Magnesium is essential for cellular health and over 300 biochemical functions in the body. Unfortunately, around 80 percent of American’s may have a magnesium deficiency and the majority of them don’t even know it!
Sixty percent of the magnesium in the body is found in bone and 26% in muscle–making this trace mineral an essential part of baby's developing musculoskeletal system. Magnesium and magnesium rich foods will help during 2nd and 3rd trimester insomnia, muscle cramps, restless legs, and constipation. Sufficient levels of magnesium during pregnancy can help keep the uterus from contracting prematurely.
Unlike internal doses of magnesium, topical magnesium does not have to pass through the digestive system and kidneys and can more quickly enter the blood and tissues of the body.
