Studies show that most Americans have magnesium deficient diets, with one in five getting less than half the RDA for magnesium in their daily diets. 1
Magnesium works within our cells — the powerhouses, factories and regulators of the body’s systems. Its crucial role in over 300 fundamental biochemical reactions affects the brain, the muscles, the heart and blood vessels, and ultimately our overall health and well-being.
Yet magnesium has been placed on the short list of nutrients of concern by the U.S. Department of Health 2 due to widespread low intake. While many are aware of the importance of calcium, the parallel and in some ways even more crucial role of magnesium is less widely known.
Dr. Carolyn Dean, M.D., naturopathic doctor, and author of The Magnesium Miracle has said:
The real miracle is that that modern man gets by as well as he does with so little of this essential nutrient. A hundred years ago — before we depleted our soil with greedy agricultural practices — the average person received at least 500 mg of magnesium a day, according to the US Department of Agriculture. Without supplementation, in 2009, even on a pure organic diet, you’re looking at only 150 mg at best. Those on a pure McDonald’s diet may be lucky to get 50 mg. And we may need between 600 and 900 mg… per day!” 3
Oral supplementation, on the other hand, encounters difficulties of absorption due to problems in the GI tract. Because all magnesium taken orally is potentially laxative, the ability to absorb magnesium through the GI tract is limited by shortened transit time.
Oral magnesium can be inconvenient as well, due to the amount needed for adequate dosage, and of course the need to swallow large pills. And sufficient magnesium is usually not added to multi-vitamins.
Considering these difficulties, topical magnesium shows clear benefits. Magnesium lotion, the gentlest form of topical magnesium, is:
Experts such as Dr. Mark Sircus, Ac. O.M.D., author of the book Transdermal Magnesium Therapy welcome topical magnesium as an exciting new way to enhance your intake. According to Dr. Sircus:
Just applying it to the skin like you would suntan lotion, it goes right through the skin. So, you can put this on the body and combine it with touch, and you’re getting into an area, I call it “magnesium massage”… It’s for me the best way of applying magnesium. ” 4
