Children can benefit tremendously from getting adequate magnesium in their amazing little bodies. Modern lifestyle and paucity of time means frequent takeout or quick-fix meals at home, which may lead to an inadequate intake of key nutrients.
Adding to this unhealthy trend is the fact that children can be picky eaters, choosing tasty over healthy food.
While poor diet is the primary culprit of magnesium deficiency, intensive exercise and stress are also other common factors that can deplete a child's body of magnesium.
Parents should review their child's food consumption to ensure that there is adequate magnesium laden foods in their diet. Supplements are necessary and an equally important practice to fill the nutritional gaps in their child's diet.
Dr. Carolyn Dean, a leading expert in magnesium, emphasizes the requirement for supplementing magnesium deficiency in children’s diet in her book, The Magnesium Miracle.
"It's not just adults who get anxious because of magnesium-deficient diets. Our children are also susceptible when their favourite foods are magnesium-deficient hot dogs, pizza, and soda. The stress in their lives - from peer pressure, academic and athletic performance pressures, worries about body image, the changes and hormonal fluctuations of puberty, exposure to negative events and violence through the media - also contributes. Even playing in a band (because of the loud noise) can be a risk factor! ADHD, autism, juvenile delinquency, and childhood depression are associated with magnesium deficiency, and some say these conditions can be caused by it."
Midas Magnesium oil is a high strength formula that is fast acting and easily absorbed transdermally. This is especially useful as some children may struggle to swallow capsules or tablets and usually do not require a full high dosage. A mere 130mg (children ages 4 to 8) or 240mg (children ages 9 to 13) daily will do the trick according to the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA).
Midas Magnesium works in a similar fashion as topical applications such as BENGAY or Tiger Balm in that it helps to relieve sore muscles after a workout.
It also continues to give by building up your magnesium levels in your body.
When you use this form of magnesium oil on your body, what you're doing is applying through your skin.
These ions can then fasten to the cells and help relieve the body from accumulating toxins, while thereby helps decrease the stress/fatigue associated with exercise.
Ultimately what happens in your body with an infusion of magnesium chloride is your body detoxes more efficiently. It transports oxygen more efficiently as red blood cell profiles are improved, and your cells become healthier and better suited for energy transference (along with a host of other obvious benefits).
MAGNESIUM OIL IN SPORTS
Dr. Mark Circus, a renowned expert on the effects of magnesium in the body, writes this about what happens when you introduce magnesium chloride into the body transdermally:
Transdermal magnesium therapy is ideal for pain management. The combination of heat and magnesium chloride increases circulation and waste removal. Magnesium chloride, when applied directly to the skin is transdermally absorbed and has an almost immediate effect on pain.
Transdermal magnesium therapy offers an exciting breakthrough in sports medicine. Coaches can now treat injuries, prevent them, and increase athletic performance all at the same time. Transdermal magnesium chloride mineral therapy enhances recovery from athletic activity or injuries. It reduces pain and inflammation while inducing quicker regeneration of tissues. Topical application of magnesium chloride increases flexibility, which helps avoid injury. It also increases strength and endurance.
