I’ve been hearing a lot about magnesium and how women of a certain age-ahem-can benefit by using this essential mineral supplement. It seems most anyone could be deficient in magnesium and a lot of us are, without knowing we are. At least that’s what I hear.
When I started this blog I had recently found out my A1C was high and I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I immediately went to work losing weight, eating better, and exercising and I have been able to control the disease without medications, so far. Thank you, Lord.
Apparently, type II diabetes can make one magnesium deficient. I guess it’s all that running to the ladies room that does it. Not sure that is my problem, cuz I don’t run a lot, but I run more than some.
Anyway, my post today is about the pondering I’ve done regarding magnesium deficiency and a magnesium lotion supplement I bought some time ago but never used. Here’s my problem: My natural food provider sold this product to me, but without telling me how I can tell when enough is enough.
How much of this stuff should I slather on in the morning?
Is a dab enough?
Is a squirt too much?
There are no indicators on the bottle of what might happen if I overdose on magnesium. Is that even possible?
Do any of you have experience magnesium lotions or creams? This is the type I’m using:
I’d love to hear your thoughts on how you get more magnesium into your system in safe ways. I really don’t feel like I need one more supplement to take on a daily basis, but hey, if it will help, I’m up for it.
Please share your experience with magnesium supplements. I hear the pill form is a waste of money, but I certainly don’t know that. In fact, I know very little about this subject, which is why I’m bringing it here. Thanks for sharing!
