The Advantages of Transdermal Absorption
The advantages of transdermal absorption are varied including the direct application of medicine over an area of pain for more effective pain relief, the more rapid entry into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract where it can be reduced in its effect by enzyme and acid actions, and increased absorption and bioavailability.
In the case of Magnesium it can reduce the common side effect of diarrhea that is the single-most limiting factor to increasing our magnesium levels sufficiently. Taken orally, only 30-40% of the magnesium is actually absorbed possibly less. Dr. Jay Cohen, MD, states that "When you take magnesium tablets or capsules, our body absorbs only 30 percent of the magnesium they contain. With many top-selling products, absorption is much less, as little as 10 percent."
This is why our topical sprays, oils and body and foot soaks are the most effective and direct way to absorb the purest form of Magnesium Chloride.
