Magnesium Chloride Oil- Good for What Ails You?

Here again is another topic from the files of reader requests.  Today we are looking at the virtues of using magnesium chloride oil to help add to healthy living activities.

Magnesium chloride oil isn’t really oil, though.  It is basically a salt compound saturated to give it a liquid property.  Unlike a mineral or other true oil, it absorbs into the skin without leaving a greasy feeling.

Magnesium is a critical mineral for our very livelihood, because it is used by every system.  The bones house about half the total magnesium, but it is also needed in muscular development and function, in the nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues, and in every organ.  This includes skin.

The popularity of this topical mineral solution is only just now being seen.  But not because it’s brand new.  Consider it an example of everything old becoming new again.

Epsom salt, or magnesium sulfate, has long been used as a home remedy to treat a variety of ailments ranging from sore or injured joints to certain skin issues.

The difference is that with Epsom salts, the user has to run a bath or at least a small tub of warm water and immerse the affected area in it for about a half hour.  If you have had a really stressful day and you are headed for a hot bath anyway, this is definitely going to soothe more than just irritated skin.

Soaking in a hot bath is one of those really overlooked but cheap stress-busters that encourages relaxation of the mind and body all at the same time.  It also stimulates the largest organ of your body- the skin.  Combining a magnesium salt with it helps to nourish the skin, condition it, and make it smoother.

But what if you don’t have the time for a full bath or just want to be able to make use of the benefits of magnesium salts wherever you are?

This is where magnesium chloride oil has been gaining so much popularity.  Because it is already in a liquid form, promoters of the “oil” say that it is a great addition to any on-the-go collection of naturopathic aids.

Proponents of this form of magnesium like it because of how easily it is absorbed through the skin.  Absorption is a very effective way of introducing vitamins, minerals, and other compounds into the body, because it doesn’t involve having to take capsules or drink liquids.

People who have bowel disorders or stomach issues have a hard time with magnesium pills, since nausea, vomiting and diarrhea make digestive absorption nearly impossible.

Additionally, people who are very active and work out a lot typically have a number of supplements they are already taking and being able to move one needed mineral to a different mode of absorption is nice- especially when massaging it into the skin also provides a relaxing therapy in itself.

There is such a thing as an overdose, though.  We have mentioned before that too much of a good thing can simply be too much, so make sure that your doctor or nutritionist is aware of what you are supplementing with because of toxicity.

People who have kidney issues will be particularly susceptible to the dangers of overdose because it is the kidney’s job to filter out this and other minerals that become too abundant in the body.  Magnesium is similar to vitamin C in this way, as both have the same properties toxicity wise.

However, if you are not already taking a magnesium supplement or a medication that would interact negatively with magnesium, the massage oil route is a very promising one simply because most people are deficient in this very critical mineral.

Magnesium deficiencies cause problems with bone density, muscle mass, circulation, and other systems throughout the body, so finding  a good supplement might be as easy as applying it in liquid form to the driest parts of the body…which will improve the skin where it is applied as well.

    Magnesium lowers Blood Pressure!! So all those who have a problem with High BP -but then again watch your kidney function!!- can supplement with Magnesium to lower your BP . The Transdermal route suggested here is one I use regularly- and it works!! Relaxes and as mentioned in the Blog- helps with Arthritic Pains, restless Leg Syndrome!!! etc. etc. You can purchse this from ANCIENT MINERALS – Go to the website- google ANCIENT MINERALS -BY LL MAGNETIC CLAY – They deliver fast- andthe Oils/Gels all incorporating Magnesium Chloride are very good.
