As one of the key nutrients in your body, Magnesium chloride has many uses, some of which includes enhancing the flexibility and strength of human muscles and limbs.

Magnesium is the second largest mineral in our body, and has so many different functions that are vital to our very survival. In the information below, we will use magnesium and mag gel interchangeably as absorption of magnesium through the skin is one of the direct and effective methods to absorb this vital compound.
As a vital compound, magnesium is like the neglected child of minerals. Everyone talks about calcium as it is the largest mineral in our body. However, we need a lot of magnesium to absorb calcium properly. Without it, many of our bodily functions do not work. In fact, near 90% of the world’s population is magnesium deficient, and this is a shocking statistic.
The modern diet is magnesium deficient as our soil has been depleting minerals. Excessive use of fertilizers and genetically modifying our crops have dire consequences to the nutritional value of our food and soil. Fad diets like Paleo avoid vital magnesium sources like grains. Diets high in sugar and simple carbohydrates also put you at risk for magnesium deficiency.
Mag gel makes muscles work properly, allowing calcium to cause muscle contraction and then push calcium out of the muscle cells to allow relaxation. Too much calcium may result in tissue damage such as heart attacks.
ATP (adenosine triphosphate), created in mitochondria, is the main source of energy in our cells. This enzyme needs to bind with magnesium to be biologically active. Fatigue is a common symptom of a magnesium deficient person.
Serotonin, which elevates mood, is dependent on magnesium. Whenever we feel down, applying some mag gel on our heart (this is where most magnesium is stored in our body) will help lift our mood and calm us down.
Mag gel can help prevent muscle tension that can prevent restful sleep. Also, sleep-regulating melatonin pathway production is disturbed when there is not enough magnesium in our body.
Applying mag gel to the soles of our feet before bed each night will help our body relax. Our soles have many meridian points which can increase the speed of reaction and absorption by the body.
Pain, inflammation, muscle spasm, muscle tension and scarring can all be treated with mag gel. It may also help reduce lactic acid build-up that can result in post-exercise pain.
Insufficient magnesium and the relative excess of calcium may cause sustained muscle contraction in any muscle in the body. All of the following musculoskeletal conditions may be improved with the use of mag gel:
Insufficient magnesium and the relative excess of calcium may cause sustained nerve excitation in any nerve cells of the body. Mag gel may alleviate the following nerve disturbances that can occur throughout the body:
Mag gel, which contains magnesium chloride, is a very good way for the body to intake the magnesium we need. The mag gel bypasses our intestines and is absorbed through the tissues in our body. The built-in fail-safe mechanism in our body ensures that we do not keep excessive amounts in our body.
As for supplements, there are many options available, and we recommend that you consult a professional before you take them. Generally, magnesium glycinate is the easiest on the stomach and body. The dosage will also depend on the individual’s needs and condition.
Mg RBC blood test is an effective way to test the level of magnesium in the blood.
The body has a built-in fail-safe mechanism to stop excessive magnesium intake, and that is diarrhea.
Unlike magnesium, calcium does not have the fail-safe mechanism. The body has a natural mechanism to protect the fluid inside the cell from becoming saturated with calcium, which is a magnesium-dependent mechanism that shunts calcium into the mitochondria. However, if too much calcium is taken for too long, the excess calcium in the mitochondria inhibits ATP synthesis. Mitochondrial calcification without intervention of sufficient magnesium may eventually lead to cell death.
We have always been an advocate of absorbing calcium through natural foods. We think that the ideal dietary ratio is 1:1. It is important to note that some foods have a disproportionate amount of calcium like milk (7:1), yogurt (11:1), calcium-fortified orange juice (27:1), so ensure that you have enough magnesium to balance the calcium intake. The ratio also includes our diet, water and supplements. In some cases, it may take twice the amount of magnesium as calcium to undo damage from calcium build-up, medication, stress and consequent inflammation in the body.
