The major components of Epsom Salt are magnesium and sulphur which perform all sorts of biological functions. The two elements break apart and separate in liquid.
Sufficient sulphur is essential to detox the body of toxins and waste. Low levels may lead to a ‘backlog’ of toxins, which in turn can affect our central nervous system. Most sulphur supplements are difficult for the body to absorb and therefore have minimal effect. However, Epsom Salt provides sulphates in a readily absorbable form to help the body rid itself of waste products and toxins by making them water soluble and therefore easily excreted.
Magnesium helps to regulate the activity of more than 325 enzymes, and performs a vital role in many bodily functions, from muscle control and electrical impulses to energy production and the elimination of harmful toxins.
It improves nerve function by regulating electrolytes and is necessary to maintain proper calcium levels in the blood. Excess adrenaline and stress are believed to drain magnesium, a natural stress reliever, from the body. Magnesium is necessary for the body to bind adequate amounts of serotonin, a mood elevating chemical within the brains that creates a feeling of wellbeing and relaxation.
