencies.
Government-funded studies have reported that due to a change in farming methods and food processing, the level of magnesium within our diet has declined by over 21% since 1940. That is a pretty significant setback in our ability to maintain levels on diet alone. A whopping 80% of adults are lacking this very moment. This is why is so important and highly recommended that magnesium supplementation is introduced into your daily routine to help keep your levels optimum and replenish lost magnesium.
Needless to say, a deficiency in this essential nutrient is going to leave you feeling out of sorts and can pave a way for more serious health issues down the line. So, why is Magnesium so important?
Promotes bone health, especially for post-menopausal women.
Magnesium plays a critical role in maintaining bone density which is affected my menopause. Magnesium helps the body effectively use the building blocks of strong bones, including the nutrients calcium and Vitamin D. The many symptoms of menopause such as poor sleep patterns and sleep interference, low moods, joint aches and pains, fatigue, food cravings, restless legs, night cramps, and fatigue can be supported by simply adding in magnesium to your daily skincare routine.
Promotes better sleep.
Magnesium is great for is getting a better night's sleep. Magnesium can relax receptors within the nervous system and the brain. This can help someone feel calm and slow down the body and mind. As a result, this relaxation can induce sleep. People who are dealing with serious insomnia and who have tried everything else may want to give magnesium a shot. Try rubbing magnesium lotion onto the skin right before bedtime.
May help with PMS symptoms.
One of the most surprising benefits of magnesium oil is that it can help relieve unpleasant Premenstrual Syndrome symptoms. Magnesium has been proven to decrease the pain and bloating that are often associated with PMS symptoms. There are many chemicals on the market that can reduce the discomfort from PMS, but magnesium is natural and good for the body.
Helps alleviate stress and anxiety.
Magnesium that occurs in the body is known to be burned during times of stress, so it is associated with reducing stress. This is another benefit of magnesium that is not well understood yet, but it is generally agreed on that magnesium does help decrease levels of stress and anxiety.
May assist in fighting high blood pressure.
High blood pressure is a very common problem in Western countries. Using magnesium has been found to lower blood pressure a little bit. It does not lower blood pressure a great deal, so it is not a good idea to try and use magnesium by itself to combat high blood pressure. However, it can be used as part of a holistic approach to lowering blood pressure in a healthy way.
May assist in blood sugar maintenance.
Diabetes is another serious problem that is often associated with poor diet. Many people who have diabetes, especially poorly treated or untreated diabetes, are at very low magnesium levels. It's been suggested that those affected by diabetes may need more than twice the recommended daily allowance of magnesium, which is 350 to 400 milligrams a day. These individuals may consider both oral magnesium supplements and applying magnesium lotion to their skin after a shower.
It's Honestly Super Simple...
Transdermal magnesium therapy is simply a method of delivering minerals to the body through the skin (i.e. transdermal). This isn’t a new concept – topical remedies anointed, bandaged, rubbed or applied to the skin are likely to have been used since the origin of man! More recent, science-based examples include nicotine patches to help smokers quit, or estrogen patches to treat menopausal symptoms.
Although absorption rates vary, topical magnesium tends to have one of the highest and quickest rates of absorption of any form of this mineral. Studies on transdermal application have found that in topical treatment, 89% of subjects raised their cellular magnesium levels – with an average increase of 59.7%! Given that equivalent results using oral supplements took between 9 and 24 months to achieve, that’s pretty impressive!
Our Magnesium Body Lotion is a perfect way to add some Magnesium Chloride transdermally while also soothing and hydrating your skin with aloe vera, (aloe vera juice is always our first ingredient) mango butter, shea, and Vitamin E.
