"..without magnesium, the calcium that we take in cannot be utilized."
While calcium is most commonly talked about when addressing the issue of bone health, the importance of magnesium is overlooked. What people do not realize is that without magnesium, the calcium that we take in cannot be utilized. This same calcium that is not used often just ends up in all the wrong places: on bones rather than strengthening them; hardening arteries and being deposited between joints, amongst other problems. Calcium is easily and readily available from our food whilst magnesium is not as easily available. What is even more detrimental to our health is to be magnesium deficient and unaware of being so, as a significant number of illnesses have been linked to it.

Elementz Magnesium products are all magnesium chloride based, with Elementz's source being the ancient Zechstein seabed. Magnesium chloride is the most bioavailable form of Magnesium, ie, best absorbed by your bodies. What sets our products apart is that they can all be used for transdermal therapies; you can absorb them through your skin.

This is what sets topical magnesium products apart from all other forms of magnesium supplementation is that they are absorbed transdermally (through your skin).
