The word ‘superfood’ is something we are hearing more and more about as their health benefits are marketed to us on a daily basis but what are the latest superfoods?
If you google the top ten you’ll find amongst them; blueberries, nuts, seafood, dark green vegetables, fish and dark chocolate to name a few; but there is something about these so called ‘superfoods’ that we’re missing and that is that they all contain a vital mineral that so many of us are deficient in today.
Andrew Thomas, founder and managing director at BetterYou said: “The link that all of the advertised ‘superfoods’ hold is magnesium. Magnesium is an essential element for a healthy body and is used in over 300 reactions on a daily basis.
“A fantastic natural relaxant it helps to rid the body of excess tension. Crucial for bone health magnesium encourages the body to absorb calcium which could otherwise, over time result in a build-up on soft tissue and muscles, causing them to harden.
“A body with the right amount of magnesium will be more supple, will resist fatigue for longer and will better repair itself.”
A clinical trial by Cardiff University (2011) showed how well magnesium is absorbed through the skin using Magnesium Oil, feeding every cell. Watkins & Josling (2010) showed the dramatic increase in magnesium levels that can be achieved with Magnesium Oil compared to oral supplements when used on magnesium-deficient patients.
