One of the best sources for all your magnesium requirements is the Ancient Minerals range of magnesium chloride supplements.
Magnesium chloride is one of the most bioavailable all the types of commercially available magnesium supplements and is generally favoured due to its ease of use.
Ancient Minerals magnesium chloride comes in a variety of user friendly forms depending on your needs.
Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil
Magnesium oil is ideal for those who have GI absorption issues, or poor tolerance to oral supplements due to its topical application.
This means that you simply spray or rub the oil or lotion onto the skin where the magnesium molecules are absorbed directly into the bloodstream and taken into the cells where it is needed most. This bypasses the digestive tract and eliminates common side effects of supplement use such as nausea or diarrhoea.
These amazing topical formulations are also perfect for use directly on tired, sore or cramping muscles for instant relief.
Magnesium is needed by muscle cells in order to relax after contractions. Cramps indicate that there is not enough magnesium in the cells to perform this vital function.

An easy solution is to spray or rub topical magnesium chloride directly onto the affected muscle to prevent or relieve cramps instantly!

Magnesium deficiency has gone rank in the general population. Every organ in your body requires a level of magnesium in order to function properly. The RDI for magnesium ingestion is 320-420mg per day. Unfortunately, it is becoming increasingly difficult to achieve these levels through diet alone due to the depletion of the soil’s magnesium thanks to modern large-scale farming techniques which strip the soil of its major minerals in the quest for higher yields.
People are just not getting enough magnesium to perform more than the most basic of bodily functions.
That means that the majority of the population is running below par.
If you have a diet high in saturated fats, refined sugars, alcohol and caffeine, or have a high stress lifestyle, you are probably going through magnesium faster than you can replace it. If you exercise and sweat a lot, have diabetes or hypertension (high blood pressure) or are taking any prescription pills chances are even you will be magnesium deficient.
Magnesium deficiency can have a huge impact on our lives. The most commonly and simply replaced mineral is one of the macro minerals so the body needs it in large amounts.
Without enough magnesium in the long term, you could be putting yourself at risk of these health conditions:
- Kidney/Gall/Bladder stones
- Heart disease
Magnesium comes in many forms and modes of delivery. Check out this article for a breakdown of the different types:
