Healthstrong Magnesium Flakes Original are a high concentration of ‘Zechstein Inside’ magnesium chloride, which absorbs through the skin.
More about Magnesium Chloride…
Magnesium chloride, a natural salt of magnesium, was plentiful in the Zechstein Sea around 250 million years ago.
Over time, this water filled underground deposits and as a result, was trapped by overlying rock. Whilst the Zechstein Sea no longer exists, the beds were preserved and are now mined in Northern Holland.
For this reason, the magnesium chloride is as it existed millions of years ago – ultra pure and free from any pollutants.
Magnesium Health Benefits…
Magnesium is needed for hundreds of enzyme reactions in the body and specifically, inside our cells.
It’s a macro mineral and needed by the body in large amounts. In the UK it’s suggested that approximately 70% of the population are probably deficient in this essential mineral, from teenagers through to the elderly. As a result, this can cause a whole range of health-related problems.
For example, just a few Magnesium Flakes benefits* include:
- Muscle Function
- Electrolyte Balance
- Teeth & Bones
- Psychological Function
- Protein Synthesis
- Functioning of the Nervous System
- Reduces Tiredness & Fatigue
- …..plus many more!

Transdermal Magnesium, how it works…
Healthstrong ‘through the skin’ transdermal Magnesium Flakes are efficient way to replenish magnesium levels.
When applied directly to the skin, the magnesium absorbs through the pores and through to the blood vessels and muscles.
Importantly, it bypasses the digestive system where many nutrients are lost and typically, with other forms of magnesium supplementation, a laxative effect can be caused. Studies and Trials have shown that Transdermal Magnesium absorbs better than a tablet or capsule form.
‘Zechstein Inside’ magnesium…
We are committed to providing the finest and most natural Magnesium Flakes.
For that reason we use ‘Zechstein Inside’ magnesium chloride.
Firstly, this is mined straight from the source, in Northern Holland, at a depth of 1600+ metres below ground level. Then, a rigorous procedure is followed and analysed, before each batch is finally produced.
In addition to these Original Magnesium Flakes, we have some other 200g Magnesium Flakes available too, mixed with essential organic oils. Check out the full range here.
