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.
It is simply no longer possible to naturally harvest a true pure magnesium oil from modern bodies of water, due to contamination by heavy metals such as mercury and lead.
Yet a clean source of magnesium oil’s healing abilities is in fact available through a combination of the work of geologists, medical experts, and a single brand committed to health through the original power and purity of the earth and sea.
Is it possible to achieve real purity in a magnesium oil product?
In the late 1990’s a rare and pristine source of unadulterated magnesium chloride was located in an ancient geological formation, and ties were made with the health community and advocates of magnesium supplementation. This occasion solved the dilemma of achieving a topical magnesium oil that is both natural and pure. The source is the ancient Zechstein Seabed.
The Zechstein salt beds are a perfectly preserved snapshot of pure magnesium chloride.
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.
In my commitment to a truly natural product that is also guaranteed free of impurities, I use only Genuine Zechstein™ magnesium chloride in my topical magnesium products. This unadulterated pure magnesium chloride is drawn from the ancient Zechstein Seabed from approximately 2 miles beneath the surface of the earth.

Pure magnesium oil supplementation is considered essential by leading nutrition experts due to the prevalence of magnesium deficiency in the modern diet and magnesium’s crucial role in over 300 fundamental biochemical reactions. When you increase your magnesium levels, you optimize your body’s support system.
Magnesium deficiency can affect several of the body’s systems, yet many are unaware of the role it plays in optimal health . Long term studies on the impact of high magnesium and fiber diets have shown potential benefits toward cardiovascular health, and hypertension, as well as chronic symptoms of the muscular and neurological systems. Our bodies cannot produce magnesium on their own, so elevating magnesium levels with an effective, high quality magnesium supplement is critical.
Magnesium’s effect on the body can be as intense as that of many prescription medicine, because magnesium functions as a regulator of electrolyte balance, metabolism, and other biochemical reactions. The addition of a higher magnesium intake is essential and can lead to an improve life experience.
Unlike prescription drugs, however, magnesium is recognized as an essential component of the body, not a foreign element. When supplied sufficiently, magnesium is actually conserved by the body for future use. Medications, on the other hand, tend to treat only one symptom or disease, and are flushed out of the body as toxins, thus taxing the liver and the body’s detoxification systems.
- Magnesium is an important factor in muscle relaxation and heart health
- Allows nerves to send messages in the brain and nervous system
- Aids and regulates the body’s use of calcium and other minerals
- Assists in bone and teeth formation
- Regulates the metabolism of nutrients such as protein, nucleic acids, fats and carbohydrates
- Regulates cholesterol production and helps modulate insulin sensitivity 3
- Assists in energy production, DNA transcription and protein synthesis4
- Maintains the structural health of cell membranes throughout the body
Why take magnesium? Healthy magnesium levels have been linked to lowered blood pressure, reduced incidence of type II diabetes, reduced heart disease, emergency migraine treatment, reduced symptoms of asthma, and improved memory.
Magnesium is also a healthy part of bone and a necessary element in healthy calcium regulation. Increased magnesium has been linked to reduced bone loss in older adults.
Magnesium Benefits for Women
As you’ve read, magnesium has countless benefits for everyone, but can be particularly supportive for certain health concerns that arise for women. Magnesium deficiencies have been linked to bone fragility leading to osteoporosis. This can also be attributed to the little know fact that the body needs magnesium to properly metabolize calcium. It’s important to also supplement with magnesium, when supplementing with calcium, for this very reason.
Magnesium is also involved in hormone regulation. Researchers hypothesize that magnesium influences different ion levels of estrogen and progesterone in the body, and this may be why it helps with PMS, and bloating. More stabilized hormones means increased serotonin, and a better overall mood. A significant reduction of anxiety-related premenstrual symptoms (nervous tension, mood swings, irritability, and anxiety) has been noted with magnesium supplementation.
Magnesium Benefits for Men
As much as magnesium assists with female hormones, there is also evidence that magnesium plays a fundamental role in testosterone levels and physical function in males.
A study in 2010, revealed that supplementation with magnesium increases free and total testosterone values in both sedentary males and in athletes. Also concluding that increases were higher in those who exercise.
The good news is that magnesium supplementation is a safe and effective way for most people to ensure they are getting enough magnesium to stay healthy, before deficiencies arise.
