Frequently asked questions
What is magnesium oil?
Magnesium oil facilitates transdermal delivery (through the skin) of magnesium chloride. It is well documented that most of the magnesium in oral capsule supplements is lost in the digestive system or eliminated by the body, not reaching the cells that need it. Our easy to use spray means that you can apply magnesium straight to tired muscles, sore joints or to your stomach for a sound sleep.
