Magnesium - Best Place On Your Body To Spray?

When it comes to applying Magnesium Spray, the question always arises as to which parts of the body are the best for optimal absorption into the bloodstream. While there is no definitive answer, scientific studies suggest that certain areas may be more effective than others for topical application.

One of the most promising areas for topical application is the skin on the hands and feet. According to a study published in the Journal of Controlled Release, the skin on the soles of the feet has a significantly higher permeability than other areas of the body, making it an ideal target for topical delivery. Similarly, a study published in the International Journal of Pharmaceutics found that the skin on the palms of the hands had a higher permeation rate than other areas of the body. This suggests that topical creams, lotions, and other substances may be more easily absorbed through the skin on the hands and feet.

The scalp is another area that may be particularly well-suited for topical application. Research has shown that the skin on the scalp is highly vascularized, meaning it has a rich blood supply, which can enhance the absorption of certain substances. Furthermore, the scalp is often exposed to harsh chemicals from hair products, making it a prime target for topical treatments that can help soothe and nourish the skin.  

Does Magnesium Chloride actually help improve hair growth?, I hear you ask.  Actually YES, it really does!  So a relaxed evening or Saturday morning with your MgCl scalp treatment on for a few hours really makes sense.  Check out our separate blog post about that!  Topical Magnesium Chloride For Hair Growth

It's important to note that the effectiveness of topical treatments can vary depending on the specific substance being applied, other creams or lotions or soap residue which may impede absorption, and the individual's skin type and health. Additionally, it's important to follow the instructions provided with any topical treatment to ensure safe and effective use.

While there is no one-size-fits-all answer to the question of the best areas of the body for the topical application of Magnesium Spray, scientific research suggests that the hands, feet, and scalp are particularly effective for absorption into the bloodstream. As always, it's important to consult with a healthcare professional before beginning any new topical treatment.
