What Do You Really Know about Magnesium?

Did you know that 57% of the U.S. population doesn’t meet daily magnesium requirements according to the USDA?1 Here’s what that means for you… Magnesium plays an integral role "in more than 300 chemical reactions that keep the body working properly," including "the proper growth and maintenance of bones...nerves, muscles, and many other parts of the body."2

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.

How important is it to get your magnesium? Check out what the science tells us...


Heart Health: Studies have shown that people with low magnesium levels "are 6-7 times more likely to have metabolic syndrome (a condition that increases risk for diabetes and heart disease) than people with normal magnesium levels."3 Research has shown higher levels of magnesium are "significantly associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease," and that "higher magnesium intakes might reduce the risk of stroke."3


Bone Health: Magnesium can play a role in bone loss prevention; one study demonstrated that "bone density of all [magnesium] treated patients increased significantly" when compared to the untreated control group.4 Because magnesium is "involved in bone formation," studies have shown that deficiency "might be a risk factor for osteoporosis."3


Headaches: Magnesium deficiency is connected to "factors that promote headaches, such as neurotransmitter release and vasoconstriction [the constriction of blood vessels]".3 It has been found that "people who experience migraine headaches have lower levels of serum and tissue magnesium than those who do not."3


Energy:  Magnesium is "required for energy production."3 One study showed that "patients [with CFS - Chronic Fatigue Syndrome] treated with magnesium claimed to have improved energy levels, better emotional state, and less pain," leading researchers to conclude that "magnesium may have a role in CFS."5


Sleep: Tossing and turning at night? Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include "sleep disorders" including "insomnia."6


What People Are Saying

“So far this amazing spray has stopped joint pain and severe fibromyalgia attacks in short order. It has also proved helpful for backaches. Wondering what else it can do???” – LindaWhen I use your magnesium, my hands and feet feel much better (well, all of me really). I also think it's 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 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

The Most Effective Way to Get Your Magnesium

Our magnesium oil is a convenient way to get magnesium straight into your bloodstream through your skin. It involves a groundbreaking process which infuses magnesium minerals into purified water up to the saturation point required for optimal absorption and maximum cellular retention. This is what gives our magnesium oil the ability to penetrate quickly and deeply. It’s highly absorbable and many people say that it does not cause itching the way that other magnesium oils do… “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 Cacao PowderAnother 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!
