This Little-Known Fact Can Save Your Muscles (and Your Health Too)

musclesYour muscles have experienced it all:

  • The charlie horse from hell.
  • The kink in your neck that makes you schlep around like Igor.
  • That “ah—oh” pain in your back when you bend over.
  • The vice that squeezes your head until it snaps into waves of pain.

Sometimes you wonder if you can take it any more.

Magic For Your Muscles

When your muscles rebel it can turn a beautiful day into a poopy one, and can send you scrambling for the Advil, a banana, or a massage to rub them out.

Yet there is one critical muscle nutrient that few think about: magnesium.

“Every known illness is associated with a magnesium deficiency and that, “magnesium is the most critical mineral required for electrical stability of every cell in the body. A magnesium deficiency may be responsible for more diseases than any other nutrient.” – Dr. Norman Shealy

You should be thinking about it. It is one of the most prevalent minerals in the body, responsible for over 325 biochemical reactions that are vital to nerve function, muscle contraction, bone structure, and much more. Consequently, your magnesium starved body struggles.

Since most magnesium is in the tissues, the first symptoms of your deficiency will be muscle twitches, cramps, and pain.

But Don’t Take My Word For It

Research has given us a plethora of studies confirming how deficient Americans are in magnesium and that it does indeed cause muscle tension and cramping. There are also a couple great case studies here and here.

A 1999-2000 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey confirmed that a majority of adults in the U.S. fail to get anywhere close to the amount of magnesium recommended.

“Magnesium deficiency can affect virtually every organ system of the body with regard to skeletal muscle, one may experience twitches, cramps, muscle tension, muscle soreness, including backaches, neck pain, tension headaches and jaw joint (or TMJ) dysfunction. Also, one may experience chest tightness or a peculiar sensation that he can’t take a deep breath. Sometimes a person may sigh a lot.” – Dr. Sidney Baker

The bottom line is that you need to supplement magnesium.

Two Complications

There are two things that complicate this issue:

  • Doctors don’t see the problem. Only 1% of the body’s magnesium is stored in the blood, but blood levels are priority because if they’re even a little low you will have a heart attack. This means that by the time a blood test shows a low level of magnesium your body will have ravaged every tissue in the body to make sure the blood stays good.
  • Magnesium is poorly absorbed in the gut. You will get nauseated before you come even close to getting enough.

Two Solutions

The skin absorbs magnesium wonderfully, so soak in a bath of magnesium chloride salts or, more frugally, rub the oil on your skin. This is an inexpensive treatment, and it will save you a lot of grief (and money) in the long run.

Can You Afford Not To When the Treatment Is So Simple?

Whether your muscles are killing you right now or life is good, don’t wait any longer!

Don’t play Russian Roulette with your health when the treatment is so simple. Order some magnesium oil or, better yet, make it yourself.

Do it today!

Your muscles will be the first to thank you.

    "I love Brent! I went in yesterday for my tune up and as usual I feel like a new person. I've had the pleasure of having Brent "fix" my chronic neck, arm and back issues from many years of doing hair and he is amazing!!!"

    "After two car accidents, just six months apart, and trying many other therapies, Brent was the one who helped me get on the road to healing. He is absolutely the best massage therapist I have ever been to! I highly recommend him."
