Amazing Magnesium

Until a few weeks ago, I had no idea what magnesium was (besides a mineral) and didn’t think I had any use for an element my high school science teacher gave no heed to when learning about the periodic table.

Boy was I wrong. This little powerhouse deposit has a role in over 1200 bodily functions and I can honestly say from experience has made such a difference from even just one use.

I’ve had shoulder pains ever since my last job which was over six years ago now. I tried physiotherapy, those super expensive massage places in the mall that charge something like a million dollars a second, acupuncture and yoga. I’ve was very close to keyhole surgery but a package of magnesium products from Amazing Oils showed up in the mail just in time for me to reconsider it. After an extra long day at the desk, I remembered the magnesium spray sitting on the coffee table and decided to try it out on just my shoulder.

The pain went away in 30 seconds.

This isn’t an exaggeration. I couldn’t believe it. So I tested it out on both my dad and mum who couldn’t believe it either. And just to be sure it wasn’t a placebo effect, I tried it out on my parter too. Without him knowing. I just hope he doesn’t secretly read this blog.

But there are a range of different ways to use it so I had a little chat to Shalm Harold, brand manager of Amazing Oils, to find out what’s so special about magnesium and how we can get the most out of it.

Read on to find out what role magnesium plays in our bodies and how you can maximise its benefits.

Most people don’t seem to know much about the extensive benefits of magnesium or how important it is for our health. Can you tell us what sparked your interest in the mineral?

 Before Amazing Oils we were a family of Yoga Teachers. We knew about the benefits of magnesium and had been taking the powder form daily. It wasn’t until my grandfather was diagnosed with a serious illness that we discovered our first magnesium oil.

Your magnesium is all sourced from Australia which is amazing. Are there any other specific reasons besides “keeping it local” that you decided to use Australian magnesium?

Australian magnesium is sourced from salt lakes – which are in the middle of the desert. There’s no pollution, no run-off and the entire area is a protected environmental area. The resulting magnesium is a lot finer than other magnesium oils, its less sticky and stings less (for those that are deficient) than the magnesium we tested from Europe and Asia. That and of course it’s completely natural, underneath the salt lakes is a magnesium liquid brine that goes into the Natural Relief bottles. A lot of companies are importing flakes and mixing them with water to try and recreate this natural product, though the gritty result is usually easy to spot.

Can you tell us a bit about magnesium and its functions and benefits within the body?

This is probably one of the hardest questions given that magnesium is used in over 1000 bodily functions. I think that its easiest to understand magnesium’s function as the opposite of calcium. While calcium is used for contraction in the body, magnesium is responsible for the elasticising and releasing of that contraction. So each heartbeat uses calcium to contract and magnesium to open, every muscle extension uses calcium and magnesium, and so on. When the body is low on magnesium, it gives signals such as muscle contractions that don’t release (cramps). Using a magnesium supplement certainly combats these deficiency symptoms but it’s also the unseen things that magnesium is really useful for.

How has magnesium and more specifically, the business, changed the lives of yourself and family members?

Working with family can simultaneously be the most difficult and most rewarding experience. We are each well aware of how fortunate we are that our work contributes so much to the easing of so many people’s suffering.

Magnesium is actually not an oil but magnesium chloride mixed with water. Despite being easy to come by in a complete whole foods diet, a lot of us are magnesium deficient which can lead to cramps, migraines, fatigue, brain fog, mental illnesses amongst other problems.

Here’s a few quick benefits you can reap from this amazing mineral to help aquatint you with the earth’s eighth most abundant element.

– It can help prevent diabetes, osteoporosis and control blood pressure.

– It’s amazing at relieving body pains and headaches. Definitely get your partner to massage some into your back for almost instant relief after a hard day’s work!

– You can use it to reduce inflammations such as arthritis.

– Used topically, it can help keep your skin clear from acne. Make sure you’re using a product specifically designed for the face though.

– If you can’t sleep, rub some magnesium into the lower half of your body, the tops of your feet or legs. Trust me on this one!

– Because it helps improve insulin resistance and can lower stress levels, it can aid in weight-loss.

If your interest about this multitasking miracle mineral is piqued, and you’re looking into getting some to experience the benefits for yourself, I recommend Amazing Oils as they have the purest magnesium products and are very high quality. As always, read the label and consult a physician.
