Remineralize your body, revitalize your health

Magnesium is essential

An essential mineral and cofactor in over 300 biochemical processes, magnesium supports the health of nearly every system in the human body. Magnesium helps maintain heart rhythm and blood pressure balance, builds strong bones, promotes nervous system and muscle health, and is essential to energy production. Every cell in your body needs magnesium to thrive, and without enough, your health will inevitably suffer. Yet because its symptoms are often attributed to other causes, magnesium deficiency often goes unrecognized. 

75% of adults aren’t getting enough

Magnesium is found in unprocessed foods like leafy greens, whole grains, nuts and seeds, as well as in mineral-rich water. But it’s increasingly difficult to get enough magnesium from dietary sources—even if you eat a primarily whole foods diet—due to mineral depletion in our soils and drinking water. On top of this, our lifestyles abundant in stress, sugar, caffeine and excess calcium all work to deplete magnesium at a rapid pace, leaving many of us in a state of deficiency and less-than-optimal health.

The solution goes beyond skin deep

Replenishing depleted magnesium levels is not as simple as taking a supplement, because magnesium can be difficult to absorb through the digestive tract. The solution? Topical magnesium, which restores magnesium at the cellular level by utilizing your body's largest, most efficient organ of absorption—your skin. Ancient Minerals® offers a wide range of ultra-pure topical magnesium solutions, including lotions, highly-concentrated magnesium oils, bath salts and gels.

Top 5 reasons you need magnesium

As the second most abundant mineral within human cells, magnesium helps your body stay balanced, perform well under stress and maintain a general state of vitality. A lack of magnesium can impact everything from your mood and energy levels to your brain, heart and bone health. Here are some of the top benefits of increasing your magnesium levels.


Often called the “relaxation mineral,” magnesium calms nerves and muscles, supports healthy brain function and improves mood by regulating neurotransmitters that send messages throughout your brain and nervous system.


Magnesium supports the healthy function of muscles, including your heart. It helps muscles relax and contract properly and has been shown to help regulate heart rhythm. Magnesium also supports healthy blood pressure and circulation.


Magnesium is an important component of strong, healthy bones. Studies have shown a correlation between higher intakes of magnesium and higher bone mineral density.


Arguably the best natural sleep aid, magnesium assists in slowing metabolic processes as your body prepares for sleep. It also helps regulate key hormones that help you fall—and stay—asleep. 


Magnesium is perhaps the most important nutrient involved in the body’s energy production processes. Magnesium activates ATP, which is responsible for converting food into energy.

Why topical magnesium?

Thalassotherapy, the practice of harnessing the health-enhancing properties of mineral-rich waters, dates back to ancient times when bathing in seawater was known to promote healing and rejuvenation.

Humans have long used the skin as a direct pathway into the body, and only recently have we begun to understand the science behind it. 

Modern research shows that the topical application of magnesium is an effective and convenient way to increase your magnesium levels beyond what is possible with oral supplements.

Topical magnesium can be applied directly where you need it most, with immediate results.
