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. One to try: Mag-Key from UNI KEY Health.

I take Mag-Key already to help me fall asleep at night. It’s amazing to discover that it is helping my immunity too!
So interesting to learn another benefit of magnesium. I take it when I get a headache, and it really helps.
Muscle cramps used to be a big problem, especially in my feet, during the night. I do take Mag-Key now and it has prevented them. Maybe I’ll start taking one more every night just to help my immunity.
Magnesium really helps my anxiety. Great to know its role in immunity.
I’ve used the magnesium oil for muscle cramps and it works really fast. It’s messy though. I’d like to try this pill form.
