Description Usage Supplement Facts Magnesium Gel is a highly concentrated gel of pure magnesium chloride mined deep under the earth’s surface from the Zechstein Sea in the Netherlands. Easy to apply because of its gel form deal for skin conditions and massage Can be used daily No unpleasant odor Among minerals, magnesium is the most life giving available, central to energy manufacture, balance and regulation. Magnesium has been hailed by some as the panacea of our age, and its deficiency our silent epidemic. Yet rising levels of contaminants in our sea waters today threaten the most convenient and soluble form of magnesium: topical magnesium produced from natural magnesium chloride. Zechstein Seabed In the late 1990’s a rare and pristine source of unadulterated magnesium chloride was located in an ancient geological formation, the ancient Zechstein Seabed. Some 250 million years ago the Zechstein Sea was a concentrated inland salt water sea, with many of the characteristics of the Dead Sea today. The striking difference between the Dead Sea and the Zechstein Sea is the fact that the Zechstein Sea was active in an age millions of years prior to man’s industrialization and pollution of our water supplies, in a time where dinosaurs still roamed the earth. Magnesium chloride, a natural salt of magnesium, was plentiful in this sea and concentrated by a combination of flooding by sea waters and slow evaporation. Over time, these dense waters found their way deep into underground deposits, slowly accumulating through fissures in the earth over millions of years, trapped underground by overlying rock. Though the Zechstein Sea itself no longer exists today, the Zechstein salt beds are a perfectly preserved snapshot of pure magnesium chloride as it existed in its natural state, millions of years ago. Magnesium from the Zechstein Sea is in the highly coveted form of magnesium chloride, one of the most bio-available and easily assimilated magnesium compounds in both dietary and topical applications. Magnesium chloride has often been referred to as the "Master Magnesium Compound" due to its clinical efficacy in a wide range of therapeutic applications. Magnesium chloride, a natural salt of magnesium, was plentiful in this sea and concentrated by a combination of flooding by sea waters and slow evaporation. Over time, these dense waters found their way deep into underground deposits, slowly accumulating through fissures in the earth over millions of years, trapped underground by overlying rock. This unadulterated pure magnesium chloride is drawn from the ancient Zechsten Seabed from approximately 2 miles beneath the surface of the earth. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
