How to use Transdermal Magnesium

Transdermal Magnesium People often ask, “How much do I use?” There is no hard and fast rule about how much transdermal magnesium to use because everyone is different. An athlete, a busy executive, a shift worker or someone undergoing surgery could need 1,000mg of magnesium supplementation per day, whilst others who are quite relaxed and have a good diet may need only 300-400mg magnesium extra.

Most of us are somewhere in between. And it fluctuates from day to day depending on your stress levels and what you have eaten. Using transdermal magnesium optimally can vary a lot from person to person.

Transdermal Magnesium – Stress Looses Magnesium

Stress looses the most magnesium because we use up magnesium to counteract a stress event like running for the bus, over-training or public speaking, ie. a fight or flight episode where you have had to pump out a lot of adrenaline and cortisone ready for alert fast action of some kind. These stress hormones collect more calcium in tissue cells in order to tighten the fibres and contract muscles – ready to fight, run away or perform something risky. Calcium is a tightening and hardening mineral.

When it’s time for muscles to relax and recover, the brain sends messages for magnesium to go back in and relieve the grip of the calcium to loosen up and relax the muscle fibres again. This is the recovery phase. However magnesium has many more jobs to do – one of which is to help neutralise the spent oxidised stress chemicals in the blood on their way out.

The kidney detects that magnesium has increased in the blood supply (along with the stress hormones) and proceeds to release more magnesium in the urine to restore normal levels in the blood. That means your tissue cells may have lost heaps of magnesium, but your blood supply is still in the normal range. A blood test will not necessarily tell you in this case how much magnesium is left in the tissue cells (muscle and bone) where most of your magnesium is used.

If your tissue cells run very low in reserves then the lesser amount of available magnesium means your muscles will find it harder to recover from stresses, leaving more and more calcium hooking in the contraction phase of muscle fibres, and causing symptoms like cramps, twitches, restless legs and involuntary muscle spasms.

The strange thing about muscle spasms is that they are also a result of lack of hydration. In the process of ‘squeezing’ by calcium, the muscle also looses some water. Magnesium’s charge helps hold water in the cell membrane, whereas when magnesium leaves or decreases, the cell wall becomes more leaky, allowing in the calcium and letting go of its hydration.
