I am often asked about quick ways to replenish magnesium levels in the body – both by my readers and customers. Here is my answer – based on years of using magnesium products to boost my own health, as well as on years of research on health benefits of magnesium and its salts.
How much magnesium should we take daily?
The RDA for magnesium is between 30mg for babies and 420mg for adult males. This table from Healthline is a great reference showing how much magnesium we require depending on our age and gender.
Oral supplementation is probably the first one most of us will think of when we talk about topping up our level of magnesium in the body. However, not all of us can absorb oral magnesium efficiently, especially if the digestive system is clogged up with impurities, or is not very efficient – which is true of the majority of the world population over the age of 30. Even when it is healthy, much of magnesium we take orally passes through the body unabsorbed, and if we take too much then even less of it will be absorbed since it is a laxative.
This makes transdermal magnesium supplementation a much more suitable and attractive option for most people. Transdermally, magnesium gets into the cells – where it is most needed – much more quickly than it does when taken by mouth.
The most popular ways to supplement magnesium transdermally is a bath, a spray, or a massage. Body spray and massage are the most economical ways to do it. Just spray or massage the body with magnesium oil once a day after a bath or a shower. Leave it on for 1 hour, or even overnight if you can, and you should feel the relaxing and tension relieving effects of magnesium very soon.
Transdermally, magnesium can also be administered in baths, foot baths and compresses. For a bath, I suggest using magnesium flakes as the more economical way to achieve the best concentration. Use about 500g -1kg of magnesium chloride flake in a bath, and 250g – 500g in a foot bath. Such procedures are most beneficial before bedtime since deep relaxation resulting from an increase of magnesium in the body will certainly promote sleep.
FAR-INFRARED MAGNESIUM WRAP
This is an amazingly relaxing and therapeutic treatment which I have developed recently. It is aimed at those who are desperately deficient in magnesium and need quick supplementation. The treatment uses far-infrared heat to open up pores and boost circulation not only in the skin but in deeper body structures. With the pores open and blood flow increased, magnesium stands a better chance to be absorbed quickly and in large quantities.
The treatment is preceded by massage to stimulate circulation and soften up the tissues. The infrared heat helps to open up the cell membranes, which contributes towards magnesium absorption.
Apart from being very therapeutic, the treatment is thoroughly relaxing, thanks to the effects of magnesium and the infrared heat. It promotes detoxification on the cellular level, helps to relieve aches, pains, muscle spasms, arthritis, sleep problems, fatigue, boost immunity, promotes relaxation, helps relieve water retention and is a really great start to a weight loss programme. People generally lose a lot of water during the treatment which has an added physical effect of feeling lighter afterwards.
One of my customers described the way she felt during the treatment as “wrapped in a soft cocoon”, and another said that it felt “like being in a mother’s womb waiting to be born”.
