Epsom Salt 2 Kg - resealable standup pouch
Epsom Salt's origins began as one of the first natural spas in the UK, in the early 17th Century. Tradition tells that the water was discovered by Henry Wicker, a farmer who noticed that his cattle would not drink the water, and on tasting it himself noticed the bitter quality unlike ordinary water which is due to the rich mineral content.
Epsom soon became renowned as a spa destination and people would flock from all over the country for up to a week at a time to drink the 'medicinal, healing waters' from the Epsom well.
Although no longer sourced in Epsom due to the wellbeing closed in the early 20th century, Magnesium and Sulfate are found in many natural sources and have since been combined and used widely in medicine and healthcare for a wide variety of applications.
Benefits of Bathing with Epsom Salt
Many athletes/sports people use Epsom salt to help their bodies/muscles recover.
Epsom salt is made up of magnesium and sulphate, which can help improve health in many ways. A lack of magnesium which helps regulate the activity of more than 300 enzymes in the body can contribute to high blood pressure, hyperactivity, heart problems and other health issues, doctors warn. Sulphate is essential for many biological processes. It helps to flush toxins and form proteins in joints, brain tissue and mucin proteins.
Why Epsom Salt Works
Doctors and researchers say that soaking in an Epsom salt bath is a safe, easy way to increase the body's levels of both magnesium and sulphate.
