02/14/2012: Dr Fronk from Indiana, Pa 15701: "Magnesium is excellent for dissolving Kidney Stones!! Take 3 or 4 capsules a couple times a day and avoid the hospital stay."
[YEA] 01/24/2011: Lena from Tallahassee, Florida: "Your body when it produces leg cramps or restless leg syndrome usually means the body is low on magnesium. I suffer from this same thing and when I take a magnesium supplement the pain goes away"Replies
01/25/2011: Mzellie from Evansville, Wi replies: "one can use magnesium oil by spraying this on your legs, arms, over your heart and soak your feet for 30 days.. And get your magnesium levals up to par... Your can also make your own... Much cheaper this way.. boy is this really good mag.oil"
03/22/2011: Grammie4u from Duncan, Bc, British Columbia, Canada replies: "Hello; I am very new to this site and I am so appreciative of all of the valuable info. Did you know you can make your own magesium oil very easily. It is very simple and the magnesium chloride is obtained from a product that you use to make tofu it is called Nigari flakes they are a food safe product.
A Grammie who cares. From Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada"
EC: Link you provided did not work.
03/23/2011: Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France replies: "Yes, please provide the link for making magnesium oil as I can get Nigari easily here in France."
[YEA] 08/23/2011: Jeff from Cebu City, Philippines replies: "To those interested, I used a ratio of 1:1, I boiled a cup of water and Dissolved a cup of magnesium chloride. So far, its working quite well, I rub it on my mom's legs every night. Her legs would itch a lot due to poor circulation, although it has helped her sleep quite well at night even if she feels itchy."
[YEA] 08/25/2011: Antonio from Maputo, Mozambique replies: "Thanks, works real well for leg cramps. Took Magnesium Chloride 535mg once at night for three nights and since then a great night sleep with no cramps."
04/28/2012: Kate from Oregon City, Oregon replies: "I was utterly floored to learn that high blood pressure, racing heart, insomnia, foot and leg cramps and even osteoporosis were all symptomatic of magnesium deficiency. Since I've got them all, I decided I definitely needed more magnesium and then quickly learned that 500 mg in oral supplements is about my limit before diarrhea and intestinal cramping sets in.
So yeah, transdermal magnesium applications make sense to me. I haven't located a local source for Nigari (mag. Chloride) yet, but did get some Epsom salts. (mag. Sulphide)
I tried making the oil with Epsom Salt and spraying it on but my skin really stung from the application. Then I did a little more research and found one site that gave instructions on combining Epsom Salts with coconut oil to make a cream and massaging it into your skin. I used about ½ cup salts to ¼ cup boiling water, (stirred a bunch and microwaved it until it was all dissolved good) which made a really thick "oil. " I keep this in a plastic container in the fridge until I'm ready for my "transdermal magnesium massage."
When I'm ready, I use 1 tbs. of Epsom Salts oil to 1 tbs. of coconut oil and mix it all up together real good in a small bowl, just using my fingers. It makes a light creamy mixture.
When I applied it, it didn't sting my skin and the cream was completely absorbed in less than twenty minutes, leaving my skin feeling soft and silky.
The spray oil irritated my skin, but the coconut oil and Epsom salt cream worked superbly. And it's so easy too! I can use it right after I take a shower or massage it into my feet, calves and arms while sitting in front of the TV.
I've combined this with my "Naked Bloody Mary blood pressure drink" which I consume faithfully now twice a day. It's 1 8oz glass of low sodium V-8 juice (820 mg. Of potassium! ) to which I add ¼ to ½ tsp. Cayenne pepper, ½ tsp garlic powder, and 2 tsp celery seed (and a slosh or two of Worcestershire sauce if 'ya want). Yep. It's dang hot but I'm getting used to it cuz' it works! (Potassium, garlic, cayenne and celery seed are all known helps for lowering blood pressure.)
After using this regimen just one week my blood pressure has dropped from 135/80 to 122/75! No more foot cramps and no more racing heart either!
Thank God! There IS hope and it sure ain't big Pharma!"
Low Magnesium Indicator
04/28/2013: Joy from Battleground, Wash: "I looked into someone's eyes and there was a spot on the colored part that was turning grey and the rest was green, almost like the color had washed out. One of my friends is a nurse and I showed her and she gave the person a magnesium IV and her eye color was restored and her other health conditions that doctors had not been able to solve were healed with the IV magnesium. She was very low and sufferring miserably. They don't test mag levels when they do your blood tests."
Magnesium Bicarbonate Solution
11/20/2011: Elpocketo from Oldham, Lancashire Uk: "hi guys, I am interested to try and make my own mag bicarb water, I have a recipe which says to add 5ml (400mg) of milk of magnesia to a bottle of carbonated water, then gives instructions to dilute the resulting concentrated mix. The milk of magnesia contains already sodium hydrogen carbonate and gycerol and peppermint oil, will these additives play any role in the reaction or is it ok these are present?"Replies
08/25/2012: Mary from Regina, Saskechewan, Canada replies: "Hi this question is for you Bill. To accurately make the mag bicarbonate water would I be correct with the following proportions? 1 liter of carbonated water, 500ml of MoM, and 120ml of baking powder?
08/26/2012: Bill from San Fernando, Philippines replies: "Hi Mary... To make a solution of magnesium bicarbonate, the easiest way is just to use Milk of Magnesia -- no aluminium -- and carbonated water.
Here is the recipe:
This homemade magnesium/bicarbonate water, in its composition, is very close to brands like Noah's California Spring Water or Unique Water. The recipe is based on the reaction of magnesium hydroxide (in milk of magnesia) with plain carbonated water according to the formula
Mg(OH)2 plus 2CO2 > Mg(HCO3)2
Plain Milk of Magnesia (MoM) should be used in the recipe. The "active" ingredient should only be magnesium hydroxide [Mg (OH)2], 400 mg per teaspoon (5 ml), and the "inactive" ingredient should only be purified water. 41. 7% by weight of magnesium hydroxide is magnesium (Mg), so 5 ml of MoM has 167 mg of Mg, and 1 tablespoon has 500 mg of Mg (1 tablespoon = 15 ml).
To prepare the water follow these steps:
1. Chill a 1-liter bottle of unflavored seltzer, which is fully carbonated water. The seltzer should only contain water and carbon dioxide (CO2). Club soda is carbonated water with a small amount of added sodium and is also suitable.
2. Shake the bottle of Milk of Magnesia well, then measure out 3 tablespoons (45 ml) and have it ready. The plastic measuring cup that comes with the MoM is accurate and ideal for the purpose.
3. Remove the bottle of unflavored seltzer from the refrigerator without agitating it. Open it slowly and carefully to minimize the loss of CO2. As soon as the initial fizzing settles down, slowly add the pre-measured MoM. Promptly replace the cap on the water bottle and shake it vigorously for 30 seconds or so, making the liquid cloudy.
After 1/2 hour or so the liquid will have cleared, and any un-dissolved magnesium hydroxide will have settled to the bottom of the bottle. Again shake the bottle vigorously for 30 seconds or so, making the liquid cloudy again. When the liquid again clears all of the magnesium hydroxide in the MoM should have reacted with all of the CO2 to become dissolved (ionized) magnesium and bicarbonate.
If a small amount of un-dissolved magnesium hydroxide still remains in the bottom of the bottle as a sediment it may be ignored.
This 1 liter of concentrated magnesium bicarbonate water will have approximately 1500 mg of magnesium and approximately 7500 mg of bicarbonate. It should be kept in the refrigerator. You may note that the sides of the bottle "cave in" when the liquid clears. This is a sign that the reaction is complete.
To make 4 liters of magnesium bicarbonate drinking water with approximately 125 mg of magnesium and approximately 625 mg of bicarbonate per liter and a pH of approximately 8 measure and transfer 1/3 liter of the concentrate (333 ml) into a 4-liter container. Fill the container with 3 2/3 liters of plain or purified water, as desired.
Magnesium dissolved in water (ionized) is considerably more bioavailable than is magnesium in pill form. While this is not as concentrated as colloidal magnesium, it is considerably easier on the tastebuds.
11/15/2009: Bill from San Fernando, La Union, Philippines: "Making Magnesium Bicarbonate Solution From Milk of Magnesia (MoM)
Hi everyone...I found a website article which is useful. There is a new magnesium drinking product in Australia that has been proved to extend the life of mammals. This patent is based on a certain region of Australia where the drinking water is high in magnesium, and where all livestock there seem to live a life that is 30% longer than normal. The patented drinking solution consists mainly of Magnesium Bicarbonate and Sodium Bicarbonate in simple aqueous solution.
The description in the patent says to add 500 mgs Magnesium Carbonate or Magnesium hydroxide to 1 litre cold carbonated water. Store in the fridge for 24 -- 72 hours and allow the solution to clear from cloudy. Add a small amount of amount -- 120 mg -- of Sodium Bicarbonate.
Drink this mixture throughout the day but not with meals -- one hour before or two hours after meals. Adjust to a lower dose if bowels become too loose.
You could also make this solution by using MoM and Baking soda quite easily -- using Phillip's Milk of Magnesia, Baking Soda and seltzer or carbonated water. Do not use the MoM that contains Aluminium Hydroxide.
Read about the patent, manufacture and research here:
10/17/2010: Vetta from Northeast, Usa replies: "To Bill: This sounds fascinating and I would like to try it. Can you tell me the proportions of MoM, baking soda, and carbonated water? You say 500 mg MoM, but what is that in volume? I assume you did NOT mean 500 ml. The link you posted suggests. 5 liter throughout the day; have you tried it yourself and what have you noticed? Many thanks."
10/19/2010: Vetta from Northeast, Usa replies: "That should read .5 liter above. Sorry for the mistype."
12/06/2013: Floridamark from Titusville,fl replies: "I totally agree with the above, that it is simple to make your own water using Magnesium Hydroxide (MOM) but it should have no other ingredients under inactive ingredients other then purified water. No bleach, no coloring, no flavoring. Just use the cap on top of the MOM and add a hair less then 3 tablespoons to the 1 liter bottle of seltzer water. This water is a good start for any other recipe that follows. Example would be those looking to add ACV or Salt or Baking soda for instance. There are videos to show you how on popular video sites I won't mention because some have ads in front which may violate EarthClinic policy. Just type Magnesium Bicarbonate Water or Homemade water in the search engine. I've been using this for quite sometime. I am 53 and my doc said I have a heart of a 15 year old. My bloodwork comes back perfect everytime. He even asked me what I'm doing and I tell him and everybody I know everything. I try to drink healthy, eat healthy, and supplement my diet with those nutrients that are no longer in our food for one reason or another. Starts with our water and I love EarthClinic for bringing me so many things I didn't know to life."
12/07/2013: Kevin from San Jose, California: "I have purchased magnesium chloride in the pill form of 100 mg. What is the proper dosage of 5% solution? Should I break the pill up? Maybe if I go to a store and purchase pills in capsule form of some other product and use it as a guide line. I think that will work. What do you think?"
01/10/2013: Ed2010 from Oakville, Canada: "Hi I was browsing in the local health food store. I was looking into Magnesium Oil - Magnesium Chloride. In the product it was mentioned only for topical application. I was wondering is it ok to ingest Magnesium Chloride as well. Thanks."Replies
01/11/2013: Mmsg from Somewhere, Europe replies: "Ed2010, where I buy my mag. chloride flakes, it specifically says that it can be taken internally. If it doesn't say so on the packaging, ask."
01/11/2013: Phyllis from Sudbury, Ontario replies: "The oil is definitely for external use only.
There are other choices, though. I have a bottle of Ionic Magnesium (chloride) that I purchased at a vitamin store. It comes with a metered dropper and you put it in a small amount of fruit juice to mask the mineral taste."
01/07/2013: Maggie from Calgary, Alberta,canada: "I have purchased liquid magnesium chloride in the past from a reputable company. Now the product is shown as discontinued and I can no longer find any other suppliers who sell this product. The same company makes a new liquid magnesium but it is magnesium sulfate. Anyone know why?"Replies
01/08/2013: Gerrit from Abbotsford, Bc, Canada replies: "Maggie there is a distributer in Alberta for Zechmag 32 magnesium chloride oil, he also handles Magnascent iodine. Last year I bought both from him."
01/08/2013: Mmsg from Somewhere, Europe replies: "Maggie, why buy the oil when you can easily make it from magnesium chloride flakes and water?!"
01/08/2013: Leah from Baltimore, Md replies: "Re: Magnesium Chloride Spray for Canadian woman. You can get the spray on this site earth clinic and other american sites."
EC: We don't sell Magnesium Oil on Earth Clinic, however there are posts that explain how to make it here: http://www.earthclinic.com/Remedies/transdermal-magnesium-therapy.html
01/09/2013: Carole from Bury Village, West Sussex, England replies: "There is a Swiss-based company that offers Magnesium Chloride in liquid form."
01/10/2013: Joy from Phuket, Thailand replies: "Make your own magnesium chloride you will find its expensive to buy ready made, it really is simple with instructions on EC page, many many thanks to everyone who contributes to earth clinic, I feel we are one huge family all helping each other."
[YEA] 10/28/2012: Wayfarer from Motown, Ca/ USA: "Been researching to the core issues of health, and have found this stuff, Magnesium Chloride oil. It has so much going for it, I can only suggest looking it up! Among the most striking, are studies showing that it can stop or even reverse aging, and help heal all manner of issues, something needed by every body. It even re-mineralizes teeth, when brush with it. I am getting it first thing Monday morning to spray on my body.
Magnesium oil, essentially ancient dead sea salt, is an excellent complement to iodine, MSM, baking soda, ALA, N-acetyl cystein. It is absorbed by the skin without the diarrhea that comes from taking it internally. Scripture says that it is good to soak in the foam of the sea, and perhaps this is why. One would expect that soaking in dead sea salts would also provide magnesium through the skin. I still like the sea salts as an internal cleanser, though. And a quote:
"Brushing the teeth with Magnesium Oil and massaging it into the skin can directly assist with re- mineralizing teeth and bones."
[YEA] 10/28/2012: Bess from Calgary, Alberta, Canada replies: "You're right about magnesium oil - it's great. We make our own by mixing magnesium chloride with distilled water (50/50). We put it in an empty roll-on deodorant bottle and use it as a deodorant, as well as rolling the oil on our legs and arms, bottoms of our feet, etc. No fuss - no muss! Cheers, Bess"
08/23/2012: Turquoisegrece from Blenheim, New Zealand: "Is pure oil not too strong for face? Is it also a good protection against sun, as a sun screen? How strong? Thanks. Dcmcb"
11/28/2011: Maria from Gippsland, Australia: "Hi Bill, I would really appreciate your opinion. I have just got some magnesium chloride and when it arrived the bag says for industrial use. It is not quite pure white, say off white and when I made it to solution it is a little cloudy with a very slight dirty appearance (only very slight). It also has a bitter almond odour. Could this be cyanide? I have read something that Dr Mark Circus wrote that even with 25 times the heavy metal pollution it is a 1000x better than nothing. I got it for footbaths and to apply transdermally but now am uncertain if it should be used or not at all or only sometimes. I have applied it twice to my legs and had good results, the same as if I were using the small expensive packet of pure white flakes. Would you think it ok to continue using them? Your opinion/ thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I do look forward to reading your posts. Thanks, Maria"Replies
11/29/2011: Bill from San Fernando, Philippines replies: "Hi Maria... I'm afraid that I can't really advise you here. My own Magnesium Chloride that I use as mag oil is chemical grade purity. But when there is a peculiar almond smell and a milky, dirty appearance, perhaps you should write to the manufacturers and get a purity analysis off them or go online, find their website and email them for your own peace of mind. Or perhaps you could get someone to do an impurity analysis of your magnesium chloride locally. And whether to use it or not is really up to you to decide."
12/02/2011: Maria from Gippsland, Australia replies: "Thanks Bill."
[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS] 08/26/2011: Jeff from Cebu City, Philippines: "Recently, I bought Magnesium Chloride crystals and made mag oil out of it. My mom, who has both diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis, seems to sleep better when I rub it on her lower legs. The problem is that it constantly itches. I am not sure if she is allergic to it since her legs don't turn red or anything but it itches like being bitten by a mosquito. I've been rubbing it on her legs for almost a week and the level of itching is still the same. I tried once to just paint it on her soles and it seems that her soles don't itch but her legs still itches even if I just rub it on her soles. My wife is speculating that it may be an issue of bad circulation. Has anyone experienced this? I've read through the magnesium and circulation postings and didn't find anything about itching. I did read somewhere that its quite probable since blood starts travel back in your skin and that makes it itch. My question is, how long does it take for the itching to start subsiding?"Replies
08/26/2011: Lisa from Rabat, Morocco replies: "Hi Jeff, I don't know if this is true or not, but I have read from several people online that if a person is deficient in magnesium that the oil will cause burning/itching. From my own experience I found this to be true. When I first started the mag. oil, I had terrible burning/itching and stopped using it. I took mag. powder internally for awhile then went back to using the oil again. This time, I had no burnng/itching. I couldn't say how long it will take for this to go away."
08/26/2011: Maria from Gippsland, Australia replies: "Hi Jeff, This also happened to me. All through childhood and until recently I would even have to wash sea water off after having a swim, no waiting till I got home. Instead of rubbing the mag oil on spray it on and leave it on for a few minutes or till the itching starts and rinse off. Then lightly rub legs with ev olive oil or coconut oil. Soaking the feet in a tub also helps, do it for 20 mins in the evening. If all else fails try epsom salts foot soaks. I have never had a problem with epsom salts. Absolutely excellent in the bath and foot soaks, just use a jug of water or shower to rinse off. It may also be worthwhile taking a small amount of magnesium orally about 1/2 hour before bed. It's interesting that your wife thinks it could be circulation as I would have to say that mine has improved and now sea water does not need to be rinsed off, never thought of that.
If your mum has any other skin issues have a look at neem supplements and some morning or afternoon sunshine for Vit D. All the best."
08/31/2011: Jeff from Cebu City, Philippines replies: "Thanks for the feedback. To Maria, what my wife meant was that my mom may have bad circulation issues before, and taking mag oil made the circulation better. My mom-in-law used to tell her that some people get itchy skin when the circulation comes rushing back, since blood tends to float up to the skin. I guess her circulation improved since she is sleeping better. But now her skin is full of red spots. I'm laying off the magnesium chloride for a while. Last night I tried dipping her feet in water with H202 which seemed to help lighten the red spots a bit. I don't think she's allergic to the mag oil because its only the top part of her foot which has the red spots. Her shins do itch but no spots. I also rubbed some on her forearm and even her chest but no red spots. only 1 area has those.
Do you guys think its ok to soak her feet in epsom salt even with the red spots or should I let it subside first?"
[SIDE EFFECTS] 09/05/2011: Jeff from Cebu City, Philippines replies: "As an update, the red spots that manifested on my mom's skin which was caused by the Magnesium Oil actually disappeared when I applied magnesium oil onto it. I read on another website that the red spots are suppose to be unused calcium from the cells which floated up to the skin, and putting magnesium oil on those spots should let the calcium go back to the bloodstream so that it can be used again by the body."
02/28/2012: Jef from Cebu City, Surigao replies: "Hello, Can I ask something? Where did u buy milk of magnesia here in cebu???? I went to watsons, rose pharmacy and other drug stores but there's no product there, even at the groceries. Pls help me. Can u just send it to my email? jefc_cuanan(at)ymail.com Hoping for your reply. Thanks a lot"
03/26/2013: Bobynn from South Royalton, Vt, Usa replies: "A tip for the itching is to dilute the magnesium oil with more water. Separate into another small spray bottle and dillute it by 50 percent or more and then gradually increase the amount of the magnesium. I like to apply coconut oil over the magnesium and then go to bed. No reason to go full guns and be uncomfortably miserable with stinging and itching. I find that I can apply it to my scalp much stronger than to my face. So I get my hands wet and apply more water where it runs down behind my ears and on my forhead and cheeks full strength is too itchy. A splash of water and rub it in and I still get the benefits of it on my face. My hair by the way was falling by gobs. For the last 5 years in my hair brush and the shower drain. It was getting thin and my hair line had changed. My eyebrows were disappearing. Within a month or so my hair stopped falling out. And it is now coming back in even my eyebrows are starting to fill in. I like to rub into my scalp and sleep with it all night. When I wash it out in the morning my hair is exceptionally shiny with good body after leaving it on my scalp all night."
06/20/2011: Luana from Hollywood, Florida : "Thank you Bill from San Fernando! Your comments and links on magnesium chloride. This saved my digestion. ACV had helped with acid reflux but the magnesuim chloride is a miracle. I was in such bad shape, wasn't even able to digest food. From everything I have read it appears that I have been deficient in magnesium for a long time, but my entire chemistry was messed up by a staff infection I was given during surgey or from all the antibiotics. It happened so fast and doctors have no clue. They don't even take you serioulsy if they can't just perscribe a deadly drug. I have been getting sicker and sicker and just didn't know how much longer I could go on. I was taking the magnesium at night.
One night I watched a documentary called Feed your head about a doctor curing paranoid schitzophrenia with niacin. I have niacin but didn't take it regularly. That night I took the niacin with the magnesium and the next day I felt wonderful the next day, it was so dramatic. In the info you posted it states you need magnesium to properly metabolzie b vitamins and boy I sure learned that taking the two together. I thought the first day may have been a fluke, but as every day was better, it could only have been the magnesium with the niacin.
So I told my husband and he tried it. He experienced the same thing, you wake up feeling so good, full of energy and don't even need the coffee. I owe you Bill. I got a copy of my blood tests and the thing that was really out of control was my calcium levels. My doctor never even mentioned this, I guess he didn't see this as a problem. I am post menapausal for 10 years so supposedly should be calcium deficient. I was really upset to learn about the calcium and how the great damage these lies are doing to our bodies. I have had kidney problems from calcium deposits for years. Have bone spurs from calcium and can only imagine what it has done to my heart and arteries.
Our American healthcare is criminal. I am sharing the magnesium chloride and niacin at night with everyone I know. Especially with other women as we are bombarded with the suppsed need for all this calcium and have no idea that without magnesium, we are poisioning our bodies."Replies
06/20/2011: Mary from Regina, Canada replies: "Hi: would you share what form and amount of magnesium and how much niacin. Also is this on an empty right before bed? Thanks"
06/21/2011: Luana from Hollywood, Fl replies: "I take 2 Alta Magensium Chloride tablets with a 500 mg niacin. I started taking all my b vitamins now at night and no longer have bright yellow urine, so it sure seems that the magensium does impact the metabolization of b vitamins, so you actually use the vitamin. I started taking the same dose of the magnesium and niacin during the early afternoon or late morning. Starting to get tired mid afternoon like the effects wore off. Now it lasts through the day."
06/21/2011: Luana from Hollywood, Fl replies: "Hi Mary, forgot to answer you on timing. We take about an hour before bed or so. I drink with milk but my husband just with water. Like I said, it has worked great doing it in the afternoon too. You just need to take the niacin with the magnesium. I had starting taking the magnesium chloride at night, and just happened to want to take the niacin after watching the documentry on Dr. Abram Hoffer and niacin. That made me want ti take niacin so I took it with the magenesium. I had taken niacin many times over the years but never felt anything but the flush. I never experienced anything like the effect as such when taking it with the magnesium chloride. The magnesium was great for sleep, acid reflux, digestion and for nerves, but alone there was no effect of the energy and mental clarity, better and disposition as such as when taken with the niacin. From Dr. Hoffer's research, niacin is just so important for the brain, which needs so much more nutrients than an other body system. But the just plain old feeling so good and energy wasn't something I was expecting. Everyone else I have given this too has the same experience. Just some feel so good in the AM then sort of hit an afternoon crash, but take the mag and niacin again and you are set for the day."
10/28/2011: Glenys from Brisbane, Australia replies: "Hi Luana. Are you still taking the B6 together with the Magnesium. 500mg is a big dose of B6? I am surprised that you can take it before going to bed and still sleep? What dose of the Magnesium Chloride do you take?"
05/31/2011: Frances from Gcs, Fl: "Thank you EC for all the information. I would like to try the magnesium chloride transdermal treatment.

06/01/2011: Candy from Fort Madison, Iowa replies: "healthandwisdom.com"
06/01/2011: Merryanne from Orange City, Florida replies: "Hi Frances, This is Merryanne in Central FL, You can find Magnesium Chlorid Crystals in Aquarium Storis that sell all the minerials for salt water tanks, it is all very pure and clean, it has to or it will kill the fish. You can also find it on eBay and order it. You take 1 cup of mag crystals and 1 cup of very hot water and mix untill melted, there you have mag oil you can spray on or take one teaspoon a day( about 600 mg per teaspoon) I have been taking it every day for over or about a year, it is the best magnesium for your body, it has no laxitive effect and it is quickly motabilised by your body."
06/01/2011: Bill from San Fernando, San Fernando, Philippines replies: "Frances... Magnesium Chloride flakes are normally sold in larger amounts but there are other opitions for you. Magnesium Chloride flakes is not normally sold in health shops, but Magnesium Oil is sold in health shops. Magnesium Oil simply consists of 60% -- 70% magnesium chloride flakes dissolved in 30% -- 40% water.
You can use Magnesium Oil and either take it internally -- 10 drops at a time -- once or twice a day or just just spread 10 drops under each forearm(I do this) for direct transdermal absorbtion into the blood. Using the transdermal method bypasses problems which might occur during digestion and absorbtion of magnesium in the intestines. You can also safely supplement much larger amounts of Magnesium Chloride using the transdermal method."
