In this instance, as my doctor rubbed my Achilles Tendon and feet with the gel, I immediately felt a burn, a steady flash of warmth. This feeling might be familiar to those who are big fans of Epsom Salts, for the salts are famous for muscle relaxation. The muscle relaxation in question stems from the ionic transfer of magnesium into the body, a sensation that can be identified through the heat you feel on your skin. Magnesium itself is an essential mineral to optimal healing, and the gel can allow one to isolate the area of the body you want to attack and allow it to soak in and do its bidding. While we can eat a good portion of the mineral through foods such as hemp seed, many of us are deficient and oral consumption does not necessarily place the mineral where you want it. In this, a quick rub down and the eventual white brine left on the skin allows for a loss of pain/inflammation.
Since this initial treatment, I have purchased her brand and used the gel on what she deems emergency flare-ups. Many of my athletes use it as well, not daily mind you, but on the niggle that appears and the minor injury or on the long standing chronic problem. I gave the bottle to my mother, and this has become her go to pain treatment, the Windex of sorts she passes around with her friends when something hurts. Cheap, long lasting, and easy to apply, the Magnesium Gel is a perfect tool for an athlete’s toolbox, something to have around for those few times you need them, of for the time you sprain your ankle or have a fall.Foolproof? No, helpful? Yes.
