dreamstime_xs_22426922 People have been taking Epsom salt baths for centuries, and its restorative properties have been passed down from generation to generation. When floating, Epsom salt is absorbed through the skin but does not dehydrate the body as table salt would. Soaking in Epsom salts provides the following benefits:

  • Improved skin and hair health
  • Relief from muscle and joint soreness

Benefits of Magnesium

Magnesium is involved in hundreds of functions throughout our bodies. With soils becoming increasingly mineral deficient, it is estimated that more than 50% of North Americans are magnesium deficient. Magnesium is used in our body to:

  • Regulate and catalyze over 300 enzymes
  • Facilitate calcium absorption – to support bone growth and strength
  • Produce insulin – helping to prevent diabetes

Absorbing magnesium while floating in the Epsom salt solution may also aid in the following:

  • Asthma prevention
  • Osteoporosis prevention
  • Stroke prevention
  • Heart attack prevention
  • Reduction of migraine symptoms
  • Diminishing the severity of PMS
