Magnesium Oil


Here are our top three Magnesium oil spray uses:


One of the most impressive uses of magnesium is that it can help both your body and brain to relax which are both essential for falling (and staying) asleep. Magnesium has numerous muscle-relaxing properties to help your body physically unwind and relax. In addition, Magnesium is essential for regulating certain hormones and neurotransmitters (chemical messengers) that help calm the brain and promote relaxation. Magnesium binds to the receptors of one such neurotransmitter called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). GABA has inhibitory properties and helps reduce feelings of anxiety  which in turn quietens the nervous system and helps to prepare the body and mind for sleep. The best magnesium oil products have been shown to be simple and effective at improving sleep efficiency, sleep time and sleep onset, aiding in early morning awakening, and may even help with the treatment of insomnia.
Salt lab has a variety of products designed to help you get a good night's sleep. Why not try our Magnesium Bath Salts? Soaking in a luxurious warm bath infused with our Bath Flakes (salts) will help soothe aching muscles, make skin smooth and soft, and will quieten and relax your mind so you can rest easy.


Magnesium is also a number one supplement when it comes to recovery. Playing a role in many functions of the human body including muscular contraction/relaxation, bone metabolism and synthesis of fat, protein and nucleic acids, it’s no surprise that many medical specialists are now advising that magnesium should be a part of any athlete’s recovery process. Magnesium acts as an anti-inflammatory, meaning that it will help reduce joint inflammation, swelling and therefore pain levels associated with this inflammation. As it is also responsible for muscle contraction and relaxation, exercising will consume this essential mineral often leaving your body in a tense state of muscle spasm without the necessary ingredients to recover efficiently. Magnesium may also become depleted through sweating, so be sure to top up your levels post-workout in order to reduce muscle cramping and recover faster.


Magnesium helps to ensure that you are at your peak level of performance every day so it is no wonder that it is the product of choice for many athletes. Magnesium helps to regulate neuromuscular signals and muscle contractions as well as balancing calcium levels within the body. This makes it particularly effective at relieving the pain and discomfort experienced with delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). DOMS is the soreness you feel in your muscles after a particularly intense or a new type of workout and can be felt from anywhere between a few hours to multiple days post-workout. Often DOMS purely acts as a reminder of the hard work you have achieved; however, in some cases DOMS can be very severe and cause significant pain, impacting athletic performance and threatening both strength training and recovery. By applying magnesium transdermally (aka topically onto the skin) directly onto your muscles quickly eases the muscular tenderness, aches and pains experienced in overworked muscles. The rapid absorption of Salt Lab's magnesium oil ensures that athletes rapidly get the magnesium they need directly where they need it, keeping their athletic performance at the top quality they expect.
