Otherwise known as bath salts, these magnesium flakes are great for adding to a hot bath or footpath to give achey muscles some serious TLC. Magnesium is responsible for 325 chemical reactions inside the body such as supporting calcium absorption and helping improve rest and recovery. Magnesium Flakes are a highly concentrated form of magnesium chloride, a natural form of magnesium, so using them in a bath is an effective way of replenishing the body with this essential mineral. Paired with the fresh air from your walk, you’ll enjoy a great night’s sleep after a soak and even better, you are less likely to wake with stiff and sore muscles the following day.
