Epsom salt is not actually salt but a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate. It has numerous health benefits since magnesium is the second most abundant element in human cells and the fourth most important positively charged ion in the body. It helps the body regulate over 325 enzymes and plays an important role in organizing many bodily functions.
Many people are deficient in magnesium and your body can actually absorb the magnesium from the epsom salt bath. Magnesium deficiency can contribute to conditions such as osteoporosis, arthritis and joint pain, digestive problems, stress, and fatigue.
