It's the magnesium you want to be chelated, not the zinc.

You can also take magnesium chloride flakes as a supplement, either orally or transdermally. Mixed with water, it's called "magnesium oil", which is absorbed quite well through the skin. You put it in a spray bottle and spray it on.

A 2 lb bag is around $21 on Amazon:

2 Pounds Magnesium Chloride USP (Pharmaceutical Grade) 100% Edible "Greenway Biotech, Inc. Brand"

To take it orally:

"We recommend mixing 33 grams per 1 liter of water and take one shot (1.5 oz or 45 ml) of that a day if you're 51-70 years old, half a shot 10-50 years old and twice a day if you are over 71 years old."

I started taking my non-chelated Magnesium twice a day (one in the morning and one at bedtime) right after I read this. I was shocked to have a good night sleep without leg cramps. I ordered some chelated Magnesium and started taking these at bedtime and taking the non-chelated ones in the morning. I have not had any leg cramp issues (knock on wood). Even after using a ladder yesterday (this always make my legs cramp at night) to do some work I did not have any cramps. My wife even started taking them and she is sleeping better also.
