magnesium tablets or transdermal oil

Magnesium is not stored in your body so you need it daily. Whether you take magnesium tablets or transdermal oil or via your food, it doesn’t matter we just need it daily as there are many hundreds of your Enzyme Systems that couldn’t complete their daily functions without magnesium in your body, . It is also the fourth most abundant mineral in the body and our body needs its ion charge to add aid to all the systems and cellular exchanges to work. For example, magnesium is needed in 6 of the 8 steps required to make ATP in our cell . ATP is what create our cellular energy..

Magnesium is the key ingredient to creating our energy-ATP- Tablets or Oil or Food.

 Magnesium is the key ingredient to make the energy of chlorophyll in our plants, just like iron is required to create energy in our blood This is a simplistic overview, yet chlorophyll and hemoglobin are similar in every way except one, blood needs iron for energy and chlorophyll needs magnesium for energy. The plants we eat convert the magnesium so it is more bioavailable.  

Let’s quickly look at what magnesium does for your body before we talk about whether you should take it internally or put it on extremely Transdermally. Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in your body. It is used in so many energy exchanges especially with ATP –Adenosine triphosphate  which is the energy source within your cells. In summary, f you don’t have enough magnesium in your cells then you don’t have enough energy.

5 TESTS to find out if you Magnesium Deficient.

You can go to your doctor or your health professional and one of these 5 tests. Each test measures a different part of the body so understanding what the tests are doing will help you choose what is right for you. The five magnesium tests are listed below yet I go into more detail here. Another way is to look at what is happening in your body by checking it against the 100 indicators we can be Magnesium deficient.

  1. SERUM – Serum Ionized magnesium
  2. RBC – Red Blood Cell
  3. IONIC – NMR – Intracellular Free Magnesium
  4. EXA TEST -Sublingual Magnesium Assay
  5. TOLERANCE – Magnesium Loading Test

Which magnesium should I take for best absorption?

BOTH is the right answer as each magnesium does certain things. There are 20 different types of magnesium that I have listed near the bottom on my HOME PAGE. under the heading is there more than one magnesium. Let’s talk about the ones that are useful for you internally and the ones that are useful for externally as in transdermally on the skin.

  • Magnesium Aspartate
  • Magnesium Bicarbonate
  • Magnesium Carbonate
  • Magnesium Chloride
  • Magnesium Citrate
  • Magnesium Fluoride
  • Magnesium Gluconate
  • Magnesium Glutamate
  • Magnesium Glycinate
  • Magnesium Hydroxide
  • Magnesium Lactate
  • Magnesium L-threonate
  • Magnesium Lysinate
  • Magnesium Malate
  • Magnesium Orotate
  • Magnesium Oxalate
  • Magnesium Oxide
  • Magnesium Phosphate
  • Magnesium Sulphate
  • Magnesium Taurate

Supplementing with magnesium can provide benefits, but certain forms of magnesium can support your body better than others when taken externally or internally. It doesn’t matter what challenges you are concerned about in your health and wellbeing, it is more about getting magnesium into your body effectively and efficiently. Remember, it is important to get magnesium through your food as well.

QUICK NOTE – It is worth looking at the how to get it into your diet with foods your enjoy. Craving Chocolate is sure indicator that you need magnesium, especially if you are a female and about to head into the 3rd week of your cycle. More about that in foods rich with magnesium article.

Bioavailable Magnesium Tablets

The bioavailability of a vitamin or mineral simply means how available is the product for your body to use immediately or does it need a process to absorb it.

Magnesium tablets or transdermal oil

It would be wonderful if we received all our nutrients today through food like we were able to once and even though the supplements we take yet we don’t. So, it’s important to know the bioavailability of the magnesium you are taking. Magnesium Malate, Magnesium Glycinate and Magnesium Taurate are known to be more bioavailable. It would make sense to check out your supplement to see if they contain these forms of magnesium.

NON- Bioavailable Magnesium is Transdermal Magnesium

magnesium chloride

Magnesium oxide, magnesium sulphate and magnesium chloride are less bioavailable which means they have a lower absorption rate in the body. Lower absorption means you need to take more, which means you are more likely to go through the digestive system and not be absorbed into the blood therefore into your body’s cells. They are best for transdermal use.

General Use Of Magnesium Tablets

Use both Magnesium Glycinate and Magnesium Malate

To Support Brain Health.

Most magnesium crosses the blood-brain barrier, which is impressive as not a lot of medication, food and supplements cross the blood-brain barrier. Even just a handful of essential oils do too.  It is a good thing that our brain I s so protected. Both Magnesium Orotate, Magnesium L –Threonate can support the brain health.

Gastrointestinal health

Magnesium Citrate and Magnesium lactate – Milk of Magnesia which is liquid Magnesium Oxide

Heart Health

Magnesium Malate and Magnesium Taurate.

Joint and muscle health

Most oral forms of magnesium supports joint and muscle pain

What to look for in Magnesium Tablets

When you are looking for a supplement get a trusted brand and see if it is in a single form or blend of magnesium. What you need to know is that not all magnesium supports the body. Some of the chemical compositions differ. A blend can be a better option. You will see that the trusted brands have blends of magnesium as they understand the benefits of magnesium working together..

The good thing about magnesium supplements too is that they can be found in many oral forms like tablets, capsules, powders, and liquids. So, if you do have difficulty taking a tablet or need to use less because of the laxative side-effect then you can cut down tablets or only use a quarter of a teaspoon of powder and basically choose how you want to take your magnesium.

TIP 1 : to avoid the laxative effect is to spread magnesium throughout the day just like you would spread out eating your meals. This way you are getting a normal dose of magnesium at every meal.
TIP 2 – Dr. Sandra Cabot – Cabot Health

Please consult your health professional for support in the best magnesium for your wellness. I chose a brand put out by a doctor that is called magnesium complete. Dr. Sandra Cabot. – Cabot Health is the Brand.  It has 4 different magnesium – Magnesium Orotate Magnesium Gluconate, Magnesium Chelate and Magnesium Phosphate. She states they have left out Magnesium Oxide due to its low absorption rate as well as laxative effect.

General Use of Transdermal Magnesium

magnesim, topcial spray

It was mentioned earlier about magnesium supplements and that some types of magnesium were not bioavailable. Topical magnesium for transdermal use allows the magnesium to absorb via the skin. The types of magnesium that go through your skin easily are created into a brine and is called a magnesium oil. Magnesium oil can be being placed safely on your skin through rubs and lotions. This means that the body is not dependent on the digestive tract for absorption as the skin absorbs it passes it directly into the blood stream.

Transdermal Magnesium works the same as Patches.

Most of us know that drugs have been given through patches for years now. We see this in hormone therapy, pain therapy and even used in nicotine patches. The reason that patches are used for this type of administration of drugs and support was that they could get more of the drug into the system and use lower doses. The digestive tract didn’t need to make it bioavailable.This rectified their need to give huge doses of hormones pain relief and pain relief.

Transdermal application of magnesium as a supplement is another way that you can put magnesium into your body without having to take it orally. You can get more into the body without the side effects of being a laxative. You can also take it orally to saturate your body with magnesium.

Magnesium Oil is not an Oil it is a brine.

Magnesium oil as I have mentioned earlier is not in oil. It is magnesium chloride that is suspended in water and is highly concentrated. It can be called an oil or a brine.  It is very potent and should be used slowly and gently

What is the Best Magnesium for Topical Use?

Magnesium chloride is best used for external use. It can be placed in a foot bath or straight onto the skin or made into a rub or lotion. When magnesium oil is placed on the skin it can immediately be absorbed into the skin and into the bloodstream, then it is transported to your tissues, muscles, and bones.

How to use Transdermal Magnesium Oil.

magnesium oil rub

Apply directly to the area if support the relief of pain or injury or leg restlessness or tightness but you can just apply to arms legs abdomen and even your chest.  Allow the magnesium oil, rub or lotion to fully dry to maximize absorption. This will normally take 20 minutes. If it feels red and itchy during the 20 minutes you can rub coconut oil over the top. After 20 minutes you can wash it off or leave it on.  IF it feels comfortable then it is merely a choice

TIP 3 : Over time you will be able to use the oil directly as the more magnesium in your body the better you absorb it.

If you have any cuts or scratches, you will notice them when you apply it – grin and bear it if you can as it will support your body to heal faster.  After you have been applying magnesium for a while then take notice of any scarring as it may become less prominent, soft, and flexible.   I have been using magnesium as my deodorant for nearly 20 years and I have hardly any hair under my arms now. I never get any body odor either, when I use the best magnesium oil.

TIP 4 : if you don’t like it on your skin then you can have a foot bath or bath and absorb it that way through the skin.

The goal is to get magnesium into your body as quickly and easily as you can. Magnesium oil is the fastest way, yet and it benefits you the same topically as a spray or in a bath., 20 MINUTES IS ALL YOU NEED TO RECEIVE THE BENEFIT.

How to Use Magnesium Chloride in a Bath or Foot Bath.

Epsom Salts – Magnesium Sulfate also for Baths.

Epsom salt is magnesium sulphate. It is different to magnesium chloride and is more detoxing as well as relaxing.  Epsom salts is easy to get at a supermarket, drug store or chemist.   It is certainly a strong laxative if taken – have you have ever heard of the saying – a good dose of salts.  It is better in a bath. Do the same as magnesium chloride and soak for 20 minutes only. 2 tablespoons in a footbath and 1 cup in a bath.  

Epsom Salts, Magnesium Chloride and Bi-Carb Soda Bath.

You can add the two magnesium together too by putting 2 tablespoons of each, magnesium sulfate – Epsom salts and magnesium oil – chloride. It will only support and optimize your magnesium intake plus support a variety of benefits for your muscles, skin, and just as importantly relaxation and reduction of your stress levels. If you add the bicarb soda then you have an even more detoxing and neutralizing effect.

Side Effects of Magnesium Tablets or Transdermal Oil.

The good thing about magnesium is the side effects are few and they don’t last long. All magnesium is unable to be stored in the body, so once it is used up by the body it is gone. We need to have magnesium in our diet or on our skin or internally on daily basis to maintain good healthy levels of magnesium.

Side effects of Magnesium Tablets and Magnesium Oil

If you have any medical needs, then please don’t start any protocols without consulting your health practitioner.

The side effect of Magnesium tablets is loose bowel motions. Some guidance shares the saturation effect is to take magnesium tablets until you do get this laxative result. But this is a harsh way to dose yourself. Another way is to introduce it slowly below recommended amount and add slowly over a few days to a week. Spreading the dosage out throughout the day rather than increasing all at one time of the day. This will reduce the side effect of having a lot of magnesium at once and the resulting diarrhea effect. You can get more magnesium into your body this way too.

The side effect from Magnesium Oil is the irritation to the skin. Some people feels the brine directly on the skin has a burning effect. To avoid this use a rub or lotion. if however you are experiencing it then add a coconut oil over the top to take it inti the skin faster or wash it off.. it takes 20 minutes to get the full benefit of the magnesium oil into the blood. If it is still uncomfortable then begin with the foot baths or baths. After a couple of weeks of those then start in the skin again as a rub or lotion.

.Magnesium Tablets or Transdermal Oil or Both.

If you don’t want to use the oral form of magnesium, then try the transdermal in a foot bath.  When your magnesium levels begin to rise then you may choose to use both forms of magnesium, but whichever way you choose. just work up slowly to having larger doses.

Always consult your health professional when you have challenges and finally if you are wanting to gauge your levels and changes then checking with blood tests may help you with your progress.

It can take 12 months to get blood tests to Show Improvement in Magnesium Levels.

If you feel good that is a positive sign and this feel good response will happen before the blood tests show any improvement. WHY ? Because if you increase your magnesium then you will initially use it all to maximize the production of your cells of ATP for energy – then once you have greater energy, the magnesium levels should show an improvement. This can take 9 – 12 months. –  so be patient.
