Take care of your heart – it’s been good to you.
All too often we fail to think about the health of our heart until we are of a certain age, or even worse until we’re in the midst of heart trouble.
One of the best ways to ensure heart health is to make sure that we are getting enough Magnesium.
Magnesium is naturally occurring in the body. It is found in the body’s cells and ions.
Magnesium is essential to the cell, nerve, muscle, bone, and heart functions and studies show that an alarming number of people are Magnesium deficient.
I’ve shared this before but I feel like it’s important to reiterate.
I’m not a doctor nor do I possess any medical background or education. I’m simply a woman who has chosen to take responsibility for her own health and am eager to share what I have learned and experienced.
Studies show that magnesium plays a key role in heart health. You can read more about the full study here if you’d like.
Magnesium is responsible for maintaining normal, healthy function of muscles & nerve tissue, especially those in the heart & blood vessels.
Magnesium is important to heart health because it plays a part in transporting electrolytes (ie. calcium & potassium) into cells. Electrolytes are essential for nerve signals and muscle contractions for a normal heartbeat.
Evidence shows that Magnesium deficiency plays a major role in contributing to inflammation, heart issues & illnesses, type 2 diabetes, and blood clots.
Without Magnesium, our muscles would be in a constant state of contraction.
Thus, a Magnesium deficiency can lead to stroke, atrial fibrillation, atherosclerosis, hypertension, cardiac arrhythmias, metabolic syndrome and nearly all other heart-related diseases.
I don’t mean to sound like a broken record, but this is good information! And what’s so exciting is that increasing your Magnesium intake is EASY with Magnesium Oil spray.
I shared a few weeks ago about how I used it, along with some essential oils, to relieve some sore muscles (you can read about it here) and I’ve been using it every day since then.
Magnesium Chloride is naturally occurring in the sea and can be “harvested” in a solid form (rock salt) and then reconstituted in water to create a brine which can then be bottled and used as a supplemental spray.
It only takes about 26 seconds for the skin to absorb liquids into the bloodstream so using a Magnesium spray is a quick and effective way to increase Magnesium intake and to ensure heart health.
In plants, Magnesium is the central element in chlorophyll, so incorporating that into your diet is another great way to increase your Magnesium intake!
You may be wondering why this is such a big deal to me. Well, my maternal grandfather died of a heart attack before the age of sixty and my mom was two months shy of her sixty-second birthday when she passed away from a heart attack as well.
With my family history, along with being aware of my own body, I have chosen to delve into the topic of heart health so that I can ensure that I am doing what’s best to make my heart healthy and happy.
Studies show that increasing Magnesium intake reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease by over 30% and has even reversed the signs of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
The studies even suggest that if you have been diagnosed with some form of heart disease to ask your doctor to test you for Magnesium deficiency because no, it is NOT something they automatically test you for.
I sure hope that changes!
For me, my family history, personal symptoms, and the findings in my research are all reasons for the continued use of Magnesium Oil spray in my daily personal care routine.
Both Magnesium Oil spray and liquid chlorophyll are easily available. In fact, I order mine through Amazon.

I hope this article helps to shed a little bit of insight, on not only the benefits of Magnesium but also of being in tune with your own body. I hope it encourages you to not be afraid of taking responsibility for your own health.
Self-care isn’t just about one thing or another, it’s about our entire being, which includes the heart, so be kind to it, it’s been kind to you!
Thank you for taking the time to be here. I appreciate you!
