Magnesium: The Most Important Mineral?

Without enzymes, your body could not carry out the myriad life-sustaining reactions that take place inside your cells every day.  And without magnesium, your enzymes would be incapacitated In fact, magnesium participates in over enzymatic reactions in the body more than any other mineral. These reactions regulate everything from nerve impulse transmission to muscular relaxation to bone mineralization, just to name a few.

Unfortunately, most of us aren’t getting the magnesium we need from diet alone. In fact, according to the World Health Organization, three-quarters of Americans do not meet the
Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) for magnesium (400 mg).

Your Amazing Skin

Taking magnesium orally is not a viable way for many people to meet their magnesium needs, because at clinically relevant dosages, magnesium supplements tend to have a laxative effect. With topical magnesium, however, the gastro-intestinal system is bypassed completely, so the magnesium is absorbed directly into the cells.

By nature, skin is semi-permeable, meaning it can absorb and excrete certain substances with remarkable efficiency. Transdermal patches are effective delivery systems for active constituents because the skin acts as a direct line to the cells. This is also the reason why topical magnesium is so efficiently absorbed.

Introducing Ancient Minerals New “Ultra” Line

Featuring MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) for enhanced magnesium delivery

Ancient Minerals “Ultra” line is designed to further facilitate magnesium absorption, by pairing magnesium chloride and other trace minerals with MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), a superior form of the mineral sulfur.

When applied topically, sulfur enhances cell membrane permeability and may facilitate more efficient uptake of magnesium ions. Yet sulfur also has health benefits of its own. This naturally occurring mineral, which is frequently found near hot springs and volcanic craters, is one of the key minerals featured in traditional transdermal mineral therapies such as balneotherapy (mineral bath therapy), thalassotherapy (seawater therapy), and pelotherapy (mud therapy).

Our new “Ultra” line is particularly well-suited for individuals with sensitive skin. A slightly lower magnesium concentration counteracts any possible skin irritation, while sulfur in the form of MSM adds skin-soothing properties. Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil Ultra utilizes premium distilled OptilMSM – the world’s purity standard for MSM.



Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil is a highly saturated solution of magnesium chloride and other ancient trace minerals in purified water.

Recommended by Dr. Mark Sircus, Ac. OMD, author of Transdermal Magnesium Therapy, Ancient Minererals Magnesium Oil is considered the gold standard by health care practitioners for rapidly restoring cellular magnesium levels through the skin.


This spray formula is designed to complement magnesium’s actions and further enhance its absorption.
MSM, a superior form of sulfur, is a naturally occurring mineral frequently found near hot springs and volcanic craters. Sulfur-containing mud baths have been shown effective for promoting joint flexibility in human clinical trials.2
Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oils are:

  • The best choice for efficiently restoring cellular magnesium levels.
  • Our highest potency topical magnesium.
  • Magnesium Oil: 100 mg magnesium per ml
  • Magnesium Oil Ultra: 63 mg magnesium plus 120 mg OptiMSM@per ml
  • Easily applied in a convenient spray.



Ancient Minerals Magnesium Gel Plus is a unique gelled formulation of magnesium chloride and other ancient trace minerals with biologically active organic aloe vera extract – specifically designed to remain on the surface of the skin to maximize its soothing benefits.
While aloe vera is well-known to support healthy skin, the dermal application of magnesium chloride has shown marked benefits for enhancing skin barrier function, speeding wound healing, and hydrating skin cells.


Magnesium Gel Ultra adds the power of MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) to this new gelled formula.
Mud baths containing sulfur, the primary component of MSM, have been found clinically effective for improving skin health — helping alleviate dryness, flaking, redness, and uneven skin tone.3 Ancient Minerals Magnesium Gels are

  • The best choice for supporting skin health.
  • Magnesium Gel: 100 mg magnesium per ml
  • Magnesium Gel Ultra: 65 mg magnesium plus 65 mg OptiMSM per ml
  • Perfect for use in massage.
  • Easily applied in smooth gel, which stays hydrated on the skin.


Ancient Minerals Magnesium Bath Flakes are dry flakes of magnesium chloride and other ancient trace minerals that dissolve immediately in warm water. The most relaxing way to get your magnesium, bath flakes are the best choice for achy muscles and joints.
Some of the most important research on transdermal magnesium therapy was conducted using magnesium chloride bath flakes, shown to effectively raise intracellular magnesium levels.

In addition to magnesium chloride and other ancient trace minerals, Magnesium Flakes Ultra also includes sulfur in the form of MSM. Not only is this addition designed to facilitate more efficient uptake of magnesium ions, but with its well-established joint-soothing properties, sulfur is the ideal complement to mineral salts.

Ancient Minerals Magnesium Bath Flakes are:

  • The best choice for achy muscles and joints: approximately 15 g magnesium per cup.
  • Effective for stress relief and relaxation.
  • Easily dissolved in warm water.



Ancient Minerals Magnesium Lotion is a smooth, quickly absorbed emulsion of magnesium chloride and other ancient trace minerals in a skin-nourishing base of certified organic coconut oil and shea butter, free of fragrances and formaldehyde-releasing preservatives.


Our Magnesium Lotion Ultra is our mildest Formulation – perfect for the most sensitive individuals, including children. The addition of MSM is designed to enhance absorption while providing its own skin-soothing properties.





Magnesium Lotion Goodnight builds on Magnesium Lotion Ultra with the addition of melatonin, a substance naturally produced by the body that regulates the sleep-wake cycle. Like MSM, melatonin easily penetrates the skin. Interestingly, melatonin also plays a role in supporting skin structure, and topical melatonin has been shown to improve skin healing.




Ancient Minerals Magnesium Lotions are:

  • The best choice for people who want a lower-concentration topical magnesium.
  • Magnesium Lotion: 33 mg magnesium per ml
  • Magnesium Lotion Ultra: 20 mg magnesium plus 70 mg OptiMSM’ per ml
