Ancient Minerals Magnesium Flakes
About This Product
Ancient Minerals Magnesium Flakes are the dry flakes of raw, ultra-pure magnesium chloride and other naturally-occurring trace minerals, drawn from the Ancient Zechstein Seabed in Northern Europe, in a convenient and economical form for use in baths and foot soaks. This transdermal form of magnesium chloride is rapidly absorbed through the skin, resulting in a far greater percentage of the active ingredient reaching the bloodstream and cells than if taken orally. When added to a warm bath, this therapeutic product works to improve skin hydration, promote the removal of toxins, speed wound healing, enhance skin barrier function and decrease inflammation. Many claim these bath flakes are effective as an aid to healing skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis*, also as an aid in relieving muscle aches and cramps, including period pain, as it is an excellent muscle relaxant.
Benefits may include the relief of aches and pains (e.g., as in fibromyalgia), increased energy (as magnesium is involved in the production of ATP), support of cardiac tissues and the cardiovascular system (magnesium being a natural muscle nourisher and relaxant), support of processes of detoxfication, support of brain function (which depends upon ATP), improvement of mood and reduction of tension-related stress, support for healthy skin, and numerous other health benefits.
These flakes are ideal for travel because they are not in a liquid state and because of their relatively low weight. They are also useful for applications demanding portability and larger amounts of magnesium chloride (e.g., multiple uses or larger quantities per application) than might be available when using magnesium oil. In particular, these flakes are popular with health care practitioners because flakes are easy to store and to dispense to clients.
Direction for Use:
Dissolve 1-3 cups or more of the magnesium flakes into a warm, but not hot, footbath or tub bath, and soak for 30 minutes or more.
When you take just one to two baths per week in these magnesium flakes, you’ll find yourself with faster workout recovery time, better sleep, more relaxation and less stress!
For Therapeutic Use:
Simply dissolve 1 to 3 cups of magnesium flakes (or more) in full tub bath or foot bath and soak for 30 minutes or more. The temperature of the water should be 101F to 103F (not hot), since excessively hot bath water causes the skin to eliminate rather than absorb. Following the bath, rinse skin with cool running water, then pat skin dry with a towel and apply a natural moisturizer.
