Concentrated solution of ancient Zechstein Inside Magnesium Chloride (30%), Hydroxyl propyl starch phosphate, 100% natural magnesium source, officially approved by the vegetarian society.
What is the source of the magnesium chloride?
The magnesium chloride Better You use is a solution mined in Veendam in the Netherlands. It is mined from an ancient seabed that has been condensed and purified for over 250 million years. To mine the magnesium chloride, spring water is carefully pumped down to dissolve the seam and the solution is brought up to the surface. This solution is the foundation of the Better You Magnesium products.
Is magnesium safe to take orally?
Better You's magnesium supplements have been developed to be applied directly to the skin, so we do not recommend taking them orally.
I take medication, are there any contraindications?
There are no contraindications with any of the Better You transdermal magnesium products. However, we always recommend speaking to your healthcare professional before starting any dietary supplements if you are on any medications or have any medical conditions.
Can I use transdermal magnesium during pregnancy?
Transdermal magnesium is perfectly safe to use during pregnancy with no restrictions on dosage levels during this time. While some essential oils are advised to be avoid during pregnancy, those included in the Better You products (with the exception of Basil in Mind Flakes) are classified as safe. However, if you have any concerns relating to your own health, please seek the advise of your midwife or healthcare professional before starting any dietary supplements.
Can I overdose on transdermal magnesium?
You do not need to worry about overdosing when using transdermal magnesium. Upper limits are only set when using the product orally, as large doses can have a laxative effect due to it being a natural relaxant. Toxic symptoms from increased magnesium intake are not common as the body eliminates excess amounts, unless there are serious problems with kidney function. However, we always recommend speaking to your healthcare professional before starting any dietary supplements if you are on any medications or have any medical conditions.
The Magnesium Tingle. What is it?
On initial application you may experience a slight tingling sensation. This may indicate low magnesium levels and is the result of the high speed absorption of magnesium through the pores. This will pass with regular use and as absorption commences immediately, skin can be towelled off after massaging in.
