Several researchers and studies have supported this, noting a significant decrease in PMS symptoms when Magnesium levels are increased daily via supplementation. On a study of 192 women increasing their Magnesium levels daily for PMS, 95% experienced less breast pain, had less weight gain, 89% suffered less nervous tension and 43% had fewer headaches... where do we sign up?
Shall we jump straight in?
This is such a hot topic at the moment with new findings and breakthroughs popping up regularly, we decided it's time to dig a little deeper and find out if maybe, just maybe Magnesium can help...
Premenstrual Syndrome otherwise known as PMS is a group of symptoms that occur in women typically between ovulation and a period. Magnesium plays such an important role in normal cell function Melvyn R.Werbach believes that the borderline Magnesium levels typically seen in PMS patients can explain most PMS symptoms.
Other PMS symptoms reduced with increased Magnesium intake include:
• Breast tenderness
• Fluid retention
• Food cravings
• Weight gain
• Stress & Anxiety
• Headaches & migraines
We recommend increasing your overall Magnesium levels with any of our Pain Relief Magnesium, especially in the week before your monthlies – applying on the upper body in the morning and the lower at night. You can also apply your Amazing Oils symptomatically on the lower abdomen to assist in easing pain and cramping of the uterus, often experienced with during painful periods.

Another crucial benefit to women maintaining sufficient Magnesium levels is the positive effect it can have on their mood and ability to get quality rest.
Irritability, low mood, anxiety, stress and insomnia are all symptoms commonly experienced by women, especially during times of hormonal change and surprisingly can often (although not always) be linked to a Magnesium deficiency - see there's an actual medical reason, knew it.
Considered the ‘most powerful relaxation mineral’, Magnesium has a calming effect on the nervous system, so it can be used quite effectively to calm irritated and over-excited nerves, promoting relaxation. Magnesium is also required to release adequate amounts of the ‘happy hormone’ serotonin, which in turn is critical for mood regulation and balanced mental functioning.
So you can only imagine, what would happen to your mood and stress levels if your body were deficit of Magnesium... People, take cover!
To obtain the benefits of Magnesium for mood regulation, we recommend applying your 250ml Pain Relief Spray Magnesium or 60ml Pain Relief Gel Roll-On twice daily – on the upper body in the morning and lower body at night. For stress and anxiety, apply to the chest in the morning (although avoid applying Magnesium on the upper body at night, as some people can experience an energising effect – due to its ability to activate adenosine triphosphate, also known as ATP).
