These topical or transdermal forms of Calcium Magnesium by Natural Calm offer alternate ways of boosting your magnesium levels without producing the gastrointestinal side effects associated with some oral supplements. Natural Calm products use a natural form of magnesium sourced from deep seawater which also supplies over 90 other trace minerals not found in lab-produced magnesium chloride.
The multi-purpose Magnesium Chloride Liquid (Oil) can either be used full strength for therapeutic baths to soak the entire body or aching feet, or diluted to apply to specific areas, followed by the application of a hot compress for more intense delivery. Or you can apply the magnesium Spray directly onto your skin as-is, to also reduce the roughness of dry skin. To target tight muscles with a pain-relieving massage, you can use either that Liquid (diluted), or the Gel, or the new emollient Balm, which can also help soothe, moisturize, and protect the skin.
The Magnesium Chloride Liquid has the consistency of an oil to hold on to skin longer; if it is to be applied directly to the skin, it requires dilution. (Please see usage section.)
The Gel and Spray are both meant for immediate topical use and do not need to be diluted. The latter can be slipped into a backpack, purse, or overnight bag, and can help reduce the appearance of rough, dry skin. The gel is created by combining the naturally occurring magnesium chloride with all-natural Amigel, for a consistency ideal for massage which also helps the magnesium get absorbed through the skin. When applied topically, this gel temporarily alleviates patches of rough skin; raises magnesium levels in the body; and soothes tension, pain and aches in muscles. Topical application of this safe and strong mineral is not only one of the fastest ways to replenish internal levels of magnesium, but also improves cell function. This gel is frequently preferred over internal magnesium supplementation for its versatility with no laxative effects.
Similarly, with its artful combination of magnesium chloride, natural coconut oil, raw shea butter and beeswax, the all-natural, fragrance-free MagTherapy Balm can also penetrate the skin to restore healthy magnesium levels and relieve muscle tension better than Epsom salts can, and is also able to soothe the skin, boost its ability to retain moisture, and protect it from the elements. It can be used anywhere to help produce softer skin, or rubbed on problem areas to relieve muscle pain and tension.
