A Cornerstone for Achieving Vibrant Health

ancient minerals transdermal magnesium

From pain killers to anti-depressants to hormone replacement, countless people have turned to transdermal medicine, whether because they can’t swallow pills, their digestive systems are impaired, or simply due to personal preference.

Using magnesium transdermally addresses all of these concerns.

Topical magnesium:

So long as a molecule or ion is small enough to pass through the porous surface of the skin, it will eventually end up in your blood stream.  Topical magnesium takes advantage of the absorptive properties of body’s largest organ, putting it to work for you in the form of a simple spray, soak, or massage.

The skin is a living, breathing organ — the most efficient organ for detoxification with tremendous potential for re-mineralizing the body. What happens when combine the human body’s most well functioning organ with one of the most life giving minerals available? A cornerstone for achieving vibrant health.

HOW IS TOPICAL MAGNESIUM ABSORBED THROUGH THE SKIN?

The skin, the largest organ of the body, has three primary functions:

While one function of the skin, its barrier function, is to keep water and moisture in while keeping germs and toxins out, the skin’s other functions, temperature control and detoxification, could not occur if the skin was truly a complete barrier.

When you sweat, for example, you are both controlling your body’s temperature and naturally excreting toxins through your skin. If you can push out toxins, you can pull them in as well. One example of this phenomenon is that fact that a person who regularly uses underarm deodorant containing aluminum will actually show aluminum content in a fecal or urine test.

A Definition of Dermal Absorption

In fact, many substances do pass into the body from the outer surface of the skin and into the circulation. To understand how this works, imagine a tightly woven fabric. While from a distance it may appear impervious, at close range it is actually highly porous.  It is this porous nature of the skin, with its millions of tiny openings, that allows not only sweat and other toxins to escape, but also enables the absorption of some substances.

The process is known as dermal absorption. Once a substance passes through the outer layers of skin, it passes into the lymph and local vascular (blood vessel) system and soon after into the bloodstream.http://www.who.int/ipcs/features/2006/ehc235/en/index.html.

Routes of Absorption of Topical Magnesium

While the exact mechanisms of skin transfer are yet to be completely understood, three routes of penetration have been hypothesized:
