A commonly overlooked yet vital nutrient, magnesium is crucial for healthy bones as it makes up part of the skeleton’s framework. Its presence in every one of our body’s cells is essential, as it’s responsible for over 300 different actions in the body.
Modern diet and pressured lifestyles have made magnesium a drastically less abundant mineral in our bodies, with levels significantly lower than anything experienced before.
Magnesium is an important nutrient that works to support
Boosting magnesium levels with supplements ensures you maintain a healthy, balanced body—however, traditional forms of magnesium supplementation can prove inconsistent in delivering active levels of magnesium into the body.

BetterYou’s magnesium products provide a fast, effective method of supplementing magnesium levels compared to other methods (such as oral magnesium supplements).
Transdermal magnesium (also called topical magnesium) has—through a growing number of trials and studies—proven to be more effective than oral supplements such as tablets and capsules in delivering magnesium to the body.
Applied directly to the skin, the magnesium enters the body quickly, bypassing the digestive system where many nutrients, including magnesium, are poorly absorbed.
Pioneered by BetterYou over 12 years ago, transdermal application (application through the skin) provides an effective method of increasing magnesium levels.
Apply directly to the skin and massage in well to stimulate absorption.
Magnesium is quickly absorbed into the epidermis.
The body uses magnesium to support over 300 enzymatic actions.
At BetterYou, we use only Zechstein magnesium chloride, a natural source of mineral salts found deep inside the Earth’s crust. It has been protected from man-made pollutants for over 250 million years, ensuring quality and purity.
We chemically analyse every batch we mine and a certificate to demonstrate this accompanies every product we bottle. Our stringent testing ensures every product contains only our purest magnesium chloride hexahydrate.
At BetterYou, we subject every product to exacting quality checks to ensure that they deliver everything you expect them to. An ISO-accredited laboratory tests every batch of transdermal magnesium we produce, with many products carrying the ‘Informed Sport’ accreditation to support professional and aspiring athletes.
We remain completely committed to developing health supplements of exceptional quality, with research and testing underpinning everything we stand for. This gives our customers complete peace of mind that our magnesium products provide exactly what we developed them to deliver—every time.
BetterYou is at the forefront of research into transdermal magnesium absorption and application and invests heavily in magnesium-based trials each year, partnering with some of the world’s best universities and hospitals.
We’ve been working with Dr Jeremy Nightingale and his team at St Mark’s Hospital, London, for a number of years. This year will see the completion of the world’s first clinical study investigating transdermal magnesium as an alternative to IV infusions and subcutaneous injections for patients with short bowel stomas.
Dr Charles Heard and his team at Cardiff University were instrumental in the development of our transdermal magnesium range and he continues to absorption-test every new line product, providing absolute confidence in the efficacy of our formulations.
Transdermal magnesium comes in a range of formats suitable for different applications and preferences. Some products combine minerals magnesium works well with, such as magnesium and calcium or magnesium and essential oils.
We pride ourselves on creating effective, scientifically proven products that support our customers’ lifestyles and it’s incredibly rewarding to receive industry and consumer accolades.
Awards have never driven us, but it’s wonderful to see the positive reactions from our customers and peers and know they understand and appreciate what we do.
