Magnesium is one of the three minerals in Australia that is deficient in our soils and therefore many of us are already deficient, even if we are eating a perfect wholesome organic diet. (The other two are zinc and selenium). If our soil is deficient in a mineral, so too will our fruit and vegetables become deficient. Magnesium ions are essential to all living cells and are the 11th most abundant element by mass in the human body. Magnesium is needed in the body:
And also reduces anxiety and insomnia, and used in the management of restless leg syndrome, magnesium really is the great relaxer of the mineral kingdom.

Beans, legumes and peas, nuts (especially almonds and cashews) and seeds, whole unrefined grains (especially oatmeal) all contain good sources of magnesium. Magnesium is absorbed from these foods via the small intestine. If the small intestine is coated in toxic sludge or is insufficiently working, due to mal-absorption or Crohn's disease, then absorption will be impaired. Colloidal Magnesium starts being absorbed even before it hits the stomach, let alone the small intestine. As soon as the tiny ions touch the mucosal lining of the mouth, they are being absorbed. The bad news about Colloidal Magnesium is the taste it is simply revolting.
The wonderful thing about Colloidal Magnesium is that it can be taken internally in juice (such as dark grape) or rubbed on the skin externally, as the colloid will be absorbed straight through the epidermal layers into the blood stream. It can sting a little, but only for a few seconds. Try it on yourself first before applying to a child.
