MILD FORMULA (15% MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE SALT) FOR NATURAL SKIN CARE AND RELAXING MUSCLE MASSAGE: Recommended for all ages, this silky magnesium cream is ideal for combination skin types (dry and oily). It works superbly as an anti-acne cream to assist skin detox for prevention of acne, whilst providing a protective hydrated finish for dry skin. Light citrus aroma from lemongrass and bergamot essential oils. Use in massage to relax muscles and joints. Great to recover from strenuous exercise. You can also use it as a deodorant. 2 teaspoons deliver 300mg elemental magnesium, which is nearly the RDA. One all over cream application provides superior magnesium supplementation better than digestion of tablets and powders. This magnesium cream is packed full of balancing plant oils and butters which enhance the absorption of magnesium transdermally. It absorbs exceptionally well, and can be used on face and body for a more youthful complexion, as well as for sun care to help skin recover better with healthy melanin production. The citronella in the natural essential oils is also a deterrent for insects.
The body uses magnesium to rest, recover from stress, re-hydrate cells, restore energy levels and strengthen bones. Magnesium and moisture provide more shock absorbing capacity for bones because magnesium has a strong affinity with water. Cells need it to be present in water in order to hydrate better. Magnesium is arguably the most important mineral electrolyte in the body for that reason. If magnesium levels drop too low bones cells start to leak out their calcium stores and this is the beginning of osteoporosis.
Magnesium helps electrical and nervous system conductance in the body, as well as keeping the fluidity of our blood circulation and lymph system normal. In a sense, magnesium and water help to keep us younger and ‘juicier’!
In order to maintain our electrolyte fluids we also need the good oils (cholesterol fats) which stop our water from evaporating into the atmosphere. The cell membrane is made up of a lipid bi-layer, which has channels that open and close, letting wastes out and allowing nutrients in. The good fats help us to stay well lubricated, keeping the moisture where it is supposed to be. The skin barrier is a similar version of protective membrane.
As 99% of magnesium in the body is stored in muscle and bone, blood levels are not accurate indicators of total body magnesium levels. Muscle and bone cells can sacrifice their stored magnesium in order to keep blood levels normal. By the time we show up with low magnesium levels in blood, it indicates much more severe magnesium depletion in the rest of the body. As we age, magnesium levels drop lower and lower and it becomes very difficult to get enough magnesium via digestion alone. However, magnesium via skin can bypass the digestive system and allow the body to drink up what it needs for replenishment.
Another bonus with Zest Citrus Magnesium Cream is that insects like mosquitoes and midges don’t like the naturally occurring citronella in the essential oils of this cream. Rich plant oils and butters nurture and protect skin, leaving a silky smooth finish. Use as daily natural face and body moisturizer, before & after sun skin care, deodorant and muscle massage cream. Made with natural and organic ingredients and 2 teaspoons provide 300mg elemental magnesium – an average daily magnesium supplement – which is more magnesium delivered to cells than by tablets or powders. And it works faster too!
Some individuals may need two or three times the average daily magnesium requirement in cases of more severe magnesium deficiency or high levels of stress. In this case extra magnesium can be supplied via Elektra Magnesium Oil Spritz, Elektra Magnesium Charge Lotion, as well as foot soaking or bathing with Elektra Magnesium Flakes.
There is no risk of overdose with transdermal magnesium because the body only takes up from the epidermis the magnesium that it can deal with at any one time. The skin acts in this way as a reservoir of nutrients – a bit like a dinner plate or smorgasbord. There are no chemicals in Elektra Magnesium products which artificially interfere with the healthy working of the skin barrier. The rich plant oils and butters help hold the magnesium ions inside the epidermal layer until used by the body. Zest Citrus Magnesium Cream helps keep the skin well hydrated, plumped up and protected for several hours after application.
