Salts…What are their Unique Benefits?

What are Magnesium Flakes?

Magnesium flakes are small flakes of magnesium chloride you dissolve in water. As you relax in the bath or soak your feet, the magnesium absorbs through your skin, meaning you benefit from its therapeutic properties faster.


Some of the benefits of magnesium flakes include the following:


• Supports healthy bones

• Improves skin health

• Helps you relax before going to sleep

• Relieves muscle tension


What are Dead Sea Salts?


Dead Sea salts are mineral salts extracted from the Dead Sea, a salt lake located between Jordan, Israel and Palestine.


They are a different type of salt to sea salt and regular table salt in that they have an off-white colour and contain much less sodium. They are, however, abundant in many other minerals, such as magnesium, potassium, calcium and bromide.


Because of this mineral-rich composition, they have become famous for their healing properties—many people still visit the Dead Sea each year to soak in its waters. The salts are sold in stores as products for skincare and promoting general good health.


Like magnesium flakes, they:


• are transdermal—absorbable through the skin

• dissolve in water, meaning you can add them to your bath as a way to increase your magnesium intake


How are they different?

The main difference between magnesium flakes and Dead Sea salts is in what they consist of:

  • Magnesium + chloride = Magnesium flakes

  • Magnesium + several other minerals (potassium, calcium, sulphur, bromide etc) = Dead Sea salts.


Because Dead Sea Salts contain other minerals they can be used for a wider range of ailments, but when harnessing the benefits of magnesium they are less effective than magnesium flakes.


Magnesium flakes are pure magnesium chloride, so have a higher concentration of magnesium (we guarantee at least 47% magnesium mineral quality in our flakes). Dead Sea salts are composed of 21 different minerals and so are likely to contain a lower concentration of magnesium.


Epsom Salts

Epsom Salt is actually a form of Magnesium. Its compound name is Magnesium Sulfate and it looks a lot like salt! Magnesium Sulfate is traditionally used in baths, but can be safely ingested as well (if food-grade). It is believed that Magnesium can be absorbed through the skin, so while you are relaxing in an Epsom Salt bath, your skin will be soaking up the goodness. Epsom Salt benefits are vast - when Epsom Salts are absorbed into your skin they can help relax and rejuvenate tired limbs and leave you feeling refreshed and energised.
