Magnesium for Pain

Did you ever wake up in the middle of the night, because of a painful leg cramp?  Have you experienced any of these:

  • Muscle pain and weakness, especially in your legs or feet
  • Muscle cramps and spasms
  • Muscle tightness or aches
  • Restless legs syndrome
  • Post workout soreness
  • Back and neck pain
  • Tingling, numbness, or pins and needles in the hands or feet

You’re not alone.  These are common signs of a Magnesium deficiency, and we have solutions.

Magnesium has been found to have a beneficial effect in reducing pain, including both acute and chronic pain.

Topical Magnesium for Muscle Pain

We need Magnesium because it helps us to stay flexible. It keeps our muscles relaxed instead of seizing up. If our Magnesium levels are low, there can be a buildup of lactic acid, which results in muscle pain and tightness.

When you rub our Magnesium cream into your muscles, it eliminates muscle cramps, which also promotes a more restful sleep. No more waking up at 3 am with a painful charlie horse. And because the Magnesium goes directly into the bloodstream, there’s no concern of GI upsets. This is especially important for those who have IBS/leaky gut, or who suffer from a malabsorption of nutrients.

Why is topical Magnesium better than oral supplements?

Topical Magnesium cream or lotion for pain can be more effective and more gentle than using oral Magnesium supplements.  Because they doesn’t pass through the digestive tract, there’s no concern about GI upset.  And because we’re not getting our daily Magnesium requirements from food due to soil depletions, we can supplement with high quality, absorbable products. Transdermal therapy has been proven to work for muscle pain.

Mineral and Co’s organic & natural creams and lotions offer:

  • No GI upsets
  • Safe & gentle
  • Quick absorption
  • No-rinse off
  • High concentration of Magnesium

One of the implications of low levels of magnesium is muscle fatigue, muscle pain, spasms, cramps, and tension headaches.

Magnesium Muscle Rub

A simple and quick fix is to rub Magnesium cream into the painful muscle(s) to help them relax. Apply ½-1 teaspoon into the painful or sensitive muscles to help with the following:

  • Muscle Cramps
  • Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Headaches
  • Neuropathy in hands and feet
  • Fibromyalgia

Use more as needed, to prevent or treat painful areas.

Mineral & Co’s topical Magnesium in the form of creams, butter and lotion have proven to be effective for pain relief.
