Magnesium chloride has long been associated with health benefits, including aiding muscle relaxation and nerve function, regulating blood pressure, aiding healthy sleep, and promoting good bone health. In fact, magnesium (which 80% of people are deficient in) is said to be involved in 300 bodily processes.
It can be absorbed most effectively into the body when magnesium flakes are dissolved in bath water and the body is allowed to soak - sometimes called ‘transdermal’ mineral bathing. This is considered more effective than taking magnesium orally in supplement form.
As well as the relaxing effect of these baths, the natural minerals in Westlab Magnesium Flakes can provide relief for people living with dry skin and psoriasis. The flakes have an oily texture and help to rehydrate dry skin.
Westlab sources the highest quality magnesium flakes from deep in the Zechstein Sea, in the northwest of Europe. This is an ancient sea with the purest magnesium source on the planet, owing to its age and the depth of the magnesium, keeping it free from pollutants.
