How many of us are working from home, sitting at desks or kitchen tables that are not ergonomically designed to keep you in the right position for hours on end? Pins and needles? Cramps? Crossing your legs, slouching and forgetting to breathe properly can all lead to you feeling a bit uncomfortable and if your wrists are not in the right position you may find they are sore too. Exercise and breathing properly can all be a great help, but if you find you are still feeling tired, lethargic or suffering from aches and pains, then you should read on!
Research has discovered that over 75% of the population is deficient in magnesium. Symptoms can include aches and pains, muscle spasms, fatigue, sore or aching joints, headaches and PMS symptoms.
Magnesium deficiency can be due to a number of factors changing including modern farming practices, soil quality, fertilisers, mineral content in our diets and stresses and strains of modern day living. In order to enrich your diet, you can eat foods high in magnesium such as those shown below. Magnesium food supplements vary in strength, although some people find it can make their stomachs upset and it also takes time to be digested and get to work.
Our new range of Magnesium Body Butters deliver the magnesium you need through transdermal application, which is gentle and effective and starts to work immediately. Our selection of magnesium butters are blended with a selection of pain relieving and relaxing essential oils, which have been chosen to relieve pain, reduce tension and enhance relaxation.
