Benefits of magnesium
  • Crucial for general wellbeing
  • Supports healthy bones
  • Improves skin health

  • Relieves muscle tension

Magnesium is responsible for 325 chemical reactions inside the body and helps support calcium absorption, maintenance of normal bones and teeth, normal psychological function, and healthy functioning of the nervous system.

Magnesium also helps improve rest and recovery by contributing to a reduction in tiredness and fatigue, electrolyte balance and supports normal energy-yielding metabolism.

What are Magnesium Flakes?

Magnesium bath flakes, sometimes called magnesium bath salts, are a highly concentrated form of magnesium supplementation, designed to be added to a bath or footbath. 

Soaking in a magnesium-rich bath helps promote relaxation and soothe tired and aching muscles. Allowing full-body exposure to a concentrated solution of magnesium chloride. A gentle and effective method of supplementation.

The magnesium used within Magnesium Flakes has been naturally purified over 250 million years to guarantee it is free from man-made pollutants and heavy metals.

How do Magnesium Flakes work?

When placed in warm water, the Magnesium Flakes dissolve and absorb into your skin. This is known as transdermal magnesium absorption and is a great way to increase magnesium levels, as well as ease muscle tension.

Benefits of transdermal magnesium absorption

A number of studies have been carried out around magnesium intake and its benefits. These studies have found that transdermal magnesium absorption (intake through the skin) is a highly effective way to increase magnesium levels.

As magnesium is a natural relaxant, if you take a large dose orally it can have a laxative effect. Using it as a transdermal product means that it avoids processing by the digestive system and so too avoids the laxative effect; therefore you can take larger doses through the skin.

A convenient alternative to tablets and capsules, transdermal magnesium has several benefits:
  • Is easy to apply
  • Bypasses the digestive system
  • Is universally acceptable and suitable for those with malabsorption issues
  • Avoids the laxative effect of high oral supplementation doses
  • No contraindications with prescribed medications.
