Epsom Salt Benefits

Epsom salts are a mineral comprised of magnesium and sulfate. This is something many of us are deficient in due to our processed food diets. Since magnesium plays many roles within the body and can be absorbed through the skin, it is so effective in easing sore or cramping muscles, bruises, inflammation, and infections, just to name a few.

Add 2 cups of Epsom salts to your bath water or 1 cup to your foot bath, and bathe in it for 20 minutes allowing the magnesium to absorb into the pores. Other benefits of magnesium sulfate include prevention or ease of migraines reducing blood pressure, helping to form proteins in joints decreasing arthritis.

By bathing or soaking your feet in an Epsom salt bath added to warm water and soak for 20 minutes daily can help ease sore muscles and muscle cramps.
