MagnesiumOil Recovery Spray

Supports working muscle, improves performance and speeds recovery.

£12.20

BetterYou™ MagnesiumOil Recovery Spray combines essential magnesium with Camphor, Black Pepper and Lemon Oils to support natural recovery from fatigue and injury, relieve muscle tension and aid skeletal strength.

  • Speeds post-exercise recovery
  • Improves sports performance
  • Reduces the onset of fatigue
  • Superior magnesium chloride quality
  • Endorsed by the Informed Sport initiative

Magnesium is one of the most important minerals in sports nutrition. Massive amounts are lost through sweat and the accelerated metabolism of strenuous exercise.

10 sprays deliver a minimum of 180mg (51% RDA) of optimally absorbable elemental magnesium.

  • Why MagnesiumOil Recovery Spray?

    Magnesium has been shown to help with sleep, elevate testosterone, build muscle, improve insulin sensitivity and increase strength.

    A lack of improved strength from one workout to the next also suggests poor recovery, which may be an indication of magnesium deficiency. A body with the right amount of magnesium will be more supple, will resist fatigue for longer and will better repair itself – Learn more about Magnesium’s role in sport and our work with the Informed Sport programme.

    Camphor, black pepper and lemon oils have been added to help stimulate blood circulation to the area and encourage muscle detoxing.

    How transdermal magnesium supplements work:

    Formulated for topical use and applied directly onto the skin BetterYou™ MagnesiumOil Recovery spray is absorbed in to the highly porous epidermis and through to the blood vessels and muscles beneath. Completely bypassing the digestive system where many nutrients are not absorbed. Transdermal magnesium offers a simple and scientifically proven method of magnesium supplementation far more effective than tablets and capsules.

    Superior magnesium quality

    Containing 100% natural ingredients, delivering the most naturally pure source of 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.

    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.

  • Ingredients

  • 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 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. 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.
