Great information on how Magnesium is absorbed through your skin!
And what is full of Magnesium??? Pumpkin Seed Oil!
Topical magnesium, a method of delivering minerals to the body through the skin, may seem at first mysterious and new, but it’s based on both age-old principles and cutting edge science.
Have you ever used a patch to help you quit smoking, or to alleviate pain? What about Ben Gay? Or how about that expensive skin creme you bought to help give your skin a healthy glow?
If you’ve used or are familiar with any of these products, then you are familiar with the basic concepts behind topical applications of magnesium.
HOW IS TOPICAL MAGNESIUM ABSORBED THROUGH THE SKIN?
The skin, the largest organ of the body, has three primary functions:
When you sweat, for example, you are both controlling your body’s temperature and naturally excreting toxins through your skin. If you can push out toxins, you can pull them in as well. One example of this phenomenon is that fact that a person who regularly uses underarm deodorant containing aluminum will actually show aluminum content in a fecal or urine test.
A Definition of Dermal AbsorptionIn fact, many substances do pass into the body from the outer surface of the skin and into the circulation. To understand how this works, imagine a tightly woven fabric. While from a distance it may appear impervious, at close range it is actually highly porous. It is this porous nature of the skin, with its millions of tiny openings, that allows not only sweat and other toxins to escape, but also enables the absorption of some substances.
The process is known as dermal absorption. Once a substance passes through the outer layers of skin, it passes into the lymph and local vascular (blood vessel) system and soon after into the bloodstream.

Pumpkin Seed Oil...

We need these kind of fats in our diet and the health nutrient content of foods like pumpkin seed oil should generally always come before considerations about calories. Pumpkin seed oil is sensitive to light and heat so keep the bottled oil in the refrigerator. Stored this way, it should last for several months.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a condition that affects 25% of men in their 40's and over 50% of men in their 60's.
BPH is believed to be due to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) promoting proliferation of prostate cells. This results in an enlargement of the prostate gland and can lead to enlarged prostate, and create problems and discomfort when urinating.
The phytosterol beta-sitosterol is found in significant concentrations in pumpkin seed oil and helps block the damaging effects of DHT by inhibiting its conversion from testosterone. Pumpkin seed oil also contains the compound delta-7-sterine that specifically competes with DHT in the prostate and seems to help prevent prostate cell multiplication.
Alongside these two DHT blockers, pumpkin seed oil contains high levels of antioxidant carotenoids, omega-6 and omega 9 fatty acids and zinc, all of which may help reduce a man’s risk of developing BPH.
