Lack of magnesium is linked with all sorts of health issues. That’s why rebuilding your magnesium levels is a go-to strategy at some of the world’s leading migraine clinics. Just make sure your magnesium is the right type so your body can absorb all of its benefits.
Your magnesium deficiency is filling up your migraine bucket
That is because magnesium is like water - a fuel that powers your body and its many processes. And that is why a lack of this mineral is linked to migraines in many ways, namely:
What is my migraine bucket?
When excess levels of calcium (e.g. from dairy) and glutamate (e.g. from processed foods) enter our brain cells they wreak havoc, causing cell damage that makes us more susceptible to migraine attacks. Magnesium helps to prevent excess calcium and glutamate from destroying the brain cells, making it like a protective coat of armour against brain cell damage and migraines.
Chronic inflammation is possibly the most important contributing factor to most people’s migraines. Common causes are certain foods (e.g. grains, beans, processed foods), stress and chemicals in your daily environment. Not only does magnesium counter the inflammatory process, magnesium deficiency is shown to let inflammation run wild inside us, keeping your migraine bucket filled up.
Serotonin instability plays a role in many migraines, headaches and depression. That’s why common migraine drugs like the triptans family work by blocking the depletion of serotonin from the cells. Magnesium performs the same function as triptans, yet it’s natural, safe and doesn’t cause rebound headaches!
Stress and bad sleep are common issues that lead to chronic inflammation, making them common culprits in migraine. Because magnesium keeps our cells charged with energy, one of the most well-known benefits of magnesium is better sleep and feeling more relaxed overall. Magnesium can make a big difference on migraine health through its effect on sleep and mood alone.
Each of the above can take up a lot of space in your migraine bucket. A lack of magnesium intensifies their impact, increasing the risk of migraines.
That’s why eliminating magnesium deficiency is correlated to a long-term reduction in both the frequency and intensity of migraines*.
What's the best way to address magnesium deficiency?
You can first look to introduce more magnesium-rich foods into your diet. However, it is very possible that food alone will not provide you with sufficient levels of magnesium.
That is because modern diets high in sugar, processed foods, simple carbohydrates, caffeine and alcohol use up lots of magnesium, as do fatigue and stress. Even when we eat foods traditionally rich in magnesium – such as nuts, grains and green, leafy vegetables – a problem remains as modern agricultural practices have reduced the amount of magnesium available in food.
In this case, we recommend supplementing with picometre ionic magnesium chloride on a daily basis. That way you can cover the daily shortfall not provided by your diet plus the body’s existing deficiency.
The beauty of picometre ionic is that it is already ionised, and in magnesium’s tiniest form, allowing it to be absorbed quickly through the digestive system walls, penetrate the cells and get to work where the body needs it. This is why we recommend it for migraine sufferers and for improved health in general.
What about other magnesiums?
There are many different types of magnesium but only a small few are easily absorbed by the human body.
This is usually because the magnesium is not ionised, while the molecules are often too large in size to pass easily through the walls of the small intestine. This means only a small portion of the mineral is actually available for use by the body and leads to disappointing results, something we hear often from migraine sufferers.
For some types of magnesium - like magnesium oxide - as little as 4% is absorbed! Magnesium in tablet forms are particularly bad for this.
Other types, even in small amounts induce diarrhoea. And a couple may even contribute to neurotoxicity and thus migraines (e.g. magnesium glutamate and aspartate)!
We developed Escape.ME® Magnesium to make it easy for migraine sufferers
Escape.ME® Magnesium is the result of our extensive research into the topic of magnesium and migraines. It is specially formulated to provide the most effective and absorbable magnesium supplement for migraine sufferers.
Our magnesium is naturally-sourced picometre ionic magnesium chloride blended with pharmaceutical-quality distilled water, allowing for maximum absorption by the body’s cells and limited laxative effect.
This means you can be confident that supplementing with Escape.ME® Magnesium is actually giving your body the nourishment it needs for better health and migraine protection.

What can I expect from using Migraine Escape® Magnesium?
It typically takes 3-12 months to reduce your magnesium deficiency to the point where you feel significant benefits. However, some people report positive symptoms sooner.
- Better sleep
- Generally feeling more relaxed and less stressed
- Fewer migraines and headaches - and less intense when they come
- Improved muscle recovery from exercise
- Improved recovery from injury
- Improved energy levels and mood
How much do I need to use and how often?
We need to replenish our bodies’ magnesium stocks every day.
Traditionally we could do this simply through the foods we eat, but modern diets, processed foods and industrial agriculture have reduced the amount of magnesium we get from our daily meals.
The amount you supplement should cover this daily dietary shortfall, plus additional amounts to reduce any existing magnesium deficiency. It can take several months to a year of magnesium supplementation to fully restore your magnesium levels, after which you can reduce your daily dose down to the gap left by your diet.
One 100ml bottle of Migraine Escape® Magnesium should cover the average person for approximately 1 month of daily magnesium supplementation.

Why Escape.ME® Magnesium delivers maximum absorption
Picometre means a trillionth of a metre, whereas human cells are ‘microns’ or millionths of a metre. Escape.ME® Magnesium is 150 picometres in size - being so much smaller than human cells, it can easily pass through cell walls to be readily absorbed by the body.
To make magnesium most available to the cells of the body it has to be made into ions. Virtually all other forms of magnesium supplements need to be broken down in your digestive tract by your gastric acids and made into the highly bioactive form - magnesium ions. This takes time and energy and in the process much is excreted through the bowels. Escape.ME® Magnesium is already ionised, allowing it to be absorbed rapidly into the cells in very high concentrations.
Escape.ME® Magnesium is ionised magnesium chloride, which means it can actually fast track absorption by helping to create digestive juices in the stomach and intestines. Other types need to use the stomach’s existing acids and are therefore less absorbed and at slower rates.
As nature intended
Many magnesium manufacturers formulate their product on price alone. They add the cheapest forms of magnesium, which often come as a byproduct of heavy industry and are not optimised for absorption by the human body. Many also use plastic bottles that can leak toxins, another contributing factor to the migraine bucket.
Supplied in eco-friendly recyclable glass bottles, Escape.ME® Magnesium is sourced from one the world’s purest natural sources of magnesium chloride - the ancient salt deposits of Lake Deborah, deep in the heart of the Australian desert.
Tested for quality
We put the health and safety of our customers first, with the highest standards of quality control.
That’s why Escape.ME Magnesium has been tested by the Australian Government’s National Measurement Institute to ensure it contains no dangerous heavy metals or toxic substances.
The results show that Escape.ME Magnesium is as nature intended - magnesium chloride in its natural form along with minor traces of naturally-occurring elements from the source deposits, all well within recommended government guidelines.
