Magnesium for  Pregnancy

Topical magnesium can be a great natural option for treating the aches and pains that can arise during pregnancy, and for supporting deep and restful sleep.

Magnesium is an essential mineral involved in many processes in the body, including nerve function, muscle contraction, and maintaining a healthy heart rhythm.

Magnesium chloride is a mineral supplement that contains magnesium and chloride. This is the form of magnesium that Koa Organics use in all of our magnesium products. Magnesium chloride is used for topical magnesium application (as opposed to taking magnesium tablets). Topical magnesium is a gentle and effective way of boosting magnesium levels and is targeted; you can treat specific problem areas in your body with a magnesium oil (spray) or body butter (cream), which is quickly absorbed as it doesn’t have to take the long journey via the digestive system.

      "I bought this after being recommended it by a friend. An unexpected bonus (aside from easing cramping and restless legs) is that it also works for my swollen feet and ankles! I massage it into the soles of my feet every night and haven’t had swelling since. I’m 7 and a half months pregnant during summer so this feels like a miracle balm. Best purchase of my pregnancy so far!" Rachel T March 6, 2024


      Magnesium for Sleep During Pregnancy

      A good night's sleep is crucial for overall health and well-being and this is especially true during pregnancy when sleep can be more disturbed than usual. Good sleep has multiple physical, mental and emotional health benefits including:

      • Enhanced mood and emotional well-being
      • Boosted immune system
      • Hormone regulation
      • Improved cognitive function
      • Reduced stress levels

          Is Magnesium chloride safe during pregnancy?

          We are not doctors, but can provide some general information. While magnesium is generally considered safe for use during pregnancy, it's important to discuss any supplements or medications with your healthcare provider before taking them. They can consider your specific health situation and advise you on the appropriate use of magnesium chloride or any other supplements. We suggest you avoid introducing magnesium in trimester one.

          It's always best to consult with your healthcare provider or a medical professional for personalised advice regarding your pregnancy. Your healthcare provider will take into account factors such as the recommended daily allowances for magnesium during pregnancy, your current magnesium levels, and any other medications or supplements you may be taking. They can guide you on the appropriate dosage and potential risks or benefits associated with using magnesium chloride during pregnancy.


          Using Koa Organics Topical Magnesium for Pregnancy

          As always, when using a product for the first time, do a small skin test first. Try a spray of Magnesium Oil or dob of Magnesium Body Butter on your wrist first to check for any reactions.

          Remember, every pregnancy is unique, and what may be safe for one person may not be suitable for another. It's always best to consult with a healthcare professional who can provide personalised advice based on your individual circumstances.
