The magnesium gel is helping me fall asleep faster and sleep more deeply. I rub some coconut oil on my thigh and then the magnesium. No stickiness, no dry skin. Just improved sleep.
I bought this for my mother (71 years old) who suffers from restless leg syndrome and constantly is awakened at night with leg cramps. She says it really seems to help, and she has noticed a big decrease in night leg cramps when she applies it about an hour before bedtime. The only drawback is the stickiness that turns into a sort of dryness/flakiness on the skin where it is applied. This is a much nicer alternative than the painful leg cramps, however.
Hi Angela, It absorbs into the system rather quickly and can be washed off 20-30 minutes after application if you would like. Also, you can apply a carrier oil (such as coconut oil) to skin before applying your Quick Magnesium and that helps too. We love hearing your mom is getting relief from her leg cramps.
If you need to supplement with magnesium and don't care for the powdered drinks or pills, there is no easier way to get it than with Quick Magnesium. Be prepared to use plenty of lotion, though, because repeated use on the same area of skin can dry it out.
Sometimes that can be the residual left after it absorbs and look to be dry skin. Thank you for your feedback Jen!
I don't really know yet if it will help me because I can't get past the way it feel. Besides the pins and needles feeling it just doesn't feel good on the skin. The feeling is strange, kind of sticky but dry. I'll have to try again but so far this is my experience with it.
Hi Nicole, You can always wash it off 30 minutes after application. By that time the body will have absorbed the magnesium. Another option is you that you can apply a carrier oil (such as coconut oil) to skin before applying. Please let us know if these solutions are helpful. ~Deanna HB Team
I wanted to try this so that I didn't have to swallow another pill. While I don't have another pill to swallow, I do have a topical that I have to plan taking about 1/2 an hour before showering as it does feel sticky when it goes on. Now the stickiness goes away after a while, but the thought of it make me want to wash it off rather than go the day with it on. It very well may not be an issue for others, I'm just that way. As far as how it works, it does allow me to sleep better without any leg muscle uncomfortableness. I quit using it after a while because of the stickiness, and I was soon back to sleepless nights. So I'm back to using it at a time that allows me to shower after half an hour, and I'm sure I'll be sleeping well again here in a day or so. It would be nice to have what is considered the standard or starting amount to use listed on the bottle or Consumer Education Sheet, as it does not say anywhere. I just guessed and hope I didn't start too low to not be effective or too high to be wasteful.
Hi Nuria, Thank you for your great review. There are many different reasons that a person may want to choose a topical magnesium over an oral supplement, and you made a great point about finding the right time for you to apply it. Dosage is: ¼ tsp, which is 150 mg. This would make for 144 ¼ tsp applications per bottle. I hope this helps. ~ Astrid HB Team
