By Salt Lab | Published the 14th May 2021

A: Yes!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a female, adequate levels of magnesium improve your ability to:⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🖤 Better manage stress⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🖤 Produce and regulate your sex hormones⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🖤 Maintain thyroid hormones⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🖤 Regulate blood sugar and improve insulin sensitivity⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🖤 Prevent muscle cramps associated with PMS⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🖤 Produce glutathione and assist in detoxification⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🖤 Improve bowel movements and minimise bloating, constipation, and trapped wind.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Without enough of it, you could be at risk of PMS, PCOS, chronic fatigue, thyroid disorders, and menstruation issues.

Magnesium is the life force within us, it is responsible for over 300 reactions in the body and is crucial to ensure we are able to perform optimally in our day to day lives. Once we are deficient in magnesium our bodies will start to talk to us through aches and pains.

Do you find yourself doubling over with agonising cramps each month? Or feeling down and out with exhaustion and ALL of the emotions? You are not alone and magnesium could be your queen to carry you through. Research indicates that magnesium supplementation can help greatly to reduce the severity of menstrual pains. This is because magnesium acts as a natural muscle relaxant and anti-inflammatory agent.⠀⠀

Not only that, but magnesium can also help with:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Migraines⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fluid retention⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fatigue & low energy⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Brain fog⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cravings ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cycle-related mood disorders like anxiety⠀⠀

Since fluctuations in our hormones work to deplete our magnesium levels, it’s crucial that we as females are topping up on this mineral - especially during that time of the month.⠀⠀⠀

Other things that deplete our magnesium stores include;⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Stress⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Coffee⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Alcohol⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Exercise⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sweating⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sugar⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Many foods that contain magnesium have been stripped of this mineral due to nutrient depletion in our soil - meaning a good diet alone often isn’t enough for us!⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The most effective & effortless way to replenish your magnesium is to supplement with topical magnesium - in the form of our Mag Oil or Deconstructed Bath Bomb.

It is through the skin that our body can access this mineral and put it to work without having to rely on our often under performing digestive system to process it.
