3 Reasons to Immerse in an Epsom Salt Bath
Epsom salt is a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and
sulfate. Studies have shown that magnesium and sulfate are both readily absorbed
through the skin, making Epsom salt baths an easy and ideal way to enjoy the
wonderful health benefits. Magnesium regulates the activity of over 325 enzymes in the body, reduces inflammation, and decreases muscle pain and fatigue. Sulfates help improve the absorption of nutrients and flush toxins.
