Transdermal Magnesium Technology

Transdermal Magnesium Technology

A commonly overlooked yet vital nutrient, magnesium is crucial for healthy bones as it makes up part of the skeleton’s framework. It’s presence in every cell of our body is essential, as its responsible for over 300 different actions in the body.

Our need for magnesium has never been so great, as a magnesium-rich body will be stronger, more flexible and better able to resist both physical and emotional stress.

Modern diet and pressured lifestyles have resulted in a drastically poor magnesium intake, significantly lower than anything experienced before.

Magnesium is an important nutrient that works to support

  • Relaxation and sleep
  • Relief from muscle tension
  • Reduction in tiredness and fatigue
  • Exercise and sports performance

Supplementing this vital mineral ensures you maintain a healthy, balanced body–however, traditional supplementation can prove inconsistent in delivering active levels of magnesium into the body.

Our need for magnesium has never been so great...

80% of older people (65+) are deficient in magnesium.
53% of our teenage girls have daily levels that indicate gross deficiency.
The level of magnesium within our diet has declined by 21% since 1940
70% of all UK adults may be magnesium deficient and the majority of children fail to get the basic RNI
