Magnesium Chloride Bath Salts and Your Health

Reports by the World Health Organization have estimated that three quarters of Americans do not meet the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) of magnesium. Yet many continue to be unaware of the role magnesium and hypomagnesemia play in optimal health.

Despite the role of magnesium in maintaining health, much of the U.S. population has historically not consumed adequate amounts of magnesium… Magnesium is an essential element that is crucial to hundreds of physiologic processes in humans. Not surprisingly, inadequate intake of magnesium has been linked to various adverse health outcomes, including the development of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and headaches. Furthermore, magnesium is important in bone growth and may play a role in athletic performance.”

Magnesium’s potent healing activities are a part of a diverse history of traditional medicine around the world, and today’s leading nutrition experts consider magnesium supplementation essential. Magnesium’s crucial role in over 300 fundamental biochemical reactions leads to a profound ability to influence nearly all of the body’s systems, an impact that is only now beginning to be fully understood.

There are several types of oral magnesium available for those who choose to protect or prolong their health with a magnesium supplement. Yet oral magnesium is not tolerated well by certain individuals, and some forms have been shown to have as low as a 4% absorption rate. Magnesium bath flakes by Ancient Minerals bypass the irritation and side effects associated with oral magnesium and are instead absorbed through the body’s largest organ: the skin.

Magnesium chloride flakes, a form of transdermal magnesium, are unique in that they are:

  • Easy and convenient
  • Directly available to muscular systems that require magnesium to function
  • Delivered through the skin, and therefore easily assimilated and well-tolerated

Daniel Reid, bestselling author and a leading expert on eastern philosophy and medicine, recommends transdermal magnesium as a superior form of magnesium supplementation, citing Ancient Minerals as his topical magnesium of choice for his patients:

Of all the sources we’ve tried, Ancient Minerals is the one that delivers the fastest, most potent therapeutic benefits. It contains essential elements that no longer exist in ocean water today, and is totally free of any toxic contaminant.”

For the first time in three years my daughter wasn’t crying saying, ‘Mommy, my skin hurts!’ This was a huge win for our family. I can’t thank Magnetic Clay enough for the results that we’ve been able to achieve since that first bath. Her eczema is significantly reduced, almost completely gone.”
— Jayne Peralta-Forbes, Seattle, WA

I was all ready for the pain and the three or four days in bed, but got the surprise of my life. I not only skipped the pain, but I felt pretty darn good! …Keep up the good work, and I will keep shoveling my driveway!”
— Ned Barlowe, Thompson Falls, MT

I can’t even begin to tell you what this simple mineral has done for me. Within a short period of a couple of weeks I am a different person. No longer am I chasing an elusive creature taking over my life and leaving me in shambles. I am calm and at peace.”

A child who usually shies away from crowds was actually dancing in a room full of people. For me the night was flooded with compliments on how fantastic she looked (normal even!) But I know I must give the credit for that day to the magnesium bath we gave her the night before – she has never been so calm and relaxed!”
— Amy Perry and Family

They work wonderfully for calming our son down, and he actually reaches for them. He wants more and more! He loves his magnesium baths so much!”
— Mary Ludwig, mother confronting autism

I no longer have the leg aches or cramps I used to have and I’m sleeping better at night and do not seem to have as much tension. These are great benefits!”
— Lois from Tennessee

The skin is the human body’s largest organ — a living, breathing efficient organ of absorption and detoxification. And among minerals, magnesium is the most life giving available, a central element to the vital and microscopic processes of energy manufacture, balance and regulation.
