certified organic aloe vera extract (ACTIValoe®) in therapeutic amounts. Due to
its gelled composition, this unique formulation lends itself for the ultimate

Frequency of Usage
Generally speaking, Ancient Minerals should be used with intensity
during the first 3-4 months in order to ensure proper restoration of
cellular magnesium levels.
- It is advisable to begin the first few days of application with modest use, and gradually work up to larger amounts.
- A 3-4 month period of restoration follows, with daily use at individual therapeutic levels.
- After an initial period of restoration, some users continue at these
same levels, while others back down to using Ancient Minerals a few
times per week.
These levels serve only as a general guideline, as everyone has different needs and responds differently to magnesium therapy.
Recommendations on optimal magnesium intake vary, with recent studies
suggesting US RDA values may be insufficient to maintain good health.
This may be especially true for:
- Older adults
- Those with certain conditions or existing chronic health complications
- Those with a history of poor dietary choices
- Women of childbearing age
- Those experiencing emotional or physical stress, or stress caused by illness, injury or surgery
According to Dr. Carolyn Dean, MD ND, a highly respected medical
authority on the subject, research over the past 20 years indicates that
approximately 300 mg of magnesium is required merely to replace daily
Dr. Shari Lieberman, Certified Nutrition Specialist, FACN, recommends
500-750 mg of magnesium daily for men and women, and 500-1000 mg for
those suffering from angina or osteoporosis.
One general rule of thumb is a daily intake of magnesium of
approximately 3-4 mg per pound of bodyweight. For a 200 lb male, this
would equate to 600 mg to 800 mg per day.
