MagneGel™, Designs for Health's transdermal magnesium gel, is a pure, 100% natural solution of magnesium chloride. This primary ingredient comes from high quality magnesium salt derived from the depths of the earth’s 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.
This transdermal delivery system is highly efficient, allowing for rapid assimilation in the body.
Hydroxypropyl Starch Phosphate
Recommended Use: Massage into the arms and/or legs as needed to provide a large area for absorption.
Warning: Avoid direct contact with the eyes and sensitive spots. Do not use on skin right after shaving or it will sting!!!
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.
STORE IN A COOL, DRY PLACE. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
Q: How do I determine dosing levels? A: 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.
