Epsom salt is named after the saline spring at Epsom in Surrey, England where it was discovered. Epsom salt is a naturally occurring mineral compound composed of magnesium and sulfate, hence it is also called magnesium sulfate.
Epsom salt has been well-documented through the years for its health and well-being benefits, and has been helpful in household chores and gardening task, too.*
As a dietary supplement
Magnesium plays an array of roles in the body. It helps to regulate enzymes that facilitate various functions in the body.*
While bones and teeth are heavily reliant on calcium to maintain structure and strength, calcium absorption is enhanced by magnesium. It also helps to regulate heart beat and supports normal blood pressure levels. And sulfates help to improve nutrient absorption.*
As a laxative
Magnesium sulfate increases the amount of water in the intestines, thereby encouraging elimination for occasional constipation relief. This product generally produces bowel movements within 30 minutes to 6 hours after use.*
Directions for use as saline laxative: Take up to 1 tablespoon, or as directed by a health professional, and make sure to drink one glass (8 fl. oz.) or more of water each time.
As a body detoxifier
Because the skin is a porous membrane, Epsom salt added to bathwater initiates the reverse osmosis process, which draws out toxins from the body. This includes the elimination of heavy metals from the body.*
For healing and relaxation
Epsom salt added to bathwater can be quite soothing to a tired body. Magnesium sulfate is readily absorbed through the skin. As a soaking agent it helps to calm the nervous system, reduces swelling, and relaxes muscles. It can also offer relief to minor sprains and bruises, and skin irritation from bug bites, sunburn or poisonous plants.*
