Many Researchers Call Magnesium ‘The Anti-Aging Mineral’
The body uses magnesium to rest, recover from stress, re-hydrate cells, restore energy levels and strengthen bones. Magnesium and moisture provide more shock absorbing capacity for bones because magnesium has a strong affinity with water. Cells need it to be present in water in order to hydrate better. Magnesium is arguably the most important mineral electrolyte in the body for that reason. If magnesium levels drop too low bones cells start to leak out their calcium stores and this is the beginning of osteoporosis.
Magnesium helps electrical and nervous system conductance in the body, as well as keeping the fluidity of our blood circulation and lymph system normal. In a sense, magnesium and water help to keep us younger and ‘juicier’!
In order to maintain our electrolyte fluids we also need the good oils (cholesterol fats) which stop our water from evaporating into the atmosphere. The cell membrane is made up of a lipid bi-layer, which has channels that open and close, letting wastes out and allowing nutrients in. The good fats help us to stay well lubricated, keeping the moisture where it is supposed to be. The skin barrier is a similar version of protective membrane.
As 99% of magnesium in the body is stored in muscle and bone, blood levels are not accurate indicators of total body magnesium levels. Muscle and bone cells can sacrifice their stored magnesium in order to keep blood levels normal. By the time we show up with low magnesium levels in blood, it indicates much more severe magnesium depletion in the rest of the body. As we age, magnesium levels drop lower and lower and it becomes very difficult to get enough magnesium via digestion alone. However, magnesium via skin can bypass the digestive system and allow the body to drink up what it needs for replenishment.
Magnesium is Essential for Bone Health
Scientific studies show, “Positive associations between greater intakes of dietary magnesium and grip strength, indices of skeletal muscle mass, and BMD in men and women in middle and older age groups.” These studies suggest that magnesium supplementation may help with strategies to prevent sarcopenia, frailty, falls, and fractures.
Another bonus with Zest Citrus Magnesium Cream is that insects like mosquitoes and midges don’t like the naturally occurring citronella in the essential oils of this cream. Rich plant oils and butters nurture and protect skin, leaving a silky smooth finish. Use as daily natural face and body moisturizer, before & after sun skin care, deodorant and muscle massage cream. Made with natural and organic ingredients and 2 teaspoons provide 300mg elemental magnesium – an average daily magnesium supplement – which is more magnesium delivered to cells than by tablets or powders. And it works faster too!
Some individuals may need two or three times the average daily magnesium requirement in cases of more severe magnesium deficiency or high levels of stress. In this case extra magnesium can be supplied via Elektra Magnesium Oil Spritz, Elektra Magnesium Charge Lotion, as well as foot soaking or bathing with Elektra Magnesium Flakes.
There is no risk of overdose with transdermal magnesium because the body only takes up from the epidermis the magnesium that it can deal with at any one time. The skin acts in this way as a reservoir of nutrients – a bit like a dinner plate or smorgasbord. There are no chemicals in Elektra Magnesium products which artificially interfere with the healthy working of the skin barrier. The rich plant oils and butters help hold the magnesium ions inside the epidermal layer until used by the body. Zest Citrus Magnesium Cream helps keep the skin well hydrated, plumped up and protected for several hours after application.
