Magnesium Flakes deliver the highest concentration of magnesium, delivered directly through the skin for whole body health and relaxation.

Zechstein Inside® products: the purest natural magnesium chloride in the world. During the Zechstein era, 250 million years ago, the oceans were subject to considerable evaporation. The remains of this crystallised ‘Zechstein Sea', containing many types of mineral salts, is situated under large parts of northern Europe. The world's purest natural deposits of magnesium chloride can be mined one mile beneath Veendam in the Netherlands.

Zechstein Inside® has been formulated primarily for topical use. Essential magnesium is absorbed directly into the skin tissue, entering the cells immediately. Magnesium Flakes efficiently replace magnesium lost through modern diet and pressured lifestyles.

BetterYouTM Magnesium Flakes are simply the crystal form of the super saturated magnesium chloride, solution-mined in Northern Europe from the ancient Zechstein sea mineral deposits, one mile below the surface of the earth. These flakes are then used to produce our other Magnesium products so these are the purest form available.... anywhere.

Zechstein Inside® Magnesium Chloride has remained protected from man-made pollutants and is considered the benchmark for pharmaceutical grade magnesium. This is why we are proud to supply notable health institutions and practitioners worldwide.

Contains 2 body soaks / 4 foot soaks. It is recommended to take 2 magnesium-rich body or bath soaks per week.

Gentle and essential. Suitable for children, during pregnancy and for those with skin complaints.

Magnesium Oil Original Flakes provide you with the most relaxing and therapeutic body or foot bath you have ever experienced. Each 1kg bag contains a staggering 120 grams of the purest elemental magnesium. Magnesium Flakes deliver this essential mineral in its most absorbable form.

Skin Health
An excellent and essential mineral to enhance skin integrity. Softens skin and repairs skin structure, strength and etasticity. Suitable for all skin disorders including exzema, psoriasis and acne.

  • Ideal for both foot and body baths both Magnesium Flakes and magnesium Soak deliver the most pure natural source of magnesium chloride, Zechstein Inside®.  Used by a growing number of medical institutions, including Great Ormond Street Hospital and The University College London Hospitals, this form has been proven to increase the body's magnesium levels, relaxing muscles and aiding skin health.

    Available in liquid and dry crystal form these have been launched to compliment the successful range of BetterYouTM Magnesium Oil body sprays.

  • By creating a more diluted solution of magnesium chloride greater areas of the body can be exposed for longer periods of time, allowing a more gentle absorption of the mineral.

    The efficiency of magnesium absorption depends upon the relationship between the strength of the mineral concentration, the surface area of the body exposed and the length of time the two are in contact. This method is ideal for overall muscle relaxation and skin health.

  • BetterYou™ Magnesium Flakes contain only Zechstein Inside® magnesium chloride hexahydrate MgCl2 6H2O). The purest natural form magnesium chloride available in the world.
  • Zechstein Inside Magnesium Flakes deliver magnesium chloride in its highest concentration, 47%, and is exactly how the solution arrives after mining. The quantities to be dissolved should not be compared to the ‘conventional' tablespoon of bath salts. The Flakes will deliver exceptional levels of elemental magnesium once dissolved within the bath water.

    As a body bath soak:

    For a normal sized bath: 250g-500g per bath for effective muscle relaxation and normal health maintenance. For a more concentrated therapy a full 1kg bag may be used.

    The key to effective absorption is the balance between concentration, surface area exposed and length of exposure. The longer you relax in the bath the more magnesium your body will naturally absorb.


    Because the surface of a footbath is clearly much smaller than that of a regular bath, the minimum concentration suggested is around 4 per cent. This means for a 5-litre foot bath: 250 grams of magnesium chloride crystals (1/4 of a 1kg bag). As with the Soak, it is acceptable to re-use footbaths 2-3 times.
