The base of The|Tides Wellness products consist of unique ingredients that are known for their purifying, re-mineralizing strengthening and revitalizing properties. One of our Rockstar ingredients that ticks all of these boxes is magnesium and guess what? It is the same molecule that is present in seawater and in our bodies. The benefits of magnesium are numerous. It is an important mineral to keep our brains and bodies strong, balanced, resilient to stress while also providing us with the energy to live life to the fullest.
Magnesium is not only a structural element of our blood, bones, muscles and organs but it is also involved in catalyzing hundreds of enzymatic reactions in our bodies, including energy metabolism and protein synthesis. Enzymes are protein molecules that stimulate every chemical reaction in the body. Magnesium is required to make hundreds of these enzymes work including energy production in the cells.
Studies show that many people in developed countries are deficient in magnesium. One in five are said to be getting less than half the RDA (recommended daily allowance) for magnesium in their daily diets. It is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies faced today.
Stress! Today’s 24/7 connectivity, over stimulation, sensory overload, chemical exposures, lack of sleep, poor nutrition, too much sugar, alcohol and afternoon espressos to keep us going, drain our vitality, strength and immunity and leach minerals out of our system, especially magnesium. As the body fatigues, especially when a diet is not good, acidic waste builds up in the tissues. This acidic waste accumulation causes congestion and eventually breakdown of the tissues and organs. The body also must constantly take minerals from the structure of the connective tissue, bones and teeth to maintain an alkaline condition of the tissue fluids.
When our magnesium levels dip and become low we can feel stressed, fatigued, as well as experience sleep deprivation and skin disorders can occur too. Think about magnesium as the ultimate relaxation and feel good mineral which our bodies need to operate optimally. If our magnesium levels are perfectly balanced it can make us feel like we are on top of the world.
Magnesium has many benefits. As a natural muscle relaxer it instantly relieves muscle spasms and cramps, improves the quality of our sleep, reduces anxiety and stress levels and – as it controls hundreds of chemical reactions in the body – it helps to regulate blood pressure, and keeps our immune systems strong. Magnesium can also help to alleviate topical skin conditions, including eczema, psoriasis, acne, neurodermitis and athlete’s foot. Magnesium is also essential for the body’s ability to absorb and transport calcium. It aids in repairing and building muscle and bone strength, flexibility and energy. When our magnesium levels get low and there is not enough magnesium available the bones get soft and the muscles get hard and rigid.
As one of the most abundant minerals in the human body, it’s no wonder that the symptoms of low magnesium levels are correlated with so many health-related issues that have an impact on all the body’s major systems.

As low magnesium levels can cause a lot of problems, supplementation is one of the best things we can do for our health and wellness. It might sound surprising, but topical application of magnesium spray, gel, or bathing in magnesium are probably more beneficial, than oral supplements to increase our magnesium levels.
According to Dr. Daniel Kenner (Expert on The|Tides Wellness Team) one problem with oral magnesium supplementation is that so much of it is eliminated through the bowel. In fact, magnesium sulfate is used as a laxative. Magnesium hydroxide is used as an antacid. Both these forms of magnesium are not so useful for supplementing the blood and tissues. Amino acids can help magnesium cross from the gut into the blood stream, but in general it is difficult to supply sufficient magnesium through oral supplementation. For this reason, the best ways to get magnesium are through food and to supplement magnesium transdermally by absorption through the skin (for research on transdermal magnesium read more here).
At The|Tides Wellness we have formulated a beautiful collection of result-driven self-care products, using our very own Dutch magnesium, which has been sustainably sourced from the world’s purest 100 % natural magnesium crust, originating from a 250-million-year-old evaporated sea from the Pangea Era. The incredible therapeutic benefits of magnesium are beautifully harnessed into our products. As the magnesium has never been exposed to modern day pollution, this unique in the world magnesium is certainly the most pure and natural source of magnesium chloride in the world known to date.
We have processed this effective and potent mineral in a cutting-edge synergy with other ingredients that have a long history of healing such as grey sea salt, seaweed, algae, clay, mud’s, plants, herbs and aromatherapy oils. Our products are not only effective but are backed by science with results that work. All of the ingredients in our formulas are sustainable sourced and 100% biodegradable. They are natural and organic, vegan, unisex, multi-functional and cruelty-free.
You can find our key ingredient magnesium in our Bath and Foot Soaks, Muscle Charger Formula, Liquid Chill Pill, Body Scrub, Body Mask, Scalp Treatment, Shampoo and Body Wash.
As studies show that transdermal magnesium supplementation (applied directly onto the skin) provide the most effective absorption to restore intracellular levels, we have also created a line of professional use product for spa and wellness professionals worldwide to help their customers replenish their magnesium deficiencies through targeted treatments.
All of the The|Tides Wellness™ Signature treatments and therapies are themed around the 21st century challenges designed with the modern wellness devotee and wellness wannabees in mind. We understand their need for innovative wellness approaches and methodologies to de-stress from the fast-paced life. It is with this in mind that our treatments coupled with our products, have been especially created to restore physical and emotional balance and strength, detoxifying from urban stressors, digital overload and environmental pollution, relieving fatigue, recharging energy, boosting vitality and immunity, restoring hormonal imbalance and improving sleep quality.
