Nicole, what inspired you to create Life with Magnesium?
As the mother of three beautiful boys, the oldest of which suffers from juvenile arthritis, I started investigating natural, long term, practical solutions to his symptoms. My research led me to the discovery of the importance of magnesium in our everyday lives and the various forms magnesium can take.
After experimenting with a few existing magnesium based options, I began working with a number of different ingredients to develop products that worked for our family. Whilst he is not completely pain free magnesium has been an integral part of managing his pain.
What initially started as a way of finding a solution for our family has grown quickly into a small business that is teaching me new things on a daily basis. I am passionate about what we have created and am always interested in exploring new opportunities to outline the benefits associated with magnesium.
What is magnesium and why is it so crucial for us?
Magnesium is an essential mineral responsible for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body.
Adequate levels of magnesium within our bodies will ensure we are stronger and better equipped to manage both physical and emotional stress. Its presence enables our cells to repair and detox and ultimately result in a healthy, functioning body.
Reasons why we must be using magnesium products?
Magnesium may assist in reducing depression and anxiety, high stress levels, insomnia, restless legs, nausea, headaches and migraines, muscle aches and pains, and hair loss.
Further, there is evidence to suggest magnesium is key to calcium absorption, as they work in a very special relationship with each other in the body.
Magnesium also has stress-relieving abilities, which can help to reduce stress-related skin irritations such as acne and rosacea.
