Magnesium is in high demand in your body when you are under any kind of stress – including when you’re trying to fight off an illness. During cold and flu season, it’s especially important to make sure your levels are topped up, because magnesium increases the efficiency of the white blood cells that eliminate viruses. Magnesium chloride, which can be applied topically three times a day as an oil or dissolved in a bath as flakes, is particularly helpful because the body is able to tolerate higher doses without irritation.
