Entering stage right… We have Magnesium!!!! Ta-daaaa!!!
Magnesium is one of the most important minerals in the body. It's directly involved in over 300 metabolic processes in the body and is needed by every cell in the body. Magnesium is essential for the health of our bones, muscles, joints, and teeth. The highest amount of magnesium is found in the heart, because its essential for heart-health.

That’s a long list!! before we go on any further, I don’t want to say that magnesium will cure you of all of your ailments. Many ailments are a puzzle of things. Taking magnesium can be an easy hack that can pay dividends.
You may be lacking in this essential mineral for several reasons:
Modern farming methods have depleted magnesium from the soil.
Our drinking water has had the minerals filtered out of it.
Processed foods are lacking in magnesium.
Calcium supplementation depletes magnesium from the body, because the body requires magnesium to process calcium.
Nearly every prescription drug causes magnesium deficiency.
High consumption of caffeine, alcohol and sugar deplete magnesium.
Stress and lack of sleep lower our magnesium levels.
Food is a great way to get in magnesium, but food these days contain inadequate amounts of magnesium. At the turn of the 20th Century, the average American consumed about 500 mg of magnesium in their food and water. Today, we’re lucky if we get 200 mg from those sources! This is why you may have a need to supplement with this crucial mineral.
Trying to supplement magnesium with pills and powders can be a challenge. Only 4 to 20% of the precious mineral will be absorbed, due to its passage through the digestive system before reaching the bloodstream.

Supplementing with magnesium has been shown to improve sleep, eliminate muscle cramps and twitches, relieve stress, stabilize heart rate and arrhythmia, lower cholesterol, lower blood sugar, improve mood and help with many more ailments.
Absorption is affected by the concentration of the magnesium oil, the surface area of the body on which it is applied, and the length of time it’s allowed to absorb.
Magnesium supplements and magnesium oil are readily available from several reputable sources.
