Magnesium is vital to all living organisms. It has electrochemical, structural and catalytic functions, activates many enzymes and is a constituent of all chlorophyll’s.
What are Colloids?
Colloids are the smallest biological form of any matter. They are small enough to pass through membranes and thus they skip past the digestive process and are easily absorbed by the body.
The Potential Benefits of Colloidal Magnesium
Magnesium is required by the human body for bone, protein, fatty acid formation, the clotting of blood and the activation of B group vitamins. Magnesium is also acts as muscle relaxant in the body and plays a vital role for nerve activity.
The human body loses considerable amounts of Magnesium through sweat. The recommended daily intake for a healthy person of normal activity is 6mg per kilogram of body weight.
Because Magnesium plays so many roles within the body, it is difficult to determine many of its clinical effects. Studies have shown a reduction in blood pressure, improved vision for those suffering Glaucoma, reduced hyperactivity in prone children and adults, relief from muscle cramps, improved sleep and even benefits to those suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Potential Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency
Asthma, Anorexia, Menstrual migraines, Growth failure, ECG changes, Neuromuscular problems, Tetany involuntary contraction of muscles (convulsions), Depression, Muscular weakness, Muscle 'ties', Tremors, Vertigo and Calcification of small arteries
How to Use Colloidal Magnesium
Colloidal Magnesium is taken orally. It should be placed directly under the tongue. It is recommended that each dose is held in the mouth for as long as possible before swallowing. This allows the magnesium ions and particles to be absorbed through the skin beneath the tongue.
Potential Side Effects of Colloidal Magnesium
If a persons kidneys are in good health, there is no evidence of toxicity at an intake up to 6,000 mg per day.
