Sore Winter Muscles? Epsom Salts!

A while back I heard that adding two handfuls of epsom salts to your bath was an excellent way to relieve sore muscles.

Somewhat surprisingly, this epsom salt remedy works incredibly well. If my muscles get sore from a strenuous workout, the epsom salt soaks provide a warm numbing effect on the pain. This at-home remedy is one of my favorite to highly recommend.

This is one of the best things you can and should do for your body. And epsom salts are very inexpensive.

HOW-TO
Soak in a hot bath with about 2 handfuls of Epsom salts added to the water. Fifteen minutes will do.
You can also soak a towel in salt water and apply directly to a muscle.
HOW THEY WORK
Epsom Salt contains magnesium and sulfates. Many modern diets are deficient in the important minerals, magnesium and sulfates. Increasing levels of magnesium may help to improve circulatory health, flush toxins and heavy metals from the cells, improve nerve function by regulating electrolytes, raise the body's levels of serotonin (mood enhancer), improve sleep and concentration, regulate the body's enzymes, improve oxygen use, lower blood pressure, reduce muscle pain and inflammation, and help muscles and nerves to function properly. Sulfates are used by the body to flush out toxins, improve the absorption of nutrients, form joint proteins, and to help prevent and ease migraine headaches.
