Whether you just finished a workout or slept in a funny position, having sore muscles or knots can really put a cramp in your day. We are constantly on the lookout for solutions to tight muscles. Currently trending in the all-natural wellness world as a treatment for soreness is magnesium oil.
According to the World Health Organization, 40 percent of American adults are low in magnesium. Spraying or rubbing on magnesium oil is one way to up your intake. Some of the benefits of using the oil as touted by magnesium enthusiasts are that it helps to increase energy, relieve muscle aches, improve heart health and decrease anxiety.
