Magnesium Chloride Gel

Magnesium Chloride Gel is a form of topical magnesium that is absorbed quickly through the skin, delivering magnesium directly to cells.

Provides measurable relief from muscle tension, spasms, cramps, aches and pains – and it softens skin!

Use Magnesium Chloride Gel at your massage therapy session, after a workout, a long day hunched over a desk – or anytime you experience symptoms of magnesium deficiency.

Formulated with plant-based Amigel for easy application, Magnesium Chloride Gel is equivalent in strength to our Magnesium Chloride Spray and is half the potency of our Magnesium Chloride Liquid.

magnesium absorbed through the skin is fast and effective

Directions for Use

Suggested Use: Apply directly to the skin and rub into muscles.

Shower or wipe away excess after 20 – 30 minutes, to allow time for the magnesium to fully absorb.

Cautions and Warnings:   For external use only.  Keep away from the eyes.

Ingredients:  Each 1ml of gel contains 225mg of magnesium chloride, equivalent to 60mg of elemental magnesium.

Non-medicinal ingredients: AmigelTM, a 100% natural gelling and stabilizing polysaccharide agent (no petroleum).

Contains no fragrance.

Can you really absorb magnesium through the skin?

Consider the evidence from clinical studies:

  • A transdermal magnesium oil with a 31% magnesium concentration applied to the skin and via a foot bath was found to increase cellular magnesium concentration by 59.7% in 89% of study participants, measured through hair analysis1
  • In a two-week pilot study, blood serum and urinary magnesium concentration significantly increased in a subgroup of non-athletes following the low-dose application of 56 mg of transdermal magnesium cream per day2
  • Intracellular magnesium concentration significantly increased following the application of a transdermal magnesium chlorate spray to the skin for 4 months, measured by epithelial cell and blood serum analysis3

“Last summer I woke up about 5 days in a row with charlie-horses. I went to my physiotherapist who alleviated the problem with massage and he recommended a magnesium supplement. I had tried magnesium supplements before my bowels can’t tolerate magnesium orally. The assistant at the health food store recommended a topical supplement and I found Bolton’s Magnesium Chloride Balm. I rubbed it on my lower legs 3 times the first day, 2 times a day the next couple of days, and once a day for about a week. I was without cramps for several weeks.

The cramps did come back a couple of months later so I started the course of magnesium balm again and I now find that if I use it 2 or 3 times a week I have no recurrence. When I feel any tightness in my lower legs I rub the magnesium balm into them and I’m cramp-free.

I was talking about charlie-horses to a couple of ladies in my fitness class a few months back and mentioned I had found an easy and natural way to deal with them. One lady said she suffers terribly, and nightly, with leg cramps but she cannot take oral magnesium supplements. I explained to her that because topical magnesium supplements go nowhere the gut, they do not cause diarrhea. I gave her a small amount from my jar and she tried it. It not only did not affect her bowels, but it also cured the charlie-horses and her nightly suffering.

Next jar I’m going to try the Lavender Magnesium Chloride Balm as I am a lover of lavender.”

Absolutely love this product! I hand out as free samples to all my patients! I have used it on my charlie horses, lactic acid build up in my legs as well as sprains and strains! the results are amazing!

It makes my muscles feel much better within minutes. I use it for chronic muscle pain, and I love that it’s natural and something your body needs anyway.
