Ancient Minerals magnesium bath flakes offer a convenient form of topical magnesium—absorbed by the skin—for those who prefer to avoid the hassle of taking pills and the difficulties inherent with poorly tolerated supplements. Why topical? Because the skin is not only the most efficient organ for detoxification, but also holds tremendous potential for re-mineralizing the body. There are hundreds of peer-reviewed medical studies examining the efficacy of magnesium in a wide range of health enhancing applications, yet not much attention is directed at the method of delivery. Ancient Minerals magnesium bath flakes are designed to deliver magnesium topically, bypassing the GI tract with no unpleasant laxative effect.
A LESSON IN BALNEOTHERAPY
Balneotherapy is a natural approach to physical therapy using water and minerals. Dating back centuries, the Greeks and Romans would bathe in mineral-rich hot springs to treat a variety of ailments. It is thought to promote healing by increasing circulation, encouraging detox and easing stress. Today, people all over the world continue to seek out hot springs for a therapeutic soak. In water immersion, the skin’s absorption of the minerals can be considerable, especially with total body immersion. A way to replicate the art of balneotherapy at home is to add mineral-rich salts to your bath.
Magnesium is a necessary element to hundreds of biochemical reactions occurring in the body on a constant basis—approximately 300 enzymatic reactions! Magnesium contributes to the manufacture of energy, cardiovascular function, and cellular reproduction. Strong bones and teeth, radiant skin, balanced hormones, a healthy nervous system, and relaxed body and mind, are all made possible by sufficient magnesium in our cells.
