ABOUT ANCIENT MINERALS
Ancient Minerals is widely acknowledged as the world’s purest magnesium chloride.
It contains essential elements that no longer exist in ocean water today, and is totally free of any toxic contaminant.
Methods Of Application
Apply directly on the skin. Ancient Minerals magnesium directly on the skin is the most beneficial, efficient and economical.
Apply liberally to large skin areas and allow to soak in. Start slowly and increase day by day. After a shower is best but if this is uncomfortable it may be applied at least 20 minutes before a shower and then washed off.
But It Tingles!!
The ‘TlNGLE” factor only applies to direct body spraying, and yes, we know it can be a tad uncomfortable the first few times you use it.
And, like all things, it is something your body will become accustomed to and it will disappear in a few days as your magnesium level rises.
Of course, it really depends on how sensitive your skin is. lf you know that you have sensitive skin use gel or lotion to begin with. Full strength is 100mg/ml, Gels are around 50 to 65mg/ml and Lotion around 20 to 40mg/ml.
Commonly Asked Questions
Can use it more than once per day? Certainly, for example, you can take a few body sprays in the morning and again before bed.
What is the benefit over oral magnesium? Magnesium supplements taken orally are often poorly absorbed and when taken at larger doses may cause diarrhoea. Transdermally applied to the skin bypasses the digestive system completely and raises levels effectively.
ls magnesium “oil” actually an oil? Magnesium “oil” is a coined term for a highly saturated solution of magnesium chloride in water along with other trace elements, which happens to present itself in an oil-like texture due to its hygroscopic nature (attracts water molecules).
Can I use magnesium oil as a massage oil? Absolutely, in fact the use of magnesium oil/gel in massages melts away those knots and spasms much more efficiently than massage alone, also increasing the absorption of the magnesium as discussed before.
Are there any contraindications? Those people with severe renal (kidney) insufficiency (failure) or very low blood pressure should seek advice from their health care professional first. Otherwise it is completely safe and one cannot overdose.
Will I experience any detox symptoms? You may initially, but this is quite normal. It’s a sign the master mineral magnesium is facilitating essential functions, your body is working better and eliminating unwanted burdens.
