Muscle pain can be experienced in practically all areas of the body. This includes our back, shoulders, calves, hands and even our feet. Implementing regular exercise and stretching and respecting our body’s limits can play a role in keeping this type of pain managed. However, there are some contributors to muscle pain that cannot be managed through outside actions.
Inadequate levels of magnesium, also known as a magnesium deficiency, can cause tension and pain in our muscles along with muscle spasms/tics.
Intense muscle contractions, cramping (including menstrual cramps) and even Restless Legs Syndrome have been proven to be signs that there are insufficient levels of cellular magnesium, which is the magnesium contained within our cells. Inside of our bodies, there exists constant competition between minerals and nutrients. In the battle between calcium and magnesium, calcium always wins. When calcium accumulates in excess amounts, it can cause painful muscle contractions which are known to us as cramps, spasms and tics.
In simple terms – inadequate levels of cellular magnesium allows calcium to take control and create discomfort. This manifests as most types of muscle pain, tension, spasms and cramps. A fast, natural and effective solution and to soothing and preventing these symptoms could easily be the application of topical magnesium over the affected area. How does it work?
Muscle pain is something we all experience from time to time, and it can range from mild to excruciating. While it stands as one of the most common discomforts, muscle pain is not something that should be ignored. It can result in a consistent loss of sleep, an inability to do one’s job and can even lead to more debilitating conditions such as anxiety and depression. Some muscle aches and pains will go away on their own within a short time, but some muscle pain can linger for months.
Muscle pain can develop pretty much anywhere in the body, including our neck, back, legs and even our hands. There are preventative measures that can play a part in keeping muscle pain at bay, such as: regular stretching and exercise, acknowledgement of our physical limits, and living a generally healthy lifestyle. However, that being said, a lack of sufficient magnesium in the body (known as magnesium deficiency) may be causing muscle tension, tightness, and even spasms.
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, applying topical magnesium could be the fastest, most efficient solution as it enters directly through our skin, into our bloodstream and muscle tissue.

While magnesium is available in a number of different forms, some may not provide the results you’re searching for – and others can even cause digestive discomfort (ie. nausea, stomach upset, loose bowels, etc.)
We offer cream and spray options, both are easy to apply directly to areas of discomfort. Topical magnesium is a welcome, convenient addition to your gym bag (for post-workout pain relief), briefcase (to deal with screen time-induced neck tension) or handbag (to tackle troublesome pain throughout the day). It can also be an absolute lifesaver when kept on your bedside table, as muscle and joint pain for most seems to be amplified at night.
Pro-tip: The addition of arnica to our standard Relive & Relax Magnesium Cream formula creates an extra strength offering for those who experience moderate to severe muscle and joint pain. Both versions of the cream contain the same amount of magnesium; the arnica is an added benefit for folks dealing with chronic or intense pain and inflammation.
