The many reasons to include Epsom Salt Baths to your fit lifestyle today. Here are a few.

The healthy benefits of taking Epsom salt baths are tremendous. I just can’t say enough positive things about Epsom salt. And actually, it is not really a salt as it is a naturally occurring mineral compound of magnesium and sulfer. Epsom salt is not only a great remedy for sore aching muscles and ailments, but is also used for many household and beauty uses.

You can also add a cup of Epsom salt in a quart of cold water to make a compress and apply with a washcloth to relieve mild sunburn, mosquito bites, and bee stings. I’ve also put a couple tablespoons of Epsom salt to my outdoor plants and flowers to add some healthy supplemental nutrients to them.

But plants and gardens aren’t the only beneficiaries of Epsom salt. It helps ease stress and also relaxes the body. As well, it relieves pain and muscle cramps, reduces stiffness and soreness in joints . As described in seasalt.com studies show that Epsom salt can help regulate electrolytes in your body, ensuring proper function of muscles, nerves, and enzymes. It also mentions that proper levels of magnesium and sulfate increase the effectiveness of insulin in the body and can help lower the risk or severity of diabetes.

Maintaining proper levels of magnesium in the body also can provide some great sleep! The amount of people with magnesium deficiencies is significant. According to pubmed.gov, nearly half (48%) of the US population consumed less than the required amount of magnesium from food in 2005-2006, and the figure was down from 56% in 2001-2002.
