Ingredient Highlight: Magnesium Chloride – The Healthy Farm Girl

Ingredient Highlight: Magnesium Chloride

Why is Magnesium so Important?

Magnesium is found in every cell of your body. It is needed for your body to function! It is necessary for nerve signals, bone health, muscle function, and production and transportation of energy. 

Studies show that only about 50% people in the US get close to the recommended daily dose. Magnesium deficiency is rampant in the US, as our soils have gotten depleted from the nutrients and our food no longer has the nourishment it has had in the past. 

People who exercise need an even greater amount of magnesium to boost energy and increase mobility and flexibility.

What are the signs of Magnesium Deficiency?

Keep in mind, most symptoms don't appear unless your body is severely deficient. The reason why you would be deficient could be due to diabetes, celiac, bone disease, alcoholism, poor absorption, and poor diet (lack of fresh vegetables). Some of the signs you could be deficient include:

- Muscle Twitches and Spasms (could be painful)

- Anxiety

- Insomnia/Poor sleep

- Tiredness/General Fatigue

- High Blood Pressure/Irregular Heart Beat

- Constipation

Why Magnesium Chloride?

The reason why Magnesium chloride (Magnesium oil) is used in our products is because of it's molecular structure. The molecule absorbs easily through the skin and goes directly into the bloodstream, working quickly and effectively. This dynamic approach to magnesium intake is revolutionary for those who have poor absorption of magnesium orally.
