Mag­ne­sium bath flakes, oil and sprays

Good Health (Australia) - - Be Inspired -

A po­tent min­eral in­volved in more than 300 chem­i­cal re­ac­tions in the body, mag­ne­sium plays a role in ev­ery­thing from mood, sleep qual­ity and im­mu­nity to heart­beat reg­u­la­tion and blood glu­cose con­trol. “Any­one who has a re­fined diet, drinks al­co­hol or is stressed has a higher re­quire­ment for mag­ne­sium,” says natur­opath Ali­son Mitchell. Clues that you might have low lev­els in­clude mus­cle ten­sion and cramps, stress and anx­i­ety, in­som­nia, ten­sion headaches and lethargy. The top­i­cal form of mag­ne­sium – bath flakes, oils, gels and sprays – is a good al­ter­na­tive to sup­ple­ments, which can cause stom­ach ir­ri­ta­tion. Try using top­i­cal mag­ne­sium at the end of the day to soothe your ner­vous sys­tem be­fore bed­time.
