MagnesiumOil Recovery Spray

Training and recovery aid

£12.20

Magnesium is an essential element for a healthy body and is used in over 300 reactions on a daily basis. One of its greatest uses is for sport. Magnesium is vital for optimal muscle contraction, skeletal strength, energy production and assists in sustaining the high oxygen consumption necessary for athletic performance.

MagnesiumOil Recovery Spray combines essential magnesium with Camphor, Black Pepper and Lemon Oils to aid training and speed recovery.

Containing 100% natural ingredients, delivering the most naturally pure source of Zechstein Inside® magnesium chloride. 

10 sprays deliver a minimum of 130mg (38% RDA) of optimally absorbable elemental magnesium.

  • Why MagnesiumOil Recovery Spray?

    MagnesiumOil Recovery Spray efficiently replaces magnesium lost through sweat and the increased metabolism of exercise regimes. Magnesium  is the single most important mineral to sports nutrition that no serious athlete can afford to overlook.

    An athlete with sufficient cellular magnesium will sleep better, recover quicker and resist fatigue for longer. 

    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 Recovery 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™ MagnesiumOil will elevate cellular magnesium levels up to 5 times faster than traditional tablets or capsules.

    The award winning spray contains 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 the essential mineral is delivered directly into the skin tissue, entering cells immediately, efficiently replacing magnesium lost through sweat.

  • Directions

    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.

    BetterYou™ MagnesiumOil Recovery Spray can be applied to any area of the body. It is perfect for use around your training program and can be tailored to work with your specific needs. Try using it at different stages of your training…  

    Warm up - Apply a few sprays to aid flexibility and prevent muscle tightness.

    Mid training – Re-apply to replenish magnesium levels, ensuring optimum performance and energy levels are maintained throughout the session.

    Post training - Apply to muscles to aid recovery and achieve normalised muscle function, reduced stiffness and restore healthy magnesium levels.

    MagnesiumOil Recovery Spray is suitable from 12 years of age, for children under 12 we recommend MagnesiumOil Original Spray which does not contain essential oils. For the same reasons, we also recommend Magnesium Oil Original Spray for during pregnancy and nursing.

    A tingling sensation is natural upon first application and is a sign of magnesium deficiency; this will decrease as your magnesium levels increase.

    MagnesiumOil Recovery Spray can be used in conjunction with BetterYou™ Magnesium Flakes. For more information on sports usage guidelines please click here.

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

    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.

    Can I use transdermal magnesium during pregnancy?

    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 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.

    I take medication, are there any contraindications?

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

    What is the source of the magnesium chloride hexahydrate?

    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.

    Can I overdose on magnesium?

    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.

    What is the difference between the five MagnesiumOil sprays?

    The purest MagnesiumOil 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.
