I recently had the chance to try Ancient Minerals Magnesium Gel Plus. It's an amazing product that contains "magnesium oil" a concentrated, ultra pure form of magnesium chloride with other trace elements that increases your magnesium levels through your skin. But before I share my experience with the Natural Health Remedy Magnesium Gel let's have a look at why this mineral is so important.
The mineral magnesium is needed for over 300 hundred different reactions in the body and is one of the most common deficiencies in the Western world. I can vouch for the fact that it is notoriously hard to increase magnesium levels in the cells with oral magnesium supplements. So, I was excited to learn that the Ancient Minerals range of Magnesium products offers a completely new way of boosting magnesium levels.
Many health problems associated with magnesium deficiency
Low levels of magnesium have been associated with a long list of health problems - heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, chronic fatigue, general lack of energy, fibromyalgia, premenstrual syndrome, asthma, tight or twitching muscles, restless legs, chronic pain, back ache, constipation, migraine, osteoporosis, irritability and insomnia.
As magnesium is involved in the production of energy in every cell of the body there is no organ or system that is not affected by a deficiency. Lack of magnesium has a huge impact on the ability of the dells to detoxify and cleanse themselves. It helps protect you against the the toxic metals aluminum, mercury lead and cadmium.
The standard Western diet of processed foods high in sugar, salt and fat contributes to and worsens magnesium deficiency. And taking calcium tablets without magnesium can interfere with its absorption.
Magnesium absorption through the skin.
Ancient Minerals Magnesium Gel Plus contains magnesium chloride one of the best absorbed forms of the mineral. One problem with taking magnesium supplements orally is that many things affect its absorption and most forms of magnesium in supplements have a laxative effect on the bowel so taking large doses will result in diarrhea.
Magnesium oil and Gel offers a completely new way to deliver magnesium through the skin straight into the blood that completely bypasses these problems. It is one of the greatest discoveries in Natural Health treatment for a whole range of health problems. Not only is it well absorbed into the blood but it increases the magnesium levels within the cells where 99% of the body's magnesium is found.
I only use natural and toxin free product on my skin so I was pleased to see that the magnesium chloride is the purest in the world and obtained from the unpolluted Ancient Zechstein Seabed in Europe. Magnesium Gel Plus also contains organic biologically-active Aloe Vera extract which has anti-inflammatory and skin healing effects.
Magnesium Gel cures my muscle stiffness
The gel has a silken consistency and I found it ideal to massage into the skin. I have had some stiffness in the muscles around my hips (probably as a result of too much sitting at my computer!) so I decided to massage the gel into my hip muscles and legs every morning. After a few days I noticed they were much less stiff and after using it every day for 4 weeks the stiffness and also the soreness I had in the muscle on the outside of my shin has completely gone.
Magnesium Oil increases intracellular magnesium
One study on the use of this transdermal magnesium chloride showed that 12 people out of 16 with low magnesium levels had substantial increases in their intracellular magnesium levels. Many doctors only measure the magnesium in blood serum but this does not give any information about the levels inside the cells where the magnesium functions. It is important to get a test (usually a red blood cell magnesium test) that measures the levels inside the cells if you want to check your levels.
By restoring the levels of magnesium in your cells through transdermal Ancient Minerals Magnesium Gel you can improve many chronic health problems caused by deficiency. Your energy and mood can improve, your bones can become strong, your muscles can relax, your sleep can be better and any skin problems can vanish.

This is interesting about the mg gel. I've never heard of the gel. I do use mg oil for if I have a muscle strain or my feet or tired, I apply mg oil directly to my strain and it goes away in just a few seconds. But I take a certain mg supplement that is mg malate (malic acid). It also has a little bit of B6 and Folic Acid, and it's a time-release supplement. It's great, and it doesn't have the diarrhea effect because of it's sustain release formula.
But I may have to also check out the gel. It might be easier to apply than the oil.
