Nutrition and medicine
Magnesium chloride is used in nutraceutical and pharmaceutical preparations.

Magnesium chloride is an important coagulant used in the preparation of tofu from soy milk. In Japan it is sold as nigari (にがり, derived from the Japanese word for "bitter"), a white powder produced from seawater after the sodium chloride has been removed, and the water evaporated. In China, it is called lushui (卤水). Nigari or lushui consists mostly of magnesium chloride, with some magnesium sulfate and other trace elements. It is also an ingredient in baby formula milk.

Therapeutic uses:
Relieve Pain with Magnesium
Magnesium to relieve back pain, joint pain, muscle pain, migraines and neuropathy

Magnesium deficiency is a known amplifier of pain. Adequate levels of magnesium are associated with lowering NMDA levels, the neurotransmitter associated with pain. High levels of NMDA in the brain correlated with experience of pain. Magnesium blocks NMDA receptors, preventing calcium or glutamate from stimulating them. In the presence of magnesium, NMDA levels lower and less pain is experienced. Magnesium soothes the nervous system, decreasing hyper-sensitivity. There are pharmaceutical products that lower NMDA but they usually have nasty side effects and associated toxicity. Magnesium, on the other hand, is non-toxic, healing the body and restoring it to natural balance.

Prostaglandins are another kind of chemical associated with pain and inflammation. In the presence of magnesium, the body makes less prostaglandins. This results in less pain and inflammation. Magnesium is useful in coping with all sorts of pain, including chronic pain as well as that caused by sprains, strains & injuries. Magnesium is used to eliminate migraines, acute nerve pain (associated with pancreatic cancer and diabetic neuropathy, for example) and fibromyalgia.

Magnesium & Muscles

On a molecular level, calcium causes a muscle cell to contract. Magnesium must come along and bump the calcium away from the receptor site in order for the muscle to relax. In order to contract again, the muscle cell must first release. In the absence of adequate amounts of magnesium, muscle cells do not relax efficiently. Some fibres stay contracted and this causes spasms & pain. Magnesium naturally relaxes muscles, relieving cramps & tension. When you have enough magnesium, you feel relaxed. Topical magnesium chloride, sprayed on the site of the cramp and also on the throat and neck relieves muscle spasms on-the-spot. The muscle relaxation properties of magnesium relieves muscle cramps, menstrual cramps and can prevent heart attacks.

Magnesium for Massage

Topical magnesium chloride is also a fabulous tool for massage, chiropractic & osteopathy. Most people who seek massage therapy are tense on a biochemical level; they are magnesium deficient and lack the ingredients necessary for their muscles and nervous system to relax. They often feel exhausted because their nervous system is over-stimulated as a result of not enough magnesium. When you apply magnesium chloride on before a massage, you are giving the body the ingredients for relaxation, making the massage more effective. Using magnesium after the massage helps to maintain relaxation longer. Magnesium also helps fascia to release, which is relevant for osteopathy and chiropractic. Adequate levels of magnesium help a client maintain the adjustment. If the fascia relaxes thoroughly, it will not pull the muscle back into the pre-adjustment position. This facilitates treatment and improves outcome for the client.

Magnesium also reduces inflammation. Inflammation is caused by the degranulation of mast cells, a kind of white blood cell. Inflammation happens when a kind of white blood cell called a Mast cell bursts. Mast cells are significantly less likely to burst in the presence of healthy amounts of magnesium. Magnesium eases inflammation throughout the body, helping relieve conditions such as arthritis, swelling caused by trauma, joint pain and atherosclerosis. By the same mechanism, magnesium also prevents the immune system from over-reacting. This works to reduce the likelihood as well as severity of anaphylaxis and allergy response.
