What are heavy metals?

Heavy metals like mercury, lead, arsenic, aluminum, cadmium, manganese, and chromium are found in a wide variety of personal care products, household cleaners, nail polishes, whitening toothpastes, some foods we eat, and can even be in the water we drink and the air we breathe.  While our bodies need trace amounts of some heavy metals to function normally, too much can be harmful.

Our bodies naturally detox, and it is the primary function of our liver and kidneys.  Many times our own bodies will be able to excrete these levels of heavy metals.  But, if the body accumulates too much of these substances it can cause health problems such as headaches, weakness and tiredness, depression, brain fog, increased illness, achy joints and muscles, constipation, and can disrupt the endocrine system (the regulator of the body's different hormones.)

Our Heavy Metal Detox Bath Soak Kits were designed to be an easy and gentle way to support the body's natural detoxification system, and the Magnesium Flakes are the star of the show!  Magnesium is one weapon in the fight against toxins.  It can help with detoxification in multiple areas:

  • Magnesium supports liver detox by attaching to toxins so they can be flushed from the body.
  • Magnesium has been shown to displace heavy metals.  Because minerals compete for receptor sites, by getting enough 'good metals' it can displace the harmful ones.
  • Magnesium supports and can improve brain function & memory.

We love Magnesium Flakes because they allow the body to soak in the benefits of the mineral through the largest organ, our skin!  Transdermal application is one of the fastest, and most effective ways, to reap the benefits of magnesium.

But don't just take our word for it, try it out and feel the difference for yourself!
