Detox, Relieve Stress with Epson Salts

Epsom salt can help relieve stress by promoting the production of serotonin and reducing the effects of adrenaline.

Epson salts is different from traditional salt as its actually a combination of naturally-occurring minerals, magnesium and sulfate. It’s composed of tiny, colourless crystals that look like table salt.

Magnesium sulphate is a mineral that many of us are lacking in, as levels have been decreasing over the years.

The lack of this important nutrient in our bodies is due to a combination of issues, including over development of agricultural land that leaches the essential minerals like magnesium and other trace elements from the soil, over use of prescription drugs, consuming more processed food, fast food etc. This is one of the reasons Epsom salt can be an important part in helping to improving one’s health.

It’s wonderful for dry skin, a natural anti-inflammatory for muscles that ache. So easy just make it only takes the time to soak in a warm bath with a cupful of Epson salts.
