What is epsom salt for?
Epsom salt was named for a bitter saline spring at Epsom in Surrey, England. It is one of many naturally occurring mineral salts, a compound of magnesium and sulfate. Epsom salt is good for the mind. Epsom salt helps stabilize mood and relieve stress, anxiety and depression.
Epsom salt, also known as bath salt, has three main uses; bath, beauty, and as a laxative. When dissolved in water, it releases magnesium and sulfate ions. Studies seem to indicate that the best way to take advantage of Epsom is to consume with water; bath and beauty claims appear to be unfounded.
