Magnesium has a whole host of health benefits which include relieving muscle and joint pain, increasing energy levels, improving circulation, headache relief, reducing stress, improving sleep quality, improving skin hydration, treating acne, eczema and other skin conditions, increasing nutrient and mineral absorption and drawing toxins out of the body.
Many of us are magnesium deficient due to eating too much fortified food and the imbalanced nutrient level in our soil which depletes magnesium levels even in fresh food.
A simple way to keep your magnesium levels up is by adding magnesium flakes to your bath and having a long soak - magnesium is immediately, efficiently and safely absorbed by skin. Magnesium flakes contain 47% magnesium chloride which when bathed in, will be delivered directly into the skin tissue, entering cells immediately. You will notice a difference in the way you feel after just one magnesium bath.
All you need to do:
Dissolve about 1 cup of magnesium flakes in warm bath water, keeping the water temperature just above body temperature. Very hot bath water has been shown to encourage excretion rather than absorption. Lie back and relax for 20 mins or so. Another effective way of absorbing magnesium is via your feet - just add a cup of flakes to a footbath.
Magnesium flakes are readily available at health food shops and online - we buy ours from www.victoriahealth.com (an amazing treasure trove of all the best in natural beauty).
