Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. Magnesium deficiency has been linked with many health conditions; among them diabetes, asthma, allergies, arthritis, kidney stones, migraines and more.
Foods high in magnesium include nuts, seeds, spinach, yogurt, wheat germ and whole grains - but few of us eat enough of these to ensure an adequate magnesium intake of 400 mg/day. Intensive agriculture has depleted the soil of magnesium, and NPK fertilisers just don’t contain any; so it’s not surprising that many people on a Western diet are magnesium deficient. Oral supplementation of magnesium can cause stomach upset and that’s why trans-dermal (through the skin) delivery of magnesium has become the treatment of choice. It’s gentle on the stomach, easy to apply, readily and safely absorbed, and the body will simply take what it needs.
- Spray onto affected areas and rub in (though not an oil, the solution has an oily feel).
- One teaspoon (5ml) provides approx 315mg of elemental Magnesium.
- Suitable as as a massage oil; relaxes tired or sore muscles quickly and effectively.
- Suitable as as a mouth wash/ oral spray; disinfects the oral cavity and remineralises teeth and gums.
- Magnesium should not be used by people with kidney problems without medical supervision.
- Most people will experience a mild stinging sensation when applying the oil (this usually goes away after a few minutes).
- If you are allergic to sulfur antibiotics or sulfites, consult with your health care professional before use.
A saturated solution of ultra-pure water, pharmaceutical grade magnesium chloride, MSM (methylsulfonymethane) and mineral-rich Kalahari crystal salt.
22 out of 25 people would recommend this product10/11/2018, By CTo be honest, I was hoping for a little more “wow, instant relief” but didn’t really find that. A small improvement sometimes, but mostly it just stings my hands and the result isn’t even worth that. It also doesn’t feel nice to rub in, but the fact that it is natural is appealing, so I will finish it but sadly, don’t intend to buy it again. Would be better if it packed more punch and was in a balm form.17/10/2018, By Sharifa@Delano, this product is not for internal use. Its fantastic for muscle cramps. Will have to give it a try as a natural deodorant!15/10/2018, By GillianI use this for after gym stiffness and soreness. It works really well. Would definitely recommend it.08/10/2018, By TarynI haven't yet used this for muscle cramps etc. but I've used it as a deodorant and it's working great.11/07/2018, By TaniaI will never go without this product again. First time I bought it and I love it. We spray 2 times into our hands and rhen rub on sore muscles. I also rubbed it, out of desperation, onto my winter toes that pain so much, and it took that pain sting away, which helps alot! I will definitely recommend this!04/06/2018, By LarisaJust remember to read the instructions - spray in your hand and then apply, takes away some of the sting. Instant relief from muscle cramps and tenderness. Magnesium is so important for so many functions in the body - great way to get an extra boost!29/05/2018, By AndreaI love this oil. This is a product I can't go without. Helps so much with menopause. The other reviews are right. It is a fantastic deodorant. Just don't use it straight after shaving.19/05/2018, By SadieI used this as an emergency under my arms when my new vegan deodorant just wasn't working and was staining my clothes. This spray works so well as deodorant! It keeps the smell away for the whole day without staining clothes at all. I don't experience any tingling when I use it. It also helps me to sleep if I rub it on my body and feet at night before bed.30/04/2018, By HHmm, the stickiness is really unpleasant! Quite pronounced. And it is messy to have to apply so much of a thin fluid (which stains fabric). Not used it long enough to see if it helps hypertension, but I do think it has relaxation effects.14/04/2018, By JaneFI struggled with really intense and unpleasant nightly calf & foot cramps while pregnant. Nothing seemed to help. I tried more water, bananas, supplements (including magnesium) and they still persisted. I bought this and have used it for a few days and have not had a single cramp again since! And a bonus is that my calves are now super soft too, and not dry like they were before. I am loving it!06/04/2018, By JayneRead online that this miracle oil helps with a host of things, from hair loss to varicose veins. Hoping to see some good results. Thus far definitely helping with muscle spasms.08/03/2018, By DelanoWow! I thought my mouth was about to be eaten away. Rather strong I would say. But if it works...why not27/02/2018, By Nickused it on my stiff neck and within seconds it feels better and relaxed31/01/2018, By ZanahStings a bit on a application. Hands need to be washed after application, but overall effective and handy.30/01/2018, By WafiekaDoes anyone know if this is pregnancy safe?12/11/2017, By AGI have been using magnesium oil for a few months now and found it has many benefits. It definitely causes a transient uncomfortable, stinging feeling, but it is worth it. I mostly use it on my legs after a shower as I find this is the least sensitive area. Benefits include relief from sore muscles and joints, improved sleep and healthier skin. With regular use it helps clear up my keratosis pilaris and has reduced hyperpigmentation. It is an effective natural deodorant - though, don't use it on freshly shaved pits! It does feel a bit oily on the skin, especially if you use too much. A light application ensures the skin is not left feeling tacky. Also, if too much is used it can dry out the skin and leave it ashy. Tip: you cannot apply any lotions/gels and Mg oil at the same time as the salts kind of dissolve the lotion and leave a bit of a mess.06/11/2017, By StarryeyedEasy to apply and it works fast. It does tingle a little on my skin for a little while but that subsides after about 5 minutes. I carry it with me wherever I go. My husband cannot use it in full strength as he has a very sensitive skin and said it felt like bad sunburn. I will dilute it a little for him next time.13/10/2017, By TraceyI wanted to keep using this but my skin broke out. (sigh)02/10/2017, By RyanGreat product. Works fast too.12/09/2017, By IvanaI started using magnesium oil instead of magnesium supplements and i am so glad i did. I have bad cramps in my legs, especially when i swim, so a friend recommended i try this oil. Not just that my cramps stopped, but i feel like my energy level is gone up after using this product. I apply it after shower.12/08/2017, By MoniqueReally easy to apply, i haven't used it for a specific issue, just as a general magnesium supplement. You do need to wash your hands after applying though because it feels...not clean, you can feel it on your hands. I also do take quite a variety of other supplements via mouth already, so it's nice to have one that i can apply on my body instead of another one to drink :)01/07/2017, By MelThough I have only used this product for a couple of weeks, it has made a huge difference to my aching feet. Easy to use, no side effects and seriously good value for money.12/06/2017, By HelenIf you suffer from cramp you must definitely give this transdermal spray a try. A daily spray after your bath and then if you are having cramp at night rub some on the area and it will clear in a few moments. Wonderful stuff I haven't had cramp for months and wouldn't be without it.05/06/2017, By Nickiinteresting product, can use it as a deodrant
burns if you use it in sensitive areas so avoid eyes
07/11/2015, By MarieThe magnesium oil is easy to apply and has been working really well for my recurring neck stiffness. Despite being oily on my hands (I have to wash them after application) it absorbs quickly into my legs and arms. I would buy this product again.
