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
The Quick Magnesium helped alleviate the lower back and hip pain that I have been dealing with. When applying you will feel some tingling and a little itching but it disappears after 10 minutes and then I didn't even know I had it on me. It says you can wash off but I did not have to do that.
So glad to hear these results. Thanks for sharing, Michele!
I am not sure if I was using it wrong or what, but it irritated my skin. Also, it did not absorb well so it was sticky.
Hi Melanie, It is not uncommon to feel some tingling at first, as the Magnesium is being absorbed. But if your skin was really irritated, it is quite possible that you will do better with a smaller amount, and then gradually work your way up to a regular dose. And you can also use a carrier oil first and apply the Quick Magnesium over top. Please email us to let us know how you do with the smaller dose: firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you, Astrid HB team
I am grateful to have found a magnesium that does not affect my digestive system negatively. I just take the 2 capsules each night before bed. I am going to have my blood checked soon, and I am going to see if they can check my magnesium level. I am hoping to get a very good report on it.
Thanks, Melanie! We would love to know what you learn from the tests at email@example.com.
I really appreciate the quality of the Hormone Balance magnesium. Thank you for providing a solution that works and that tests clean!
Quality is Magdalena's first priority. Thank you for your review!
