Transdermal Magnesium Works
« on: November 05, 2017, 07:22:57 am »
Mike Mahler swears by magnesium oil - other big names too - and now there is a study supporting their position.  Check this out:

http://www.herts.ac.uk/about-us/news/2017/april/magnesium-cream-absorbed-through-skin-significantly-boosts-magnesium-levels-in-the-blood,-first-study-on-humans-finds

"Magnesium cream absorbed through skin significantly boosts magnesium levels in the blood, first study on humans finds"

"The first study into the effectiveness of magnesium creams on humans, published in the journal PLOS One, has found that topical application does boost magnesium levels in the blood.

The University of Hertfordshire research is a first step to showing that transdermal magnesium creams could be a viable addition or alternative to oral supplementation, to combat the range of health problems linked to low magnesium levels, including high blood pressure and poor immune function.
Only 86% of the population currently meet recommended magnesium levels in their diet and oral magnesium is commonly used to support a low magnesium diet. Supplementation is proven to improve various health factors, including blood pressure, immune function, cardiovascular system and metabolic syndrome.

An alternative - particularly for people who have difficulties in taking pills - could be topical application through magnesium oils and trans-dermal creams, from which magnesium is absorbed through the skin. However up to this point no study had been carried out on human subjects to look at the effectiveness of this.

....

Baseline urine and blood samples were taken and participants were randomly assigned into magnesium cream or placebo control cream groups, then instructed to apply 2 x 5ml spoonfuls of cream per day for two weeks. The resulting daily dose received in the magnesium cream group consisted of 56mg. After 12-14 days final urine and blood samples were collected and compared to the original findings.

Peak...  do you know anything behind the absorbency of oral magnesium and magnesium cream? Is one better than the other?  Iím currently using magnesium bisglycinate capsules  as I understand itís a highly absorbable form of magnesium. But just wondering if there be any benefit to switch into the cream.

I believe the above is the first time it's been studied for transdermals  If it was me, I would do my own test.  You know there are a couple of ways to test magnesium, right?

Plasma magnesium and RBC magnesium I believe are the names.

I've always been under the impression that magnesium citrate had the best oral absorption rate.  Has anyone tried these creams?

I am VERY sensative to magnesium.  My bowels start churning on as little as 25 mg.  I can tell you that transdermal mag oil affects me almost gram for gram equally as oral mag glycinate, which is also highly absorbed.  I suspect that you will find good results with either method.

That's wild, the topical form gives you bowel problems?  I am the same way with oral magnesium.  But the topical oil did not bother my digestion (it did make my skin super-itchy though).

Low T Symptoms: Chronic pelvic pain, and other neuropathic pain.  Mild anxiety, low energy and low motivation

yes.  I have tried injectable mag as well.  It too gives me bowel issues.

I remember reading an article by Life Extension Foundation and they recommended magnesium powder to restore proper peristaltic movement in the intestines for those who struggle with that. You had to take a lot though.  You should be getting a good amount of magnesium in your diet. So I take about a third of an RDA as an insurance oolicy.  Maybe you guys are taking too much?

I tried Magnegel from Designs for Health. I found it very irritating to the skin, couldn't really stand to have it on for more than a few minutes before I had to wash it off.
