» Magnesium - The Beautiful Metal


Magnesium was first identified in 1755 by Joseph Black but it was over a century before that, in 1618 its amazing properties were recognised by Henry Wicker, a farmer who lived in Epsom, England.

Epsom is well known for its abundance of natural mineral springs and on a dry summer that year, Wicker attempted to give his cows drinking water from a well on his land. However, the cows refused to drink it due to its bitter taste. Around the same time Wicker noticed that the water seemed to help heal scratches and rashes. It didn't take long for news of the healing well to spread, eventually leading to the discovery that the water contained magnesium sulphate; later to become recognised the world over as Epsom Salts.

What is so special about Magnesium?

Magnesium contributes to a large number of processes within the body including:

  • Electrolyte balance.
  • The maintenance of normal bones and teeth.
  • A reduction in tiredness and fatigue.
  • Muscle function.
  • Protein synthesis
  • Psychological function
  • Energy-yielding metabolism
  • A role in the process of cell division

Are you getting enough?

Today's dietary intake may be lacking in this essential mineral due to the high consumption of processed foods. With Western diets containing more and more processed foods subjected to longer transport times, not only is Magnesium lost, but foods rich in this essential mineral do not appear as often in our diets as they used to.

Natural sources of Magnesium

Magnesium rich foods include dark leafy green vegetables (raw spinach), squash, pumpkin and flax seeds, mackerel, avocados, bananas, whole grains, beans and lentils, nuts, seafood, and even dark chocolate / cocoa powder.

If you think you may not be eating enough of the right kind of foods or if nutritional testing has highlighted a deficiency then magnesium food supplementation may be the answer.

Why Bob's Best Magnesium?

There are many oral magnesium supplements on the market but we believe the best way to supplement with magnesium is transdermally (through the skin).

Bob's Best Magnesium is in the form of Magnesium Chloride (MgCl2). Magnesium Chloride is generally recognised as the best Magnesium compound for both dietary and transdermal use. Particular benefits include its high solubility, its ability to be absorbed quickly through the skin via transdermal/topical application and its stability constant of zero. This means that Magnesium Chloride is totally ionized, resulting in MgCl2 being able to separate into smaller particles, making MgCl2 the most bio-available Magnesium for the body. This is important as the human body takes on Magnesium not as the Magnesium Chloride compound, but as free Magnesium and Chloride ions.

Where is Bob's Best Magnesium from?

Bob's Best Transdermal Magnesium is ultra pure Magnesium Chloride from deep beneath the earth, more specifically, the ancient Zechstein seabed deposits. These 250 million year old deposits are incredibly pure as they lie 1600m to 2000m below the surface of the earth. This pristine source yields the purest Magnesium Oil in the world. Zechstein Minerals BV was established in 2006 to serve the cosmetic and medical markets with the naturally pure Magnesium Chloride from the Zechstein source. Transdermal Magnesium Chloride is often referred to as Magnesium Oil. Although it has an oily consistency and feel on the skin, the product is technically a brine: a MgCl2 salt solution dissolved in ultra pure distilled water.

Interesting Magnesium facts

Magnesium is the eighth most plentiful mineral on earth, the third most abundant in sea water and the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body.

Around half of the body's Magnesium is found inside the cells of body tissues and organs. The other half is combined with calcium and phosphorus in bone.

» Specific information on the benefits of Magnesium


Magnesium for electrolyte balance

An 'electrolyte' is a scientific term for a salt, specifically ions, and Magnesium is one of the primary electrolytes in the human body. Electrolytes are essential as they are minerals which carry an electrical charge. They are what your cells, in particular nerve, heart and muscle cells, use to maintain voltages across their membranes and carry electrical impulses such as nerve impulses and muscle contractions across themselves, and to other cells. They are vital in maintaining fundamental bodily functions such as the beating of the heart, contraction of muscles and nerve transmissions that communicate sensory processes. These electrolytes need to be balanced to ensure the body is functioning at its optimum level. The kidneys work to keep the electrolyte concentrations in the blood continuous, regardless of changes that happen in the body resulting in the loss of electrolytes such as dehydration or sweating. These electrolytes must be replaced to keep the electrolyte concentrations of body fluids constant.

Magnesium for bones and teeth

Magnesium has been shown to enable the metabolism of vitamin D, meaning it is essential for bone health and the treatment of osteoporosis. A lot of people think that the most important factor in maintaining healthy bones and teeth is Calcium. However, it is becoming increasingly recognised that Vitamin D is also important and that Magnesium is necessary to convert the Vitamin D into its active form so that it can enhance Calcium absorption. All the enzymes that metabolise Vitamin D require Magnesium as a necessary co-factor, as Magnesium stimulates the hormone Calcitonin, which helps to preserve bone structure by drawing calcium out of the blood and soft tissues back into the bones.

Are You An M.E/CFS Patient?

I have severe M.E, and got much benefit from Magnesium Oil. Reduced pain, lowered anxiety, and eased insomnia.

Magnesium is one of the most recommended supplements for M.E/CFS patients. If you can't persuade your GP to prescribe you intramuscular Magnesium injections, and don't like the idea of doing them yourself,
then Transdermal is the way to go.

More expensive than bathing regularly in Epsom Salts, but a whole lot more portable, and quicker acting than a soak in the bath!

I do take various supplements for osteoporosis, - so is it safe to add this product - Transdermal Magnesium Chloride. Can I use this say just a few times a week and concentrate on the joints that are troublesome. Thanks for your advice.
2010-06-01 13:49:51
I have recently purchased your joint pain pack which contains the magnesium spray. I am getting a very strong metalic taste in my mouth which affects everything I eat. Is this normal?
2010-06-02 17:11:51
do you mean your using the spray in your mouth or spraying on joints?

Hello, I have suffered from a cancer called Mycosis Fungoidies for some 18 years now, having had lots of different treatments that have had varying degrees of success. I have for only a few weeks (6), been applying Transdermal Magnesium Chloride to my skin, well, I think it's just like magic. My skin leasions and plaques caused by the cancer have reduced very significantly, from patches of 30cm+ to patches of 3/4cm!!!! I never thought I'd ever wright a testimonial about one of 'these' products but hey I'm a convert now!! thankyou so very much, good health to your futures and God Bless You All.
