Two hundred and fifty million years ago, toward
the end of the Permian period, gradual shifts in
the Earth's tectonic plates brought a jigsaw puzzle
of landmasses together into one super - continent,
Pangaea, where ancestors of the dinosaurs roamed
in steamy tropics. A single tropical ocean, the
Panthalassa Sea, surrounded Pangaea.
Tectonic plates continued to shift, the atmosphere
dried, oceans evaporated and sea- beds were buried.
Over the next hundred million years or so, Pangaea
separated into the seven continents we know today.
Nature left behind a buried treasure, a secret until
present-day understanding and technology allowed
us to discover it fifteen hundred feet below the
earth's surface, at a time when we need it most
prehistoric deposits of magnesium whose bioavailability
surpasses any other form and it is right here in
the United States!
We have learned volumes of information about nutrition
during the past hundred years. We've experimented
extensively with ways to feed a burgeoning world
population. In most cases the short-term advantages
were beneficial, while harmful side effects were
so gradual that relatively few people are seriously
concerned even today.
Magnesium is essential if the body is to produce
and store energy. It is responsible for heart health,
nervous system health, kidney and liver health,
immune system health and emotional health, to name
a few broad categories. It is responsible for the
activation of 325 different enzyme functions. It
affects every cell in the body. Magnesium is so
fundamental to bodily processes that a moderate
deficiency can lead to a domino effect of malfunctions
that eventually become life threatening.
Any substances not recognized by the body as food
are identified as toxic, and must be removed. This
includes chemical additives and preservatives found
in our food, as well as prescription or over the
counter drugs. Magnesium, together with vitamin
C, plays a major role in the removal of these substances.
Yet magnesium has been mostly ignored by traditional
medicine, and the fact that modern agricultural
and food-processing practices have left most of
the industrialized world magnesium deficient raises
Mother Nature has spent countless millennia perfecting
our access to vibrant survival, her number one priority.
When foods are cared for as Nature intended, we
have an abundance of nutrients for long, healthy
lives, free of chronic aches, pains, and deterioration,
with intricate mechanisms for healing any illness
that may overtake us temporarily.
But Mother Nature's patience has been overridden
by human ingenuity, and we've ignored her lessons.
The advent of chemical fertilizers at the end
of World War II was hailed as a breakthrough. All
we needed to grow plants that looked good and grew
quickly was nitrogen, phosphorus and potash (potassium).
We saw no need to return depleted magnesium and
several dozen trace minerals found in organic soil.
The result has been that magnesium has become seriously
deficient in our plant foods as well as in the animals
and animal products we use for food.
The irony is that magnesium is also essential to
all plant life. Chlorophyll is almost identical
to the hemin in our hemoglobin, with one exception
- hemin is bound by an atom of iron, but chlorophyll
is bound by magnesium
Thousands of years ago our diets contained an abundance
of magnesium from grains, vegetables, nuts and seeds.
Our bodies conserved calcium because it was harder
to come by. Our bodies haven't changed but our diets
have reversed. We eat more dairy than vegetables,
and the calcium, which contracts muscles, is not
balanced with magnesium, which relaxes them. That
leads to heart problems and inappropriate calcium
Today we average 20 to 30% less magnesium in our
diets than we did at the turn of the 20th Century.
68% of Americans do not consume the Recommended
Daily Allowance. Processed and fast foods are consistently
low in magnesium. Cooking reduces magnesium levels,
and consumption of excessive sugar or alcohol causes
excretion of magnesium. We have less and less magnesium
available to our bodies when we have to replace
more and more.
Several forms of magnesium have been produced as
nutritional supplements, but there is a major drawback.
The human digestive tract does not absorb isolated
magnesium from capsules or tablets very well, and
the unabsorbed portion left in our intestines usually
acts as a laxative.
Now, however, we have a form of transdermal magnesium
that bypasses the digestive tract and goes directly
into the bloodstream by means of a liquid applied
to our skin, the most visible organ of the human
After World War II, former prisoners of war returning
to the States were so malnourished that their digestive
tract could not absorb nutrients from food. Doctors
tried rubbing nutrients onto the inner thighs of
their patients, who began to rebuild their internal
efficiency very quickly.
The general public did not pick up on the idea because
vitamins and minerals were of little interest at
Now we know much more about the importance of nutrition,
and transdermal magnesium. Prehistoric
Magnesium Oil™ is a step in the right direction.
The objective is cellular saturation for maximum
benefit, and this form of magnesium can be applied
repeatedly with no harmful or annoying side effects.
Simply spray into the palm of your hand once or
twice and massage the liquid into the small of the
back, the inner thighs, even the face and throat,
using care around the eyes. You can repeat the process
up to six or eight sprays per application. You can
use 2 to 4 ounces of Prehistoric
Magnesium Oil™ in a footbath for 20 minutes,
or 4 to 6 ounces in a bathtub of warm water for
However you apply it, Prehistoric
Magnesium Oil™ will - circulate to the location
where it is needed the most. You may experience
a Light tingling or stinging sensation (the transdermal
action), which disappears quickly. You may want
to splash the area with a little clear water. The
kidneys normally excrete any excess magnesium, although
there can be some over absorption in the case of
serious kidney or gastrointestinal disorders.
- Magnesium stimulates the immune system to greater
activity by increasing the efficiency of white
blood cells, the body's most important defense
against bacterial or viral infections.
- It relieves the pain of joint and muscle injuries,
and it has a calming effect on the nervous system,
promoting restful sleep.
It is responsible for the prevention of osteoporosis
because it keeps calcium in the bones.
- Magnesium promotes cardiac health, lowers blood
pressure and assists in both the prevention and
treatment of diabetes and cancer.
- It increases adrenal production of DHEA, and
works to improve cognitive function, memory loss
and depression as well as the physical ravages
- Magnesium reduces the inflammation and systemic
stress that are the results of many pathological
It is crucial to the removal of toxins and heavy
metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium and aluminum.
Magnesium is an essential component of skin rejuvenation.
It hydrates the skin, improves elasticity, and
increases its resistance to bacterial permeability.
As Mark Sircus, Ac., C.M.D., says in his book,
Transdermal Magnesium Therapy:
"…we have a heavyweight non toxic medicinal
nutrient that we can use without a prescription,
because it is an essential food that the human body
requires to function properly. Withholding magnesium
from the diet is likened in importance to keeping
oxygen out of the air that we breathe, and developing
pharmaceutical substitutes to improve' our respiration…
Transdermal treatments are applicable and effective
for almost all medical conditions and situations
and can be as quick acting as an intravenous (IV)
