Did You Know Magnesium Can Improve Body Odour?

I created Devinely Fresh Natural Deodorant out of a need to find an effective natural deodorant for sensitive skin. Most natural deodorants contain baking soda as their active ingredient. The problem with this is that baking soda has a high pH level and can be very irritating to most underarms after a period of time (like mine).

When creating my Devinely Fresh Natural Deodorant, I was researching about underarms, body odour and ingredients that could be used instead of baking soda. Through this research, I discovered that body odour is often caused by a magnesium deficiency. This discovery is the reason why I use Magnesium as the active ingredient in Devinely Fresh.

However, did you know that taking Magnesium internally can dramatically decrease body odour for a lot of people? Magnesium is responsible for over 350 biochemical reactions in the body, and is necessary for helping with anxiety, high blood pressure, poor sleep quality, muscle repair, hormonal headaches… the list goes on (and on).

I have been taking magnesium internally for some hormonal headaches that I was getting (they’re gone now), and since taking it, I can now go days without needing deodorant at all (although I still choose not to take that risk). With this being said, a clean diet is also essential in combination because a diet high processed foods, excess protein and unhealthy fats can create toxicity in the body, also leading to body odour.

If you experience body odour and find yourself a little smelly, even after the detox phase of starting natural deodorant, I recommend asking your local health food store about a magnesium supplement.
