Do Epsom Salts Really Work?

Here at Melrose Muscle Therapy, we have individual bags of muscle soaks for sale at $1 a piece.  Three different scents, same effectiveness. Big question I get a lot is...

Does soaking in Epsom Salts really work?

Soaking in Epsom Salts can give your body a boost in Magnesium.  Most of us are deficient in this mineral.
Magnesium helps keep us pain free in many ways.  It helps us keep our bones strong.  It helps us fight against bone loss.  It help keep our heart healthy.

Can you really absorb Magnesium through taking a bath? Yes you can.  Here is a link to a small study that shows that you can absorb Magnesium through taking an Epsom Salt soak in as little as 12 minutes a day.

The Epsom Salt Council (did you know this existed?) recommends bathing in Epsom Salt three times a week in order to get your recommended amount of Magnesium.

So, would you like to try a soak?  Let us know how you feel after a relaxing Epsom Salt bath.
