Epsom Salt (magnesium sulfate heptahydrate) is a water-soluble, bitter-tasting, white or colourless compound. It is available at pharmacies and drugstores and lists a number of benefits:-During times of stress, the level of magnesium is depleted while adrenaline is increased in the body. When dissolved in warm bathwater, Epsom Salt replenishes this level of magnesium while the magnesium ions help to produce serotonin for lowering adrenaline, thus creating a feeling of calm and relaxation.
In addition, Epsom Salt temporarily relieves muscle aches and stiffness of joints. The magnesium in Epsom Salt acts as a muscle relaxant and relieves muscle aches.
