The Bath Everyone Should Be Taking

Written by rosetta

Everyone should be taking Epsom Salt baths.

Epsom salt, which is, ironically enough, not a salt but a mineral compound of magnesium and sulphur, is a natural remedy for a host of health ailments.

Studies have indicated that the magnesium-sulphur combination are readily absorbable in the skin — and thus, a bath containing this salt-compound is a wonderful, easy way to gain a ton of health benefits.

Below are seven health benefits of Epsom Salt:

1. Relieves stress: Stress, which drains the body’s magnesium deposits and increases adrenaline levels, is relieved when a compound such as Epsom Salt is dissolved in warm water; the minerals replenish lost levels of magnesium in the body, and the body becomes more relaxed.

2. Eliminates toxins: The sulfates in Epsom Salt flush out heavy metals as well as other toxins from the body, which is why Epsom Salt baths are often used in cleanses. For a weekly detox bath, add 2 cups of Epsom Salt to bathwater and soak for 10 minutes.

3. Improves Insulin levels: Magnesium and sulfate strengthen insulin functioning, and thus, help prevent Diabetes.

4. Relieves muscle cramps: Due to Epsom Salt’s anti-inflammatory properties, an Epsom Salt bath is a great way to soothe sore muscles.

5. Helps nerve function: Epsom Salt helps regulate electrolytes in your body which, in turn, strengthens muscles, nerves, and enzymes.

6. Relieves constipation: Epsom Salt increases water in the intestines, creating a laxative effect in the body; this is why you may see Epsom Salt baths in colon cleanses, specifically. Note: To see results, you must take Epsom Salt orally.

7. Prevents blood cots: Epsom Salt improves blood circulation as well as protects the elasticity of arteries. In doing so, Epsom Salt decreases the risk of heart disease.
