Magnesium is one of the most important unused mineral our body needs, in my opinion.

And your colonic will prove to the results. Now I am not a doctor and I cannot prescribe, treat, or recommend anything so please consult your doctor. This is just information for you to digest.

Why would we need magnesium and how come it’s not in the foods we eat?

Our soil long ago was incredibly enriched with magnesium, over the course of time with the use of pesticides, genetically modified organisms, round up, chem trails etc the soil our produce grows in lacks important minerals and vitamins.
Yes, You could eat ‘magnesium rich’ foods but it won’t be enough for what your body actually needs.

By some estimates, more than 70% of adults are deficient in this essential mineral that is responsible for more than 600 vital metabolic reactions throughout the human body. Every cell in your body contains it and needs it.

It’s truly amazing what can happen when your body is properly fueled with magnesium.

Magnesium plays a crucial role in just about every aspect of your well-being! From a healthy cardiovascular system, strong bones and optimal brain function, to maintaining normal blood pressure and calcium levels, to the ability to focus and stay calm under stress. Without magnesium, your cells can’t make energy, your nerves and muscles (including your heart) won’t work properly, and your blood vessels and arteries will harden over time.


Scientific studies show that optimal levels of magnesium can:

*Boost your heart health and free you form cardiovascular issues.

I get asked a lot, what type of magnesium should I buy?

Well that question is a little hard to answer as every body is different and unique in its own. Some bodies can’t absorb magnesium in supplemental form based on their digestive and absorption abilities. But luckily there are many forms of magnesium that you can apply topically.

So, what are the different forms of magnesium?

Magnesium oxide is a salt that combines magnesium and oxygen and is one of the most widely used forms of magnesium because it is inexpensive and delivers high potency. But its poor absorptive qualities can cause gastrointestinal upset because it draws high levels of water into the colon.

Magnesium citrate a form of magnesium that’s bound with citric acid, often used for its laxative effect to loosen stools and cleanse the colon. 

Magnesium Carbonate is nearly insoluble and is often used in over-the-counter antacids.

Magnesium glycinate is the form of magnesium that binds to glycine, a non-essential amino acid that transmits chemical signals to the brain. It is easily absorbed and may have calming properties. It may help reduce mental health issues.

Magnesium malate includes malic acid, which occurs naturally in foods like fruit, This acid has a sour taste and is often added to food to add flavor or acidity. occasionally recommended to help with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome symptoms.

Magnesium chloride is a magnesium salt that includes chlorine — an unstable element that binds well with other elements, including sodium and magnesium, to form salts. It’s well absorbed in your digestive tract, making it a great multi-purpose supplement. You can use it to treat low magnesium levels. Applying it topically may help relieve muscle soreness.

Magnesium lactate is the salt formed when magnesium binds with lactic acid. This acid is produced by your muscle and blood cells. It’s effective as a dietary supplement and possibly gentler on your digestive system. It may be more suitable for those who don’t tolerate other forms or need to take especially large doses.

Magnesium taurate contains the amino acid taurine. Research suggests that adequate intakes of taurine and magnesium play a role in regulating blood sugar. This form may promote healthy blood sugar levels.

Magnesium L-threonate is the salt formed from mixing magnesium and threonic acid, a water-soluble substance derived from the metabolic breakdown of vitamin C. It is often used for its potential brain benefits and may help manage certain brain disorders, such as depression, Alzheimer’s disease, and age-related memory loss.

Magnesium sulfate is formed by combining magnesium, sulfur, and oxygen. It’s commonly known as epson salt. You can dissolve magnesium sulfate in bathwater to help soothe sore, achy muscles and relieve stress. It’s also sometimes included in skin care products like lotion or body oil.
