Magnesium is an important mineral that must be in the body, as you can die without it.
The Power of Magnesium and What It Can Do For You
I used intravenous magnesium in the ER as it was helpful in life-threatening issues such as arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat), intravenous magnesium was used. If a patient felt constipated or needed to be ready for a colonoscopy, milk of magnesia or liquid magnesium citrate, which helps to clean out the bowels.
The Relaxation Mineral
This relaxing mineral is responsible for over 300 enzyme reactions and found in all body tissue. It’s mostly found within your brain, bones, and muscles. In order for cells to take in energy, they must have magnesium as it helps for many chemicals to work, and stabilize membranes in order to relax stiff muscles.
That’s exactly the reason why hospitals utilize magnesium for emergencies and life-threatening problems such as heart failure and seizures.
- Sensitivity to loud noises
- Muscle twitches or cramps
- Anal spasms
- Chronic fatigue
- Kidney stones
- High blood pressure
- Menstrual cramps
- Irritable bladder
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Trouble swallowing
It makes things complicated as magnesium is not absorbed well and is lost from our bodies so easily. In order to take in magnesium, you will need lots of it, with vitamin B6, selenium and vitamin D.
Recently, a scientific review on magnesium found that,“It is highly regrettable that the deficiency of such an inexpensive, low-toxicity nutrient results in diseases that cause incalculable suffering and expense throughout the world.”
Stop Draining Your Body of Magnesium

This is an absolutley amazing find in Hanoi. I always tell people that floating is the perfect practice if your looking to improve your health, inner peace, and general wellbeing - and that is certainly the case at 'float Hanoi' as well! I have been floating regularly for a few years in the US, and I can say that the tanks and facilities here are truly top of the line. Also Minh, one of the owners, was incredibly welcoming and helpful - he even took me to find an ATM machine after my float so i could pay him! Then followed by showing me a gas station so I could fill up my motorbike (Ive only been here two days). 🙂 Float Hanoi exemplifies what selfless service is all about - I feel at home in Hanoi already just from my first experience here (Of course im also relaxed and rejuvinated from the float itself). I bought a package of 5 "one hour" floats, and when those are up, I will be buying a package of 5 "ninety minute" floats. All that said, just do yourself a big favor and give this place a real shot! You wont be at all dossapointed. ????
I recieved a voucher for my birthday and was sceptical about the new experience. I was really impressed with the friendly gentleman who explian the process very well to me in English and make me feel at ease and relaxed. The actual float experience blew me away. I havent been so relaxed after my session and continued the zen feeling well throughout the day. I highly recommend making an appointment and experiencing this wonderful sensory deprivation technique. They also sell CBD oils which ca be used to relax your mind and body. 5 stars is a no brainer.
We tried the couple float room. Each person has her or his own floatation pod. The staff, Duc, is responsible and details the steps and common doubts that we have. It’s relaxing and an interesting experience. It’s like being in a world of your own. Recommended for getting back your inner peace and calm 🙂 TIPS on getting there: make sure you enter the 51 alley.
The last time I floated was back in Bangkok in 2019. My husband and I were regulars at the facility there. The Hanoi float center feels much more “homemade” than the one in Bangkok. Not saying that neither is better than the other; the setting feels very different, which is something to keep in mind. Otherwise, the tanks work the same - the only difference would be that you have the option to pry the tank’s cover open slightly with the ones in BKK but here, it’s either fully close or open, which can be uncomfortable for first-time floaters. Also, if you haven’t meditated for a long time, it can be pretty challenging during the first few sessions as your mind WILL keep wandering. We did the couple floating session for 60 minutes, and we didn’t regret giving it a try. It was nice, dark, and quiet (something you don’t get much from living in Hanoi). The staff understands and speaks English very well. The online reservation was hassle free, and the team will contact you a day before by phone to reconfirm. Note that they are not really responsive on Facebook messenger, so it’s better to call. It’s a straight forward experience, you go in, pay, rinse a bit, float, get out, rinse again, dress up and leave. Nothing to complain about and would personally return.
I had incredible good session although the staff wasn't very welcoming. I had a feeling that the guy was a bit shy but he introduced me to the whole ceremony. Place is good and quite outside of the whole chaos. Prices are reasonable and youve got everything you need.

Eat Foods High in Magnesium
Take Magnesium Supplements
• Some may need a higher dose depending on their health condition.
• Most individuals benefit off of 400 to 1,000 mg a day.
• The most easily absorbable forms are magnesium citrate, glycinate taurate, or aspartate, although magnesium bound to Kreb cycle chelates (malate, succinate, fumarate) are also good.
• Avoid magnesium carbonate, sulfate, gluconate, and oxide. They are poorly absorbed (and the cheapest and most common forms found in supplements).
• Most minerals are best when taken as a team with other minerals in a multi-mineral formula.
