It's estimated 70-80% of humans are deficient in magnesium! Here at Healthful Wellness we are huge fans of magnesium for a variety of things, read on for our top 5 uses for magnesium.


Sleep Well

Many people will have improved sleep and some will even sleep like a baby when using a magnesium spray, popping magnesium oil on soles of feet and even doubling down with a soak in a magnesium bath before bed. Remember, good sleep is essential for good health!

Improved Muscle Function

If you have tight muscles from sitting all day or from exercise it can be difficult and even painful to efficiently perform simple movements. Magnesium will be a game changer for your performance. It will help relax and contract your muscles more freely and with less pain.


If you take a look at the back of your favorite high quality water most will list minerals or trace minerals, which include magnesium. Being active, taking saunas or environmental elements means you'll sweat a lot which also means you need to replace lost minerals.

Stress Less

When you're deficient in magnesium you can feel it on many levels, including the nervous system. You may become more irritable and more anxious.

 Excess levels of the primary stress hormone cortisol contribute to anxiety, brain fog, depression, mood swings, memory loss, dementia, concentration problems, insomnia, and mental disorders of all kinds

On a chemical level, magnesium activates the parasympathetic nervous system, the system responsible for getting you calm and relax.

Soothe Sore Muscles

Ever take an Epsom salt bath or have had someone tell you to take one after a big workout or injury? It’s the best! Take a soak in epsom salts or magnesium crystals for muscle relief or use a magnesium spray.
