Essential magnesium to help you unknot, unwind and ease tension. Created in a spray for optimal absorption, the formula is fortified with calming lavender oil and healing arnica extract. Use before bed as a sleep aid, or post-workout to speed up muscle recovery.
When taken in a capsule or tablet, as little as 4% of magnesium will actually be absorbed, whereas when magnesium taken 'trans-dermally', or through the skin, it will absorb 5x faster and more effectively as it is absorbed directly into the bloodstream.
Magnesium is essential for the functioning of our nervous system, muscles, brain and is crucial in the metabolization of key vitamins, including Vitamin D. It is estimated that up to 80% of Americans do not have adequate magnesium levels.
Transdermal magnesium has been proven to be more effective than oral supplements such as tablets and capsules in delivering magnesium to the body. Unlike topical supplements which are designed to have an effect at the site of application, transdermal supplements penetrate the skin to be carried through the body. When applied directly to the skin, the magnesium enters the body quickly, bypassing the digestive system where many nutrients, including magnesium, are poorly absorbed.
Magnesium can also help reduce muscle tension and spasms, which can be painful and often occur as we fall asleep. Magnesium encourages the body to absorb calcium?another abundant mineral essential to good health?and prevent muscles and soft tissues from calcifying (hardening due to excess calcium). Inside the body, calcium and magnesium are in ?competition?, binding with the same proteins within your muscles. A build-up of calcium causes muscles to over-contract, leading to spasms or twitches. Magnesium regulates those contractions and allows the muscles to relax.
