Many Researchers Call Magnesium ‘The Anti-Aging Mineral’

The body uses magnesium to rest, recover from stress, re-hydrate cells, restore energy levels and strengthen bones. Magnesium and moisture provide more shock absorbing capacity for bones because magnesium has a strong affinity with water. Cells need it to be present in water in order to hydrate better. Magnesium is arguably the most important mineral electrolyte in the body for that reason. If magnesium levels drop too low bones cells start to leak out their calcium stores and this is the beginning of osteoporosis.

Magnesium helps electrical and nervous system conductance in the body, as well as keeping the fluidity of our blood circulation and lymph system normal. In a sense, magnesium and water help to keep us younger and ‘juicier’!

In order to maintain our electrolyte fluids we also need the good oils (cholesterol fats) which stop our water from evaporating into the atmosphere. The cell membrane is made up of a lipid bi-layer, which has channels that open and close, letting wastes out and allowing nutrients in. The good fats help us to stay well lubricated, keeping the moisture where it is supposed to be. The skin barrier is a similar version of protective membrane.

As 99% of magnesium in the body is stored in muscle and bone, blood levels are not accurate indicators of total body magnesium levels. Muscle and bone cells can sacrifice their stored magnesium in order to keep blood levels normal. By the time we show up with low magnesium levels in blood, it indicates much more severe magnesium depletion in the rest of the body. As we age, magnesium levels drop lower and lower and it becomes very difficult to get enough magnesium via digestion alone. However, magnesium via skin can bypass the digestive system and allow the body to drink up what it needs for replenishment.



1.  Magnesium chloride flakes (food grade) for footsoaking and bathing:  MAGNESIUM IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FOR THE BODY’S DETOXIFICATION SYSTEM AND TO SUPPORT LIVER.  By soaking (say every second day) your body will not only have the opportunity to take up magnesium at its own pace (without further digestion), but also to excrete toxins via skin.  This lifts the load on the liver to process those toxins that need to be expelled.  Drinking adequate magnesium water every day (ie. similar to natural spring water) also helps your body to become better hydrated and able to flush out wastes.  See website for Mg flakes. Make sure to avoid drinking fluoridated chlorinated tap water as these chemicals will kill beneficial gut bacterial.  The chemicals also block and bind up magnesium.
2.  Start with small amounts of Herbal Elektra Magnesium Cream as a moisturiser to soothe and protect dry sensitive skin.  Many people find the Herbal Magnesium Cream the ‘go-to’ first for sensitive or extra-dry skin. This one is our most popular cream being used and promoted via naturopathic clinics – in particular for those with sensitive, inflamed, itchy or rash-prone skin.  Apply directly to itch prone areas, or just use all over as a body moisturizer.  Do not apply directly to broken, open or weeping skin, but work the cream in around the injured area.  Start with one teaspoon a day and then over a few weeks increase to 2 teaspoons for skin maintenance…  Again, there is no limit as to how much you use.  It is well absorbed, feels so good on skin, and promotes a more youthful looking complexion. 2 teaspoons provides 300mg magnesium, which is an average daily maintenance amount.  However people under high stress can need two or three times that amount, in which case it is best to combine different products such as magnesium soaking and/or adding on 6-12 sprays of Elektra Magnesium Oil Spritz.
The more stress we have to deal with the higher are the magnesium demands to support recovery, so it’s a bit of trial and error to work out your individual needs and daily routine. One T-shirt doesn’t fit all!  But there is no danger of overdose, so use as much as you need to feel better.


In cases of heightened skin sensitivity, here are some tips that may be helpful:
Although pure magnesium oil will sting and feel itchy to most people (being all water-based),  the secret to getting better magnesium absorption into skin is the blend of plant oils that carry the magnesium chloride salt and help it pass into the epidermis. This is what Elektra Magnesium Cream does.
Being able to absorb more magnesium transdermally can help your body to re-balance itself and become more tolerant by supporting detoxification, digestion and preservation of healthy fats and electrical energy in cells.
Here is a way for you to tread slowly and safely to support your skin’s needs as well as your immune system for recovery and maintenance. This should alleviate the high sensitivity.  Once your body restores normal magnesium  levels, your skin can start to recover and become more resilient, as magnesium helps to build collagen, which can hold more oil and water for skin barrier protection. (Also, avoid exposure to known chemicals…)

Magnesium is Essential for Bone Health

 Scientific studies show, “Positive associations between greater intakes of dietary magnesium and grip strength, indices of skeletal muscle mass, and BMD in men and women in middle and older age groups.” These studies suggest that magnesium supplementation may help with strategies to prevent sarcopenia, frailty, falls, and fractures.

Island Spice Magnesium Cream

FOR NATURAL SKIN CARE AND MUSCLE MASSAGE:  This light and delicate magnesium cream moisturiser is ideal for medium and oily skin types. It also works well as an anti-acne cream to help skin detox and recover with smooth soft skin and silky hydrated finish. Use also in massage to relax tight muscles and joints. Apply to muscles before and after workout for better recovery, and in relaxation massage for all ages, including babies and toddlers. Made with natural and organic ingredients.  2 teaspoons deliver 300mg elemental magnesium. 

Some individuals may need two or three times the average daily magnesium requirement in cases of more severe magnesium deficiency or high levels of stress. In this case extra magnesium can be supplied via Elektra Magnesium Oil Spritz, Elektra Magnesium Charge Lotion, as well as foot soaking or bathing with Elektra Magnesium Flakes.

There is no risk of overdose with transdermal magnesium because the body only takes up from the epidermis the magnesium that it can deal with at any one time.  The skin acts in this way as a reservoir of nutrients – a bit like a dinner plate or smorgasbord.  There are no chemicals in Elektra Magnesium products which artificially interfere with the healthy working of the skin barrier. The rich plant oils and butters help hold the magnesium ions inside the epidermal layer until used by the body.  Magnesium Cream helps keep the skin well hydrated, plumped up and protected for several hours after application.
