Elektra Magnesium Oil
Elektra Magnesium Oil Spritz (strong formula) has a pleasant mandarin essential oil fragrance and can be used in massage to relax tight muscles and joints. It glides on easily and absorbs well. This body spray offers potent high concentration magnesium chloride plus botanical ingredients to enhance absorption, without the sticky irritating residue of just pure magnesium oil. It is not a moisturizer or skin conditioner like Elektra Magnesium Cream or Charge Lotion, however it delivers high concentration magnesium where required. Combine with Elektra Magnesium Cream or Charge Lotion if skin is dry. Great for loosening things up!
Use of Elektra Magnesium Oil Spritz
Packed full of nutrition, six sprays delivers approx. 300mg of elemental magnesium. Use Elektra Magnesium Oil Spritz in a relaxing muscle massage to relieve tight or sore muscles and joints, relax the nervous system, promote better sleep and recover from stress.
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.
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.
Apply Elektra Magnesium Cream first when skin is dry. This lubricates, conditions and prepares the skin for optimal absorption of magnesium when adding extra magnesium via Elektra Magnesium Oil Spritz. The better the condition of the skin the better the absorption of magnesium. The more lipids (fats) in the skin layer the less likely you are to feel any tingling sensation from the salts. Avoid application to broken skin. Magnesium Oil is not recommended for very young children as their skin can be too sensitive. In this case magnesium baths and magnesium cream are recommended.
INGREDIENTS – ALL NATURAL: Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate used is ‘food grade’ and tested in Australia by an independent laboratory, with no mercury and no lead detected. Each 180mL bottle of Elektra Magnesium Oil Spritz contains approximately 111 grams of magnesium chloride hexahydrate in solution of purified water (61.8%). In addition: Vegetable glycerine, Cocoyl proline, Caprylyl/Capryl glucoside, Potassium sorbate, Sodium borate, and the essential oils of Mandarin, Juniper berry and Rosalina. Six sprays delivers approx. 300mg of elemental magnesium.
SENSITIVE SKIN: Apply Elektra Magnesium Cream first when skin is dry to lubricate, condition and prepare the skin for optimal absorption of magnesium before adding extra magnesium via Elektra Magnesium Oil Spritz. The better the condition of the skin the better the absorption of magnesium. The more lipids (fats) in the skin layer the less likely the feeling of tingling sensation from the magnesium salts passing into skin. Avoid application to broken skin. If skin is very sensitive start with magnesium bathing and footsoaking, followed by Magnesium Cream application where tolerable (eg. arms and legs) and increase gradually to stronger applications as required.
