Accel provides you with minerals that are essential to muscle function and recovery, and delivers them through the largest organ in the body – your skin. Learn more here.
Magnesium, zinc and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM)
Nope. Everyone on the planet needs magnesium to function so even though Accel Recovery Lotion was primarily developed for athletes, everyone can benefit from using it.
While how much lotion to use depends on your size and activity levels, generally speaking, you should be applying it generously over your entire body. A rough formula is about 5mL (1 teaspoon) per 100 lbs of body weight.
Yes. And no. Technically speaking, Accel can be applied anywhere you have skin. Your body will make sure it gets to the right place. That said, we do recommend placing a higher emphasis on the affected areas. It won’t provide immediate relief of symptoms however, regardless of where you apply it. Your body needs to absorb it and disperse it first.
However, we have found Accel to be effective in treating skin surface damage like bruising, scuffs, minor abrasions and relief from mild eczema. (This last one isn’t a proven medical fact, merely our observations.)
Impossible! Our formula uses enough magnesium, zinc, and MSM to achieve results, but nowhere near the quantity you would need to overdose on it—not even if you took a bath in it.
It takes about 20-30 minutes for Accel to absorb through your skin and into your system.
Accel is best applied on clean, dry skin. So after a shower or before bed are two solid options. We recommend using it daily, especially if you train frequently.
Some scented lotions are awesome, and some smell like our grandma. To avoid this smelly issue, we made Accel completely scent free.
There are a lot of options for magnesium, zinc, and MSM supplements on the market. And like most supplements there are pros and cons to each of them. Some work, some don’t. Some cause yucky side effects (laxative anyone?), are expensive, or require that you take handfuls of large pills a day. Accel was developed to be a simpler solution.
Epsom salt baths are time consuming, expensive and messy. With Accel, you can just rub it on and go. Also, you can’t keep an Epsom salt bath in a gym bag!
Magnesium is present in a lot of foods like dark leafy greens, nuts, seeds, fish, beans, whole grains, banana and avocados. However, you would have to eat a LOT of these foods to maintain the right balance – especially if you are training and sweating heavily.
Accel Recovery Lotion is formulated to help your body quickly absorb minerals that are essential to muscle function. So, indirectly, yes it might help your 10K or Fran time eventually, but only if you’re willing to put the work in (please don’t try to sue us if it doesn’t).
Technically, yes. But we really don’t recommend it.
