    Importance of magnesium

    Magnesium has numerous health benefits, including helping the body support normal function, maintain normal bones and teeth, and healthy functioning of the nervous system.

    Ideal for use on joints and muscles.

    Reapply whenever needed.

    Dosage

    1ml of gel delivers a minimum of 100mg of optimally absorbable elemental magnesium, with a teaspoon providing 500mg.

    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.

      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.
