Nano Magnesium

Nano Magnesium can enter the bloodstream directly, making it work faster than any other form of magnesium, sometimes in as little as one minute!

What is Nano Magnesium?

Nano Magnesium is a revolutionary form of magnesium that can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream through the skin and mucous membranes. The particles are elemental, i.e. not bound to a salt or chelate like a citrate or oxide. Thus, they do not need to be decomposed before they can be absorbed. As a result, they also do not burden other organs and do not require excipients.

The particles are extremely small, at around 2 nm. A nanometre is one billionth of a metre and 7,000 times smaller than a blood cell. By comparison, a human hair is about 80,000 nm in diameter. This minuscule size allows them to pass through the skin and mucous membrane where they directly enter the bloodstream and can even cross the blood-brain barrier. They can also penetrate the very finest blood vessels, nerve tissue and deeply located organs.

The digestive system is completely bypassed. The bioavailability of Nano Magnesium is 100%. With pills and powders, 40 to 60% of the magnesium is often lost in the stool. With Nano Magnesium, therefore, you need less magnesium for the same effect. Nanoparticles also work energetically. They have a very large electromagnetic field.

This means that they exert a strong stimulus on cells, thus favourably affecting energy in the body. They also increase interactions between cells. Colloidal minerals (minerals between 1 and 1,000 nm, suspended in a liquid) also attract and remove damaged and dead cells due to their powerful energy field. Thus, they contribute to a balanced metabolism.

Why magnesium is important to our bodies

Magnesium is an essential macro-mineral. This means that our bodies need (relatively) a lot of it, as is also the case with calcium, potassium, sodium and phosphorus. It cannot be made by the body itself so we depend on food and food supplements. Magnesium is also an electrolyte: minerals that help the body regulate nerve and muscle function and maintain proper acidity or pH value; also called acid-base balance.

The mineral acts as a cofactor (‘helper molecule’) in more than 300 processes in the body, including protein building, cellular energy production and cell growth and reproduction, DNA and RNA formation, fat and protein metabolism and stabilisation of our mitochondrial membranes (“walls of our energy factories”). Magnesium is also important for bone building, nerve impulse transmission, mental and physical exercise and relaxation, regulation of heart rhythm, blood pressure and blood sugar levels, vitamin D absorption, muscle functions, detoxification processes and clearance of lactic acid (after intense exercise or due to disturbed intestinal flora).

Stress and its effect on magnesium status

It is well known that a lot of magnesium is consumed during periods of stress. Stress and social pressure are responsible for urinary magnesium loss due to magnesium’s effect on certain hormones such as adrenaline. The lower the magnesium level in cells, the greater the sensitivity to stress. This in turn causes more magnesium to be lost, creating a vicious circle.

Other magnesium robbers

Coffee, sugar and alcohol, like stress, increase the release of magnesium in the urine.

Supplementation with vitamin D (which is common practice these days) can lead to magnesium deficiency because vitamin D can only be converted to its active form (1,25-dihydroxy-vitamin D) with the help of magnesium.

Pesticides, GMOs, heavy metals and other pollutants rob us of magnesium by the body’s attempts to use magnesium to get rid of them.

Calcium (still commonly prescribed against osteoporosis) and potassium supplementation may lead to magnesium deficiency because they require magnesium for their absorption and function (accelerated osteoporosis).

Certain medications such as antibiotics and antidepressants can lower magnesium levels.

Digestive problems can lead to severe magnesium deficiencies. Too little or too much stomach acid, inflammation of the (small) intestine, deficient intestinal flora or coeliac disease greatly reduce the absorption of nutrients.

Moreover, too much dairy and sugars such as white bread, cheese, pasta, crackers, cold cuts, biscuits, custard, yogurt, etc. are often eaten, which rob the body of magnesium for the purpose of processing.

Good natural sources of magnesium

These include whole grain cereals like spelt and buckwheat, green leafy vegetables, nuts, seeds, dark chocolate and legumes. Unfortunately, the bulk of the Western population does not take in enough of these foods. Dairy products and sugars are consumed which can lead to further depletion because the body needs magnesium when processing them. Moreover, due to soil depletion, the normal diet no longer contains anywhere near the amounts we as humans need. According to a study by Ciba-Geigy, carrots for example contained 59% less magnesium in 1996 compared to 1985. How was it in, say, 1900? And now, in 2023?

Only calcium, phosphorus and sulphur are added to fertiliser. The remaining minerals (more than 73!) are not added and therefore they are largely absent in our diet. Mineral supplementation is therefore more often a necessity than a choice.

Magnesium is important for metabolism

Severe and prolonged magnesium deficiency puts pressure on the muscles, nerves and energy metabolism, among other things, causing palpitations, cardiac arrhythmias, spasms, digestive problems, a spastic gut, chronic fatigue, anxiety, postnatal depression, hypersensitivity, asthmatic complaints and allergies, depression, insomnia and accelerated osteoporosis (in postmenopausal women).

The digestive organs and pancreas require magnesium for the functioning of all enzymes. As a result, magnesium contributes to proper digestion and maintaining stable blood sugar levels. Magnesium is also known to be required for the conversion of sound stimuli in the ear canal. Magnesium can help prevent hearing damage from excessive noise.

“magnesium is essential in more than 300 body processes"

Magnesium inand headaches

Headaches and migraines are caused in part by magnesium deficiency. In particular, Nano Magnesium can provide quick relief due to its rapid absorption into the head.

Magnesium during pregnancy

During pregnancy, magnesium contributes to proper development of the baby and adequate relaxation for the mother. It helps prevent (pre)eclampsia, premature labour and preterm birth.

Magnesium also helps combat muscle weakness in infants and young children, and is of great importance for healthy functioning muscles, including the heart and blood vessels.

The importance of magnesium for bones and muscles

60% of our magnesium supply is in the bones and teeth. Calcium provides hardness and magnesium provides flexibility, which prevents bone fractures. If magnesium is deficient, the body will draw supplies from the bone system, which can promote osteoporosis.

20% of our magnesium is in our muscles, about 19% is in the liver and other soft tissues and only 1% circulates in our bloodstream. However, this 1% is very important for our heart, blood pressure, brain function, nervous system, blood sugar, body temperature, muscle contraction, electrolyte balance, immune response and hormonal system.


All these processes require magnesium as a cofactor. In the absence of magnesium, many processes can be disrupted or stopped. Perspiration, intense exercise, stress, medication use and inadequate nutrition can cause magnesium levels to drop rapidly, resulting in the aforementioned symptoms.

Complaints due to magnesium deficiency

Because magnesium is involved in so many processes, complaints can be very diverse. The most common are: muscle cramps, (calves, shoulders or neck), tight muscles, back pain, muscle weakness, twitching eyelids or corners of the mouth, lethargy, menstrual cramps, PMS, lowered libido, migraines, cold hands and feet, nervousness and lack of focus and energy. Because stress is a major contributor to deficiency, it is wise, especially in a stressful situation, to supplement magnesium in addition to changing diet and lifestyle.

Suggested use of Nano Magnesium

Nano Magnesium is available in diluted form and can be taken directly from the bottle, preferably 5 to 10 minutes before eating or at least an hour after. Hold in the mouth for about 1 minute before swallowing. This promotes direct absorption from the oral mucosa into the bloodstream, providing rapid action. Do NOT put the bottle to your mouth, but use the measuring cup provided, a cup of your own or a spoon, which may be metal.

Because Nano Magnesium works quickly, it can be taken just before or after exercise for muscle and nerve relaxation and renewed energy. If taken just before bedtime or when awake during the night, it provides quick relief from restlessness and tension. Nano Magnesium can be taken for quick relief from moments of stress, cramps, headaches or migraines.

Nano Magnesium can also be applied directly to the skin, for example using a spray. The nanoparticles are quickly and completely absorbed by the skin and penetrate deeply into the muscles and nerves.

***Please note: When a person has a (significant) deficiency of magnesium in the nervous system, he or she may experience a severe feeling of fatigue or drowsiness when taking Nano Magnesium for the first time. This is because the Nano Magnesium completely relaxes the nerves, creating a feeling of “weakness”. However, the deficiency will soon be replenished with the Nano Magnesium and a feeling of renewed energy and serenity will occur after taking it for a second or third time.

How much Nano Magnesium to use

Nano Magnesium may be used without limit. Magnesium in general may be used daily and is often even desirable. Nano Magnesium is very pure; a good quality product contains only water and elemental magnesium, nothing else.


Because the particles are so powerful, you need less of them. The magnesium content is therefore lower than in other magnesium products, from which you usually lose a lot of magnesium in the stool. So you can use nano magnesium without limits, even in large quantities if desired.


Due to its rapid absorption, approximately 60% of Nano Magnesium users experience an effect within 1 to 20 minutes of ingestion. For example, disappearance of cramps, tension headaches or a twitching eyelid. Nano minerals are generally translucent, odourless and flavourless. Sometimes subtle changes in colour, smell and taste may occur.



5 to 30 ml daily, equivalent to 1 teaspoon to 3 tablespoons. Take as needed during the day and/or before bedtime. May be increased to 90 ml daily; for example, for severe pain, cramps, migraines, or anxiety attacks.

Build up slowly when starting to take magnesium because a “feeling of fatigue” may occur in the beginning due to the instant effect. See above.

Age 0 – 2: 5 ml/1 teaspoon daily.

Age 2 – 6: 10 ml/1 tablespoon to 20 ml/2 tablespoons daily.

Age 6 – 12: 20 ml/2 tablespoons to 30 ml/3 tablespoons daily.

Due to the rapid absorption, approximately 60% of the users of nano magnesium experience an effect within 1 to 20 minutes after taking it. For example, the disappearance of cramps, tension headaches or a twitching eyelid. Nano minerals are generally transparent, odorless and tasteless. Sometimes very subtle color, smell and taste changes can occur.

Interactions with medications and other nutrients

Magnesium compounds are known to cause some diarrhoea or nausea when taken in large quantities or in certain bonds. With Nano Magnesium, that chance is very small. The lower dose with higher bioavailability prevents this side effect.

Potassium-sparing diuretics may decrease magnesium excretion. Some caution with magnesium compounds may be desirable. However, Nano Magnesium can be used safely.

Magnesium can enhance the effects of muscle relaxants (such as diazepam and baclofen) and oral antidiabetics.

Magnesium, due to its detoxifying effect, can lower the efficacy of drugs such as antibiotics (tetracyclines, fluoroquinolones), bisphosphonates, chlorpromazine, digoxin and thyroid hormone. It is advisable to take a magnesium supplement at least two hours before or after taking medication.

Magnesium can enhance the effects of muscle relaxants.

Magnesium may reduce the need for oral antidiabetic drugs by improving glycaemic control.

Where can you buy Nano Magnesium?

When purchasing nano magnesium, pay attention to the following:

  • Particle size: should be preferably below 10 nm.
  • Strength: should be at least 35 ppm, and 70 ppm is advisable for most people.
  • Inquire about the zeta potential, which indicates strength and stability. It should be at least 40 mv.
  • Packaging material: should be preferably dark violet glass; this preserves best.
  • It should be virtually odourless, colourless and flavourless.
  • It should be diluted with pure water.
  • Shape of particles: Should preferably be round/circular.
