So if you’re wondering: Do Epsom salts work? Yes, they do. I love Epsom salts baths to detox, stimulate nerve and muscle function, exfoliate and de-puff my skin. What is Epsom salt? Magnesium sulfate, commonly known as Epsom salt, is a mineral.
Magnesium regulates over 300 enzymes in the body. It may be the most important element needed by our bodies to function properly. It’s been established that most people require an additional 300 milligrams of magnesium per day to prevent chronic diseases.
When you add Epsom salts to your bath, magnesium and sulphate are absorbed through the skin allowing toxins and excess fluids to be drawn out of the skin.
The desired result is a flattened tummy. (This is the one I use)
Health Benefits of Epsom Salts
1. Distress and Relax the Body
Stress depletes the body of magnesium. Soaking in an Epsom Salt bath is one of the most effective ways to replenish your body with magnesium. Additionally, the magnesium in epsom salts creates serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical that reduces anxiety and promotes calmness.
2. Get rid of pain
Epsom Salts Reduce pain and inflammation. It’s very effective for sore muscles, asthma, and headaches!
3. Detox the Body
The sulfates in Epsom Salt flush toxins and heavy metals from your body. By adding magnesium to your bath creates a process called reverse osmosis which pulls salt and toxic substances out of your body.
