Magnesium is one of the most important minerals in our body and it's estimated that 80% of humans are deficient in it. Not only does magnesium help regulate calcium, potassium and sodium, but it’s essential for cellular health and a critical component of over 300 biochemical functions in the body. Our skin is our largest and most efficient organ for delivering vital minerals and nutrients, that is why trans-dermal magnesium (on your skin) is preferred over magnesium oral supplements where most of the nutrients are lost.
Potential signs of Magnesium Deficiency:
Migraines/Headaches, Leg Cramps, Restless Leg Syndrome, Anxiety, Growing Pains, Sleep Disorders, Irritability, Nausea and Vomiting, Abnormal heart rhythms, Low blood pressure, Confusion, Muscle spasm and Weakness, Hyperventilation, insomnia.

Each Tsp. contains aprox. 156 grams of magnesium. Guidelines for magnesium dosing below:
Topical magnesium takes 30 minutes to be fully absorbed. Apply to the lower legs and/or feet prior to going to sleep. Each person has their own individual magnesium level that they need to function well. We recommend starting with about 1/3 teaspoon every night. If symptoms persist, increase to 1 tsp. This body butter is for external use only, please ensure it is out of reach of children as children might find the "chocolate" smell enticing enough to eat. Do not apply to areas of broken skin/open wounds as it might sting.
