Magnesium plays an integral role in over 300 of your body’s functions, from muscle relaxation and regulating blood pressure, to maintaining a healthy immune system and bone health.2
On other words, magnesium intake is vital for heart health,2 bone loss prevention,3 and pain relief for certain types of pain and headaches.4 It even plays a role in energy production and has been found to improve symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.5
Derived from Dead Sea salt, our magnesium oil is made using only the purest, most absorbable, food/pharmaceutical grade Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate. Other magnesium oils can contain toxic heavy metals and are usually made of Magnesium Chloride, which tends to offer minimal infusion of magnesium, or simply coat the skin without being absorbed at all. Our magnesium oil is almost instantaneously absorbed through the skin, channeled directly to the cellular level where the magnesium can immediately begin to do its work in your body.
“When I use your magnesium, my hands and feet feel much better (well, all of me really). I also think its helping my circulation.” – Ashley
“I get quite a few headaches, even migraines. I’ve read and heard from multiple sources that migraine sufferers are often deficient in magnesium. I keep the magnesium oil on the nightstand, which makes it easy to remember and use. I experience fewer headaches, which I believe is in part to the oil.” – Kristine
Heart Disease: Magnesium deficiency can actually increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.6 Since magnesium can affect the regulation of blood pressure, a healthy intake may help in preventing high blood pressure which is one of the risk factors of cardiovascular disease.6
Type 2 Diabetes: Diets with higher amounts of magnesium are associated with a significantly lower risk of diabetes . This is because of the role this mineral plays in glucose metabolism and the release of insulin, which helps control blood sugar levels.6
Migraines: Magnesium deficiency is connected to factors that promote headaches, such as neurotransmitter release and the constriction of blood vessels.6 It has been found that people who experience migraines have lower magnesium levels than those who do not.6
Sleep: Tossing and turning at night? Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include sleep disorders, too.7
“A lot of people don’t realize that poor quality of sleep could be because of a magnesium deficiency. In addition to magnesium pills, I spray on Sunfood’s Pure and Potent Magnesium Oil — especially before bed. I rub it into my arms, legs and feet just before lights out for extra deep sleep. Without this oil, I do not sleep well at all.” – Connie
“Just a few sprays helps relieve any muscle pain, and I am happy that it doesn’t cause any itchiness like other magnesium products I’ve used.”– Lauren
“Love it!!! This magnesium oil really works!!” – Mans
Another fun (and delicious) way to get your magnesium is cacao powder, otherwise known as raw chocolate, which is naturally very rich in magnesium (35% RDA per serving). Mix it with your favorite smoothie or use in dessert recipes for a chocolaty boost!
