Our magnesium products are an excellent way of absorbing more magnesium into your body . . . safely with no side effects. They are also excellent for relieving sore, aching muscles, joints and stress.
Scientists have long known that magnesium is a critical player in cell metabolism, helping to transport other minerals across cell membranes and affecting cell mechanisms that control the activity of muscle and nerve cells. But as the scientists note, their research suggests that the cardiac muscle seems to be more sensitive to magnesium intake than skeletal muscle.
Magnesium, a mineral that is naturally present in water and foods in varying amounts.
Research indicates that most people are lacking in magnesium and that many health issues may be related to magnesium deficiency.

Put 1/4 cup or more of Magnesium Bath Flakes into a hot bath and soak for at least 20 minutes to relieve aches, pains & stress. We recommend soaking in your magnesium bath on a regular basis for best supplementation.
The Dance of Calcium and Magnesium:
Calcium and magnesium share equal importance in our bodies. Newton's law says that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, and calcium and magnesium dance within this law. Neither can act without eliciting reaction from the other.
At the biochemical level, magnesium and calcium are known to act antagonistically toward each other. Many enzymes whose activities critically depend on a sufficient amount of intracellular magnesium will be detrimentally affected by small increases in levels of cellular calcium. Growth of cells, cell division, and intermediary metabolism are also absolutely dependent on the availability of magnesium, which can be compromised if excess calcium is present.
To understand how you can create a calcium/magnesium imbalance in your own body, try this experiment in your kitchen. Crush a calcium pill and see how much dissolves in 1 oz. of water. Then crush a magnesium pill and slowly stir it into the calcium water. When you introduce the magnesium, the remaining calcium dissolves; it becomes more water-soluble. The same thing happens in your bloodstream, heart, brain, kidneys, and all the tissues in your body.
If you don't have enough magnesium to help keep calcium dissolved, you may end up with calcium-excess muscle spasms, fibromyalgia, hardening of the arteries, and even dental cavities. Another scenario plays out in the kidneys. If there is too much calcium in the kidneys and not enough magnesium to dissolve it, you can get kidney stones.
All muscles, including the heart and blood vessels, contain more magnesium than calcium. If magnesium is deficient, calcium floods the smooth muscle cells of the blood vessels and therefore higher blood pressure, arterial spasm, angina and heart attack. A proper balance of magnesium in relation to calcium can prevent these symptoms. Calcium excess, stimulating the cells in the muscular layer of the temporal arteries over the temples, can cause migraine headaches.
Excess calcium can constrict the smooth muscle surrounding the small airways of the lung, causing restricted breathing and asthma. Finally, too much calcium, without the protective effect of magnesium, can irritate delicate nerve cells of the brain. Cells that are irritated by calcium fire electrical impulses repeatedly, depleting their energy stores and causing cell death.
