Magnesium is a safe and essential dietary mineral which we require every day. The majority of us are not getting enough through our diet due to a multitude of factors such as diet, medication, alcohol consumption, stress, and illness.
The transdermal application of magnesium is said to be more bioavailable than taking oral supplements. Oral magnesium can be affected by numbers things in your gut and could be destroyed before the magnesium even enters your system properly.
It can especially help with muscle pain, cramping (including pregnancy-related), and stiffness and can be applied directly to the trouble area with immediate results, rather than waiting for it to work its way through your GI tract.
