Hi Ben, I've been using the Ancient Minerals magnesium spray. It burns for a while after I put it on, especially if I am rubbing it on (vs directly spraying), and especially straight after a workout. After a while it subsides but I'm wondering if this is normal or if it's a reaction I should be concerned about. Thanks for the awesome information you put out.
concentration of the magnesium chloride in the product can cause a tingle
(or itchiness) with some individuals, partly due to the vasodilation of
capillaries on the skin (magnesium is a vasodilator). An effective
application time is about 20 minutes. Our best recommendation for
application on those sensitive to the product, is to apply over the
arms/legs/torso liberally, left on for 20 minutes, and then rinsed in the
shower. It is particularly convenient if timed with your typical shower.
A moisturizer is recommended after rinsing off, if you experience dryness
as you mentioned. Also worth mentioning is that if you allow the product
to dry completely on the skin, you are no longer absorbing the magnesium
ions since it needs moisture as a means of transport.
Thanks, I will try this approach — basically more surface area for less time. Interesting about no absorption when dry. Should be no problem to time it with my shower. Thanks again!
I was made aware of your podcast from someone on Trailrunner Nation. I listened to the recommended podcast and ended up listening to 4 more in the same night. Awesome stuff! I've been listening to Robb Wolf's podcast and found it hard to implement for an endurance athlete. I'm now deleting Robb's podcast from from Iphone and sold on your approach.
Thanks so much for what you are doing.
Great to hear Monte.
