Magnesium may be the most important element for life on earth. Without magnesium there would be no plant life, because photosynthesis requires it. Magnesium is at the center of the chlorophyll molecule, which happens to be identical to hemoglobin, with the exception, that hemoglobin has iron at its center. It has been speculated that chlorophyll becomes hemoglobin when ingested into the body with the exchange of magnesium for iron at the center.

Magnesium is responsible for over 300 enzyme ion actions in the body. Without it our hearts could not beat. It is one of the most integral components of bones tissues and cells. It is necessary for the manufacturing of insulin and insulin helps get magnesium into our cells. Magnesium helps our cells to be more sensitive to insulin, which in turn lowers insulin resistance. This symbiotic relationship shows us a direct connection between diabetes and magnesium deficiency.

Magnesium is needed in synthesizing cholesterol, which is part of many other hormones. Cell division requires magnesium as well. The removal of toxins and acid residues from cells depends on magnesium, which keeps us from rapidly aging.

Dr. Mark A. Sircus Ac., OMD states that for cardiac arrest stroke or panic attack magnesium chloride should be the very first thing administered. On the website, he also states that, transdermally applied, it has health benefits unequalled in the entire world of medicine, and for people who are deficient it’s benefits are nothing short of a miracle.

Magnesium defends cells against mercury as well as cadmium, aluminum, beryllium and lead. In medical science it has shown to be helpful in almost all disorders including cancer. One study showed higher magnesium intake associated with a lower risk of colon cancer. It has also been found at a specialized cancer center that 46% of the patients admitted had abnormally low levels of serum magnesium. You can read in depth about these subjects in Dr. Mark A Sircus’s article, Magnesium and Cancer.

Some of the benefits of using magnesium chloride internally or through the skin are the strengthening of teeth, gums, bones and all of your tissues, helping you to relax, better bone mineralization and improved muscle contraction and relaxation. It is necessary for the utilization of calcium and increases the bioavailability of other nutrients from foods. Magnesium forms hard tooth enamel with more resistance to decay. The average person has 1% magnesium phosphate in their teeth. Elephant’s tusks have about 2%, which billiard balls are made from, and carnivorous animals teeth are made up of about 5%, accounting for their ability to crush bones with them. In a very pure form magnesium chloride can be used as a mouth rinse and then swallowed.

Sings of Magnesium deficiency include but are not limited to Diabetes, Hypoglycemia, nervousness, hyperactivity, muscle weakness, muscle cramps and spasms, back pain, migraines, kidney stones, and Attention Deficit Disorder.

Some foods you can get more magnesium from are kelp, raw almonds, whole grain cereals, sesame seeds, chlorella, green peas, broccoli, pumpkin seeds, brazil nuts, quinoa, spinach, cashews, soy beans, pine nuts, white beans, black beans, beet greens, avocados, bananas, black berries, kiwis and watermelon. Organic Cacao Powder is also very high in Magnesium, but it's also very addicting so consume it at your own risk. There are other sources as well.

Magnesium chloride is the very best form of magnesium to take as a supplement. Just Organics has one of the best forms for internal use in its purest form. The one we carry is manufactured by Eidon Ionic Minerals and will be made available at a discount through Just Organics. For transdermal use we are going to be carrying another product that you can apply directly to your skin or use in a bath. I haven’t tried this yet, however I’ve heard it can eliminate stress and make aches and pains go away. Sounds good to me.

You should not use magnesium supplements if your heart rate is extremely low or if you have kidney failure.
