Magnesium Inflama Roll-on – Scam!

Posted 3 July 2013

Another scam from Platinum Lifestyle Products / Miracle Magnesium. 

We know from science that very, very few substances can be effectively absorbed through the skin. That is why so little orthodox medicines are sold this way. There is zip proof that magnesium is absorbed through the skin to have any effect on the range of conditions this product claims to be effective for. Big scam.

Magnesium Inflama Spray – ASA ruling

Posted 18 April 2013

Platinum Lifestyle Products continues to scam consumers with a range of scam products, including Magnesium Inflama Spray. In this complaint, a consumer argued that this company continues to make false claims for this product without being able to prove the claims were true as required in a previous ASA ruling. The ASA agreed, the claims were still being made without any proof that they were valid. How do we know this product is a scam? Simply: there is no physiological way that adequate amounts of magnesium or the ingredients in this product will be absorbed through the skin, and secondly, treating the conditions listed with magnesium has zip evidence of benefiting. Purely thumb-suck nonsense.
