Dosage and use
Use the gel as required to treat skin conditions. It can also be used instead of magnesium oil to maintain the magnesium balance. Its gel form makes it easier to use for massages. The gel feels somewhat sticky and, for the most part, draws into the skin. Leave to settle for at least fifteen minutes, then rinse off.
Zechsal gel is also used for compresses. Apply to the painful area (e.g. knee, neck, shoulder) and cover with hot wraps. Leave in place to warm the area for at least fifteen minutes, then rinse or dab off with a warm cloth.
Tip: absorption is much faster when the skin is warm (e.g. after a shower or exercise). Avoid contact with the eyes or superficial wounds. Contact may result in a stinging sensation.
A growing number of people are using Zechsal gel for brushing their teeth. This is because it strengthens the enamel, keeps the gums healthy and makes the teeth feel wonderfully smooth. The salty flavour may take some getting used to. A small amount applied to your toothbrush with your regular toothpaste is sufficient.
Ingredients: 30% magnesium chloride, aqua, hydroxypropyl starch phosphate.
