Q. How do I get the spray nozzle to work again if it becomes clogged or ceases to spray properly?
A. Most often the reason for the sprayer ceasing to spray properly is that it gets air in the tube from being turned upside down when used.Try to avoid this. It is better to hold the spray bottle level and spray into the palm of your hand and then rub into the targeted area rather than turn the bottle upside down to spray and risk getting air in the sprayer tube. If the sprayer has ceased to work, you can "re-prime" it by doing the following:- Run a couple of centimetres of warm to hot water into your sink or basin. Holding the end of the sprayer tube under the water, keep compressing the sprayer until it becomes primed and starts spraying again. Then re-insert into your Magnesi Magic Spray Bottle.
Q. Are there any studies on the benefits of Magnesium?
There are many studies that show Magnesium to be a crucial element for achieving better movement. Here are just a few......

Danforth WH. Control of Energy Metabolism, New York: Academic Press, 1965:287-298 study of male athletes supplemented with 390 mg of magnesium per day for 25 days resulted in an increased peak oxygen uptake and total work output during work capacity tests.
Summary: In a very tightly controlled 3-month US study the effects of magnesium depletion on exercise performance in 10 women were observed – and the results make fascinating reading. In the first month, the women received a magnesium-deficient diet (112mgs per day), which was supplemented with 200mgs per day of magnesium to bring the total magnesium content up to the RDA of 310mgs per day. In the second month, the supplement was withdrawn to make the diet magnesium-deficient, but in the third month it was reintroduced to replenish magnesium levels. At the end of each month, the women were asked to cycle at increasing intensities until they reached 80% of their maximum heart rate, at which time a large number of measurements were taken, including blood tests, ECG and respiratory gas analysis. The researchers found that, for a given workload, peak oxygen uptake, total and cumulative net oxygen utilization and heart rate all increased significantly during the period of magnesium restriction, with the amount of the increase directly related to the extent of magnesium depletion. In plain English, a magnesium deficiency reduced metabolic efficiency, increasing the oxygen consumption and heart rate required to perform work – exactly what an athlete doesn’t want!
