Many natural sources of magnesium in water and soil have become depleted, and our diets, stress, and prescription drugs tend to further deplete this vital mineral. Magnesium is necessary for over 300 reactions in our body, but not easily absorbed through our digestive track. Instead of “supplementing”, I prefer to find natural sources. Leafy green vegetables are one good dietary source of magnesium. Epsom salt baths and homemade magnesium whipped shea butter are a great way to absorb magnesium through the skin.
