Hey floaters,


I was asked this question twice this week, but in two different ways. One client wanted to know about how much magnesium gets absorbed during a 60 minute float. Another client wanted to know if there's a weight change in your body after a float?


Thanks!

Thanks Mark! Very insightful, the more centers that open up, the more awareness spreads, and more reserach and answers will be available.


Thanks again!

Hi Joey,


Earlier this year, Dr. Mauskop of the New York Headache Center conducted a test on himself at the Aspire Center for Health And Wellness, a center in NYC which offers floatation. Through pre and post float blood tests, he did not find a signifcant change in levels in Mg in his body. That may not be themost appropriate test, but it's one indicator. The caveat is that Dr. Mauskop is not Mg-deficient, so the next logical test is to have one of his patients be tested. There are some lab fees for that, but we intend on supporting that test to see if there are any noticeable results.


Cheers,Mark

With regard to how much Mg is absorbed in a float session there is no one answer for this. The body will absorb different amounts of Mg according to how depleted or not you are. Obviously someone very deplete will obsorb more than someone that is not. It is good to let floaters know that their bodies have a natural process for regulating Mg and it can only absorb to a natural limit. Mg is used in over 325 different functions in the body and daily intake is always needed.


I often get floaters asking if they can overdose by floating too much. Of course I tell them no and the more they float the better.
