    Importance of magnesium

    Magnesium is responsible for 325 chemical reactions inside the body and helps support calcium absorption, maintenance of normal bones and teeth, normal psychological function, and healthy functioning of the nervous system.

    Magnesium also helps improve rest and recovery by contributing to a reduction in tiredness and fatigue, electrolyte balance and supports normal energy-yielding metabolism.

  • Directions

    How to use

    Spray between five and ten sprays around the body and massage well into the skin to stimulate absorption. After a shower or bath is a great time to apply as the skin is warm and the pores are open which aids absorption.

    Apply anywhere on the body avoiding delicate areas such as the eyes.

    Concentrate on joints, muscles and areas of concern.

    Reapply whenever needed.

    Contains 600 sprays.

    Dosage

    10 sprays delivers 200mg (57% NRV) of optimally absorbable elemental magnesium.

    For children we recommend halving the dosage as their additional daily supplementation need is lower than that of an adult.

    Storage

    Once opened, store at room temperature and out of direct sunlight.

    Keep out of children’s reach.

    Warnings

    For external use only; Avoid contact with eyes; Do not use on damaged or broken skin.

    Do not exceed recommended dosage.

    Supplements should not replace a balanced diet or healthy lifestyle.

    The Magnesium Tingle

    On initial application you may experience a slight tingling sensation. This may indicate low magnesium levels and is the result of the high speed absorption of magnesium through the pores. This will pass with regular use and as absorption commences immediately, skin can be towelled off after massaging in.

  • FAQs
      Why does it tingle when I apply it to my skin?

      The most important fact to remember is that this isn’t an allergic reaction to the magnesium, as it magnesium is naturally found within the body and is vital to good health. This can actually be a sign the body’s cellular magnesium levels are low. This tingling sensation is caused by the magnesium, which is a large molecule being rapidly absorbed through the epidermis.

      Another factor that can influence this reaction is the amount used on one area. We recommend using a small amount per area and increasing gradually. Also if you have dry or broken skin it may heighten the sensation so avoid these areas.

      This reaction will decrease as your body’s cellular magnesium levels increase.

      To reduce the reaction we recommend the following techniques:-

      •  Apply only a small amount to any individual skin area. Massage in well.
      • Apply after a shower onto wet skin, while pores are open.
      • Vary the application areas to increase the bodies overall magnesium level.
      • Little but often is the key. Massage in and wait for a minute or so then try a little more.

      The key is to apply transdermal magnesium 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.

      Magnesium Flakes can provide a gentle solution to raising your levels. Added to a bath or foot bath they can provide a lower concentration of the solution that will still help increase your magnesium levels.

      Can I use transdermal magnesium during pregnancy?

      Transdermal magnesium is perfectly safe to use during pregnancy with no restrictions on dosage levels during this time.

      However, it is important that during pregnancy you avoid essential oils. Magnesium Oil Joint Spray, Magnesium Oil Recovery Spray and Magnesium Oil Goodnight Spray all contain essential oils.

      All our other Magnesium products are suitable during pregnancy and breastfeeding, with a full list of suitable products being found here.

      I take medication, are there any contraindications?

      There are no contraindications with any of our transdermal magnesium products.

      Is magnesium safe to take orally?

      Our Magnesium Flakes, MagnesiumOil Original and Senstive sprays and Magnesium Soak are all a pure concentration of magnesium chloride making them perfectly safe to ingest. The purity of our source means that these products are free from man-made pollutants and safe for human consumption.

      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.

      What is the source of the magnesium chloride hexahydrate?

      The magnesium chloride we use is a solution mined in Veendam in the Netherlands. It 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 brought up to the surface. The magnesium chloride concentration is 31%, perfectly stable to avoid recrystalising. This solution is the foundation of our Magnesium Oil sprays and Magnesium Soak. Nothing is added to it to keep the spray as pure and as universally acceptable as possible.

      Can I overdose on transdermal magnesium?

      You do not need to worry about overdosing when using transdermal magnesium. Upper limits are only set when using the product orally, as large doses can have a laxative effect due to it being a natural relaxant.

      Toxic symptoms from increased magnesium intake are not common as the body eliminates excess amounts, unless there are serious problems with kidney function.

      What is the difference between the five Magnesium Oil sprays?

      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 200mg (57% 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 100mg (28% 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 180mg (51% 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 180mg (51% RDA) of optimally absorbable elemental magnesium.

      The Joint spray has added wintergreen and menthol oil for cooling and calming but also delivers 105mg glucosamine to help promote cartilage health.
