Ocean water is very rich in magnesium, but it is not possible to swim daily in the ocean? Magnesium has a role in the synthesis of essential molecules like DNA, RNA and proteins. Magnesium has long been called a miracle mineral, because it is so critical to our overall health.
What is Magnesium Oil?
It is difficult to consume enough magnesium through diet alone but we can also absorb magnesium through our skin and it is the best way to get your daily dose of this wonderful mineral. Magnesium oil is oily but there is no oil—it is approximately 35% magnesium chloride. It’s actually just a kind of salt water. It’s called magnesium oil because it has an oily feel on the skin when applied.
