MAGNESIUM…The Miracle Mineral!

 

 Why do we put magnesium in our Stank Stop Deodorant? Let us explain…

Dr. Pierre Delbet was a French surgeon who did a bunch of research back in 1928 on Magnesium and its effects on the human body. One thing that he noticed during his research is that magnesium can actually improve the way we smell!

“Magnesium chloride stimulates the biliary system. Perhaps this is the mechanism by which it regularizes salts. At a dose of I gram 20 mg. magnesium chloride can be considered only as a purgative, but it regularizes salts as a matter of course. Taken continuously, it brings them out in many persons who are chronically constipated, and reduces them in many who are diarrhetic. In a few days, if their diets contain nothing particularly toxic, it deodorizes them. It is a very striking phenomenon: their fecal matter loses all of its disagreeable odor. That can be due only to a modification of the intestinal flora, but I haven’t succeeded in noting what the modification consists of. Even though it seems a little puerile to establish a relationship between fetidity and toxicity, we do it instinctively; so this deodorization seems advantageous, particularly in patients who won’t evacuate stercoral matter for two or three days after the operation.”

So this is why we’ve added magnesium oil into our Stank Stop deodorant. Unfortunately, EVERYONE needs more magnesium in their diet: adults average only 66% of the Daily Value for magnesium from their food intake, even though they get another 8% from supplements.

As with most things, we recommend that you try to get as much of this very important mineral via real, whole foods. Some foods that are rich in magnesium include:

  • Dark Leafy greens
  • Nuts and Seeds
  • Avocados
  • Fish (Mackerel)
  • Bananas
  • Dark Chocolate

If you’re unable to reach the recommended 400 mg per day via food, you can also use magnesium supplementation. My favorite form is topical. I recommend using Ancient Minerals Ultra Pure Magnesium Oil every night before you go to sleep. Just apply 2 sprays to each foot right before bed! This topical application before bed also has the added benefits of helping you get more restful sleep.

Another great way to supplement is with Natural Vitality Natural Calm. I really like these individual packets because they’re easy for traveling, and there’s no muss and fuss of measuring. I mean, check out the amazon reviews on this stuff! People LOVE it! You might be amazed at how much better you feel once you have balance your magnesium levels!

You can find magnesium oil in our Stank Stop deodorant as well as in our Calming Body Butta!
