This Mother’s Day, give the most important woman in your life one of the most powerful mineral relaxation rituals – magnesium therapy.
Health pioneers BetterYou say its award-winning Magnesium range could help mum’s beat the sleep deprived blues, helping to relax muscles and feelings of restlessness as magnesium is nature’s finest relaxant.
Magnesium is an essential mineral which plays a crucial role in more than 300 different biochemical reactions each day. A body with the proper level of magnesium will be more supple, will resist fatigue for longer and will be better able to repair itself.
Katrina Mather, founder of detox health retreat The Body Toolkit, counts on magnesium therapy after being inspired by Dr Carolyn Dean's book, 'The Magnesium Miracle', where almost every health complaint is linked to a lack of magnesium in our modern diet.
Katrina says: “Magnesium therapy is one of the key ‘tools’ at my health retreat. I give every guest a detox hamper containing some BetterYou Original Magnesium Oil Spray and Magnesium Bath Flakes to use during the week. Transdermal supplementation (absorbing magnesium through the skin) is the fastest and easiest way to up your levels.
“I find magnesium helps enormously with muscle pain, cramping, stiffness, joint issues, anxiety and sleeping problems. I suffered from terrible dysmenorrhea (period cramps) for about a decade and would feel physically sick with the pain. But after some research I discovered that this cramping was just a lack of magnesium. I'm delighted to say that now I don't even feel a twinge at that time of the month.
“Diet changes and magnesium therapy have changed my life."
Without magnesium our bodies are less supple, and deficiency is linked with many health implications including migraines, anxiety, depression and extreme fatigue. A magnesium rich bath or a few body sprays after a shower will leave you feeling relaxed as well as effectively replenishing your body’s levels.
Katrina continues: "I had a lady in her 70’s visit the retreat, who was an anxiety sufferer and self-confessed terrible sleeper – averaging an hour a night. After just three days of juicing, drinking plenty of water and religiously using BetterYou Magnesium Oil Spray at the retreat, she slept from 11pm to 5am - something she hadn't done in over a year. That's the power of magnesium therapy."
Supplementing magnesium transdermally is incredibly easy to do. Applied directly to the skin; magnesium will be absorbed directly into the skin tissue, entering cells immediately replacing magnesium lost through the stresses of modern life. BetterYou’s transdermal magnesium products are perfectly designed for topical application and are available in a number of different forms including Magnesium Oil, Magnesium Flakes and the new Magnesium Body Butter and Lotion formulations.
A trial by Cardiff University found that applying magnesium to the skin provides a faster way of absorbing the mineral than tablets.
Andrew Thomas founder and managing director of BetterYou said: “Giving someone a mineral, even one as powerful and as proven as magnesium, might sound like an unusual Mother’s Day present.
“But with stress levels soaring, what you are really giving your mum is a tool to aid relaxation and help combat stress. We are constantly hearing from customers who tell us about the tangible benefits magnesium is bringing to their mental and physical wellbeing, so we can think of nothing better to give your loved ones than magnesium this Mother’s Day.”
BetterYou has also introduced the perfect partner to its Magnesium Flakes – a Magnesium Inflatable Footbath. With the feet amongst the most absorbent areas of the body and perfect for magnesium replenishment – the footbath can bring the luxury of a spa treatment to your own home which will be followed by a wonderful slumber.
