(NaturalNews) Many call it the master mineral, yet eighty percent or more of modern society is deficient. It is a basic element of over 300 cellular metabolic processes. It's magnesium. As important as it is, it is vastly underrated and underused by health practitioners and physicians.

The combination of depleted topsoil and food processing have minimized or completely removed plant magnesium from our diets. If your digestion is good, and you're eating all organic produce and whole grains, you may not be among the deficient. Nevertheless, supplementing is wise.

With all the focus on antioxidants and vitamins among alternative health fans, it's easy to ignore this basic fact: Without minerals, vitamins can't function. In other words, minerals are more important than vitamins. Only water and oxygen are more important than minerals.

So if you are not enjoying optimum health, if you're tense and on edge, if you've had some cardiovascular issues, lung and bronchial problems, muscular aches and cramping, sleep disorders, nervousness, high blood pressure, diabetes, brittle bones, and chronic fatigue, you may benefit greatly from some serious magnesium supplementation.

Magnesium has been successfully used for those conditions and symptoms as well as others. If any symptoms mentioned are not eased with increased proper magnesium supplementation, there is little if any danger of toxicity. The fact that magnesium is involved with so many metabolic processes makes it clear that it can't hurt to have more than enough magnesium in your body.

Supplemental magnesium forms

Unless you have a known calcium deficiency, it's best to avoid those calcium-magnesium combos commonly sold. Calcium is over consumed in our culture. Excess calcium that cannot be absorbed into bone matter winds up calcifying or hardening arteries.

Magnesium helps your bones absorb calcium, and vitamin K2 can help take calcium out of your blood stream and move it into your bones.

Magnesium sulfate, commonly called Epsom salt, is the most common and inexpensive source of magnesium available. It's best suited for soaking. If taken orally, you may wind up with diarrhea instead of more magnesium in your body. It also contains more impurities than other magnesium sources and is not retained as well.

Magnesium citrate is produced by combining magnesium carbonate with citric acid. It is assimilated well and retained better than magnesium sulfate. A water and magnesium citrate powder mix for oral consumption produces a calming effect and relaxes muscles rapidly. Many drink it before bed time to help get a good night's sleep.

Magnesium chloride as magnesium oil is currently the most highly promoted supplement form of magnesium. It comes from underground or ancient sea beds. It can be used for soaking, but it's easier to simply apply a small amount to any part of the skin.

It's called magnesium oil because it has a slippery feeling, but it's not oil. It is a briny, high concentration of magnesium chloride in water. Many health practitioners consider this transdermal method of applying magnesium chloride as the most bang for the buck when it comes to high bio-availability and mineral retention.

Caveat.There are rare cases of allergic skin irritation reactions with transdermal magnesium chloride. So it's a good idea to sample a small amount on the back of your hand first.
