Magnesium

Magnesium

It's estimated that 85% of Americans are magnesium deficient.

At most 4% of the magnesium you take orally is available to your body.

Your body needs massive amounts of magnesium for over 300 enzyme processes.

The CDC once said that magnesium deficiency is so prevalent in this country and responsible for so many medical problems that physicians should be treating magnesium deficiency before they treat anything else.

The good news is this is an easy fix.

Topical Sprays

Recommended: 500-600mg/day (Equals about 30-40 sprays with most bottles)

There is often dosing information on the bottle (for example: 4 sprays = 66mg). You can use that to calculate how many sprays you need.

You can buy sprays from us, in local stores, or online.

When shopping for a spray, read the ingredients and avoid any that are made from a brine. Brine tends to be highly irritating to the skin.

Unlink most supplements, with magnesium sprays you don't have to spend a lot of money to get one that will work. $10-15/bottle is about the average, though some are considerably more. However, spending a little more will usually mean the spray is less likely to irritate the skin.

If you're worried about irritation, be sure to watch the video How to Use Magnesium Topical Spray for some tips and tricks on getting started.

Del Sol purchase:

We sell one by Now Foods (not made from a brine) both in the office and online. It's $7.88 plus tax, and it's a pretty basic spray, but it works just fine.

For sensitive skin:

If you are known to have highly sensitive skin, easily prone to irritation, you may consider jumping right to this option. It's the most expensive, but also the most refined, and very unlikely to irritate the skin.

Per the product information, this bottle delivers 22mg of magnesium per spray and recommends 25-50 sprays per day. That is in line with our recommendation of 500-600mg per day.

Oral Magnesium

Topical sprays work better. However, there are circumstances in which oral magnesium is required--either in addition to or in place of the topical spray.

We only recommend ONE oral option. Check out this short video to learn why oral magnesium can't be used by your body.

After searching high and low, and trying many oral options, this is the only oral option we found to work. That's because it's absorbed differently and very early.

It doesn't taste the best, but if mixed with strawberry lemonade or similar, the taste is not detectable.

For anyone who has a hard time using the topical spray for any reason, this oral supplement is a good option.

Probiotics

Probiotics

Everyone needs a daily probiotic. You need a healthy balance of good bacteria to bad bacteria in your gut. Good bacteria dies off quickly and must be replaced daily. If it is not, the bad bacteria quickly take over, as those do not die off.

Over the years, we've found three good options for probiotics. If you would like help making a choice, you're welcome to contact us. Otherwise, we invite you to read about these three options and get started using one.

Most Recommended

For most people in most circumstances, we like the basic soil-based probiotic from RnAReset. It is shelf-stable and does not need to be refrigerated.

Another Option

Another top recommendation would be Garden of Life's Dr. Formulated Probiotic. Read more about it here.

A COUPLE OF THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND:

-This item is refrigerated. It is usually not wise to order it online. You'll have to pay for cold, one-day shipping, which is expensive, and if there is any shipping delay, the product is put at risk.

-Because it is refrigerated, it's better to purchase this locally. King Soopers has the best price we've seen (beating out Sprouts and Whole Foods), and even better, the put it on sale every three or four months. If you watch for the sale, you can purchase several at the sale price and get through to the next sale.

-The item linked above, the "Immune + Colon" blend, is the best of the options in this line. It is recommended whether or not you're specifically looking for "immune" or "colon" support. It has the strains of bacteria your gut really needs.

-The other blends available are only different in that they provide one or two strains less (not good), and include additives you don't need (or need more of to be helpful).

-The shelf-stable options do not offer

Specialty Option

For certain folks, this item tends to be the key to everything. Though it is not for everyone.

If you've taken antibiotics recently, or plan to, this would be highly recommended for you to help replenish the bacteria your gut needs. This item is also good for anyone who has done a lot of traveling, or plans to, and has the tummy troubles that sometimes come with that.
