Transdermal magnesium therapy is simply a method of delivering minerals to the body through the skin (i.e. transdermal). This isn’t a new concept – topical remedies anointed, bandaged, rubbed or applied to the skin are likely to have been used since the origin of man! More recent, science-based examples include nicotine patches to help smokers quit, or estrogen patches to treat menopausal symptoms. Despite a long history and evidence based approach, the idea of reaching our daily intake of magnesium through the skin may be a foreign notion to many, particularly as we have been commonly taught to get our nutrients from food sources. However, when it comes to magnesium, many people struggle to reach their daily targets through diet alone.
