What is Epsom salt?

Unlike a traditional salt, Epsom salt is a mineral compound of sulfate and magnesium and technically termed as magnesium sulfate. It consists of small, colorless crystals that look like table salt, but quite different than a table salt, which is made up of sodium chloride. Magnesium sulfate is an essential nutrient for our bodies to improve overall health, but it lacks in our diet. But we can intake in through our skin with the help of Epsom salt, simply by soaking in a warm bath with Epsom salt, which has renowned healing and therapeutic properties.


Benefits of Epsom salt:

1. Relax Your Body

When you soak in Epsom salt bath, it can be absorbed by your skin to work inside the body. In the body, magnesium ions start to relieve stress by inducing production of serotonin and decreasing effects of adrenaline. Magnesium produces energy in cells and helps your body to feel rejuvenated and relaxed.

2. Relieve Pain and Cramping

Epsom salts, when absorbed through the skin, can help in relieving muscle pain, tension, and inflammation of joints. You can submerge your body in warm Epsom salt bath to get rid of body cramps.Even tired and sore feet can also be cured by soaking them in warm Epsom salt water.

3. Muscle and Nerve Function

Epsom salt can aid enzymatic functions of your body and help in regulating fluid retention in skin cells. It also helps in facilitating body’s use of calcium to transmit chemical signals throughout the nervous system.
