Magnesium: Essential Mineral, Deficiency’s Problem

• Anxiety and Panic attacks- Magnesium (Mg) normally keeps adrenal stress hormones under control.

• Asthma- Both histamine production and bronchial spasms increase with Mg deficiency.

• Blood clots- Mg has an important role to play in preventing blood clots and keeping the blood thin-much like aspirin but without the side effects.

• Bowel disease- Mg deficiency slows down the bowel causing constipation, which could lead to toxicity and malabsorption of nutrients, as well as colitis.

• Cystitis- Bladder spasms are worsened by Mg deficiency.

• Depression-Serotonin, which elevates moods, is dependent on Mg. A Mg-deficient brain is also more susceptible to allergens, foreign substances that can cause symptoms similar to mental illness.

• Detoxification- Mg is crucial for the removal of toxic substances and heavy metals such as aluminum and lead.

• Diabetes- Mg enhances insulin secretion, facilitating sugar metabolism. Without Mg insulin is not able to transfer glucose into cells. Glucose and insulin build up in the blood causing various types of tissue damage.

• Fatigue- Mg-deficient patients commonly experience fatigue because dozens of enzyme systems are under-functioning. An early symptom of Mg deficiency is frequently fatigue.

• Heart disease- Mg deficiency is common in people with heart disease. Mg is administered in hospitals for acute myocardial infarction and cardiac arrhythmia. Like any other muscle, the heart muscle requires Mg. Mg is also used to treat angina, or chest pain.

• Hypertension- With insufficient Mg, spasm of blood vessels and high cholesterol occur, both of which lead to blood pressure problems.

• Hypoglycemia- Mg keeps insulin under control; without Mg episodes of low blood sugar can result.

• Insomnia- Sleep-regulating melatonin production is disturbed without sufficient Mg.

• Kidney Disease- Mg deficiency contributes to atherosclerotic kidney failure. Mg deficiency creates abnormal lipid levels and worsening blood sugar control in kidney transplant patients.

• Migraine- Serotonin balance is Mg-dependent. Deficiency of serotonin can result in migraine headaches and depression.

• Musculoskeletal conditions- Fibrositis, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, eye twitches, cramps and chronic neck and back pain may be caused by Mg deficiency and can be relieved with Mg supplements.

• Nerve problems- Mg alleviates peripheral nerve disturbances throughout the whole body, such as migraines, muscle contractions, gastrointestinal spasms, and calf, foot and toe cramps. It is also used in treating central nervous symptoms of vertigo and confusion.

• Obstetrics and Gynecology- Mg prevents Premenstrual Syndrome; prevents dysmenorrhea (cramping pain during menses); is important in the treatment of infertility; and alleviates premature contractions, preeclampsia, and eclampsia in pregnancy.

• Osteoporosis- Use of calcium with Vitamin D to enhance calcium absorption without a balancing amount of Mg causes further Mg deficiency, which triggers a cascade of events leading to bone loss.

• Raynaud’s Syndrome- Mg helps relax the spastic blood vessels that cause pain and numbness of the fingers.

• Tooth decay- Mg deficiency causes an unhealthy balance of phosphorus and calcium in saliva, which damages teeth.


Magnesium is a critical macro nutrient for human health. It is essential to more than 300 cellular processes, some of which include muscle & nerve function, heart rhythm, and peristalsis (muscular contractions of the digestive system).  The latest government study shows a staggering 68% of Americans do not consume the recommended daily intake of magnesium.  Magnesium deficiency is a health problem of first cause.

Magnesium is also a very important part of structural integrity. Approximately 50% of total body magnesium is found in the bones. Also, magnesium is required for your body to properly absorb calcium, and thus maintain strong bones & ligaments.

Since the human body is run by electricity, any disturbance in the flow of this electricity through the nervous system typically causes a great deal of pain and illness. Magnesium is responsible for the movement of electrically charged ions through the blood, as well as across nerve cell membranes. Healthy levels of magnesium maintain adequate electrical communication throughout the body.  Magnesium regulates hundreds of enzyme systems. By regulating enzymes controlling intracellular calcium, magnesium affects blood flow, an important factor in several critical illnesses.

Transdermal refers to absorption through the skin. This has been found to be the easiest and most effective method of acquiring magnesium. Wherever our transdermal magnesium solution is applied to the skin, it is absorbed very quickly.

A secondary application can be for any kind of “muscle” pain and tension or a highly calcified area like joint pain.  This proprietary solution, when  spot-applied to any point of the body, helps bring quick results.

1. Spray into armpits, over the heart, where the legs meet the torso, behind the knees, and onto the tops of the feet. Massage in. These areas target the lymph system.
2. Spraying onto the chest nourishes the heart, which uses magnesium to maintain normal rhythm.
3. Use during a massage, releases muscle tension and also helps to increase absorption.
4. Spray directly onto area where there is muscle pain/tension/stress or aching joints for instant relief.
5. After shower or bath spray over body generously.


Q1. How quickly does Max Magnesium absorb into my skin? Will it smell?

A1. Max Magnesium absorbs almost immediately upon contact. Applying 1 or 2 sprays of magnesium oil and massaging it into your skin will speed up the absorption of the magnesium, and leave almost no residue. A slight “oily” feeling will occur if a lot is applied.  This is not an oil based product and has no odor.

Q2. I experienced a slight rash and tingling sensation at the location I applied the magnesium oil. Why?

A2. The tingling sensation is a result of the magnesium entering the skin, which is harmless, and isn’t always felt. Rashes occur because of a concentration of toxic substances in your body, the rash being the point of detox your body is using to eliminate them. These are also harmless. In order to prevent rashes from occurring, simply dilute the magnesium oil 1:1 with pure water. Remember, this is a very concentrated product.

Q3. What is the maximum daily dosage of Max Magnesium?

A3. There is none. By spraying magnesium onto your skin, rather than eating it, you bypass the problem of the gastrointestinal barrier. Excess magnesium in your intestines is not absorbed, just eliminated. Transdermal magnesium is largely absorbed and used by your cells on location.

Q4. Are there any precautions to using Max Magnesium?

A4. Do not apply it to your eyes or into your nose. This would cause irritation. Applying magnesium oil onto open wounds will cause stinging, but will also increase speed of healing.

Dr. Norman Shealy documents in his book, “Holy Water, Sacred Oil”, almost ninety health issues that are directly related to magnesium deficiency. Additionally, Dr. Shealy draws a strong correlation between magnesium levels and DHEA levels. He has also determined that when the body is presented with adequate levels of magnesium at the cellular level, the body will begin to naturally produce DHEA.

Since DHEA is the primary bio-marker for aging, the long term use of large doses of magnesium in a usable form will significantly raise DHEA levels and thus produce true Age Reversal results. Dr. Shealy refers to DHEA as the Master Hormone.

With MAX Magnesium, you can significantly affect the many symptoms of magnesium deficiency, including such systemic conditions as osteoporosis. Reports indicate that after prolonged use of Max Magnesium, clients with serious bone density issues have rebuilt bones and increase flexibility.

More frequently, sufferers of arthritis in its many forms have turned to transdermal  Max Magnesium for near-instant relief from pain. Long term users of transdermal Max Magnesium have experienced an improvement in the health of their bones, ligaments, and the afflicted joints.  Some people have reported the regrowth of deteriorated bone, cartilage, and even a regeneration of enamel on their teeth. The heart, circulatory system, and nervous system all depend heavily on magnesium.

•Magnesium is the mineral of rejuvenation, and prevents the calcification of our organs and tissues that is characteristic of the old-age related degeneration of our body.

•Magnesium deficiency contributes to an exaggerated response to immune stress and oxidative stress is the consequence of the inflammatory response.

•Prolonged use of magnesium will prevent chronic complications of diabetes.

•Evidence is mounting that deficient levels of magnesium contribute to the heavy metal deposition in the brain that precedes Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease.

•Cholesterol cannot be synthesized without magnesium and cholesterol is a vital component of hormones.

•Women who suffer from premature menopause, or an early failure of the ovaries report that magnesium often helps fight the crashing fatigue that often comes at the beginning of premature or early menopause by boosting energy levels.

•Diuretics help flush magnesium as well as potassium from the body. The resulting magnesium deficiency hinders potassium use by the cells. Magnesium deficiency keeps people from replenishing potassium.
