Transdermal Magnesium

Why magnesium is our most essential mineral

Our need for magnesium has never been so great. Modern diet and pressured lifestyles have resulted in a drastically poor magnesium intake, significantly lower than anything experienced before.

Intensive farming and processed foods have been a major factor in the last century and magnesium now represents the largest decline of all nutrients in the UK Government’s National Diet and Nutrition Survey.

Signs of magnesium deficiency

Magnesium deficiency can manifest itself in many different symptoms that are not exclusively linked to low levels of magnesium.

This makes it difficult to diagnose and often sees deficiency go unnoticed and untreated.

Symptoms can include, but are not limited to poor sleep, poor concentration, headaches, migraines, low energy, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and stress and anxiety to name a few.

If you experience any of these symptoms, this could indicate that you may need to boost your magnesium intake.


A magnesium-rich body will be stronger, more flexible and better able to resist both physical and emotional stress. Its presence ensures our cells can repair and detox so a sufficient amount is fundamental for a healthy functioning body.

Sleep Support

It is common knowledge that poor sleep can have a dramatic effect on our health and wellbeing. What is less known is that even just a small drop in magnesium levels can affect a person’s quality of sleep.
