Mg – Magnesium ~ Are you magnesium deficient?

(Mg) – Magnesium ~ Are you magnesium deficient?

Hi Friends! Welcome back 🙂

If you are new here, Welcome. Make yourself at home! And please subscribe, so you can be one of the first to find out about my next article!

As I have told you in some of my past articles here & here, I have some skin issues that aren’t fun! Dry skin for one! But I also suffer from chronic pain and chronic muscle spasms.

I recently read about Magnesium deficiency, that it can cause a boat load of problems. A lot of problems that I suffer from. Am I magnesium deficient? Possibly!

What is Magnesium?

Magnesium is a mineral that is essential for about 300 chemical reactions in the human body. Maintaining your energy level, heart health and your blood vessels are just a few, as well as bones, nerves, and muscles.

Magnesium Deficiency!

I decided to do some more research and found that Magnesium deficiency is actually pretty common. 2.5 – 15% of the general population are considered Magnesium deficient. Where only 32% of people get the recommended daily allowance!

Where do we get Magnesium?

 

Dietary Sources:

A good way to remember magnesium enriched foods is to think of fiber! Generally foods that are high in fiber are high in magnesium as well. Such as; whole grains, legumes(beans), seeds, nuts, and vegetables, green leafy ones!

Supplements:

Most multivitamins/ multimineral supplements contain Magnesium. For instance Centrum Multivitamin/Multimineral Supplement.

You can also get just a Magnesium supplement. For instance, Nature Made Magnesium.

Topically:

Some people also apply Magnesium oil to their skin to treat different skin disorders. Pure Zechstein Magnesium Oil Spray is one on the market as well as a bunch of others. Click here to search amazon!

Have you ever had your doctor or someone tell you, go take a bath in Epsom salt.Well Epsom salt is not actually salt but a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate.

It is also in a bunch of lotions and creams on the market as well. I just picked up this: Magnesium Enriched Organic Shea Body Butter! It’s really helping with my dry skin. I have also been applying it to my PMLE rash (PolyMorphic Light Eruption) and it really seems to be taking the itch and bumps away!

Magnesium Enriched Organic Shea Body Butter:

This stuff is great. Like I said above I have applied it to my PMLE rash and it’s really helping. I have been using it for about a week and a half. The bumps are fading and the itch is subsiding. It did not work immediately. But over the time frame I have been using it I would say it’s well worth the wait. Especially, if it can give you some relief from one heck of an itch, like it did me.

I also must mention I have been rubbing the Magnesium Enriched Organic Shea Body Butter on my more severe muscle spasm areas and although I can’t tell a huge difference, but I do notice that I can move my neck a little more “easier.”

Texture:

Now, I am not one to use a lot of B&B products but when I saw this product is “BODY BUTTER” I thought it to be a lot more smoother almost like a whipped type product. But it definitely is not, it is hard almost like wax and a tad gritty. Once you get it on your warm skin it melts into a great product. That original texture though is not pleasing to me.

    • Not sure of your situation but you can always ask your doctor to run some blood tests. 🙂

  • a number of people are magnesium deficient and i love using it topically. there’s a magnesium oil night spray and a body scrub from life-flo i use regularly. i haven’t seen it in shea butter before, so thanks for sharing, i always think it’s fun to hear about new products.

    • it works great Jessica. You should definitely try it 🙂

  • Stefanie Resciniti

    I gave a magnesium spray, but I always forget to use it. I probably would use this product more regularly because it is a cream. I love shea butter. Sounds like a good combo!

    • It really is Stef it helped my rash from the sun 🙂

  • i should look into this. I probably dont get the amount i need

    • a lot of people dont get enough.

  • Wow…A body butter? and out of Magnesium?! This is interesting.
