Why can topical applications of magnesium chloride be so healing?

Topical magnesium is healing by way of the skin, a living, breathing organ with tremendous potential for re-mineralizing the body. The skin has the ability to absorb substances that are then carried by the circulatory system around the body. Ancient Minerals magnesium products penetrate the cells with dramatic results on cell biochemistry, and are inexpensive, safe, and convenient.

Where does Ancient Minerals magnesium come from?

The pristine source for Ancient Minerals magnesium products lies within a deep underground seabed in Northern Europe–nearly two miles beneath the surface—referred to as the Ancient Zechstein Sea. It is extracted from the earth by a process known as solution mining, and it is globally the most coveted source of naturally occurring magnesium chloride in existence.

I experience some tingling when I apply the Ancient Minerals magnesium oil or gel, is this normal?

Some users of magnesium oil and magnesium gel with sensitive skin may experience tingling and/or slight irritation at the site of application due to the high concentration of magnesium chloride. This is completely harmless, and varies based on a number of factors, including how much is applied and where it is applied on the body.

Diluting the magnesium oil 1:1 with pure spring water can reduce this effect, although this is a matter of personal preference. Those who experience this effect also report that the tingling lessens with each subsequent application.

Another option is to choose Ancient Minerals magnesium lotion or magnesium bath flakes, for use in foot soaks and/or full body soaks, which offer a gentler form of transdermal magnesium therapy, for those with extremely sensitive or broken skin.

Will magnesium applied topically produce a laxative effect like oral magnesium supplements?

No, there is little to no potential for a laxative effect. This is a fundamental advantage of using Ancient Minerals magnesium products topically, as your skin can naturally self-regulate the absorption of minerals.

Why are oral magnesium supplements so difficult to absorb for most people?

There are two primary reasons:

  1. Meaningful quantities of magnesium from dietary supplements have a tendency to create a laxative effect in the majority of users. This reduces transit time through the gastrointestinal tract and decreases overall absorption.
  2. When large quantities of magnesium are taken in a single dose, a smaller overall percentage of magnesium is absorbed.

Should I continue using magnesium supplements orally if I am also using Ancient Minerals topically?

This is a matter of personal choice, often dependent on how well or how poorly each individual tolerates oral supplements.

Ancient Minerals topical magnesium represents a welcome alternative:

  • For those who prefer to avoid the inconvenience of taking pills.
  • For those who experience loose stools, diarrhea or GI upset when taking oral supplements

For those who do have limited tolerance, Ancient Minerals provides much needed additional magnesium without side effects.

Do I need to shower or rinse the magnesium off after using it?

Rinsing off magnesium oil or magnesium gel after use is a matter of personal preference, and depends on how much you apply and where it is applied on the body. Typically, the more magnesium oil or gel used per application, the higher likelihood you may prefer to rinse it off. In roughly twenty minutes your skin can take full advantage of topically applied magnesium, and it may be safely removed at that point. Keep in mind, also, that Ancient Minerals magnesium gel is designed not to be fully absorbed into the skin, so rinsing off after applying is a fairly common practice.

Are there any precautions for using Ancient Minerals magnesium products?

Avoid using Ancient Minerals magnesium gel, magnesium lotion or magnesium oil near mucus membranes such as the eyes and nose, which can cause some irritation.

In addition, though applying the magnesium oil and/or gel to broken skin or wounds can be highly therapeutic and cleansing, the high concentration of magnesium salts may cause discomfort. If you are using Ancient Minerals on broken skin or lesions (i.e. psoriasis, eczema, acne, etc.) it is strongly advised to begin with magnesium baths until the skin had a chance to start healing and become less sensitive to the higher concentration of magnesium chloride in the oil and gel.

Is there a maximum daily limit for using Ancient Minerals topically?

No. The skin has a unique ability to self-regulate absorption, and therefore overuse is of little concern.

Are Ancient Minerals magnesium products safe to use with children?

Most definitely! Ancient Minerals magnesium baths are the preferred application by most parents, and have been used with great success on children as young as 6 months old. They are not only safe, but also highly therapeutic and can calm even the most restless young ones.

I have heard that Ancient Minerals is beneficial for skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema?

This is correct. Ancient Minerals magnesium products are highly therapeutic and healing to skin conditions such as:

  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema
  • Dermatitis
  • Acne
  • Poison oak, etc.

Topically applied magnesium chloride enhances skin barrier function, decreases inflammation, speeds wound healing, and augments skin cell hydration. However, if you have broken skin or a large portion of your body is affected, it is advised to begin your healing regimen with magnesium baths until the skin has had a chance to start healing and become less sensitive to the high concentration of magnesium salts in the magnesium gel, magnesium lotion and magnesium oil.

Is Ancient Minerals topical magnesium beneficial for detoxification?

Magnesium is not only beneficial, but also essential! The body utilizes alkaline minerals such as magnesium to process cellular debris and counteract elevated uric acid production when combating a detox reaction. In addition, if there is not an adequate amount of magnesium for combating the detox reaction, it will remove the magnesium from the bones and body for this purpose.

Studies have shown that magnesium is one of the most commonly deficient nutrients in the chemically toxic individual. People who tend to retain chemical and heavy metal toxins were observed to excrete a high amount of magnesium in their urine, and have problems maintaining adequate magnesium levels. Most importantly, magnesium shields our cells from heavy metals such as aluminum, mercury, lead, cadmium, beryllium and nickel, which explains why we so desperately need magnesium for heavy metal detoxification.

Magnesium, for the most part, is indispensable for the survival of our cells, but takes on additional significance in the age of toxicity where our systems are overrun on a daily basis with heavy metals.

There is escalating evidence that low levels of magnesium plays a role in the deposition of heavy metals that may have accumulated in brain tissue. In fact, the cause and solution of numerous physical maladies can be as easy as correcting a magnesium deficiency. In addition, many of the difficulties with mercury chelation can be reduced when the subject is administered sufficient magnesium. Most information associated with chelation will tell you that chelating wastes minerals. Yet very little investigation has been done into the critical mineral whose loss cannot be tolerated without unacceptable risk.

Magnesium is vital for phase one detoxification and, along with other minerals such as zinc, dislodges toxic heavy metals from the body. The bottom line is that magnesium is a fundamental factor in the natural self-cleansing and detoxification responses of the body.

According to Doctor Frederica P. Perera, Professor of Environmental Health Sciences and Director of the Columbia Center for Children’s Environmental Health, there is a 500-fold difference in the ability of each person to detoxify the same exact toxin. One of the main indicators is each individual’s level of magnesium. For these reasons, the use of Ancient Minerals magnesium oil, magnesium gel, magnesium lotion, and magnesium flakes, provides the user with a foundational support system for safe and efficient detox.
