Discover the benefits of this classic, natural remedy! Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulfate Heptahydrate) is a water-soluble, bitter-tasting, white and colourless compound. The Salt derives its name from a bitter saline spring at Epsom, Surrey, England. But don’t mistake Epsom Salt for table salt. Table salt is Sodium Chloride and is an entirely different substance from Epsom Salt, which is made of Magnesium and Sulfate. Epsom Salt offers countless benefits that can soothe the body, mind and soul.
FOR RELAXATION AND RELIEF OF MUSCLE ACHES
During times of stress, Magnesium is depleted in the body. When dissolved in warm bath water, Epsom Salt replenishes this level of Magnesium and the Magnesium ions help to produce Serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical within the brain that calms and relaxes the body, thus creating a feeling of calmness and relaxation.
In addition, Epsom Salt draws toxins from the body, soothes the nervous system, reduces swelling and temporarily relieves muscle aches and stiffness of joints. The Magnesium in Epsom Salt acts as a muscle relaxant and relieves muscle aches. Experts believe that bathing with Epsom Salt at least three times a week also increases energy and stamina by encouraging the production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate).
Epsom Salt is widely used in foot bath treatments to relieve tired, aching feet through the muscle-relaxing properties of the compound. It also helps to remove feet odor and softens skin.
Epsom Salt is a natural laxative that can be used for short term relief of constipation. Taken internally, Epson Salt acts as a detoxifying agent for colon cleansing. The salt acts like a laxative by drawing water into the intestines from surrounding body tissues and can bring about temporary relief from constipation. Results are produced 30 minutes to six hours after ingestion.
Magnesium has a demonstrated calming effect and deficiency in Magnesium causes hyperactiveness, irritability, anxiety and muscle twitching or spasms. Sulfate has shown to be effective in improving nutrient absorption and toxin elimination. Since both Magnesium and Sulfate can be absorbed through the skin, many parents report that giving their child a warm bath with 1-2 cups of dissolved Epsom Salt just before bedtime helps calm them down and extend the child's sleep cycle and improves concentration.
