The Problem With Magnesium

There are two main issues with magnesium however. Some of these are as follows and are worth considering before adding into your routine:

1. It is seriously deficient in foods, some 60% less than 50 years ago.
2. It is difficult to supplement with capsules, tablets or powder since it will not easily absorb easily and increasing the amount can cause digestive problems.
The solution is magnesium oil and especially with MSM (organic sulphur that absorbs almost immediately when massaged into the skin). Magnesium is more rapidly absorbed into the body when applied transdermally onto the skin so is worth applying topically for best effectiveness.
