Magnesium is an essential element for a healthy body and is used in over 300 reactions on a daily basis. A fantastic natural relaxant it helps to rid the body of excess tension. Crucial for bone health magnesium encourages the body to absorb calcium which could otherwise, over time result in a build-up on soft tissue and muscles, causing them to harden.
A body with the right amount of magnesium will be more supple, will resist fatigue for longer and will better repair itself.
Containing 100% natural ingredients delivering the most naturally pure source of Zechstein Inside® magnesium chloride.
10 sprays deliver a minimum of 150mg (43% RDA) of optimally absorbable elemental magnesium.
Magnesium encourages the body to absorb calcium which could otherwise, over time result in a build-up on soft tissue and muscles, causing them to harden. During Paleolithic times, when our bodies formed into how they are today, the ratio of calcium to magnesium was 1:1. In today’s Western diets it is in excess of 20:1. Our Magnesium Oil Original spray can plug the gaps left by diet.
A clinical trial by Cardiff University showed how well magnesium is absorbed through the skin, feeding every cell. A further study by Watkins & Josling showed that BetterYou Magnesium Oil will elevate cellular magnesium levels up to 5 times faster than traditional tablets or capsules.
The award winning spray contains pharmaceutical grade Zechstein Inside® magnesium chloride. Mined in Northern Holland from a seam one mile below ground, our magnesium chloride has been naturally condensed and purified for over 250 million years. As open water sources contain elevated man-made pollutants and heavy metals, Zechstein Inside® magnesium chloride guarantees the most naturally pure source known.
It is totally ionized for effective absorption and retention by the body. This means this essential mineral is delivered directly into the skin tissue, entering cells immediately, efficiently replacing magnesium lost through sweat and the stresses of modern life.
A universal spray. The unique purity of Magnesium Oil Original spray means that it can be used by everyone. We recommend this spray during pregnancy and nursing, for children and for those following diabetic, coeliac, vegan and vegetarian diets.
BetterYou Magnesium Oil Original Spray is a very versatile spray and can be used on any area of the body to increase the body’s overall magnesium levels.
Our bodies are designed to absorb this essential mineral via healthy grazing of nuts, wholegrain and dark greens, little but often and daily. Unfortunately, as our diet has changed the representation of magnesium within it has dramatically reduced. This is due to not only our diet but also how we produce the foods we eat. To supplement magnesium, however, the practice of little but often still applies. Oral supplementation has some impact but it provides a very slow process of cellular improvement.
For general health we recommend using up to 20 sprays of Magnesium Oil Original spray daily. The easiest way to do this is to make it part of your morning and night time routine.
Spray between five and ten sprays around the body and massage in well. After a shower or bath is a great time to apply as the skin is warm and the pores are open which aids absorption.
This spray is suitable at any age. For children we recommend halving the dosage as their additional daily supplementation need is lower than that of an adult.
A tingling sensation is natural upon first application and is a sign of magnesium deficiency; this will decrease as your magnesium levels increase.
Magnesium Oil Original spray can also be taken orally to reduce plaque build-up and promote healthy gums. Simply apply one or two sprays directly into the mouth just before brushing. It is advised not to swallow as it can have a laxative effect when taken orally.
In Magnesium Oil Original spray you will find a concentrated solution of Zechstein Inside® magnesium chloride (31% magnesium chloride).
We take great pride in sourcing the most bioavailable and natural active ingredients.
100% naturally sourced with no exposure to man-made pollutants.
This has been formulated as an ambient spray and does not require refrigeration.
Proudly British made.
This can happen if the body’s cellular magnesium levels are low. The skin can tingle as the magnesium is sucked through the skin rapidly and as magnesium is a large molecule it can cause this sensation. It is important to remember though that it isn’t an allergic reaction to the magnesium, as it is found naturally within the body and is vital to good health.
Another factor that can influence this reaction is the amount used on one area. We recommend 2-3 sprays in one area and then up to 20 sprays a day. Also if you have dry or broken skin it may heighten the sensation.
This reaction will decrease as your body’s cellular magnesium levels increase.
Transdermal magnesium helps to increase your body’s magnesium levels up to 5 times faster than oral supplementation. To reduce the reaction we recommend the following techniques:-
(1) Apply only 2-3 sprays onto any individual skin area. Massage in well.
(2) Apply after a shower onto wet skin, while pores are open.
(3) Vary the application areas to increase the bodies overall magnesium level.
(4) Little but often is the key. If you just apply one spray that’s fine. Massage it in and wait for a minute or so then try another.
The key is to apply the Magnesium Oil wherever it feels comfortable. The magnesium, once absorbed into the skin, is circulated around the body so there is no direct need to focus just on a single area. However, once your magnesium levels begin to rise you will find areas that were sensitive before are no longer so.
Magnesium Flakes can provide a gentle solution to raising your levels. Added to a bath or foot soak they can provide a lower concentration of the solution that will increase your magnesium levels.
Yes. Magnesium is very important during this time for both mother and baby as babies are born with twice as much magnesium as calcium, this is what makes them so flexible and why their skin is so elastic and soft.
However it is important that during pregnancy you avoid essential oils. MagnesiumOil Joint Spray, MagnesiumOil Recovery Spray and MagnesiumOil Goodnight Spray all contain essential oils. Our pure magnesium products are perfectly suited for during pregnancy. MagnesiumOil Original spray, MagnesiumOil Sensitive spray, Magnesium Flakes, Magnesium Soak, Magnesium Body Butter and Lotion all contain only a pure form of magnesium chloride, which is not only pharmaceutical grade, but is currently the subject of clinical trial at St Mark’s hospital, Harrow, on behalf of the NHS.
There are no restrictions with dosage level of these products during this time.
There are no contraindications with any of our transdermal magnesium products.
Our Magnesium Flakes, Magnesium Oil Original spray and Magnesium Soak are all perfectly safe to ingest. The purity of our source actually makes them all pharmaceutical grade products. They are safe for human consumption and are actually used in organic baby food as an alternative to sodium chloride.
However, as magnesium is a natural relaxant if you take a large dose orally it can have a laxative effect. Using it as a transdermal product means that it avoids processing by the digestive system and so too avoids the laxative effect; therefore you can take larger doses through the skin. We have also found in our trials that transdermal magnesium can increase the body’s magnesium levels up to 5 times faster than oral supplements.
The magnesium chloride is a solution mined in Veendam in the Netherlands. The magnesium chloride is mined from an ancient seabed that has been condensed and purified for over 250 million years. To mine the magnesium chloride spring water is carefully pumped down to dissolve the seam and the solution is simultaneously brought up to the surface. The magnesium chloride concentration is 31%, perfectly stable to avoid recrystalising. The brine solution that is brought to the surface is what is bottled for MagnesiumOil Original spray and Magnesium Soak, nothing is added to it to keep the spray as pure and as universally acceptable as possible.
You do not need to worry about overdosing when using transdermal magnesium. Upper limits are set when using the product orally as it can have a laxative effect as it is a natural relaxant.
Magnesium needs to be in balance with the calcium in your body, ideally in the range of 1:1 or 2:1. A modern Western diet unfortunately favours calcium in the ratio of more than 20 times to one on average, so magnesium supplementation is crucial. Looking at this from a cellular level, cells are surrounded by calcium, for the cell to fire it is flooded with calcium. To return to its relaxed state there must be sufficient magnesium within the cell to assist the process of pumping the calcium out. If the cell is deficient in magnesium it cannot keep all the calcium out and so the cell will continue to fire. Due to our reduced intake of magnesium through diet and our increase in calcium it would be extremely difficult to take too high a dose of magnesium through supplementation.
Another factor is that toxic symptoms from increased magnesium intake are not common because the body eliminates excess amounts unless there are serious problems with kidney function. As Mark Sircus has noted in his book Transdermal Magnesium Therapy, in reality problems only tend to occur when magnesium is given intravenously.
The purest Magnesium Oil is the Original spray. This is suitable for anyone including children and during pregnancy. This spray is purely the magnesium chloride brine as it comes out of the ground. It is called an oil due to its hygroscopic quality meaning it acts like an oil. The Original spray is 31% concentrate in magnesium chloride. 10 sprays delivers a minimum of 150mg (43% RDA) of optimally absorbable elemental magnesium.
The Sensitive spray features the same pure magnesium as the Original, but with a concentration of 15% magnesium chloride, it has been dermatologically tested so that you can be 100% confident that it will be kinder to sensitive skin. 10 sprays delivers a minimum of 150mg (21.5% RDA) of optimally absorbable elemental magnesium.The Goodnight spray also has added essential oils; bergamot, clary sage, grape seed and chamomile. These give off a calming and relaxing aroma to help aid normal restful sleep. Again adding the essential oils brings the magnesium chloride concentration down to 28%. 10 sprays delivers a minimum of 130mg (38% RDA) of optimally absorbable elemental magnesium.
The Recovery spray has added essential oils; black pepper, camphor and lemon oils. These essential oils have a warming effect and so help to increase blood flow and aid cell detox during and after sport. The added essential oils bring the magnesium chloride concentration down to 28%. Every 10 sprays delivers a minimum of 130mg (38% RDA) of optimally absorbable elemental magnesium.
The Joint spray has added wintergreen and menthol oil but also glucosamine to help promote cartilage health.
