TMHS 109: Smarter Supplementation and Unorthodox Ways to Upgrade Your Health with Ian Clark

Nutrition isn’t just about what you eat.

Sure, the food you eat gives you nourishment, but the things you drink, the things you put on your skin, the sunlight you receive, the movement you engage in, and many other factors all add to how you “feed” yourself on a daily basis.

Recently we’ve discovered in science that one of the the most critical nutrients for human health is bioavailable magnesium. We’ve also discovered that the best way to get it is not by eating common foods or oral supplementation.

Magnesium is responsible for over 300 biochemical processes within the human body. That means that there are over 300 things that your body can’t do, or can’t do sufficiently, when you’re deficient in this key mineral.

The big problem is, upwards of 80 percent of the population is deficient in magnesium. And, according to our guest, upwards of 100 percent of people are deficient if they are not actively doing things to get their magnesium levels up.

Our guest today is Ian Clark, and he is one of the foremost experts in the world on magnesium, as well as many other things that create optimal health for the human body.

Ian has impacted my life personally in a powerful way. Since the very first time I used the magnesium product he pioneered many years ago, I’ve been using it almost every day since. It travels with me, it’s by my bedside, and it has given me noticeable benefits that I would rather not live without :).

Today you’re going to learn the inside scoop about magnesium supplementation, and it just might surprise you like it did me so many years ago. You’re also going to learn about a superfood that might possibly be the most potent, complete source of nutrition in the world. Let’s go!

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • Why understanding epigenetics is the real key to avoiding chronic illnesses.
  • Why magnesium might be the most important mineral for your health.
  • What incredible functions magnesium has in your body.
  • How ATP – the energy currency of the human body – relies on magnesium.
  • What problems may arise by taking oral magnesium supplements (you need to know this!)
  • Why magnesium is so important for great sleep quality.
  • The shocking facts about marine phytoplankton.
  • The surprising nutrient profile found in marine phytoplankton.
  • Why I don’t use a multivitamin.
  • How Oceans Alive marine phytoplankton is actually ALIVE.

  1. I tried the Ease magnesium spray after listening to this podcast and It’s been a game changer for my sleep. I’ve really been struggling to get 7-8 hours. After the second night trying it I slept through the entire night! No trips to the bathroom – unheard of for this 63 year old. And the good results have continued. I was so impressed with this product I bought the Oceans Alive product as well. For those asking I use to just before bed. I spray 30 times on my body, let dry and I’m ready to sleep. The whole process takes less than 5 minutes.

  2. I am obsessed with your podcast Shawn! What an inspiration and wealth of knowledge you are for people who have a passion for health and fitness! I am a nurse and a personal trainer… the information about sleep, nutrition, fitness, and supplementation I have learned on your show has helped me personally and allowed me to help clients and patients as well! Thank you, thank you! Keep up the great work!!

  3. So How do you use the Ease Mg product? I’ve sprayed it on sore muscles and it’s helped but how else have people used it? Like where to spray for deeper sleep wrists? Didn’t see any info on how to use it when it came to me nor on the web link it’s just got offers and shopping info not usage suggestions or other details.

  4. Hello,

    Love all the content on this podcast. I would love to try this and friends have been telling me to be careful with Magnesium because it can be problematic for the heart. How can you tell how much of the spray you can use or should use? And could this be problematic?


  5. Great podcast and really excited to try this product! I’m really interested in trying this out on my clients, multiple of which are not getting sleep and seem to be insomniacs

    1. Awesome, Nick! Make sure to let me know how what kind of results you see.

  6. I can honestly say I’ve noticed a big difference in my sleep quality after starting to rub magnesium oil on my skin before bed. I feel that I get into deeper stages of sleep and wake up feeling refreshed. I definitely recommend it to everyone!

  7. i just listened to this podcast and wondering if I can still get 10% off the oceans alive phytoplankton, I’m dying to try it??!!!

    1. Dean, definitely! It will take the extra 10% off in the shopping cart. Thanks for listening my man!

  8. Hi love your podcast, extremely enlightening. I do have some questions to ask.
