Magnesium Chloride Flakes 1kg
These natural magnesium chloride flakes are harvested from the Dead Sea in the Middle East, the deepest hyper-saline lake in the world, reaching deep into the earths' crust where ancient minerals deposits are still abundant! The salt is harvested by utilizing natural solar energy that evaporates the water in the Dead Sea, naturally concentrating the salt to a level much higher than you will typically find in other brands.
Transdermal Magnesium Chloride (absorbed through the skin) in a bath soak or foot soak is a far superior method for safely increasing magnesium (Mg) levels in the body, particularly useful for relieving sore muscles and joints, reducing pain related to functional magnesium deficiency and for replenishing depleted soft tissues. It also assists to help calm nerves and reduce systemic bodily stress.
Additional benefits of magnesium chloride flakes include greater energy, more relaxed muscles (and stronger connective tissues), better sleep, improved mental function, alleviate headaches, arterial health, better reproductive function, and better hormonal balance for men and women (and reduced PMS). In addition, magnesium maintains the detoxification of toxins and metabolic waste products. Magnesium Chloride also acts as an effective full body tonic increasing energy, strength and endurance related to the 350 enzymes directly related to magnesium.
Difference between Epsom Salts & Magnesium Chloride
Magnesium Sulphate (Epsom Salts) is magnesium bound to sulphates, and Magnesium Chloride is magnesium bound to chlorides. Since both products contain magnesium, which product is more beneficial Epsom Salt or Magnesium Chloride?
Now, when Magnesium Chloride or Epsom Salt (magnesium sulphate) are diluted into water the bonds separate, and for better understanding, if both products were diluted into the bath water at the same time we would have 3 separate minerals:
- Magnesium on its own
- Sulphates on their own
- Chlorides on their own
As the bonds separate, we would uptake those 3 elements separately. Therefore, whether the Magnesium is initially bound to Chlorides or Sulphates becomes inconsequential as it is no longer bound to either, but is readily up-taken as Magnesium!
Now, although Magnesium is in both products and both have similar levels of Elemental Magnesium, the Chlorides and Sulphates it’s initially bound to are Equally important as EACH one plays a different important role within the body, and each provide different essential elements. Chlorides assist with things like Electrolytes and Digestion and you can read about the benefits of Sulphates on Blants Autism page which also applies to many of us in the community in general and not just for those that are on the spectrum.
Bottom line is both Magnesium Chloride and Epsom Salts are equally beneficial to the body, as each provides different essential elements, and transdermal therapy is by far the best method of absorption. Alternating between the two products can be very beneficial, thus replenishing cells with all three minerals, or you can use either product depending on individual needs.
