Celebrities are known to be health-conscious individuals. With schedules packed with back-to-back agenda, they know they need to take care of their bodies to stay on top of their game.

It's only natural that these stars turn to supplements for a healthy lifestyle. Magnesium is a favorite. 

Meghan Markle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Taylor Swift Love Magnesium

Now, a deficiency in magnesium has prompted celebrities to use their influence to spread the word about this essential mineral. The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, shared in a magazine interview that top on her list of daily supplements is magnesium as it helps her sleep better and quiets her mind.

Gwyneth Paltrow echoes the same sentiment and notes that she travels with magnesium drink powder to help calm the nervous system. She also listed Vitamin C packs to strengthen immunity -- another vitamin which celebs also love for their skin.

Even "Lover" singer Taylor Swift shared what she learned before turning 30, citing magnesium as a supplement she takes for energy and muscle health.

Experts' Take on Magesium

Celebrity dermatologist Dendy Engelman, M.D. also adds $20 magnesium oil to her skincare routine worth tens of thousands. She also bathes in magnesium bath salts, noting that "many of us are depleted" of this mineral that helps with muscle relaxation, easing anxiety and overall better sleep. The facial expert to the stars also emphasizes that magnesium helps with acne, psoriasis and eczema.

So does bathing in magnesium or simply taking magnesium supplements? If so, how does it benefit us? Experts back it up with research, saying that magnesium helps lower blood pressure, alleviate depression, and may even boost exercise performance.

Magnesium is one of the seven essential macro-minerals along with calcium, potassium, sulfur, chloride, sodium and phosphorus. This mineral boosts the efficiency of other vitamins and minerals and works throughout our system from our muscles and nerves to our metabolism and immune system. Other known benefits of magnesium include:

  • Magnesium boosts collagen levels for a moisturized and even tone, as well as keeps wrinkles at bay. It also helps with cellular regeneration and repair. Got problems with acne? Magnesium lowers cortisol, stabilizing hormonal imbalances in our body which, in turn, helps reduce acne.
  • Magnesium promotes better sleep by minimizing feelings of fatigue and tiredness.
  • Magnesium calms the nervous system to minimize the risk of anxiety and depression.
  • Magnesium also minimizes muscle tension, including cramps and spasms after intense workouts. It also offers relief from headaches sans relying on painkillers. This also means if you take magnesium, you can significantly decrease exercise-related injuries.

If you are into high-intensity workouts like Taylor Swift -- who does high-intensity dance cardio and bodyweight exercises -- then you will need to supplement with magnesium. Celebs also shared how magnesium helps with mental health by easing your mind and allowing your body to rest.

So, how do you increase magnesium intake and avoid magnesium deficiency?

As you've seen in our featured image, almonds and dark chocolates are some sources of magnesium. Other magnesium-rich foods include green leafy vegetables like spinach, legumes, nuts, tofu, eggs, seafood and avocado (beauty tip: avocado is Victoria Beckham's secret to glowing skin!)

If you want a stronger body post-workout and luminous celebrity skin to match, take your cue from the stars and supplement your diet with magnesium.
