Bathing in an Epsom Salt bath is a quick and effective way for the body to absorb magnesium through the skin. Human body needs the magnesium to perform many of its functions from the basics such as turning our food into energy, to the formation of strong bones and teeth, muscle function and much more.
It is very widely used in the sports world for treating muscle pain and bruising
There are 101 uses for the Epsom Salt ranging from bath salts to a skin softener to cleaning your bathroom tiles. It is also used in the gardening world to correct magnesium deficiencies in soils and plants.
Researchers and physicians report that raising your magnesium levels may: Improve heart and circulatory health, reducing irregular heartbeats, preventing hardening of the arteries, reducing blood clots and lowering blood pressure.
• Epsom Salt relieves stress. Excess adrenaline and stress are believed to drain magnesium, a natural stress reliever, from the body. Magnesium is necessary for the body to bind adequate amounts of serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical within the brain that creates a feeling of well being and relaxation
• Epsom Salt improves the body's ability to use insulin, reducing the incidence or severity of diabetes.
• Epsom Salt flushes toxins and heavy metals from the cells, easing muscle pain and helping the body to eliminate harmful substances.
• Epsom Salt improves nerve function by regulating electrolytes. Also, calcium is the main conductor for electrical current in the body, and magnesium is necessary to maintain proper calcium levels in the blood.
While increasing your magnesium levels, Epsom salt also delivers sulfates, which are extremely difficult to get through food but which readily absorb through the skin. Medical research indicates sulfates are needed for the formation of brain tissue, joint proteins and the mucin proteins that line the walls of the digestive tract. Sulfates also stimulate the pancreas to generate digestive enzymes and help to detoxify the body's residue of medicines and environmental contaminants.
