Magnesium Creams

Magnesium is an essential mineral for life, the 4th most abundant mineral in the body.  Over 300 enzymes require magnesium to preform their catalytic actions in your body.Yet only half of US adults consume the Recommended Dietary Allowance of magnesium.  And even if you are consuming the right foods in which should contain magnesium, the soil they were grown in may not be suffice.  Additionally a Dr. Shealy, has warned that the soil in every country in the world except Egypt has been farmed to the point of magnesium depletion; mainly due to inadequate crop rotation and use of pesticides.  Those who consume a lot of dairy may actually require more than the recommended magnesium intake in order to balance their magnesium/calcium ratio because magnesium and calcium work synergistically in the body.  Thus both is needed for optimal health.    It is known that transdermal applications of magnesium boosts bodily levels of the mineral much quicker than supplements or epsom salt baths.  Healthline lists...

Magnesium Lotion (magnesium chloride) works fast and lasts longer than an Epsom salt bath (magnesium sulfate).  We offer pleasant scents, some ideally for before bed and others to aid you throughout the day.  They all smell great tho.  2-3 teaspoons per adult and 1/2 a teaspoon per child is recommended.  Some find magnesium to aid with sleep while others find it to be rejuvenating but all agree it has a calming/balancing quality about it.  

Magnesium has been reported for treating attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, cystic fibrosis, alcoholism, mania, recovery after surgery, leg cramps at night and during pregnancy, diabetes, kidney stones, migraine headaches, a long-term pain condition called complex regional pain syndrome, weak bones (osteoporosis), premenstrual syndrome (PMS), altitude sickness, urinary incontinence, a condition that causes burning pain and redness called erythromelalgia, restless leg syndrome, asthma, hayfever, multiple sclerosis, and for preventing hearing loss and cancer.  

Magnesium is all but completely safe for most people BUT be cautious if you are taking any of the prescriptions below. 

Magnesium MAY interfere with Antibiotics (Aminoglycoside,Quinolone,& Tetracycline) making them less absorable. Magnesium can also decrease how much bisphospate the body absorbs there for taking magnesium along side bisphosphates can decrease its effectiveness. This inlcudes alendronate (Fosamax), etidronate (Didronel), risedronate (Actonel), & tiludronate (Skelid). Additionally medication for high blood pressure (calcium channel blockers) MAY interact with magnesium making your blood pressure too low. Some blood pressure medications include, nifedipine (Adalat, Procardia), verapamil (Calan, Isoptin, Verelan), diltiazem (Cardizem), isradipine (DynaCirc), felodipine (Plendil), & amlodipine (Norvasc).

Since Magnesium seems to relax muscles, you should not take both magnesium and muscle relaxers such as carisoprodol (Soma), pipecuronium (Arduan), orphenadrine (Banflex, Disipal), cyclobenzaprine, gallamine (Flaxedil), atracurium (Tracrium), pancuronium (Pavulon), & succinylcholine (Anectine).

There is also no need to take water pills (potassium diuretics) while supplementing magnesium this MAY cause too much magnesium in the body.
