Do you have magnesium deficiency?

Magnesium (MG) is a powerful mineral that is crucial to the nervous system and muscles. Without magnesium, our body is not able to produce energy, and our muscles are in a constant state of contraction.

Magnesium is vital for the nervous system and the muscles. It relaxes the nervous system through the mood-elevating serotonin, which is dependent on magnesium. The transmission of nerve impulses in neurons occurs through neurotransmitters. These are stored in vesicles within the first neuron and are released into the synaptic cleft. The storage and release of neurotransmitters require magnesium. If there is a lack of this, storage is poor and the release of neurotransmitters becomes chaotic, causing muscle hyperexcitability, which leads to stress and muscle tension.

Mg allows the body to produce more insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1), which is a major contributor to the growth and strength of muscles and bones. Furthermore, magnesium helps the creation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the cell’s energy store.


What causes Magnesium deficiency?

Physical and emotional stress – Our adrenal glands release cortisol, adrenaline and norepinephrine hormones when our body is under stress. In survival mode, these stress hormones can be lifesaving, as they counteract the stress levels in our body, keeping blood pressure and immunity under control. However, under continuous stress, the body keeps releasing cortisol which can lead to an increase in blood pressure and sugar levels. It can also decrease libido and produce acne.

It’s a vicious cycle. While the body uses more magnesium under stressful conditions, a lack of magnesium tends to magnify the stress reaction.

Diuretics – Alcohol, coffee, blood pressure medication and birth control pills cause the kidneys to excrete more magnesium, leading to magnesium deficiency.

Diet – Refined sugar and processed foods are a significant culprit. The more we consume anti-nutrient foods, the more magnesium the kidneys will excrete. Someone who doesn’t follow a well balanced diet tends to be more deficient in magnesium than someone who does.

1 litre of magnesium oil is 80 times more concentrated in magnesium than it is in 1 litre of sea water. It consists of 30% of magnesium chloride and 100g of magnesium per litre. A study using Thalion’s Ocean Magnesium Oil was carried out at the thalassotherapy centre, Thalacap Catalogne in Banyuls. The study involved 85 thalassotherapy clients, with 55 women and 30 men, aged between 37 and 83 years. They were administered magnesium marine oil by dermal application, either through general massage or a mud wrap, according to the areas being treated. The indications of magnesium deficiency were:

How to Use Thalion’s Ocean Magnesium

To restore the level of magnesium, apply daily throughout the first three months. It is possible to adjust the amount according to personal sensitivity during the first few days. After this period, it is recommended to apply daily or at least 3-4 times a week. The needs are different for each person, thus the frequency of application should be adapted. The needs are higher for elderly people, athletes, pregnant women and people with emotional or physical stress conditions.
