Why I love Magnesium

It's no secret I love nothing more than staying home on a Saturday night and having a long relaxing bath (I know, exciting right?!) So, if I could replicate the effects of a bath and put it into a bottle for those times when a bath is not an option it would be in the form of MgLIFE Magnesium Oil Spray. 

I love this product so much I thought I'd share it with you in the studio so that you can enjoy the benefits too. The reason I love MgLIFE is because it is the most pure, concentrated magnesium oil on the market and made from 100% Australian organically certified ingredients (trust me, I've tried them all!). 

Don't just take my word for it though, have a read below as to why Magnesium is so good for our active Pilates bodies. 


Magnesium — a mineral our body needs to be healthy

Magnesium is essential for over 300 of our body’s metabolic reactions! Every cell of our body needs it, it’s vital for our brain-health, heart-health, muscle contraction, bone strength and energy production. Symptoms of magnesium deficiency range from fatigue to insomnia, to muscle aches and pains and it can also affect our moods and anxiety levels.

Three quarters of all Australians are magnesium deficient

Studies have shown that the average diet is not providing enough magnesium for the body to function at its best. So, what about magnesium tablets? Many people have problems absorbing oral supplements, with up to 90% not being absorbed at all.

The solution is applying magnesium oil on the skin

In 30 minutes, your skin will absorb the magnesium in the oil. It’s such an easy way to get the magnesium that is so vital for our general well-being. People who are lacking in magnesium report many benefits once they introduce the Magnesium Oil into their daily routine. Here are just a few…

Muscle relaxant for soreness prevention and workout recovery

Because the oil can be used as a natural muscle relaxant, applying it before and after exercise can help relieve the aches and pains that occur during and after exercise. Helps prevent DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) and cramping.

Restless legs and muscle pain

Alleviate restless legs and muscle pain by applying directly to the problem areas.


A number of studies have found magnesium is very good at breaking down the different fats and oils that form in our skin every day. An ideal treatment for skin irritations such as acne, blackheads and other stress-related skin conditions.

Sleep improvement

Magnesium helps our bodies by relaxing certain receptors in our brain and nervous system. It also aids neurological and physiological processes when the body is under pressure. Applying Magnesium Oil to the soles of your feet and/or your calves just before bed allows your body to absorb this vital mineral so you can relax and get a great night’s sleep.

Headaches and migraines

Applying to the base of your neck and/or hairline can alleviate headaches. Magnesium helps with headaches as it helps lower the brain’s temperature and also regulates key hormones that help us to relax.


Using MgLIFE Magnesium Oil helps you maintain a healthy magnesium intake for your everyday well-being. You can make it part of your daily routine in the morning, apply directly to a certain part of your body before or after exercise, rub it on your feet just before you go to bed or add it to your next warm bath.

4 pumps provide on average 117mg of elemental magnesium / 460mg of magnesium chloride (approximately 1ml)
