But now, unless you have some form of magnesium supplementation even on a pure organic diet, you're getting only about 150 mg at best. If you're eating a standard Westernized diet, you may be lucky to only get 50 mg per day of magnesium. And athletes and exercise enthusiasts may need between 600 and more than 900 mg per day.
Over 75% of people are magnesium deficient, but oral magnesium from magnesium pills, capsules and tablets can present difficulties with absorption, and magnesium supplements can even upset many people's guts. Because all magnesium taken orally is potentially laxative, the ability to absorb magnesium through the GI tract is limited by shortened transit time and the very speedy time that it takes for magnesium to pass through your gut.
However, Ancient Minerals Topical Magnesium Lotion overcomes these issues. And offers an enormous range of joint and muscle healing properties for athletes and the general population.
Ancient Minerals Topical Magnesium Lotion is a smooth, quickly absorbed emulsion of magnesium chloride in a skin-nourishing base of certified organic oils. It is fragrance free and does not contain any formaldehyde releasing preservatives. Just apply it to the skin like you would suntan lotion, and it goes right through your skin and is absorbed by your magnesium-needy muscles! This delivers magnesium directly to your cells, while encouraging healthy skin tissue, enhancing muscle recovery and performance, and protecting the most sensitive of skin.
