Why Magnesium is Essential for Good Health

The Mighty Mineral That Powers Your Body

Magnesium - my favorite Mineral

Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. I first realized its importance to me when I had my third child. I wrote about it here. The Mineral That Saved My Life

I firmly believe that many of us are lacking in magnesium, a nutrient that fuels over 300 vital biochemical reactions in the body.

  • Magnesium helps the heart maintain a healthy rhythm and is involved in the regulation of blood pressure and cholesterol production.
  • It helps maintain normal nerve and muscle function, supports a healthy immune system, and helps bones remain strong. It also helps adjust blood glucose levels and much more.
  • Magnesium is part of a matrix of "helper nutrients" like fiber, potassium, and antioxidants which protect blood vessels and help to improve insulin resistance.
  • Additionally, magnesium helps convert vitamin D into an active form for the body and helps the liver and kidneys metabolize it. So, a deficiency in magnesium reduces your body’s ability to use vitamin D, which impacts your ability to absorb calcium.

But why are so many deficient? It's a combination of factors: our exercise habits, age, medication use, and the nutrient-depleted soils that grow our food. Whether we're exercising more or leading a more sedentary lifestyle, our cells are constantly craving this essential mineral.

And let's talk about our diets. Processed foods, sugars, and chemicals can strip magnesium from our bodies, leaving us vulnerable to deficiency. It's a wake-up call to prioritize nutrient-rich foods and find ways to get more minerals into our diet.

In a world where mineral deficiencies are widespread, and people are struggling with all manner of ailments, I'm here to change that narrative by shedding light on the importance of magnesium and its impact on our health.

I am a big believer that you need more magnesium. It helps the body do so many things. I have been taking extra magnesium for over two decades and have found lots of ways to help you get more magnesium into your body.

Magnesium Through The Skin

Discovering that the body efficiently absorbs magnesium through the skin has been a game-changer for me. Unlike supplements, which can lead to excess magnesuim and digestive issues, magnesium-infused bath salts, oils, soaps, and gels provide a balanced and effective way to replenish magnesium levels. These products are specifically sourced from magnesium chloride from the Dead Sea, and are of the highest quality, meeting the same standards used in dialysis solutions for kidney patients.

After trying numerous products, I've found that these Dead Sea magnesium supplements stand out as the best. In just 3-4 weeks of regular use through baths, topical application, or foot soaks, you can restore optimal magnesium levels in your body. And once replenished, maintaining those levels only requires occasional supplementation—just a couple of times a week.

One of the great advantages of these products is their quick absorption. After applying them to the skin and waiting just a few minutes until they feel dry, you can wash them off without concern, knowing that the magnesium has already been absorbed.

Among the various forms available, I really love the  Magnesium Bath Crystals—an intensely concentrated dry form of magnesium oil that I simply can't get enough of. I love taking magnesium baths before bed. I sleep so much better! Magnesium is often referred to as the "relaxation mineral" because of its ability to relax muscles and calm the nervous system. Taking a magnesium bath before bedtime can help ease tension in your muscles, reduce stress, and create a sense of calmness, all of which contribute to a more restful and rejuvenating sleep.

Sometimes, magnesium products can get a little itchy as they dry on the skin, and we have one product with aloe that helps with this.

Magnesium Prill Water

I recently started making Magnesium Prill Water, and it's incredibly simple! All you need are magnesium prills, which you place in a gallon glass jar for at least an hour. My kids affectionately call it "homemade water," and I can't get enough of its refreshing taste. We make gallons of iced tea each week, and now I use this special water—trust me, it tastes even better!

What are Magnesium Prills and How Do They Transform Water?
Magnesium prills treat water by reducing its surface tension and creating smaller water clusters. These smaller clusters penetrate more effectively, hydrating and detoxifying the body better than regular water. Certified by NSF/ANSI, FCC Grade, and OU as Kosher, these prills are kiln-dried to last for years, usable thousands of times.

Benefits of Thin Water
This "thin water," also known as restructured, hexagonal, magnetized, or living water, makes up less than 10% of ordinary tap water. Magnesium prills convert regular water into this hexagonal form, which better hydrates cells. You can truly feel the difference—it tastes lighter and smoother. You can also add prills to spring water, filtered water, or any water you drink to enhance the benefits.

Health Enhancements
Magnesium Prill Water boosts nutrient absorption and toxin elimination, enhancing overall health. The water's improved structure allows it to penetrate cell gaps more effectively, aiding in proper cell function and communication. Various factors like diet, genetics, toxins, and illness can disrupt cell hydration and spacing. Prill water helps restore these aspects, promoting alkalinity and health.

Drinking Magnesium Prill Water, combined with a balanced diet, supports the body's natural processes, leading to better overall well-being. Remember, simply drinking alkalizing beverages won't make you healthy if you maintain an acidic diet.

Magnesium Prill Water is the form of water required for all life processes in the body. It enhances hydration, detoxification, and nutrient absorption making it a simple yet powerful addition to your daily routine. Listen to my podcast at the bottom of this post for more info.

It is quite well known that we all need more magnesium. Most people are very deficient in magnesium which affects 325 processes in the body. Tune in to listen to my guest, an expert in this field, Laura Collinwood. We talk about magnesium, why we need it, and how to get it in a form the body easily receives.
