New readers may first want to read my original magnesium oil* article below.
For my readers who have already read about Ancient Minerals Magnesium OIL, I want to report on the new formulations combining Magnesium Oil and OptiMSM, which have been introduced over the past year.
The Ancient Minerals range is now complete with ULTRA versions of Oil, Lotion and Bath Flakes. The OIL ULTRA also has a travel size (125ml), which is very useful. I have previously written how I, (like most people), was naturally deficient in the critical mineral magnesium. My problems included cramps, athlete’s foot, a rash around my ankles in the winter and aching tensed muscles (especially the neck), all symptoms of a magnesium deficiency.
As a recap, Magnesium has many health benefits including: supporting heart conditions (AFIB), reducing tiredness & fatigue, normal muscle function, more energy, normal functioning of your nervous system, helps to maintain normal bones & teeth, helping the problems I had and many MANY more….I could go on forever!
I raved over the ORIGINAL Oil (as you can read below) but it was so powerful it did have a little sting and some had to wash it off after 30 minutes or dilute it (some complained!). Do not be put off….all is solved with OIL ULTRA.
The ‘ULTRA’ range contains a patented form of MSM (OptiMSM) that has been shown in published studies to dramatically improve the absorption of anything it is mixed with. It also substantially improves the absorption of Magnesium Oil. OptiMSM already has a large range of studies in its own right including: joints, liver, healthy skin and immune health. I believe it improves the usefulness of Magnesium OIL by up-to 400% and it does not sting!
I can state that the winter just gone, for me, is the first for having neither an outbreak of athlete’s foot nor the rash around my ankles. I still use the OIL ULTRA daily on my legs, neck and chest muscles (chest muscles for my heart valve recovery plan, for which magnesium is essential).
I have also started to use the Ancient Minerals Magnesium LOTION ULTRA on my face as part of my recent plan to keep and improve my skin’s youthfulness. It is looking good and I will report in 3-6 months on this. It’s fair to say I am a big magnesium fan!
Bath Flakes ULTRA are good for your personal spa time, especially for bathing children with emotional problems and elderly people with lower leg/feet problems. Using this in one of the foot-bath spas is a perfect and easy way to get magnesium and MSM into the lower limbs. Poor circulation and lack of magnesium is the cause of many foot and lower limb problems.
Last time I said “I often get asked which is best!” Now I can say I believe any from the ‘ULTRA range’. They are all great and all have specific benefits.
