Magnesium

100% natural and unrefined Zechstein Magnesium, arguably the world's purest magnesium chloride.  The only magnesium that is sourced from an ancient sea, deep below the earth, ensuring it is free from pollutants and contaminants.  Available as a magnesium spray, magnesium bath flakes and magnesium gel.

Benefits of a magnesium soak?

  • Natural cellular protector
  • Relief of aches, pains, spasms
  • Elevates mood and relieves stress
  • Encourages healthy skin tissue
  • Helps maintain proper muscle function
  • Boosts energy levels
  • Supports a healthy immune system
  • Supports the hormonal system
  • Calms overactive nerves
  • Improves quality of sleep

Zechstein Magnesium Flakes come from the purest known to date natural source of magnesium chloride, the Zechstein Sea.   It is extracted from an underground layer in the North of the Netherlands, however the Zechstein Sea (that existed over 250 million years ago) stretches underneath the North Sea and Northern Europe. 

Why is Zechstein Magnesium Flakes or Oil considered more pure than other sources?  

Other sources of Magnesium, such as the Dead Sea, Tibet or other surface level sources, the salt has to be 'cleaned' or processed to remove other elements.  Zechstein magnesium chloride is that it comes from the ground already as magnesium chloride (dissolved in water at 31% concentration). Nothing further has to be done to it. To achieve flake form, the water that was pumped into the underground layer is evaporated out. 

- purest natural magnesium chloride 

- specially developed quality protocol 

- underground source from 250 million years ago with the source never having been exposed to modern day pollution

- the source is in the Netherlands, so there is no worries of human rights violations, the mode of extraction is sustainable using just water pressure.

How do I use Magnesium Flakes?

Dissolve 2-3 cups in a warm (not hot) water bath and soak for 20-30 mins.   Pregnant women can enjoy a warm (not hot) bath and make sure you rehydrate.

 How to use our Magnesium Spray?

1000mg elemental magnesium per 1mL / approx 4 sprays.  Keep in your bathroom or bedside for daily use.

Magnesium FAQs

Magnesium Flakes are a naturally occurring compound called Magnesium Chloride. Magnesium Chloride naturally occurs in the ocean - Mg + Cl (2), which makes it a salt. Magnesium Chloride is also present in our bodies in the intercellular fluid. We source our Magnesium Flakes from the Zechstein source in Northern Europe. The brine (salty water) is drawn up from deep under the earth and then dried into flakes.

Both these bath salts are naturally occurring, and both are sources of Magnesium, but they are actually different compounds. Magnesium Flakes are Magnesium Chloride and Epsom Salt is Magnesium Sulphate.

There are many reasons why someone could be deficient in Magnesium. These include:

  • Lower levels of Magnesium in our food due to farming practices and food processing techniques
  • Many magnesium products (such as supplements) have poor bioavailability
  • Common medications (eg for stomach acid and heartburn) increase excretion of magnesium from the body.

The best way to increase your Magnesium levels is by taking oral supplements PLUS through transdermal absorption (ie a Magnesium bath, or magnesium skin products). The most bioavailable oral supplement is Magnesium Citrate, however with a daily requirement of 400mg/day, this is not possible to get through oral supplement alone. Adding Magnesium baths, massages or sprays to your routine will ensure your Magnesium intake is adequate.

We do not recommend making your own Magnesium Oil. Magnesium Oil is the natural brine that is extracted from the Magnesium source, deep beneath the earth. Our Zechstein Magnesium Oil (or brine) is 100% natural and pure, and has a Magnesium Chloride concentration of 31%. After pumping the brine up to the surface, the product is bottled for sale as Zechstein Magnesium Oil.

To make Magnesium Flakes, we evaporate the water so that a solid flake is formed. Although this is a natural process, there is a slight chemical change to the product as the liquid dries to a solid. Therefore, if you combine water and flakes to make your own Magnesium Oil, you do not end up with the same brine (Magnesium Oil) that was extracted at the beginning of the process.
