Magnesium Oil from Eden Nuganics is made from the purest magnesium crystals available. The magnesium is mined from the ancient Zechstein Seabeds found beneath Northern Europe. These salt beds were laid down millions of years ago when there were none of the modern day pollutants present in our own seas and oceans.
Magnesium is one of the vital elements that the body needs in the correct amounts for optimal health
Magnesium is involved in many of the bodies essential systems including protein synthesis, the control of blood glucose levels, the regulation of blood pressure and muscle and nerve function.
It accomplishes this by regulating the flow of calcium and potassium ions across cell walls, the very heart of inter cellular communication. If this flow is disrupted the involuntary nervous system, including the heart can begin to fail.
Magnesium also plays an important role in the proper development of bone, energy production and the formation of DNA and RNA.
This is why it is essential that pregnant and lactating women make sure they are maintaining the correct intake of magnesium.
As with most nutrients we should get enough magnesium from our diet. However this is much more difficult with modern agricultural, food processing and even home cooking techniques. Surveys consistently demonstrate that we are not taking in enough magnesium in our diet. This can have dire consequences for our health.
Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include fatigue, loss of appetite and nausea. If left uncorrected a deficiency in magnesium can lead to muscle spasms and contractions. This affects our biggest muscle, the heart, and can lead to abnormal heart rhythm and potentially carciovascular disease. Most of these problems are caused by hypocalcemia and hypokalemia, calcium and potassium deficiency within cells.
This inability for the cells to communicate properly can also lead to chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, hypertension and migraines.
With it becoming difficult to maintain recommended daily intakes of magnesium through food magnesium supplementation can play in important role in maintaining good health.
There are many oral magnesium supplements on the market, but the best way for the body to take on board magnesium in a way it can be used is through the skin, or transdermally.
A 2010 study into the efficacy of the transdermal application of magnesium chloride found that after 12 weeks 89% of those taking part had increased cellular magnesium levels. This was confirmed by regular testing, that also discovered a 78% detoxification in heavy metals and a 25.2% increase in the calcium - magnesium balance. It took those on the study taking oral magnesium supplements 9-24 weeks to achieve the same results.

A number of medicines can potentially interact with magnesium supplements causing undesired effects. If you are taking any of the following medications, or suffer from any of the conditions mentioned please consult your doctor before taking a magnesium supplement.
Oral bisphosphonates, used to treat osteoporosis, can be blocked by magnesium supplements.
Some common antibiotics like doxcycycline and demeclocycline as well as quinolone antibiotics like levofloxacin and ciprofloxacin form insoluble complexes if mixed with magnesium.
Magnesium excretion in the urine is affected by diuretics, and in particular potassium-sparing diuretics can block excretion through the urine.
