There is a small but growing body of research that shows that magnesium sprays applied to the skin (transdermal supplements) work far better than oral supplements. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Dendy Engelman says that magnesium is absorbed much more effectively through contact with the skin. Dr. Engelman says that topical magnesium is easily absorbed and keeps the skin hydrated and flexible.

The writers at Media Planet Women’s Health quoted Dr. Engelman: “as a board-certified dermatologist, the promise that transdermal magnesium oil holds for safely and effectively aiding in cutaneous ailments is exciting and is a world that has yet to be fully discovered.“
What’s so exciting about it?
According to The Huffington Post “Board-certified dermatologist Joshua Zeichner adds that ‘in lab studies, magnesium, as in magnesium hydroxide or milk of magnesium, was shown to break apart different fats and oils, which can explain its benefit in reducing skin oiliness.’
Dr. Engelman adds that magnesium also aids in alleviating anxiety and improving sleep quality, so ‘it is reasonable to believe that magnesium improves stress-induced skin disorders like acne and rosacea.’ Dr. Engelman supports this claim, saying that some patients report better rest and less stress.”
In addition to benefiting your skin, magnesium is involved in energy production, detoxification and protein synthesis. It keeps your heart beating regularly and your muscles and nervous system working properly. It supports a healthy immune system, regulates blood sugar levels and helps to maintain strong bones and healthy teeth by aiding calcium absorption.
Magnesium Sprays Offer Better Absorption
The writers at ImmuneHealthScience.com note that: “Topical or transdermal types of magnesium supplements are a great option in addition to oral magnesium if you do not tolerate oral magnesium well, if loose stools become a problem, or if there are digestive issues that prevent the absorption of dietary and oral types of magnesium supplements. Topical magnesium is easily absorbed through the skin and is taken up by cells, bypassing the digestive system.”
Oral magnesium supplements are known to have poor absorption rates, and some may cause diarrhea and other gastrointestinal problems in larger doses. One of the big benefits of a magnesium spray is how effectively it is absorbed when it’s sprayed onto the skin. By bypassing the digestive system it goes straight into the bloodstream and is delivered to the cells that need it.
Our transdermal magnesium supplement is a concentrated solution of magnesium chloride hexahydrate that is applied to the skin for maximum absorption.
In another of their articles, the folks at Immunehealthscience.com also noted that: “Magnesium RDA is set at 400 mg a day for men and 320 mg a day for women. Some researchers argue that these RDAs may be insufficient and that 500 mg a day may be needed for optimal health, possibly even more for those who exercise rigorously.”
The case can even be made for increasing your magnesium intake beyond 500 mg a day, up to as much as 1000 mg daily, especially for those who are experiencing severe deficiency symptoms or who are regularly depleting their magnesium levels via their lifestyle or circumstances. For example, drinking alcohol or coffee can both take a toll on your levels of this vital nutrient, and those suffering from stress and anxiety experience a drop in their levels when they experience attacks.
It is important to ensure that your body has the magnesium that it needs to function optimally, so you may need to experiment with dosage until you find the balance that leaves you feeling your best.
Magnesium Deficiency is Behind Many Common Health Issues
Magnesium can be at the heart of many health issues. Supplementing with magnesium may help with:
- Anxiety and Panic Attacks
It’s important for those suffering from anxiety to balance their magnesium levels to help keep their symptoms in check, which might mean they need to increase their intake of magnesium to ensure they have a sufficient supply, in the event that their condition depletes their levels of this calming mineral.
“The idea of using magnesium to treat asthma comes from the fact that people who have asthma often have low levels of magnesium.”
While not a cure, consistent use of magnesium supplements could work to combat symptoms of asthma and reduce the risk of attacks.
“In magnesium deficiency, neuronal requirements for magnesium may not be met, causing neuronal damage which could manifest as depression. Magnesium treatment is hypothesized to be effective in treating major depression resulting from intraneuronal magnesium deficits.“
- Musculoskeletal conditions
“A major mechanism of pain is the excessive stimulation of a brain chemical called “NMDA.” The few medications that help decrease and balance this pain-carrying neurotransmitter have the downside of causing significant side effects. Magnesium seems to settle down NMDA without the toxicity.“

Magnesium Relieves Muscle Pain
Experts recommend using a magnesium spray on larger body parts like the legs, arms, belly and back for a few weeks to see if it works for you. Many people get relief from aches, pains and other magnesium deficiency symptoms within hours or even minutes.
You can use it all over or spray it directly on affected areas and rub it in as needed. This is another benefit of transdermal sprays that you can’t get with oral supplements. Using a spray means that you can directly target sore areas instead of waiting in hopes that an oral supplement will eventually work its way to where you need it.

A Mineral Shortage Is Slowly Draining Your Health and Aging You Faster. Magnesium is that mineral.
Hidden Bio Factor #2: CALCIUM IMBALANCE
This is the factor that shocked me the most when I first learned about it.
You might be able to guess from its name that calcium plays a large role.
And for the most part, you can think of a calcium imbalance as a buildup of calcium in your body.
Which is why if you’re currently taking a calcium supplement or eating foods fortified with calcium (such as milk, cereals or juice) then you’ll want to pay extra special attention to what I’m about to say…
If you or someone you know has ever suffered through the agony of passing a kidney stone, then you have one clear example of calcium imbalance at work.
And right now I want you to focus on that word, “stone”.
Because that’s what calcium imbalance literally does to your cells.
It turns them from supple and flexible… to rigid and hard, like stone. And that causes stiffness and pain.
And no, this isn’t some fairy tale exaggeration.
Hidden Bio Factor #3: DEFICIENCY
Picture for a moment a severe water shortage…
Some area of the country going through a drought, let’s say…
What happens when there’s no rain?
The ground dries up. It cracks and becomes brittle. Grass turns brown. Plants droop and wither.
Things start dying, right?
That’s because the ground MUST maintain a certain level of hydration to keep things alive and flourishing.
And when the rains finally do come down they bring new, vibrant life along with them.
It’s pretty plain to see…Now imagine a severe mineral shortage...
The same mineral contained in that amber bottle.
And in this case it’s your body that’s suffering through the drought.
Can you guess what happens when there is a mineral drought affecting your cells?
- Your tissues dry up and harden
- Your joints and bones suffer
- Your mind becomes overwhelmed with stress and thoughts get foggy
- You lose sleep
- You can’t manage stress
- Your energy plummets
- …and you hand over your freedom to aches and pains
This is the perfect picture of accelerated aging.
I don’t know about you, but I have no desire to hop on the express lane to premature aging and an early grave…
So your body MUST maintain certain levels of the critical mineral I’m referring to to keep you from looking and FEELING older than you really are.
So what can you do about it?
How can you stop the mineral shortage?
How can you stop the pain?
It starts with knowing exactly what that mineral is…
Because the good news is:
When this mineral finally does "rain down" on your body it brings long-overdue RELIEF with it…Your starving cells ‘soak up’ that rain… and your body begins a restoration process:
Comfort relieves your pain… your mind eases… a restful peace returns to your sleep… suddenly your thoughts are focused, and a vibrant energy fuels your day…
So What Is This Critical Resoration Mineral?
