Studies have suggested that magnesium may be better absorbed through the skin than through ingestion. When applied topically, it can be available on a cellular level almost immediately. This is because a spray bypasses the digestive tract and goes directly to the cells, whereas it can take as long as seven days for the body to digest and make it available to the body when taken orally.
Our Magnesium chloride spray contains a 10% ratio of MSM and 40% magnesium chloride. We added MSM to our spray in order to enhance cell permeability to possibly help with the cell uptake of magnesium, speeding up the whole process. Our magnesium chloride comes from the Dead Sea, known for its’ many health benefits. It is easy to use and free of added chemicals.
How to use:
You may need to unlock the spray mechanism. Look for a rectangular button on the neck of the spray lid, just above the part that screws onto the bottle. When you press the button, it will pop out on the other side. One way locks the bottle, the other way unlocks it. See image >
Use 3-5 spritzes on the body, once a day. Rub into skin.
Stinging may occur at first. If stinging persists, dilute up to a 1:1 ratio with water. You may wish to save some at full strength to use once your skin becomes accustomed.
Once dry, you may wish to wipe off any residue with a damp cloth.
Be patient! Magnesium deficiency did not happen overnight. It can more than 2 months for levels to return to normal.
What’s so important about Magnesium?
It is the fourth most abundant mineral in our bodies. It is crucial for healthy body function, with every organ in the body using it. Magnesium helps make bones strong and is part of the makeup of teeth. It keeps blood pressure normal, the heart and kidneys working, and inflammation down and energy up. It helps regulate calcium, copper, zinc, potassium, Vitamin D, and other nutrients. In all, Magnesium is involved in over 300 different biochemical processes that are vital to your health.
While magnesium is found in foods like leafy greens, nuts, seeds, fish, beans, grains, yogurt, bananas, and dark chocolate, some sources claim that magnesium content in our foods has declined 25-80% since 1950. Many breads and pastas have lost up to 80-95% of the magnesium they once had, due to commercial production processes. Excessive sugar, salt, stress, caffeine, and alcohol all contribute to lowering magnesium in the body. Unfortunately, this describes the average North American diet. No wonder many scientists are now claiming that up to 75% of us are magnesium deficient!
Magnesium has been used to treat pregnant women with preeclampsia, severe toxemia, seizures in children, inflammation of the kidneys, brain functions, heart attacks, and premature babies.
Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency
Agitation / anxiety
Irritability / anger
Headaches / migraines
Nausea / vomiting
Tics / twitches / spasms
Muscle cramps / tension
Restless Leg Syndrome
Brain fog / memory problems
Abnormal heart rhythm
Low blood pressure
Conditions that lead to low magnesium
Other magnesium antagonists
Coffee / tea / soda
Taking acid reflux pills
Diabetes & diabetes medication
High sugar diets
High salt diets
Too much exercise
High dairy diets
Vomiting and diarrhea
Excessive calcium intake*
*High calcium intake leads to low magnesium, whereas high magnesium intake leads to better calcium absorption. Doctors recommend a 1:1 ratio of calcium to magnesium
Cautions: some medicines may interact with magnesium, however no specific interactions are known at this time.

Researchers Starobrat-Hermelin & Kozielec (2004) have shown that children with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) showed improvement in hyperactivity with supplemental Magnesium. Further research (Huss, Völp and Stauss-Grabo, 2010) found these benefits were enhanced further when supplementing with Omega 3 fatty acids.
