Magnesium – the miracle mineral needed by every cell in our body – if you buy one supplement, this really should be it!
Magnesium is one of the most important minerals in the body and amazingly 80% of us are thought to be magnesium deficient. Whilst you might eat a balanced diet research shows that magnesium levels are dropping in the food we eat. Genetically modified foodstuffs (GMO) and intense farming together with processed and fast food are all thought to be to blame as well as digestive conditions such as leaky gut and medications fighting chronic diseases because they inhibit the absorption of magnesium by the gut.
Do you suffer with leg cramps? Anxiety? Insomnia? Fatigue? Migraine? Osteoporosis? High Blood Pressure? Type II Diabetes? Magnesium is needed by every cell in our body and the catalogue of destruction that magnesium deficiency leaves also takes its toll on your pelvic floor.
I eat healthily – why should I use a Kegel8 Magnesium supplement? Here at Kegel8 we’re talking Optimum Pelvic Health
Thankfully our life expectancy is increasing but shockingly our ‘healthy’ life expectancy isn’t. We know to have a healthy pelvic floor many of us need to eat less of the wrong food (processed, carbohydrates, and fatty foods especially) and more nutrient dense foods to FEED our bodies – until that happens we recommend supplementing with these vital pelvic floor-friendly supplements. What our researchers have discovered is that a problem with the pelvic floor and pelvic floor problems could be due to a vitamin and mineral deficiency as you’ll see evidenced in clinical papers below.
Kegel8 wants you to have a strong and healthy pelvic floor one that is pain free and fully functional as you navigate the other challenges of getting older. Optimum pelvic floor health together with urinary and colon control boosts our quality of life helping us face the challenges that come our way. To get the balance right and to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles we urge you to look at pelvic floor muscle exercise as just one part of the equation. Your weight, posture, lifestyle, pelvic floor muscle exercise and optimal pelvic floor nutrition are all essential areas to ‘tweak’ to help you stay healthy and in total control. Kegel8’s specialist range of vitamin and mineral supplements have been created to go hand-in-hand with pelvic floor exercises – so that every kegel ‘squeeze and lift’ delivers the most effective results.
By supplementing to make sure your muscles, ligaments and fibres are in the best shape possible nutritionally – you’ll be guaranteed to get the best results. By now, I am sure you’ll know that we ask you to commit to a 12-week programme of pelvic floor exercising to get the best results (which will incidentally last you for years!). Our magnesium supplement comes in a 3 month course to stock you up for a while.
"For any woman with symptoms of pelvic pain and/or constipation, supplementing with magnesium is essential. I was amazed to link my insomnia with a lack of this mineral and after 3 weeks I was back sleeping like a baby!."

Kegel8 recommends you consider supplementing with Magnesium for following reasons:
Consider Magnesium for Pelvic Pain & Vulvodynia ✔
- Magnesium is vital to produce the happy-hormone serotonin. Certain hormone production managed by magnesium works to calm the brain and promote relaxation - sleeplessness and insomnia is an indicator of magnesium deficiency.
- When it is used appropriately to enhance analgesia (pain relief) and muscle relaxation in surgical patients, it can contribute to improvement in the outcome of surgical patients. 
- Many women with vulvodynia lack essential nutrients for the vulvar, vaginal, and pelvic tissues to function optimally. Vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acid, other antioxidants, B vitamin, and magnesium deficiencies commonly show up. 
Consider Magnesium for Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) ✔
- The University of Maryland Medical Center reports that scientific studies suggest magnesium supplements may help to relieve symptoms associated with PMS, particularly: bloating, insomnia, leg swelling, weight gain and breast tenderness.
Consider Magnesium if you have Urge Incontinence (UI) and Overflow Incontinence ✔
- The detrusor muscle is a smooth muscle found in the wall of the bladder. Detrusor overactivity means that this muscle contracts when you don't want it to, this can cause urge incontinence and overflow incontinence. Magnesium decreases the excessive amount of nerve stimulation within the nervous system and supplementing with Magnesium could help to relax the detrusor smooth muscle. A double-blind trial found that women who took 350 mg of magnesium hydroxide (providing 147 mg elemental magnesium) twice daily for four weeks, had better bladder control and fewer symptoms than women who took a placebo. 
Consider Magnesium to treat Constipation and for Pelvic Floor Strengthening ✔
- Constipation is not just uncomfortable, it is responsible for a lot of pelvic organ prolapses too, please do all you can to stop straining. This study indicated magnesium hydroxide to be more efficient than bulk-laxative in treating constipation in elderly long-stay patients. (5) Not only is constipation detrimental for the pelvic floor due to the constant straining to have a bowel movement, but the weight and discomfort of a full bowel resting and dragging on weakened pelvic floor muscles and fascia is also harmful. 
- Magnesium will help constipation! By relaxing muscles and neutralising stomach acid it helps speed the passage of waste through the intestines. Researchers in Tokyo found a significant increase in constipation when they researched 3,800 women with low magnesium levels. (6) Supplementing with magnesium should help you go to the toilet easily, however if it has an adverse laxative effect if the dose is too high which is counterproductive for a healthy pelvic floor. 
Consider Magnesium if your pelvic floor problems make you anxious and cause you stress ✔
- This data supports a relationship between low Magnesium (Mg2+) levels and both anxiety-related behaviour and a modulated stress axis.
