What is Magnesium?

Magnesium is a nutrient that the body needs to stay healthy. Magnesium is important for many processes in the body, including protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation (Office of Dietary Supplements – Magnesium, 2022). It also contributes to normal energy metabolism, healthy psychological function as well as reducing tiredness and fatigue.


Magnesium is found naturally in foods such as whole grains and dark, green leafy vegetables (such as spinach), as well as low-fat milk and yoghurt. The body stores most of its magnesium in the bones (50-60%) and then the majority of the rest is stored in the soft tissues, with less than 1% of total magnesium found in the blood.

What are the benefits of Magnesium?

When it is applied topically, magnesium is absorbed quickly via the skin directly to the tissues, and the extracellular fluid and bloodstream where it is then transported throughout the body.


Some of the benefits include:

  • Works quickly to reduce areas of pain or tension – relieves muscle aches, pains, cramps
  • By avoiding the gastrointestinal tract there are no issues with absorption or digestion
  • Cheap and convenient
  • By keeping you relaxed it can help to promote a good night’s sleep and ease stress.
