ANCIENT MINERALS MAGNESIUM FLAKES are ultra-pure, highly-concentrated crystals of magnesium chloride (MgCl2) sourced from the ancient Zechstein seabed in Europe.
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 highly cost-effective means to raise levels magnesium in the body via transdermal application.
ANCIENT MINERALS ARE THE PUREST MAGNESIUM FLAKES!
Transdermal Magnesium Therapy is fast becoming the preferred modality for rapidly elevating magnesium levels in the body. It is safer and more convenient than intravenous injections, and allows for far greater assimilation than oral supplements. Magnesium flakes are a convenient and cost-effective form of magnesium used for transdermal application.
Ancient Minerals magnesium flakes derive from ultra pure magnesium chloride lying deep beneath the earth in an ancient seabed that is 250 million years old. This pristine source yields the purest magnesium oil in the world.
Boosting your magnesium levels offers support for a wide range of health conditions and can improve general health. Magnesium is required for the production of energy (ATP), balancing the mineral calcium, and ensuring proper function of enzyme systems.
Magnesium supports the heart, nervous system (via relaxation of muscle tissues), and offers relief from pain.
Magnesium is a critical player in cell metabolism, helping to transport other minerals across cell membranes and affecting cell mechanisms that control the activity of muscle and nerve cells. But as the scientists note, their research suggests that the cardiac muscle seems to be more sensitive to magnesium intake than skeletal muscle.
Magnesium is naturally present in water and foods in varying amounts. The US Daily Value for magnesium is about 320 mg per day for women and more than 400 mg per day for men. Yet, studies show that most people regularly consume half that amount, partly due to depleted magnesium levels in soils and in foods. And now, new research reveals that this lack of magnesium may put your heart and your health at significant risk.
Magnesium flakes offer you an ideal way safely and rapidly to absorb more magnesium into your body. Magnesium oil also provides effective relief for sore, aching muscles, and replenishes cellular magnesium levels. Magnesium is required for energy production (ATP) in the body.
Dr. Mark Sircus states that magnesium is an ideal nutrient for pain relief. Not only can magnesium block pain at receptor sites (as a non-competitive antagonist of the NMDA receptor site), but it can also act upon the sources of pain, whether the source relates to inflammation, cell wall rigidity, inadequate levels of energy (ATP), or less than optimally functional enzyme systems.
Topical application of dissolved magnesium flakes (e.g., via a bath or footbath) 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 FLAKES are the most cost-effective means (costing about fifty percent less than ocean-source magnesium oils) for elevating magnesium levels in the body.
For these reasons, many individuals prefer the flake form, 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 therapeutic application in cases where there is 1) Severe depletion of body stores of magnesium 2) Psoriasis or 3) Eczema, it is recommended that an individual take 2 baths weekly for 4 weeks or more using 4-8 pounds of ANCIENT MINERALS MAGNESIUM FLAKES.
In order to facilitate high levels of use, we offer the flakes in a 32-pound package (consisting of four 8-pound tear packs) of flakes. This size is ideal for families, sports teams, and individuals interested in high levels of usage. This size also is favored by health care professionals, who can re-package the flakes into smaller containers, or provide the eight-pound tear packs, as desired. We also offer a 6.5 pound (128 oz) size in a recyclable plastic container (which contains about 16 cups of flakes).
One cup of ANCIENT MINERALS MAGNESIUM FLAKES contains approximately 51 grams of magnesium chloride and numerous trace elements from ancient seawater.

Letter from a Very Satisfied Customer
April 12, 2010
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.
