Spray-on Magnesium? Really?

February 26, 2019 3 min read

Why would you put a mineral, essential for health, on your skin instead of in your mouth?

Let us ignore, for the moment, that some forms of magnesium (such as magnesium oxide which is 'virtually insoluble in water',) simply go straight through you with less than 5% absorption giving you what some doctors are calling 'expensive pee'. Let us remember that you need magnesium to help to regulate copper, potassium, zinc, vitamin D and calcium levels within your body. Did you know that there is NO effective way to check your magnesium levels with a blood test? This is because low blood magnesium readings may have serious pathological repercussions. This is unfortunately, not common knowledge amongst health practitioners.

Basically, your body guards its blood/magnesium levels carefully. When there is a magnesium deficiency, the body will pull magnesium (causing further depletion) from your soft tissue in order to keep blood levels stable.

So if a blood test is ineffective, how can you know how much magnesium you need?

 

Magnesium Deficiency is Widespread

Magnesium deficiency is relatively common. The results of a deficiency are widespread and according to some medical research, quite (in their words) "staggering."

I have no desire to cause a panic by listing some of the multitude of symptoms that can indicate low magnesium levels, especially when you can 'ask Google' yourself. Some of the less dramatic include twitching, cramping, insomnia, body or muscle pain, lower back issues, stress, headaches and many similar problems which might get us reaching for painkillers.

When taken as pills, powders, solutions or capsules, studies have shown that oral magnesium can cause 'bowel motility' or cramping and diarrhoea. Indeed, some oral manufacturers recommend that you take more and more until...you have an accident!

Most of your body's magnesium (around 50%) is held in your muscles and soft tissue. My current understanding is that it is not distributed equally to all parts of the body. When there is an inflammation, due to sickness or an injury, the body sends calcium ions to the area to help bring health back. A healthy cell means low calcium and high magnesium levels. Calcium particles can lodge anywhere in the body which can cause harm. Adequate magnesium levels help dissolve these calcifications.

Your bloods' magnesium levels stay relatively stable. In order to dissolve build-ups of calcium around inflammation or old injuries, simply taking oral supplements may not adequately raise the magnesium in that area.

Benefits of Topical Magnesium

Using topical or transdermal magnesium means you can direct extra magnesium exactly where it is needed and bring speedy relief. Your bodys magnesium levels may not be unduly low, but if you are having, for example, knee problems or say, headaches, then trying to raise your body's magnesium levels with oral magnesium may simply not get the job done. And anyway, who wants to wait for hours or days to see if something is working?

With topical magnesium you will know in seconds or minutes.

 

Transdermal Magnesium (through your skin)

Transdermaltechnology is still not widely understood by many health professionals, despite the amazing successes of nicotine patches etc. Its not really a new thing though, people have been flocking to spa baths for thousands of years. Luckily, there is now recent medical research proving that magnesium can pass through the most impermeable levels of the skin, the Stratum Corneum.

Caution: There are a number of copy-cat companies now offering 'magnesium' sprays on line and in pharmacies. Many are back-yard operators using Chinese chemicals with no regulation. Please ask your pharmacist if the product is listed with the TGA or only buy genuine Amazing Oils products.
