Product Description

What are Ancient Minerals Magnesium Bath Flakes? Ancient Minerals magnesium flakes are dry flakes of magnesium chloride hexadyrate and other trace minerals, in a convenient and economical form for utilization in baths and foot soaks. Ancient Minerals magnesium flakes are approximately 47% magnesium chloride by weight. Where Do Ancient Minerals Magnesium Bath Flakes Come From? Ancient Minerals magnesium flakes are extracted from the Ancient Zechstein Seabed in Europe, 1600 to 2000 meters deep in the interior of the Earth. Well protected for the last 250 million years, they are the most pure magnesium flakes in the world and a mark of purity on every bottle of Ancient Minerals. How do I use Ancient Minerals Magnesium Bath Flakes? For therapeutic use, dissolve 1 to 3 cups of magnesium flakes (or more) in full tub bath or foot bath and soak for 30 minutes or more. Temperature of the water should be 101F to 103F (not hot). 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.

I am very happy with my purchase. The magnesium flakes seem clean, and the plastic box is very large. I have successfully created my own magnesium oil and will be saving tons of money. I heated 1 cup of water in a saucepan until very hot. Then I poured in 1/2 cup of magnesium flakes and let them melt - stirring every so often while the mixture cooled. When cool, I poured the "oil" into several spray bottles and it applies very nicely to the skin. I actually like my own brew better than the magnesium oil I purchased, and I'll save a lot of money making my own. I also did a bath soak one day when my back muscles were quite spasmy ... filled the tub with about 4" of hot water and added 1 cup of the magnesium flakes. Sat in it for quite a long time trying to absorb the liquid. It helped, but no more so in my opinion than a liberal application of the oil. So, because of the cost of these flakes, I probably won't do the bath thing again unless I'm desperate. It's amazing what this oil will do on a tight muscle ... relaxes it almost immediately. PS: The magnesium oil you buy is exactly the same thing - magnesium flakes dissolved in water. So buy this and make your own. And, I know the strength of mine, 2:1, and the stuff you buy doesn't really say. I recommend this product.

I suffer from severe muscular issues in my neck and shoulders which cause terrible headaches. It seems like someone always has an new recommendation or idea for me to try but some of them are rather hair-brained and most I've already tried without success. A friend recommended trying magnesium oil, which is one thing I'd never heard of, and I figured I had nothing to lose. I couldn't believe that the magnesium oil applied directly to my problem areas actually reduced my tension and pain, but it did!

After the success with the oil, I thought I'd buy some flakes so I could bath in it to increase my magnesium intake and also mix up my own magnesium oil. This is the best price I've found for this quantity of flakes. They are high quality and very pure (as illustrated on the label). I try to soak for at least half an hour and it's amazing how much better I feel when I come out of the tub.

I've recommended this to a friend who suffers from Lupus and to my dad who is 61 years old and still runs 4+ miles a day and both have had similar success.

This 8 lb bottle of magnesium chloride flakes is a welcome find on Amazon, offered at a reasonable price from the company which also provides mg sprays.

[My review of Magnesium Oil 8 fl oz (237 ml) Spray gives details on causes and cures of magnesium deficiency. I've also posted a video review on the Ancient Mineral mag oil spray, linked below.]

Upon receipt of these flakes [I had originally purchased the Swanson 2 lb flakes, to try the smaller quantity first], I checked the ingredients and was relieved to see that not a single item has been added to this pure magnesium chloride salt in the form of gorgeous, smooth, marble white flakes from the ancient Zechstein Seabed (currently located far underground). I feel blessed to find a product without unwanted ingredients which are often toxic and operating in opposition to the purpose of the product.

In efforts to reverse numerous health issues currently speculated to be caused by magnesium deficiencies, many people have been reporting excellent results from transdermal applications of magnesium chloride sprays and bath flakes, much better results than from oral supplements (which can provide laxative effects unneeded by some, though I still use mg products both orally, for healthy regularity cleansing, and transdermally).

Like Epsom salts, these flakes are dissolved in water in a full bath or foot bath. In addition to that use, I purchased the flakes to refill my spray bottle of Mg oil.

I have trouble sleeping and frequently experience leg cramps so I have been taking "Calm" magnesium powder in warm water at night to relax me for years. However, I recently read an article about the general need for more magnesium than the digestive system can tolerate so absorption through the skin was recommended. I ordered these bath flakes and began evening bathtub soaks. The soaks are very effective. They have not only helped relax me for sleep, they are also relieving persistent shoulder and neck muscle aches (probably from being at the computer a lot)... plus, these soaks helped quickly sooth and heal a badly bruised toe. Since these flakes are expensive, I have recently been reducing the volume of flakes and adding some Epsom Salt to the bath too in order to stretch the supply of this product. I will definitely continue to use this product as long as I can afford it.

I use these flakes almost every night. It is a super way to build up your magnesium reserves in your body without the side effects of taking magnesium orally.
