Magnesium for Muscle Pain & Relaxation

Muscle pain is something we all experience from time to time, and it can range from mild to excruciating. While it stands as one of the most common discomforts, muscle pain is not something that should be ignored. It can result in a consistent loss of sleep, an inability to do one’s job and can even lead to more debilitating conditions such as anxiety and depression. Some muscle aches and pains will go away on their own within a short time, but some muscle pain can linger for months.

Muscle pain can develop pretty much anywhere in the body, including our neck, back, legs and even our hands. There are preventative measures that can play a part in keeping muscle pain at bay, such as: regular stretching and exercise, acknowledgement of our physical limits, and living a generally healthy lifestyle. However, that being said, a lack of sufficient magnesium in the body (known as magnesium deficiency) may be causing muscle tension, tightness, and even spasms.

When there isn’t enough magnesium in our cells, calcium can take over – causing painful and spontaneous twitching, cramping & tightening.”

Everything from muscle knots and cramping to painful contractions and spasms can be a sign that your cells do not have enough magnesium. Calcium and magnesium are in constant competition within our bodies, as they bind with the same proteins that are present within our muscles. When we have any significant build-up of calcium, it can cause our muscles to start over-contracting – which then leads to painful or uncomfortable spasms and twitches.

Simply put – when we have a lack of magnesium in our cells, the calcium starts to take control. That’s when we start to get fits of painful, spontaneous twitching; along with possible cramping and tightening. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, applying topical magnesium could be the fastest, most efficient solution.

While magnesium is available in a number of different forms, some may not provide the results you’re searching for – and others can even cause digestive discomfort (ie. nausea, stomach upset, loose bowels, etc.)

This is why we are so passionate about the power and potential of our topical magnesium line! We offer cream and spray options, both are easy to apply directly to areas of discomfort or general areas of the body (lower abdomen or feet) for optimal absorption. Topical magnesium is a welcome, convenient addition to your gym bag (for post-workout pain relief), briefcase (to deal with screen time-induced neck tension) or handbag (to tackle troublesome pain throughout the day). It can also be an absolute lifesaver when kept on your bedside table, as muscle and joint pain for most seems to be amplified at night.

Pro-tip: The addition of arnica to our standard Relive & Relax Magnesium Cream formula creates an extra strength offering for those who experience moderate to severe muscle and joint pain. Both versions of the cream contain the same amount of magnesium; the arnica is an added benefit for folks dealing with chronic or intense pain and inflammation.
