What is MagSorb™ and why do we choose to stock it at Yes2Life?
This is the real thing; the most beautifully pure source of transdermal magnesium oil in the world. This important mineral is sourced from the Ancient Zechstein Seabed in Europe. Over 250 million years old, the reserve is carefully extracted from 2000 meters deep in the earth and is of a very high natural energetic state.
What are the benefits of using transdermal magnesium (meaning via the skin) vs. oral magnesium
The number one reason for using magnesium oil instead of tablets is increased uptake. Many oral supplements contain magnesium which is not very bio-available and phytic acid (a substance found in cereal grains) can severely reduce the amount of magnesium absorbed during digestion. High-dose magnesium can also cause an unpleasant laxative effect when taken orally. The highly absorbent skin offers a direct link to the bloodstream which bypasses the digestive system and these common problems. This means that levels of this essential mineral can be boosted faster and more efficiently than ever before. Many customers can feel the difference within days, sometimes even hours!
Is MagSorb™ - Transdermal Magnesium 'Oil' actually oil?
No, 'magnesium oil' is just a term used for highly concentrated magnesium chloride in water. MagSorb™ contains pristine magnesium chloride, water and naturally occurring trace minerals.
I experience a tingling/burning sensation when using MagSorb™. Is this normal?
Yes, people with sensitive skin may experience slight stinging when using magnesium oil on the skin. Don't worry, the effect is harmless and will usually lessen each time it is used. We have noticed that people who are very deficient in magnesium seem to be more likely to experience this discomfort during the first few applications. You can mix MagSorb™ 1:1 with water which will usually reduce any irritation, or try foot and bath soaks (a very relaxing experience!). If you are concerned, please talk to us or our Naturopath, Lea Murphy.
Are there any precautions for using MagSorb?
Be careful around mucous membranes (eyes and nose) as magnesium oil may irritate these areas. If you have a skin condition such as eczema, psoriasis, etc that involves cracked or damaged skin, try MagSorb™ in a bath instead. This will allow the magnesium to work its wonders without the possibility of irritation.
