Epson salt is made of magnesium sulfate and magnesium impacts over 300 enzyme reactions and is found in all of your tissues, but mainly in your bones, muscles, and brain.
Epson salt bath is an inexpensive calming remedy with numerous benefits whether you have PMS symptoms, are stressed out, or can’t fall asleep.
1. Helps to stop diarrheas
Especially for individual who are struggling with hypermotility or diarrhea need to be very cautious of using any type of oral magnesium supplementation because it can promote it even more except maybe magnesium chloride which tastes terrible and not everyone can tolerate it. It can therefore be a struggle to boost magnesium (if you don’t have access to an IV )
2. Helps with insomnia
An Epson salt bath can be a customized sleep hygiene interventional plan. It is a good inexpensive old fashion lifestyle healing choice and a great way to take magnesium through the skin instead of the GI tract and is at the same time extremely relaxing to infuse the body with extra magnesium. It promotes a higher level of Gaba, which is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that calms down the chaos in the brain in order to help people to relax and fall asleep.
3. Helps with IBS symptoms
It can be a wonderful way to boost bioavailable sulfate into the body bypassing the GI tract.
An individual can struggle with getting the sulfate from the diet because they either don't metabolize sulfate very well or have an overgrowth of hydrogen sulfide-producing microbes in their gut. This can be challenging so an individual can really get exacerbating IBS symptoms when consuming these otherwise helping foods
4. Epson salt helps you to de-stress
Any form of stress depletes the body of magnesium.
If an individual is not tolerating sulfate food it is a great way to get it into the body with an Epson Salt bath.
5. helps heal heel spurs
Soaking either the foot alone or the entire body in Epsom salt can help soothe the pain and help to replete magnesium levels. Magnesium is an essential mineral for bone formation and calcium utilization.
When purchasing Epsom salt I recommend purchasing 100 % magnesium sulfate. Pour approximately 1 cup of Epsom salt into a bathtub while it fills with hot water. Soak your body for about 15 minutes to get all the benefits it provides.
Until next time
