Epsom Salt Bath Benefits
Epsom salt baths can soothe the body, mind and overall mood by relaxing the nervous system, improving skin conditions, and easing joint, muscle and back pain. Epsom salts can help cuts heal faster, treat cold symptoms like congestion, and draw toxins from the body.
Epsom salts have long been known for their healing properties and for treating several ailments. The “salts” and not actually salts at all but a naturally occurring compound containing magnesium and sulfate, both are easily absorbed through the skin. Soaking in an Epsom salt bath is the ideal way to enjoy its many health benefits.
Magnesium can improve muscle and nerve function and reduce inflammation as well as prevent hardening of the arteries. Magnesium can be absorbed through the skin, increasing the magnesium levels in the body. Magnesium helps to produce a mood-elevating chemical called serotonin. Serotonin creates a feeling of calm and relaxation and can help with sleep and concentration.
Sulfates help flush toxins out of the body, improving the absorption of nutrients and may ease the pain of migraine headaches and menstrual cramps.
