MAGNESIUM TO TREAT DEPRESSION...
Research suggests that depression and magnesium deficiency are linked. Magnesium deficiency can cause agitation and severe anxiety coupled with feelings of depression.
Symptoms of a magnesium deficiency include anxiety, insomnia, irritability, confusion, abnormal heart rhythms, hyperventilation, agitation, nausea, fatigue, muscle spasms, low blood pressure, vomiting, and seizures.
Your magnesium levels may be depleted by too much coffee, soda, salt, alcohol, or diuretics. It can also be lowered by excessive sweating, heavy menstrual periods, and long-term stress.
How To Get Enough Magnesium
Unfortunately, magnesium is often not well absorbed by the digestive track, and is even more difficult to absorb if you are deficient or are low in vitamin D, have poor gut bacteria or suffer from a number of other conditions. On top of that, most foods are depleted of their natural magnesium levels and the water supply is lacking also. For this reason, we use topical magnesium supplementation for our family.
The best way to supplement with magnesium, is by using it on the skin, where it is absorbed more directly to the cells. This is not only the safest way, since the body will only use what is needed, but the most effective.
Unlike internal doses of magnesium, topical magnesium does not have to pass through the digestive system and kidneys and can more quickly enter the blood and tissues of the body.

"I'm am so pleased I found out about this product! I have recently broken my leg and ankle. I had to have surgery to reconstruct my ankle. I'm now 8 weeks post surgery and been out of a cast into a moon boot for the past 2 weeks. I have used this product to help in so many ways! Not only does it help to soothe my aching, swollen and sore ankle and foot, it is helping me to get sleep in an otherwise painful time and is a natural way to also moisturise over my scar and dry skin. Love it!! Been using at least twice a day and seeing the benefits straight away! Thanks so much! " Suzannah Humphreys

"I discovered your product at the Keri Farmers Market in September. Have only just started using it to help me sleep & still my mind by rubbing it into the soles of my feet. I am absolutely thrilled with the result, so recently told 2 of my friends about it. They both purchased it recently on my recommendation and am sure they too, will find it just as effective. I intend to let others who have sleep deficit know about it also. Much better than taking sleeping pills which I abhor. So please keep producing it!" Trish Peters
