Above traditional massage gels, however, Ancient Minerals delivers superior performance while also delivering high amounts of magnesium into the tissues for both topical and whole body benefits.

Ancient Minerals Magnesium Gel Plus offers a broad range of benefits for skin tissue, and is ideal for addressing skin conditions such as:

Magnesium Gel and Your Health

Magnesium has been placed on the short list of nutrients of concern by the U.S. Department of Health yet many continue to be unaware of the role magnesium and hypomagnesemia play in optimal health. A study by scientists at the , published in the Journal of Nutrition, explains:

Despite the role of magnesium in maintaining health, much of the U.S. population has historically not consumed adequate amounts of magnesium… Magnesium is an essential element that is crucial to hundreds of physiologic processes in humans. Not surprisingly, inadequate intake of magnesium has been linked to various adverse health outcomes, including the development of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and headaches. Furthermore, magnesium is important in bone growth and may play a role in athletic performance.”

For those who suspect magnesium deficiency and hypomagnesemia may play a role in chronic ailments, or those who proactively supplement magnesium to achieve optimal health, there are several types of oral magnesium available. Yet oral magnesium is not tolerated well by certain individuals, and some forms have been shown to have as low as a 4% absorption rate.

Magnesium gel, a form of transdermal magnesium, is unique in that it is:

  • Easily assimilated by the body.
  • Delivered through the skin and therefore directly available to muscular systems that require magnesium to function.
  • Tolerated well, avoiding problems of irritation and loose stools by bypassing the digestive tract

Experts such as Dr. Carolyn Dean, M.D. and naturopathic doctor, hail topical magnesium as an “exciting addition to the magnesium family” due to its universal ease of use and the high bioavailability of its dominant mineral magnesium chloride. She writes:

I realized that many people can’t take oral magnesium because of the laxative effect. Therefore I began researching and then advising people to put supersaturated magnesium chloride on their skin to bypass the intestines, stimulate DHEA production that occurs in the skin, use in baths and foot baths for muscle aches, joint pain, and foot pain and neuropathy.”

While the benefits of aloe to the skin are familiar to many, the application of magnesium chloride to the skin brings a new level to the benefits of healing massage and topical therapies. Topical, transdermal magnesium has shown marked benefits for enhancing skin barrier function, reducing inflammation, speeding wound healing, and augmenting skin cell hydration.
