Hormones, sleep disorders, PCOS, constipation....
Magnesium and hormones
Women are often surprised when magnesium supplementation magically seems to dissolve an ongoing sleep disorder, PMS, or constipation.
Once you learn the science, the powers of magnesium are not that surprising.
Magnesium is a foundational micronutrient for the hormone pathways, neurotransmitter regulation and detoxification.
Women with endometriosis are often lacking in magnesium due to estrogen dominance in their bodies. During menstruation, women's magnesium levels can be reduced by up to 50 percent, further depleting their supply.
Magnesium also reduces pain associated with cramping so adding more of this can definitely bring some relief. Most endometriosis patients have found heat to bring them some relief. Concentrated heat to the area specifically relaxes muscles, including cramps, and helps relieve tension in an area that is rigid with pain. Heat also helps to calm aggravated nerve endings. This is what led us to initially create our Topical Herbal Magnesium Therapy wrap.
So How does Magnesium Sulfate Work?
It contains magnesium, a mineral that is crucial to the human body's functioning. Some of the key roles of magnesium include keeping blood pressure normal, heart rhythm steady and bones strong. The other other component sulfate, is an essential mineral key to many biological processes. It helps flush toxins, cleanse the liver, and assist in the formation of proteins in joints and brain tissue.
It has been found that magnesium, despite being available in many dietary sources, is not best absorbed orally. Magnesium taken orally is affected by a number of elements in your gut and can also act as a laxative.
When acting as a laxative, it reduces the amount of time the mineral can be absorbed in the body. Injections of magnesium are commonly used for heart attacks and strokes, but the best way to regularly increase levels is using magnesium in a transdermal fashion. Some health experts have begun calling topical magnesium application, transdermal magnesium therapy.
In one magnesium study, patients using transdermal magnesium therapy saw increases in their cellular magnesium levels after 12 weeks of using magnesium spray and soaks. The average increase over 12 weeks was 25.2 percent, which is pretty impressive.
Our discovery of the importance of magnesium happened almost by chance. When we designed the Topical Magnesium Wrap, we had originally designed it with the primary purpose of simply making women feel better when they used it (hence the Epsom salts). We were continuously taken by surprise as the number of women using it increased drastically and the feedback became more about life changing health as opposed to just having happier muscles and a flat belly. We hope you got something out of this read - if you do not want to buy from us, go find an integrative doctor or a magnesium specialist who can help you pick something out to accommodate your health in the best possible way.
We are here to help, to be a resource for guiding women everywhere in the right direction for a happier, healthier body and minds.
Thank you ladies!
