    Are Health And Wisdom's Magnesium Products inferior to the competition?

    Absolutely not! First because we have no competition. We believe in selling only the highest quality products to our customers and providing the best customer service possible! Our Magnesium Oil is a 30.6-31.3% solution of Magnesium Chloride extracted from pre-tested brine wells from the Great Salt Lake. This is purified and filtered to remove contaminants, creating a product that meets or exceeds USP standards. Because of this level of purity there is no danger of heavy metals, regardless of what other websites report. This product is crystal clear and free of contaminants. It is impossible to have a higher concentration of Magnesium in any Magnesium Chloride solution without adding other ingredients or misrepresenting the concentration. In order for Magnesium Chloride (liquid) to be designated as such, the concentration will be between 28.1 – 31.3%. Any weaker and it is not Magnesium Chloride; any stronger and it is not a liquid by definition. The dry (hexahydrate) form will have a concentration of 60.0 – 66.8% and it is easy to get confused if the suppliers do not report this accurately. Just how pure is our Magnesium Oil? It is used intravenously in dialysis patients!

    The original clinical trials proved Health and Wisdom's Magnesium Chloride is the best quality (US Pharmaceutical quality) to raise intracellular magnesium levels. This form is in its elemental state (meaning no conversion by the body is necessary) and it totally usable. Other forms of magnesium must be converted by the body to be effective. Every ounce of Health and Wisdom's Magnesium Oil contains 3182 mg of elemental magnesium. Other companies claim to have higher levels of magnesium and, while the volume is true, the available amount for absorption is not accurate. The amount of magnesium in a product means nothing if it is not elemental and absorbable. One example is Magnesium Oxide. As a dietary supplement only 4-10% of the amount listed on the product label is ever utilized by the body. Proof that just because a product contains something does not mean it is the best source for the human body.

    Much of the magnesium chloride used today had its origins in seawater. Salts, such as sodium chloride and magnesium chloride, are transported to the oceans by Earth's rivers as they drain the weathering continents. In that way, over millions of years, the oceans have become huge storage reservoirs of salts. Magnesium can be derived either from seawater or from magnesium-rich minerals deposited during the slow evaporation of ancient seas. It does not matter if magnesium chloride is "mined" from the Netherlands, the Dead Sea, the oceans, the Permian sea beds in the US, or the Great Salt Lake. What does matter is the purity. Do not be swayed by stories of ancient guarded wells - it is the same hole in the earth's crust that holds the magnesium chloride.

    Will the Magnesium Oil stain as other oils can?

    Although this product is named Magnesium OIL, the viscosity of this actually resembles that of water. The name was applied years ago as, once applied to the skin, there is an appearance of oil. When you pour some into the palm of your hand it almost 'rolls around' as oil does. Because of this, it mixes well with other liquids - well, except OILS!! In which case it separates just as water would when mixed with oils. You can add essential oils to this and customize it to suit you.

    Which is better, the Magnesium Oil, Magnesium Oil with Aloe Vera, Magnesium Gel, Magnesium Gel with Aloe Vera or Magnesium Bath Crystals?

    The delivery method DOES matter! In order of absorption inside the cells the delivery methods are:

    • Intravenous - not many people will do this regularly!
    • Foot Soak - using the Magnesium Oil
    • Tub Soak - using the Magnesium Bath Crystals
    • Direct skin application - using any of our Magnesium liquids - full strength or diluted
    • Oral - the least effective delivery method as ALL forms of Magnesium are LAXATIVES! Magnesium needs to stay in the colon 12 to 24 hours to be absorbed. By time one takes enough to be of value at the cellular level, diarrhea happens and the magnesium is gone. Also, the properties of ALL forms of Magnesium is relaxation. When taken daily the peristaltic muscles in the colon stop working - just as any other muscle will cease working when it is not used - and this creates a dependency on laxatives. The properly functioning colon is vital to health and many parents not only take oral magnesium (laxatives) daily but give these to their children.

    The best method for topical magnesium is What Will YOU Do? If you love a foot soak, great. If you prefer a tub soak, great. If you will only apply the product topically, great. BE CONSISTENT!

    First ask yourself, "How will I be using these products?"

    The Magnesium Oil works best diluted in a foot soak or sprayed on the skin and gently massaged in ~ full strength or diluted. For those with sensitive skin, diluting the Magnesium Oil is preferred. This may also be sprayed on the hair as a setting liquid. This is the strongest of the liquids and is as thin as water and may be applied by hand or with a sprayer (sold separately).

    The Magnesium Oil with Aloe Vera is about 75% the strength of the original Magnesium Oil and is good for those with sensitive skin for topical application. This can be diluted with water, if desired. Our Aloe Vera is certified organic, made from the whole leaf, and is four times stronger than commercial Aloe gel products. This is as thin as water and may be applied by hand or with a sprayer (sold separately).

    The Magnesium Gel is about 50% the strength of the Magnesium Oil, blends well with shampoos and conditioners, may be rubbed on the skin (some use this in place of their moisturizers), or it may be used in place of conditioners. This is thicker and easier to apply by hand.

    The Magnesium Gel with Aloe Vera 50% the strength of the Magnesium Oil, blends well with shampoos and conditioners, may be rubbed on the skin (some use this in place of their moisturizers), or may be used in place of conditioners. The addition of Aloe Vera makes this the best choice for those with REALLY sensitive skin.

    The Magnesium Bath Crystals are best used in the bath tub as they are super concentrated Magnesium Chloride and are the best choice for a high volume of water! (The Magnesium Oil can be used in the tub if you do not have the Magnesium Bath Crystals.) Because of the sea salts extreme caution should be used in any unit with jets.

    That said, if you want to soak your feet ~ choose the Magnesium Oil.

    For direct skin application any of the liquids are fine.

    If you want to mix something with shampoos & conditioners ~ choose the Magnesium Gel or Magnesium Gel with Aloe Vera.

    For a bath ~ choose the Magnesium Bath Crystals.

    It really is a matter of personal choice. All the products are great! For detailed instructions for use of the specific products, click the "How to Use" tab above within each product.

    How should I use the Magnesium Oil?

    The best way to get Magnesium into the cells of the body is through a foot soak with Health and Wisdom's Magnesium Oil. Using four ounces, enough water to cover the tops of the toes, soaking 15 to 30 minutes daily will significantly raise the intracellular magnesium! Always adjust the volume used in each bath to the individual. A child, the elderly, the very sick will require less Magnesium Oil in each foot soak. Also, adjust the time accordingly.

    Magnesium Oil may be applied directly to the skin, added to baths, used in foot soaks, added to hair and body care products, and massage oils to raise magnesium levels in the body. Magnesium Oil and Magnesium Gel work great for general wellness. Applying Magnesium Oil to sore areas and gently massaging brings relief to tense muscles. Be sure to apply this to the bottom of the feet for internal delivery!

    Massage therapists are incorporating the Magnesium Oil, Magnesium Oil with Aloe Vera, Magnesium Gel, and Magnesium Gel with Aloe Vera with their essential oils for use with their clients with great success. I have also used this for reflexology treatments and chiropractors and accupuncturists are also using these products. For detailed instructions for use of the specific products, click the "How to Use" tab above within each product. For more information visit the Magnesium Oil page.

    What is the process to increase intracellular Magnesium levels in 30 days?

    Doing one foot soak or one tub soak six days a week for 4 weeks will significantly raise your intracellular magnesium levels while lowering the intracellular calcium levels and increasing DHEA - the youth hormone! Magnesium is the calcium regulator and responsible for relaxation. This belongs inside the cells. Calcium is responsible for constriction and belongs outside the cells. When magnesium levels drop - due to stress of any kind - the calcium will flow to the inside of the cell where it does not belong to protect the cell integrity. Increasing the magnesium levels through the skin will correct both these conditions.

    • Foot Soak - use four ounces of Magnesium Oil and enough water, of a comfortable temperature, to cover the tops of your toes. Soak 15 to 30 minutes. Towel dry or wipe with a damp cloth to remove any residue. Flush the liquid. Use fresh liquid every day for optimal effect. Do this six days a week for four weeks. After this time, some people continue to do this every day while others do this 2-3 times a week for maintenance. Listen to your body. When subtle symptoms return (remember, stress lowers magnesium) simply return to your soaks.

    • Tub Soak - add 2-3 scoops (2-3 liquid ounces by measure) to a bath of comfortable water. Soak 15 to 30 minutes. Towel dry or shower off any residue, if desired. Do this six days a week for four weeks. After this time, some people continue to do this every day while others do this 2-3 times a week for maintenance. Listen to your body. When subtle symptoms return (remember, stress lowers magnesium) simply return to your soaks.

    • Some people alternate the foot soak or the tub soak. That is totally fine but only one or the other per day.

    • Direct application to the bottom of the feet and around the toes, and the hands and fingers is beneficial and, if done consistently will still increase the intracellular magnesium levels but this will not occur in 30 days. This may be the best for you and with time, the levels will still rise.

    What are the ingredients in the Magnesium Bath Crystals and are they USP?

    Magnesium Chloride Salts (hexahydrate) - the proven ingredient to raise intracellular levels of magnesium quickly and safely! Nothing is added.

    Magnesium Chloride by nature is very hygroscopic meaning it absorbs moisture from the air. Our Magnesium Bath Crystals are "prilled" to prevent this. Many have asked why this product is not USP like the Magnesium Oil. The prilling process dries the magnesium chloride beyond the concentration allowed for USP limits while not affecting the purity!

    What are the ingredients in the Magnesium Prills?

    Magnesium Prills are magnesium oxide and while this is the least effective form of magnesium for supplementation (only 4-10% of the mg listed on any supplement label will be absorbed) it is the only form that will alter the structure of water, reducing the surface tension creating a "thin" water that makes it more absorbable by the cells of the body. This improves hydration dramatically. This same principle also works for the bath (Magnesium Bath Ball) as the thinner water allows for better penetration through the skin or in the laundry (Laundry Pouch) to permeate the fibers of the fabric to lift out dirt and soften the clothes.

    Can I get too much Magnesium through these products?

    Except for patients with kidney failure, there is virtually NO illness which is not helped significantly by Magnesium! - Dr. Shealy

    As long as your kidneys are healthy and functioning properly any excess magnesium derived from the topical magnesium will be excreted. If you are experiencing diarrhea, simply reduce the amount you are using on a daily basis. Also, those who take oral magnesium products may find their stools are loose because the topical magnesium is so effective, the oral is too much for the intestines. We do NOT recommend any oral magnesium product as they are all laxatives! Would you take a little Exlax everyday?

    How much Magnesium is in the Magnesium Oil?

    There are 3182 mg of Magnesium in every ounce of Health & Wisdom's Magnesium Oil. That is 538 mg per teaspoon, 109.15 mg per mL! This is the maximum amount physically possible in Liquid Magnesium Oil (Chloride). The dry form of the Magnesium Chloride (Bath Crystals) is about double but that number would be reduced once the water is added. Some companies add other ingredients to their products raising the magnesium level - along with adding possible contaminants.

    If you use our spray bottles, there are 215 mg in eight "sprays" but it is important to remember that when used topically, it is recommended that one ounce per day be applied and why foot or tub soaks are easier.

    How much Magnesium is in the Magnesium Bath Crystals?

    There are 2993 mg of elemental Magnesium in every 1 ounce scoop (included with each container) of Health & Wisdom's Magnesium Bath Crystals. Using 2-3 scoops (equivalent to 2-3 liquid ounces) per bath you will have up to 8979 mg of elemental Magnesium available in each bath! When buying Magnesium Bath Crystals, check the dosage. The price per pound may be less but the price per bath can be excessive! Our Magnesium Bath Crystals contain ONLY Magnesium Chloride (the proven source for optimal absorption at the cellular level) and nothing is added. If a product is pure magnesium chloride, using 1-2 cups would be excessive and extremely wasteful. Shop smart.

    Can I take Magnesium Oil internally?

    You can take the Magnesium Oil internally as it is USP grade but, we do not recommend taking ANY magnesium internally for two reasons. First, all forms of magnesium are laxatives which by their very nature relax the muscles in the colon while drawing water into the colon creating an open water slide effect. In time the peristaltic muscles will stop working creating the dependency on laxatives. Second, magnesium needs to remain in the colon 12-24 hours for absorption but because magnesium is a laxative. When you take enough to be beneficial, diarrhea results requiring a lesser dosage. To stop the diarrhea, most people reduce the quantity of oral magnesium to bowel tolerance but it can take up to three years for this to significantly increase intracellular magnesium levels. Additionally, many do not realizing they are still taking a LAXATIVE. WHY DO THIS when topical supplementation is easier and more effective! If you are taking oral magnesium and begin using our topical nagnesium products, you may develop diarrhea as the topical is absorbed faster, making the oral magnesium too much. Why wait up to 3 years when you can significantly raise magnesium at the cellular level in one month with a foot or tub soak??

    Soaking your feet OR soaking in a tub 6 days a week for 4 weeks, will significantly raise cellular Magnesium levels. After that most people can soak two to three times per week OR apply the Magnesium Oil or Gel products DAILY to whole body particularly the soles of the feet, across the heart, and any place else that suits one’s fancy!

    What is the Science?

    • The human body is made up of 75 to 100 trillion cells
    • Cells are supposed to have a specific shape and gap between them
    • Each one of these cells have the ability to communicate and receive messages from other cells
    • 1% of the Magnesium in the body is in the blood and except for extreme cases of acute alcoholism, starvation, or diabetic acidosis a deficiency will never be discovered through a blood test
    • Magnesium is supposed to be the 7th most abundant mineral in the body
    • Magnesium is responsible for the relaxation phase of the muscles and the heart
    • Magnesium is required in over 325 enzymatic processes in the body
    • One function of Magnesium is to regulate the nerves

    FUNCTIONS OF MAGNESIUM

    Magnesium (the relaxer) is required at the center of every cell in the body. When the cells are low in magnesium, calcium (the constrictor) moves to the center of the cell to protect the cell integrity. This causes EVERY CELL in the body to be tight. It is little wonder we suffer from muscle stiffness, headaches, insomnia, rage, and more! Magnesium is required for the proper function of over 325 enzymatic processes in the body. Magnesium is needed to keep the brain, nerves, flexors, motor nerves, spinal nerves and functions throughout the system functioning properly. Passion cools under the influence of magnesium. Negative passions such as hatred, temper outbursts, jealousy, quarrels, resentment, bitterness, hostility, selfishness, greed NEED MAGNESIUM!

    Clinical Trials

    Dr. C. Norman Shealy, MD PhD performed clinical trials to determine if Magnesium Chloride (Oil) would facilitate absorption of Magnesium through the skin and reach the cellular level. He recruited 16 individuals with low intracellular magnesium levels to participate in the following experiment. The protocol/consent form explaining study this study is as follows:

    “Our purpose was to research whether or not magnesium was absorbed through the skin. Exclusion factors included anyone taking oral or IV magnesium during the last 6 weeks and smokers.”

    Individuals sprayed a solution of 50% Magnesium Oil over the entire body once daily for a month and did a 20 minute foot soak in Magnesium Oil once daily for a month. Subjects had a baseline Intracellular Magnesium Test documenting their deficiency and another post-Intracellular Magnesium Test after 1 month of daily soaks.

    The results were impressive. Twelve of sixteen patients, 75%, had significant improvements in intracellular magnesium levels after only four weeks of foot soaking and skin spraying.

    This is the first known proof of absorption of Magnesium through the skin! - Dr. Shealy

    Why Topical Magnesium?

    "Most people are deficient in magnesium and transdermal is the best and fastest way to use it. Furthermore, transdermal is the only way which has been proven to raise DHEA.” Dr C. Norman Shealy

    The skin is the largest organ of the body and anything put ON the skin is absorbed IN the body! If you would not eat something, do not put it on your skin as it WILL be absorbed! A simple test - rub a clove of garlic on the bottom of your foot, within SECONDS you will taste it!

    All the nerves in the body end in the feet. Assuming there is no foot injury any sore spot on the feet is a result of inflamed nerves to the corresponding organ! This chart maps the entire body. Similar points are found on the hands and ears as well!

    Reflexology is based on this science. When properly worked through deep tissue massage the nerves are relaxed and the relief is sent to the organs in distress! This is the same delivery path the Magnesium takes to increase magnesium at the cellular level. A 20-30 minute foot soak in two to four ounces of Health And Wisdom’s Magnesium Oil will begin delivering magnesium to every cell in the body INSTANTLY!

    What are the benefits of Magnesium Prill Water?

    Experience the Sensation of Prill Water

    Magnesium Prills treat water by alkalinizing it, decreasing surface tension, and creating smaller water clusters. Smaller water clusters allow for better penetration in and around everything they touch.

    Ordinary tap water contains less than 10% of properly structured hexagonal water that can be used for hydrating cells. Magnesium Prills change ordinary water into “thin” water (hexagonal), which assimilates into the body cells. Magnesium Prill Water will enhance your nutrient absorption and toxin elimination thus improving your health. Prill water is physically "thinner" which allows greater penetration in and around the cells of the body and when each cell is properly hydrated and the correct gap between each cell restored, the communication between cells is enhanced. When cells communicate properly everything in the body works better.

    Prill Water Features

    • Provides superior hydration
    • Enhances nutrient absorption
    • Improves detoxification
    • Improves metabolic efficiency
    • Improves cellular communication
    • Readily used by plants and people
    • Prill water has an alkalizing potential to raise your body's pH
    • Creates structure within the body
    • Forms an integral part of the cell membrane and interior of the cell of living organisms

    Magnesium Prill beads can be used for drinking, cooking, plants, washing vegetables, as a moisturizing spray, therapeutic bathing and laundry pouches and more. Variation in prill bead color is normal and part of the manufacturing process. For more information visit the Magnesium Prill page!

    Back to Top

    How should I use the Magnesium Prills?

    Use Prill Water EVERYDAY!

    Use Magnesium Prills to treat all your water. Plants, children, and adults love this water. Use it for your cooking, making tea, drinking, washing vegetables, as a moisturizing spray, therapeutic bathing, laundry, and plants as well!

    In the Laundry

    Improve your health by not having chemical residue on your clothing – and ultimately on your skin to be absorbed. Our bodies absorb everything put on the skin, if you would not eat it do not put it to your skin!

    As a laundry pouch

    Treating water with Magnesium Prills will soften the water and actually make the water 'thinner'. This allows greater penetration in and around the fibers of all fabrics reducing the amount of detergent and softener needed! Clothes smell great - you may want to rewash your wardrobe!!

    Make your own laundry pouch! Use heavy cotton mesh material, such as Duck canvas, sew a pouch ~ leaving an opening for the prills ~ and put about 1 pound of Magnesium Prills in the pouch. Sew closed. It is a good idea to double stitch the corners. For normally soiled clothing, a very small amount of detergent (all natural is preferred) may be necessary. Adjust this amount for heavily soiled clothing. Pre-treat any stubborn stains.

    Don't want to make your own? No longer a problem, we have the Laundry Pouch already made with Magnesium Prills ~ ready to use! Simply toss the laundry pouch into the washer as it is filling with water. Start with 10% of the amount of detergent you normally use and adjust as needed. You will need to pre-treat any stains as usual. Leave this in through the entire cycle.

    Between loads set the pouch to the side, air drying the pouch is fine. Do NOT store in an air tight container; do NOT put in dryer. If multiple loads are being washed, leave the pouch in the washer until you are finished with all the loads then set it out to air dry.

    Remove the Laundry Pouch if you use chlorine bleach as it weakens the FABRIC. Watch for wear in the pouch fabric and repair or replace as wear occurs to save the prills! You will still need to pre-treat any stains or heavily-soiled items! Use up to 90% LESS Detergent - if you use any at all!

    In the Bathroom - Treat your bath water

    Adding the Magnesium Prills 2# Bath bag to bath water while filling the tub provides the benefit of thinner bath water! Whatever you add to the bath water works better!! One Magnesium Prills Bath Ball will last for years!

    To experience the "ULTIMATE BATH"

    • Put the 2# Magnesium Prills Bath Ball in the bathtub while filling it with hot water (a comfortable bath temperature, of course). Once the tub is full, remove the Bath Ball. Do NOT store in an air tight container.
    • Add 2 - 3 small scoops (enclosed in each container) of Magnesium Bath Crystals into the tub.
    • Add one rounded teaspoon each of Magnesium Snow and the Fine Ground Mica Crystals.
    • Soak 20 - 30 minutes and enjoy the Magic of Magnesium! Note: Initially you may experience extreme relaxation and even feel tired. Step out of the tub CAREFULLY!
    • Apply Magnesium Gel liberally to complete your Ultimate Bath!
    • Drink plenty of Prill water after soaking to stay hydrated.

    35 pounds
    up to 284 baths

    Always adjust the volume used in each bath to the individual. A child, the elderly, the very sick will require less Magnesium Bath Crystals in each bath. Also, adjust the time accordingly.

    How should I use the Magnesium Snow?

    This product is so cool! As part of the "ultimate bath", add about one rounded teaspoon to a bath and your feet will float! Yup, right off the floor of the tub! One man experienced this response 11 out of 12 baths! Truly amazing.

    Magnesium Snow (Magnesium Carbonate) is a natural mineral that possesses mild astringent, detoxifying properties. When used as a face mask, Magnesium Snow may produce a more youthful, healthy complexion as it helps to smooth and soften (normal and dry) skin. Magnesium Snow may be used on any area of concern. Add Magnesium Snow to your bath water to get the benefit of smooth, soft skin for your whole body. One large jar provides enough Magnesium Snow for 25+ baths and many, many facials!

    For a mild cleanse, make a paste with Prill water and Magnesium Snow - apply to the face (or area of concern) and allow to dry. Rinse with warm water. For a deep, intense cleanse make a paste with Magnesium Snow and diluted or full strength Magnesium Oil. Apply and let sit for 5-15 minutes. Rinse with cool water. Do not start with full strength Magnesium Oil!

    To a moistened tooth brush add Magnesium Snow and 4-5 drops of Magnesium Oil to tighten gums and remove plaque! Make a paste with Magnesium Oil and Magnesium Snow to whiten teeth and improve teeth and gums.
    You also get added Magnesium this way as well! Adding this to your oral hygiene routine is wonderful for the teeth and gums! Some make a paste with Magnesium Oil and Magnesium Snow. This will also whiten (naturally) white teeth! For more information see the Magnesium Snow page!

    How should I use the Laminar Mica Crystals?

    WHAT IS MICA, ANYWAY?

    Mica comes from a flat thin sheet stone found in the Rocky Mountains. The structure of this unique product has the capacity to collect and transmit vibrational frequencies from the ambient free energies of the universe, which are required for healing the human body. When Mica comes in contact with the human body or is in bowls around your home or business, the natural energy pulses from Mica Crystals flood the area and benefit everyone. Users are known to experience increased energy levels, less pain, and better moods! To make room for this good universal energy, daily walk barefoot in the grass (or sand or dirt) to discharge built up static electricity and become truly grounded to Mother Earth!

    Intuitives say that Mica Crystals have the power to significantly reverse the aging process, restore function to many parts of the body and reduce arthritic pain. Mica Crystals do not contain any Magnesium.

    Some of the uses of Mica

    *The fabric used to make the items below needs to be a very dense weave - 500-600 thread count - and preferably 100% Cotton, Wool, or Silk. You do not need a thick layer of Mica. Sewing "channels" into the fabric will hold the Mica in place better than a wide open unit.

    • Place Mica in bowls around your home or office to provide calming energy to all who enter. Use this in every room by placing 1 to 2 inches in a small dish (4 to 6 inch candy dish works great). Place out of reach of children and animals!
    • Make small bags filled with mica and place behind curtains or other out-of-the-way places.
    • Add Mica to your bath water.
    • Place some Mica in your crisper.
    • Put some in a bowl on your counter top and place your produce on top of the Mica to ripen it faster and help it stay fresh longer.
    • Place your bottles of supplements on top of the Mica to increase good energy.
    • Sprinkle Mica in your shoes for all day energy to your whole body.
    • Make a pad or pillow to lay over sore joints. A single pillow case works nicely for this.
    • Make a sleeper and put it under the bottom sheet in your bed. Two twin sheets or one double sheet folded in half work great for this.
    • Make a pet pad - animals love the energy of Mica.
    • Do not forget your vehicle! Make a pad to sit on while driving.

    Virtually anyplace you want good energy is the perfect place for Mica! For more information see the Mica page.

    How should I use the Fine Ground Mica Crystals?

    This is used in popular natural mineral makeup products and you can now add that healthy, glistening glow to your skin at home for a fraction of the cost. This is the powdered form of the Laminar Mica and can be used the same way! This may be added to the tub for the "ultimate" bath experience! One jar provides enough Fine Ground Mica Crystals for over 25 baths. Simply add 1 rounded teaspoon to your bath for increased energy levels! We need good, high-vibration electricity to perform at our peak. To release static electricity that builds up in the body, walk or jog barefoot on the lawn. This will discharge and release built up static electricity and allow new electrical vibration to come from the atmosphere. This is pure universal electricity that operates all the parts and organs of the body. Pure energy cannot enter the body if static electricity is present, which should be grounded through the feet to keep a continual flow of good energy on hand. For more information see the Mica page.

    May I use these products on my children? How much?

    YES!! Children react very positively to having Magnesium products in their bath and rubbed on their skin. Most instructions are based on a 150 pound adult. Simply divide the recommended amount by 150 and multiply by your child's weight to achieve the optimum amount for them. This also works for larger adults! The Mica is very soothing for children as well!

    Giving oral magnesium to children is setting them up for a life time of laxative dependency. Topical is safer and more effective!

    May I use these products on my animals?

    YES!! Be sure to adjust for the weight variance. Most instructions are based on a 150 pound adult. Simply divide the recommended amount by 150 and multiply by your pet's weight to achieve the optimum amount for them. Apply the Magnesium Oil or Magnesium Gel to their feet and ears for delivery throughout the system. If there are areas of concern, direct application is fine! This also works for larger animals! The Prill water is NOT recommended for cats. Animals gravitate to the Mica as well! Making a sleeper for them is a wonderful treat.

    Note: Magnesium is a laxative for humans AND animals. If your pet can lick the area where you apply the magnesium, their stools can become loose. You have been warned.

    Are Epsom Salts the same as Magnesium Bath Crystals?

    NO!! Epsom Salts are Magnesium Sulfate and are great as a detoxifier while you absorb a little Magnesium. Magnesium Bath Crystals are Magnesium Chloride and the dry form of our Magnesium Oil. When used as directed it loads the body with elemental (absorbable) magnesium while detoxifying a little. Because they work opposite of each other we do not recommend you use them in the same bath.

    There is no need to purchase added ingredients or use excessive amounts of product making the price per bath much higher than is needful.

    Can I make my own Magnesium Oil from the Magnesium Bath Crystals?

    You can try but you will not end up with our Magnesium Oil. Our Magnesium Oil is mined as a liquid and goes through an extensive purification process, that does NOT involve bleach as many processes do, to achieve the quality designation of USP, United States Pharmacopoeia (pharmaceutical) grade. Our product is free of harmful contaminants and heavy metals - going way beyond what the government requires for purity. Our Magnesium Oil is used in intravenous dialysis procedures - it is THAT PURE! When applying Magnesium Oil topically you should want the purest form possible.

    There is a high-heat process involved to create the Magnesium Bath Crystals from the Magnesium Oil to remove the moisture from the product. To revert the Crystals to liquid requires much more than simply adding water and you will not have USP Magnesium Oil.

    Magnesium chloride is hygroscopic meaning it draws moisture from the atmosphere and why we recommend the Bath Crystals be stored in an air tight container - particularly if you live in a humid climate - to prevent the Crystals from turning into liquid before you want them to. Using the Magnesium Bath Crystals in a bath is great as they are super concentrated and the volume of water is significant so there is no concern in using "too much" per soak.

    To obtain the highest, topical elemental (absorbable) magnesium, use our Magnesium Oil. For those with sensitive skin, use our Magnesium Oil with Aloe Vera, Magnesium Gel, or Magnesium Gel with Aloe Vera.

    Note: The hygroscopic nature of Magnesium is one of the reasons we do not recommend ANY oral magnesium as it relaxes the colon and draws moisture in to flush fecal matter. You are basically creating a wide open water slide! Continued use of oral magnesium will result in laxative dependency. Now, if you are 80 years old, I will not try to talk you out of your laxative. BUT, if you are younger or a parent giving oral magnesium to your child - be aware, you are giving them LAXATIVES!

    Other companies claim their Magnesium Chloride (oil) is USP. Is this true?

    Independent Testing: USP (United States Pharmacopeia) Designation and Testing. There are two types of products labeled with the USP designation: one that guarantees metal and contaminant free products, and all the others. Sadly, not all products that state they are USP are safe to use.
    Health And Wisdom’s Magnesium Oil is the very same material used in pharmaceutical products – some of which are a part of literally keeping a large number of people with certain disorders alive.

    Health and Wisdom only uses Magnesium Chloride that is independently tested for purity by a lab adhering to ALL the pharmaceutical standards of the US Pharmacopeia including its Section of General Notices & Requirements.

    Below are the differences in the types of products labeled USP that are available. Manufacturers who use certain outside labs for USP testing are asking for results based on USP monograph and nothing else. When a company submits their product with these instructions, you would like to presume the materials were already tested for heavy metals and other contaminants. In too many cases, you would be wrong. USP monograph testing on its own does not test for every potential concern and this is how products can be labeled as USP yet still contain harmful ingredients.

    Health & Wisdom’s Magnesium Chloride

    Magnesium Chloride Tested to USP monograph

    Tested by a lab staffed by PhD Chemists who have documented training to the USP test methods and ALL the General Notices & Requirements of USP

    Potentially tested in a lab staffed by lab techs who have no experience with the test methods

    FDA registered facility

    No oversight by environmental regulatory agencies

    Equipment measures parts per billion level and its detection limits in the matrix are validated (proven)

    Equipment may measure in the parts per billion but there is no documentation to prove results are valid, accurate or precise

    Qualifies (tests) raw materials for heavy metals and other contaminants NOT listed on USP monograph such as Arsenic, Mercury, Chromium, Aluminum

    Does not test raw materials for heavy metals or contaminants; limits the test to only what is listed on USP monograph

    Specializes in testing the materials including saline (salt) matrixes

    If tested by an environmental lab or a manufacturer not following USP General Notices and Requirements, their specialties are Measuring metals in water, soils, and wastes

    Validates test results - Validation is an extensive process involving proving the accuracy, precision, robustness, specificity, detection limit, quantitation limit and linearity range for identifying the analytes in question in the saline matrix.

    If tested by an environmental lab or a manufacturer not following USP General Notices and Requirements, no test result validation is performed.

    As part of General Notices & Requirements, there are regular analytical performance verifications to demonstrate the product is consistent and there is traceability to each and every unique lot of material tied to its Certificate of Analysis.

    Material sold as USP but only tested to USP monograph has often been tested only once or twice and that Certificate of Analysis is presented as representative with NO documentation of the consistency of the product. There is NO traceability from the producer to the end user.

Is Magnesium Oil healthy and safe for my teeth and gums?

History of Salt for Medicinal Use

The use of salt for health care purposes has a long history, dating back to some of the oldest medical scripts in existence, according to the Science Tribune. Ancient Egyptian papyruses from 1600 B.C. provide recipes for a range of medicinal treatments using salt, particularly in anti-infectives. The ancient Greeks used it for similar purposes, and already knew – more than 2,000 years ago – that it had anti-inflammatory effects.

How Salt Inhibits Dental Bacteria

So, how does a salt water mouth rinse work to reduce dental bacteria? Burning your tongue on a hot drink or hot food is zero fun. One surprising thing that could soothe your pain? A salt water rinse. Rinse your mouth with a solution of 1 teaspoon of salt and a cup of warm water. “It’s actually very soothing,” says Dr. [Sherri] Worth[, a celebrity cosmetic dentist]. The salt can draw infection to the surface of the tissue, where the body eliminates it, and salt helps neutralize the acidic environment that fosters bacteria and it temporarily increases the pH balance of your mouth, creating an alkaline environment in which bacteria struggle to survive. Because they – along with most other natural species – generally prefer an acidic environment, using the rinse often enough can make it difficult for bacteria to breed.

Healing Properties of Salt Water

The use of salt also promotes healing, so it's ideal to use it 24 hours after minor dental surgery to help your mouth recover. It is an isotonic solution, which means it contains the same salts and minerals our bodies do in equal concentrations. For this reason, it doesn't irritate the mucous membranes as a medicinal mouthwash might, which is why many dentists recommend it as a gentle healing aid after a procedure.

The salt itself does not damage tooth enamel, but sodium and carbohydrates often go hand-in-hand, especially when it comes to processed foods. Oral bacteria feasts on simple sugars and produces tough acids whenever you consume any food or beverage that contains carbohydrates. The acids are kept in contact with tooth enamel by plaque that forms in your mouth throughout the day. The longer it remains in your mouth, the more time the tooth enamel becomes damaged.

Bread, pizza, pasta, and salty snacks are among the top sources of sodium in the American diet. While most of these foods are relatively low in sugar, some of their starches can be broken down into simple sugars by the enzymes in your mouth. As your body breaks them down, the starches generate the same damaging effects to your teeth as sugar would.

Sodium can also weaken your teeth. A lot like bones, tissues make up your teeth rely on calcium to give them structure and strength. A high sodium intake is shown to increase the amount of calcium your body disposes of through urine, which can lead to osteoporosis and tooth loss.

Is there an alternative to sodium chloride for optimal oral health?

YES!! Health and Wisdom’s Magnesium Oil, USP. Magnesium is an essential mineral and a cofactor for hundreds of enzymes. Magnesium is involved in many physiologic pathways, including energy production, nucleic acid and protein synthesis, ion transport, cell signaling, and also has structural functions. (More information.) Unlike sodium, the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats to produce energy requires numerous magnesium-dependent chemical reactions. Magnesium is required by the adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-synthesizing protein in mitochondria. ATP, the molecule that provides energy for almost all metabolic processes, exists primarily as a complex with magnesium (MgATP). Magnesium is the calcium modulator, dissolves plaque and tartar, and does not weaken teeth like sodium chloride does. Adding 5-6 drops of Health and Wisdom’s Magnesium Oil USP to a damp toothbrush will keep teeth, gums, and tongue healthy.
