What is Magnesium Oil?
Magnesium oil is inexpensive and easy-to-use supplement claimed to improve sleep, ease aches and pains, relieve PMS, and improve retention of calcium in the body, among many other benefits. Some circles even proclaim magnesium oil as a “wonder supplement” that can benefit almost everyone who takes it.
How Does it Work?
Most proponents of magnesium oil suggest you apply it to your body in the form of a spray (it is absorbed better in this manner rather than via an oral supplement). The spray comes into contact with your skin and gets to work immediately. Often times we take vitamins and supplements and can never be quite sure that what we are taking is doing us any good, but proponents claim that the effects of magnesium oil are noticeable right away.
This blog writer was skeptical of the extraordinary claims made by those who love it, so I decided to embark on a personal experiment and try it every day for two weeks. Note that this is my personal testimonial and not an endorsement by Teeter.I was shocked to find that I fell asleep faster and slept more soundly on the nights I applied it right before bed (I sprayed 5 sprays on my lower back and hips and rubbed it in). After a particularly hard workout, I would spray the oil on my muscles and I experienced almost no soreness the next day!
A Magnesium Oil Deficiency?
Some studies suggest that as much as 68% of the US population is deficient in magnesium – a crucial supplement in our bodies. While magnesium is naturally occurring in many foods and even hard water, we frequently ingest alcohol, caffeine and carbonated beverages that work to leach magnesium out of our bodies and cause the deficiency. A daily dose of magnesium spray is said to help restore the lost supplement in our bodies.
If you have any health concerns or medical questions about using magnesium oil, please consult with your doctor first. It is important to note that you should not use magnesium oil while on some medications without first seeking the advise if your doctor.
