Hmmm… what to get your mom this Mother’s Day?
We have a few ideas.
What if you give your mom the gift of health? Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body; however globally 60% of the adult population and more than 70% of children and teenagers are magnesium deficient. Crazy, right.
Magnesium is responsible for hundreds of biochemical reactions in our bodies, including protein and energy creation, DNA and RNA repair, muscular function, and regulating our nervous systems. It also helps boost athletic performance, combats depression and improves sleep – and let’s be honest which Mom doesn’t need more sleep – the list of benefits derived from healthy magnesium levels is almost endless.
The transdermal use of magnesium – applying it to the skin for absorption into the blood stream – has gained substantial attention as it bypasses the digestive system and can provide faster results in comparison to oral supplementation. This transdermal application is particularly useful in the sporting world where athletes and players need targeted and fast acting therapy.
Introducing the Wintergreen’s Magnesium Range.
A relaxing soak
A warm 20 minute bath in Wintergreen Magnesium Soak, made with the highest grades of pure magnesium sulphate (Epsom Salts) and magnesium chloride, opens the pores in the skin allowing for the best possible absorption rate – improving circulation. Additionally this assists the easing of stiffness and pain in muscles while reducing inflammation in aching joints, overall helping to detox the body from the effects of lactic acid build up after an intense activity – or also known as simple day to day mom duties. Available from R119.99.
Lather her up
Let mom follow this with Wintergreen’s Magnesium Lotion, with added Vitamin E oil and Shea butter to hydrate the skin and improve its appearance, keeping it toned and supple, while reducing the effects of ageing and helping to repair sun damage. Available from R229.99.
The Wintergreen Magnesium range is available online on www.wintergreensport.com and at selected Clicks stores nationwide. #BeAtYourBest
