ANCIENT MINERALS MAGNESIUM FLAKES are ultra-pure, highly-concentrated crystals of magnesium chloride (MgCl2) sourced from the ancient Zechstein seabed in Europe. These magnesium flakes are extremely pure because the seabed lies 1,600 to 2,000 meters beneath the surface of the earth, where it has been protected for 250 million years.
The flakes provide high levels of magnesium (47% magnesium chloride) and trace elements from ultra-pure, unpolluted deposits found in this ancient seabed. These extremely pure magnesium flakes offer very low sodium content. Magnesium flakes are especially beneficial when used in baths or footbaths. They are a very cost-effective means to raise levels magnesium in the body via transdermal application.
APPLICATIONS AND CONSIDERATIONS
ANCIENT MINERALS MAGNESIUM FLAKES are ideal for use transdermally (acting across the skin surface) enabling the body to absorb as much magnesium as it may require. Unlike oral magnesium supplementation (which is characterized by certain limits on the rate and amount of uptake and assimilation), magnesium applied directly on skin via baths or footbaths can rapidly and effectively raise tissue (and cellular) levels of magnesium.
Topical application of magnesium oil simultaneously provides energy and relaxes muscles. This means users will be primed for peak performance, being relaxed and energized. Users also report deeper, more restful sleep, reduced stress, and greater well-being.
Because of its relatively lower cost and weight, and higher concentration of magnesium chloride than magnesium oils, ANCIENT MINERALS MAGNESIUM FLAKESare the most cost-effective means (costing about fifty percent less than ocean-water sourced magnesium oils) for elevating magnesium levels in the body.
For these reasons, many individuals prefer the flake form of magnesium chloride, especially for use in baths and footbaths. However, ANCIENT MINERALS MAGNESIUM OIL remains a more effective means to use magnesium chloride transdermally when spraying directly on skin.
For transdermal magnesium supplementation and relief of aches, pain, soreness, and stress, we recommend you put 1-2 cups (4-8 ounces) or more in the bathtub or footbath, and then soak for a minimum of 20 minutes.
We recommend soaking in your magnesium bath on a regular basis for best supplementation. While 1-2 cups is a desirable starting level, higher doses (up to 32 cups or 8 pounds) may be used in a bath to obtain medically therapeutic results.
For therapeutic application in cases where there is severe depletion of body stores of magnesium, it is recommended that an individual take 2 baths weekly for 4 weeks using 8 pounds of ANCIENT MINERALS MAGNESIUM FLAKES.
In order to facilitate high levels of of usage, we offer the flakes in a 6.5 lb (128 oz) recyclable plastic container, which is approximately 16 cups of flakes.
We also offer a 32-pound package, which consists of four 8-pound tear packs of flakes. This larger size is perfect for families, sports teams, and individuals interested in high levels of usage. The large size also is favored by health care professionals. The eight pound tear-pack can be opened and repackaged into smaller containers for greater convenience. Or the pack can be provided directly to patients and clients.
NOTE: The temperature of the magnesium bath should be warm (101 F to 105 F) rather than hot. Hot bath water encourages excretion rather than absorption. When you add the flakes to warm bath water, your skin will absorb the magnesium more efficiently.
INGREDIENTS: ANCIENT MINERALS MAGNESIUM FLAKES contain ultra-high purity magnesium chloride and trace minerals extracted from deposits in the Ancient Zechstein seabed in Europe. The Zechstein seabed is a pristine source of magnesium, and has been protected deep beneath the earth for 250 million years. One cup of flakes contains approximately 51 grams of magnesium chloride, and numerous trace elements from ancient seawater.

Letter from a Satisfied Customer
The magnesium oil/flakes are an incredible product. For me, I am a very active, athletic 44 year old man that takes pleasure in being in better physical and cardiovascular shape than people much younger than me. I lift weights, do cross fit, yoga, run, play basketball, you name it. People are amazed at the activity level I can maintain. I came across magnesium oil/flakes about a year ago and fell in love with it. The product works! And I have personally turned 5 people onto using it (and they too love it). It is a rare product that works; is healthy for you AND does really relieve stress and sore muscles.
