Product Application and Usage
Earth1 Magnesium oil is a transdermal magnesium supplement, designed to deliver magnesium through the skin, bypassing the gastrointestinal tract for convenient, rapid absorption into the cells.
For optimal uptake of magnesium ions, apply earth1 magnesium oil to clean skin, as dirt and cosmetic products can impede the uptake of the magnesium ions by the skin. Earth1 Magnesium oil should be applied topically. You can either spray direct on to the desired area or you can simply dispense 1-3 sprays into a cupped hand, then rub into the skin thoroughly. Repeat to cover arms, legs, and any areas needing special attention.
When applying earth1 magnesium oil at full strength, avoid direct contact with eyes, mucus membranes, and other sensitive areas. If redness or irritation occurs, rinse with cool water. As earth1 Magnesium oil is pure and undiluted, if you experience a slight skin irritation, dilute one part earth1 Magnesium oil with one part water to make a 50% strength solution.
Frequency of Usage
Earth1 Magnesium oil should be used sparingly at first with intensity increasing over time during the first 2 - 3 months, in order to ensure proper restoration of cellular magnesium levels. It is recommended to begin the first few days of application with modest use, and then gradually working up to larger amounts. A 2 - 3 month period of restoration follows, with daily use.
After the initial 2 -3 month period of restoration, some users continue at these same levels, while others back down to using earth1 Magnesium oil a few times per week. These levels serve only as a general guideline, as everyone has different needs and responds differently to magnesium therapy.
Recommendations on ideal magnesium levels vary, studies by the Australian Government Ministry of Health have published their recommended dietary intakes, suggesting optimal magnesium intake. This research can be found by clicking here
As per these studies, the recommended daily intake of magnesium for adults is 320mg - 420mg per day, depending on sex and age. One teaspoon or 5ml of earth1 Magnesium oil delivers approximately 1950mg of magnesium chloride which is 497mg of elemental magnesium onto the skin.
Some people however may require a higher Magnesium intake, these may include:
Women considering pregnancy
People suffering from chronic health complications
Those with a history of a poor diet
Persons with emotional or physical stress, or stress caused by injury, illness or surgery
Earth1 Magnesium oil provides an easy to use delivery system of re-mineralizing a magnesium-starved body.
