Ancient Minerals Magnesium Bath Flakes are a form of transdermal magnesium, a method of mineral supplementation designed to deliver magnesium to the body through the skin, resulting in rapid absorption into the cells. Ancient Minerals bath flakes are dry flakes of magnesium chloride and other naturally-occurring trace minerals in a convenient and economical form for use in baths and foot soaks. Some individuals with sensitive skin may prefer this gentle method of magnesium delivery to the more concentrated Ancient Minerals Magnesium Gel or Oil. Soaking in magnesium salts has been shown to noticeably improve skin hydration, speed wound healing, enhance skin barrier function, and decrease inflammation. Ancient Minerals Magnesium Flakes are effective for stress relief, and as a soak for muscle and joint aches. Magnesium flake baths are also highly therapeutic for psoriasis, eczema, and other skin conditions.
About Ancient Minerals Magnesium Products Ancient Minerals products contain a high concentration of ultra-pure, 100% naturally occurring magnesium chloride and other trace minerals, drawn from the ancient Zechstein Sea. * They are absorbed through your skin and into the blood stream which rapidly transports the magnesium into your cells.
Ancient Minerals Magnesium Bath Flakes versus Epsom Salts Magnesium occurs in the form of various salts. Ancient Minerals products are made of magnesium chloride. Epsom salts are made of magnesium sulphate. Magnesium chloride is regarded as the better choice to get magnesium into the body because of its clinical and pharmacological effects. Magnesium chloride is more easily absorbed and utilized by the body than Epson salts (magnesium sulphate). Magnesium sulfate is more likely to be rejected and excreted through the kidneys, making it less effective than magnesium chloride. The use of Epsom salts is more likely to result in toxicity. **
* The Zechstein Sea existed about 250 million years ago. What remains is an ancient seabed, rich in the purest source of naturally occurring magnesium chloride on Earth. This ultra-pure deposit is located at a depth of approximately 2000 meters, and is accessed from the Netherlands. ** https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16259379
Magnesium bath flakes can be used in a foot bath or a full bath. Water temperature should be warm but not hot. Hot water causes the skin to eliminate rather than absorb.
Foot Bath Dissolve 1-3 cups or more of the magnesium flakes into warm water and soak for 30 minutes or longer.
Full Body Bath Dissolve in warm water at least 1.5 lbs of magnesium flakes per bath. Use up to 8 lbs of magnesium flakes per bath for intense applications. Soak for 30 minutes or longer. 1 cup of Ancient Minerals magnesium flakes delivers approximately 15 g of elemental magnesium into your foot soak or full bath.
