Why is Magnesium Important in Our Bodies?

Magnesium is a necessary element for all living organisms both animal and plant and is known as the ‘Master Mineral’. In human biology, magnesium is the eleventh most abundant element by mass in the human body; its ions are essential to all living cells, where they play a major role in manipulating important biological polyphosphate compounds like ATP (Adenosine-5'-triphosphate), DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid), and RNA (Ribonucleic acid). Hundreds of enzymes thus require magnesium ions to function. (Source: Wikipedia)

A Secret Big Pharma Doesn't Want You to Know

If keeping excellent health or looking and feeling younger is important to you, then you are going to love today’s message.

For the past few months I have been studying the benefits of taking Magnesium and I have to say my eyes have been opened. It seems if you are not supplementing with Magnesium in the right way, on a daily basis, you are most likely to be deficient (especially if you live in Australia) and this can have huge ramifications on your health now and in the future. And guess what? The big Pharmaceutical  companies don’t want you to know this, as I read that if every adult in the world were to have the correct levels of Magnesium in their bodies, disease would be reduced significantly and I mean significantly like around 80%!! And you want to hear how it can help with some of our children’s problems nowadays like Autism and ADHD.  It’s no wonder they don’t want us to know... ‘Click Here’ to read more…


Magnesium Deficiency Triggers or Causes The Following Conditions: By Dr Carolyn Dean

The following 22 medical areas that magnesium deficiency triggers or causes have all been scientifically proven. However, since the publication of my book “The Miracle of Magnesium” people have sent me magnesium success stories that go beyond the following list. I’ve been told that magnesium has caused the skin to become smooth, gums to heal, and improvements in sexual response. In the next edition of my book I’ll present updated research on the ability of magnesium to lower cholesterol in the same way as statin drugs but without the side effects. There is also evidence that magnesium is important for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy. As I say in the book, if there you are able to only take one supplement—make sure it’s magnesium! ‘Click Here’ to read more…


How Much Magnesium Do I Need & How Do I Get Enough?

The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for magnesium is between 350 and 400 milligrams per day, which is just enough to ward off outright deficiency. But for optimal health and for the twenty-two conditions that are triggered by magnesium deficiency, Dr Carolyn Dean says perhaps twice as much magnesium is needed.
Please note: The only contraindications to magnesium are caused in people with outright kidney failure, bowel obstruction, Myasthenia gravis, or heart block. Also, if you have a heart condition you may find that taking magnesium can lessen the need for heart medication and you should be under doctor’s supervision to guide this process.

How do I get enough magnesium is a question that we are frequently asked. ‘Click Here’ to read more…


How Much Transdermal Magnesium Should Be Used?

There is really no limit to what you can apply to the skin because when the body has enough at that point it simply stops absorbing anymore. It is self-regulatory and will not overdose itself with magnesium.

Magnesium is like a body currency with a bank account. When we push and stress the body in any way we lose a lot more magnesium than via normal metabolism. Foods these days are severely depleted in magnesium - especially in Australia, as our soils are so low. That means it's common for our 'magnesium bank account' to go into deficit. Over time, if it's chronic, it can result in the development of degenerative disease such as diabetes, heart disease, immune system disorders - even cancer. The body simply can't function properly without enough magnesium and starts to decay and age early. ‘Click Here’ to read more…


How and When Should I Apply the Magnesium Salt Flakes / Magnesium Oil Spritz / Magnesium Cream?

Magnesium can be applied any time of the day, as needed. All the products can be combined and the more opportunity you give the body to take what it needs, the better. Soaking in hot water (foot soak or bathing) with dissolved magnesium flakes is excellent because it not only gives the body the opportunity to absorb magnesium, but it also takes the opportunity to release some toxins back into the water. Have a magnesium soak every night of the week or just 2-3 times a week – whatever people can do to fit with lifestyle. That's why it's a good idea also to apply the magnesium cream moisturiser every day. The Spritz can be applied directly to cramps or sore muscles and joints for relaxing the muscles and stimulating healthy blood flow. Magnesium acts as a natural anti-inflammatory. ‘Click Here’ to read more…


Why Can I Have Detox Symptoms if I Start Using Transdermal Magnesium?

One caution when people are starting with transdermal magnesium therapy: The increase in magnesium can trigger cells to detox, so people may feel some changes in the first few days and, depending on toxic levels, some detox symptoms. Encourage yourself to drink a lot of extra water (3 litres purified alkaline water per 24 hours) and do more
soaking or saunas to clear out the toxins faster transdermally. It is recommended to eat… ‘Click Here’ to read more…


What If I Have a Skin Disorder / Swelling / Fluid Retention Can I Use Transdermal Magnesium?

Many people are now suffering from toxic build up because we are exposed more than ever before to higher levels of chemicals, fluoride in the water and food supply, mercury, food additives, EMFs and many more stresses - the list goes on. When the liver becomes overloaded and can't process efficiently anymore, the body tries to use the skin as
the next organ of excretion and you will see symptoms of eczema, psoriasis or dermatitis - even acne... Others will also get fluid retention, swelling and excess fat build up. These symptoms are evidence that the body is under pressure to eliminate. ‘Click Here’ to read more…


What is the Difference Between the ‘Herbal’, ‘Zest-Citrus’, 'Island Spice' & 'Sensory GOLD' Magnesium Creams?

There is no difference between the four creams as far as delivery of the magnesium goes. They have the same amount (15% Mg flakes). The natural oils and butters act as a delivery vehicle into the epidermis from where the body draws magnesium as it needs. Our flakes are in the higher range for elemental magnesium (15.5%) and have the added synergy of the sea trace minerals.

The main difference with the Magnesium Cream ‘Zest Citrus’ is that… ‘Click Here’ to read more…


The Silent Guardian of Our Hearts & Arteries - Magnesium

Dr Carolyn Dean, M.D., N.D. says there are three things you need to know about Magnesium and Heart Disease.

  1. Magnesium prevents muscle spasms of the heart blood vessels, which can lead to heart attack.
  2. Magnesium prevents muscle spasms of the peripheral blood vessels, which can lead to high blood pressure.
  3. Magnesium prevents calcium build up in cholesterol plaque in arteries, which leads to clogged arteries. ‘Click Here’ to read more…

Low Magnesium and Heart Disease

Animal and clinical studies have shown that chronic Magnesium depletion has direct consequences for both the heart and the blood vessels. These include the following:

  • Arrhythmias (irregular heart rhythms) and tachycardia (too- rapid heartbeats) due to abnormal shifts of the mineral potassium into and out of heart cells.
  • Abnormal electrical activity in the heart, shown by electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) results. ... ‘Click Here’ to read more…

Why You Hydrate Your Body with Water

We often get asked about how to use ‘Magnesium Flakes’ to make mineral drinking water and what the benefits are. Below is a summary:

Most people are dehydrated these days and don't even realise that their tissue cells are low in water as their thirst mechanism is not working properly. This can happen as we get older and also because people are trying to satisfy thirst with other beverages. However beverages like juice, milk, tea, coffee, soft drinks etc are all liquid foods and require the body to put in energy and effort to digest them, thereby creating more toxic waste products that further dehydrate tissue cells and add to their acid load. The poor kidneys then have much more work to do when there is not enough water going through the system. Caffeine drinks and soft drinks are also diuretics and will cause more dehydration. It is a big mistake to count these liquid foods as a replacement for 'water'. Nothing else does what water does in the body. 'Click here' to read more...
