All Things Being Eco - Bulk Magnesium Chloride Flakes
All Things Being Eco
Our Magnesium Chloride Flakes (Hydrated Magnesium Chloride) is hydrated from the brine of Dead Sea water. Magnesium is an essential element for the body and is best absorbed through the skin (rather than by mouth). Also, by increasing your magnesium levels by transdermal dose, your body will only absorb the amount of magnesium it requires. Magnesium Chloride has been reported to help relieve aches, pains, soreness and stress. For external use only.
Country of Origin: Israel
INCI: Magnesium Chloride
Research shows magnesium can help ease:
- Muscle and joint pain
- Leg cramps and muscle spasms – including restless legs syndrome
- Sleep issues
- Migraines and headaches
- PMS symptoms including cramps
- Skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis
Directions: Dissolve 1-2 cups of Magnesium Flakes in warm (not hot) bath or foot bath. Warm water encourages absorption while hot water encourages excretion. Soak for 20-30 minutes. Longer bath times can increase the amount of magnesium absorbed.
Caution: For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of reach of children. If irritation, redness, or discomfort occurs, discontinue use and consult a licensed health care practitioner.
Magnesium flakes vs. Epsom salts
If you’ve ever pulled a muscle, had a strenuous workout, or received a massage, you’ve probably been advised at least once in your life to soak in a warm tub of Epsom salts. It makes sense: for hundreds of years, Epsom salts have been a go-to treatment for easing all kinds of aches and pains.
And it’s been effective, at least in some ways.
But get this: over the last several years, more and more people are turning to an even better, all-natural remedy for managing their sore bodies: magnesium chloride flakes.
Let’s look at the molecular make-up of the two to understand why:
- Epsom salt is a compound of magnesium and sulphate; whereas
- Magnesium chloride flakes (sometimes referred to as “magnesium salt”) are a compound of—you guessed it—magnesium and chloride.
So yes, both products contain magnesium. And technically, both types of magnesium treat many similar ailments.
But there is a small yet critical difference between them. Put simply, magnesium chloride flakes absorb more easily into the body than Epsom salts. As a result, magnesium chloride flakes have been shown to:
- Provide more concentrated bio-available magnesium into the body, and
- Create more intense and longer-lasting effects.
