MagneGel Transdermal magnesium gel with unmatched purity and quality.
MagneGel is a pure, 100% natural solution of magnesium chloride, coming from high quality magnesium salt derived from the depths of the earths interior all from the ancient Zechstein Seabed in Europe.
Ultra-pure and untouched by pollutants, this magnesium salt was protected at depths of 5,000-6,500 feet in the Zechstein Seabed for the past 250 million years.
Why Topical Magnesium? This transdermal delivery system is highly efficient, bypassing the problems inherent with oral supplementation ultimately reducing the time needed for assimilation.
This was confirmed by a study involving 30 patients in which intracellular magnesium levels were restored to a normal range within 4-6 weeks using transdermal magnesium chloride.
In this study, using transdermal magnesium chloride, the average increase in intracellular magnesium levels was 31.2% (from a baseline of 31.4 mEq/L to 41.2 mEq/L)

MagneGel, featuring genuine Zechstein Inside magnesium, is simply the purest and most pristine source of natural magnesium salts in the world. It is derived from seawater and, like seawater, after drying on the skin may produce a tingling sensation. This can be alleviated by rinsing with cold fresh water. Leaving on for 30 minutes is recommended to ensure optimal absorption.

Q: How do I determine dosing levels? A: Many prominent researchers feel that the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for magnesium is far too low, and is set at the minimum acceptable level to stave off deficiency symptoms, not at the optimum to ensure good health. According to Dr. Carolyn Dean, MD, a highly respected medical authority on the subject, research over the past 20 years has shown us that even under ideal conditions approximately 300mg of magnesium is required merely to replace daily losses.
However, as a general rule of thumb, an appropriate daily intake of magnesium should be approximately 3-4 mg per pound of bodyweight. For a 200lb male, this would equate to 600mg to 800mg per day. Chronic health complications, emotional and physical stress, physical injury, athletic exertion, alcohol consumption, certain medications and poor lifestyle/dietary choice, all increase your daily magnesium requirements. Women who are pregnant or lactating also have elevated magnesium requirements.
MagneGel delivers approximately 150mg of elemental magnesium per 1/4 teaspoon to the skin. This would equate to roughly the size of a nickel. It is recommended to remove any body lotions, creams, and moisturizers prior to using MagneGel, which can hinder uptake of magnesium ions by the skin.

Great product for spot-treatment of muscle tightness. (I guess you could do broad treatments as well, but it can get a bit messy.) Useful either in combination with or alternative to internal-use forms of magnesium, allowing for localized approach and possibly for some folks reducing the GI complications that can accompany certain magnesium products.
