There are two ways to get magnesium into the body, orally (by mouth) and transdermally (through the skin).
Transdermal Absorption Of Magnesium
chloride oil directly onto the skin. A small amount may be massaged or rubbed into any area of the body. For example, it may be used on the back of
the neck and shoulders to treat stress, the legs and feet to work with the lymph system or the abdomen to work with the digestive system.
Magnesium chloride has been found to be rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream when applied to the body. This method is a valuable way of absorbing
magnesium, particularly for those whose digestive system is compromised by a poor diet or other diagnosed digestive problems and cannot absorb minerals
such as magnesium when taken orally.
You may apply a compress using magnesium oil – soak a thin cotton cloth in magnesium oil, wring out and apply to any area of the body (cover with a
‘cling wrap’ to avoid getting on your clothes). A hot pack helps with absorption.
Oral Consumption of Magnesium
Magnesium tablets can be purchased an taken orally or magnesium chloride powder can be mixed with water and taken orally. The daily recommended amount
is approximately 400mg for men 320mg women.
In 1 gram magnesium chloride = 120 milligrams (mgs) elemental magnesium
To dilute Magnesium chloride for oral use: 1 part magnesium chloride powder to 3 parts pure water.
Dosage: Take 5ml of liquid 3 times a day. This provides approximately 600mg elemental magnesium. You can add this to a glass of water so it
doesn’t taste so bad.
