What is Epsom Salt?
Epsom salt, which also goes by the name magnesium sulfate, is a chemical compound made up of magnesium, sulfur, and oxygen. Its less-scientific name actually stems from its prevalence in the village of Epsom in Surrey, England, one of the country’s first spa towns, where people came to “take the waters” from a bitter saline spring thought to have medicinal properties.
The Benefits of Epsom Salts
One of the most common uses of Epsom salt is adding it to a warm bath to help soothe muscle pain, soreness or discomfort. After exercising, the benefit of Epsom salt comes from the magnesium sulfate. Magnesium regulates your electrolyte balance, which is needed for calcium regulation and potassium absorption. In an Epsom salt bath, the magnesium ions are released in the water, which may help the body use up glucose and lactic acid, and provides relief from soreness, inflammation, and muscle cramps.
Epsom Salts contain magnesium, the fourth most abundant mineral in the body. It is involved in more than 325 biochemical reactions that benefit your heart and nervous system. Adequate magnesium levels are essential for sleep and stress management, likely because magnesium helps your brain produce neurotransmitters that induce sleep and reduce stress. Low magnesium levels may negatively affect sleep quality and stress. Some people claim that taking Epsom salt baths can reverse these issues by allowing your body to absorb magnesium through the skin. Magnesium also helps your body produce melatonin, a hormone that promotes sleep. Athletes are prone to low magnesium levels, so health professionals often recommend that they include magnesium in their daily routine to ensure optimal levels.
