"Magnesium is vitally important to over 300 processes in our bodies, but very few of us get enough of it. Even those of us with an excellent, nutrient-dense diet are probably not getting enough magnesium. The problem is that our soil is horribly depleted. When a food says that it contains x amount of magnesium, that can be very misleading. In optimal growing conditions and magnesium-rich soil, it might be an accurate number, but that is seldom the situation. On top of a lack of magnesium in the diet, many prescription drugs can actually deplete magnesium. When we’re stressed, we burn through magnesium at an accelerated rate." - sourced from "realtradtions"
Magnesium Deficiencies are known to cause symptoms such as:
Leg Cramps, Restless Leg Syndrome, Anxiety, Growing Pains, Sleep Disorders, Irritability, Nausea and Vomiting, Abnormal heart rhythms, Low blood pressure, Confusion, Muscle spasm and Weakness, Hyperventilation, insomnia, Poor nail growth, and even Seizures
How To Use Magnesium Lotion
"Topical magnesium takes 20 to 30 minutes to be absorbed, so don’t put it anywhere that you will be washing within half an hour. If you want, you can wash it off after this time.
Each person has their own individual magnesium level that they need to function well.
We have determined these amounts by starting with a tiny bit and increasing until we are sleeping better and have no symptoms of magnesium deficiency, such as arrhythmia, leg/foot cramps and insomnia.
For adults, we use at least 1/3 teaspoon every single day. During times of high stress, we’ll double that amount.
Each Tsp. contains aprox. 150-170 grams of magnesium. I've pasted a chart of general guidelines for magnesium dosing below.
"According to the company that I order the magnesium from, overdosing on magnesium through the skin isn't a danger because the skin regulates how much is absorbed according to what is needed. I haven’t tested that out, but I certainly wouldn't panic if one of my girls rubbed a ton of magnesium lotion on. Just be sure your littles can’t get into the bottles to eat the lotion. This lotion is for external use only.
Below I've listed some of our favorite ways to use magnesium lotion, apart from our regular daily use.
Rub into leg/foot to ease and prevent leg and foot cramps.
Mix with a few teaspoons of almond oil and use as a back massage oil.
Rub a pea-sized amount at the base of the skull and the back of the neck to relieve a tension headache.
Massage into lower back to relax injured/sore back muscles.
Rub onto the stomach right before bed for deeper sleep.
I plan to use it daily to prevent/reduce morning sickness and pregnancy heartburn."

** PLEASE note this is not a "miracle muscle rub" it works over time, 4 weeks of continual use so that your body can use and regulate the mineral to see lasting effects - it's just like a vitamin, you generally don't feel it's effects that day, but you can tell as soon as you stop using it. This isn't just for sore muscles, I encourage you to read the articles above and see just how much our bodies need and use this natural element.

Here is what others are saying!
I just want to share that I've been using the magnesium lotion for a couple weeks now, and it has been a life saver for helping with my morning sickness! I was desperate for some relief, and this did it! It also helps me sleep better, and I have more energy during the day. This lotion is amazing!
I felt like I had twisted my knee this morning (old knee injury from middle school) and I rubbed some of Paige's Magnesium lotion "MAG MUSCLE" on it and felt instantly better. It wasn't 100% but it was at least 60% better then it was. And I haven't had any other issues with it all day. That stuff is amazing!!! I also used it when I recently had a pinched nerve in my lower back (along with PT, ibuprofen & other meds) but I feel like it would loosen up that stiff morning pain and let me get on with my day. So happy I got some!
