Yes. Magnesium is very important during this time for both mother and baby as babies are born with twice as much magnesium as calcium, this is what makes them so flexible and why their skin is so elastic and soft.
However it is important that during pregnancy you avoid essential oils. MagnesiumOil Joint Spray, MagnesiumOil Recovery Spray and MagnesiumOil Goodnight Spray all contain essential oils.
Our pure magnesium products are perfectly suited for during pregnancy. MagnesiumOil Original spray, MagnesiumOil Sensitive spray, Magnesium Flakes, Magnesium Soak, Magnesium Body Butter and Lotion all contain only a pure form of magnesium chloride, which is currently the subject of clinical trial at St Mark’s hospital, Harrow, on behalf of the NHS.
There are no restrictions with dosage level of these products during this time.
There are no contraindications with any of our transdermal magnesium products.
The magnesium chloride is a solution mined in Veendam in the Netherlands. The magnesium chloride is mined from an ancient seabed that has been condensed and purified for over 250 million years. To mine the magnesium chloride spring water is carefully pumped down to dissolve the seam and the solution is simultaneously brought up to the surface. The magnesium chloride concentration is 31%, perfectly stable to avoid recrystalising. The brine solution that is brought to the surface is what is bottled for MagnesiumOil Original spray and Magnesium Soak, nothing is added to it to keep the spray as pure and as universally acceptable as possible.
You do not need to worry about overdosing when using transdermal magnesium. Upper limits are set when using the product orally as it can have a laxative effect as it is a natural relaxant.
Magnesium needs to be in balance with the calcium in your body, ideally in the range of 1:1 or 2:1. A modern Western diet unfortunately favours calcium in the ratio of more than 20 times to one on average, so magnesium supplementation is crucial. Looking at this from a cellular level, cells are surrounded by calcium, for the cell to fire it is flooded with calcium. To return to its relaxed state there must be sufficient magnesium within the cell to assist the process of pumping the calcium out. If the cell is deficient in magnesium it cannot keep all the calcium out and so the cell will continue to fire. Due to our reduced intake of magnesium through diet and our increase in calcium it would be extremely difficult to take too high a dose of magnesium through supplementation.
Another factor is that toxic symptoms from increased magnesium intake are not common because the body eliminates excess amounts unless there are serious problems with kidney function. As Mark Sircus has noted in his book Transdermal Magnesium Therapy, in reality problems only tend to occur when magnesium is given intravenously.
