Science of the Salt
Many Americans are magnesium deficient. Doctors say it stems largely from the increasing prevalence of processed foods in our diets. Today, 68% of U.S. adults consume less than the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of magnesium, according to the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, and 19% consume less than half of the RDA. Epsom salt is made up of naturally occurring minerals magnesium and sulfate, which can help improve health in numerous 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. Sulfate is essential for many biological processes, helping to release toxins and helping form proteins in joints and brain tissue.
Researchers say that soaking in an Epsom salt bath is a safe, easy way to increase the body's levels of both magnesium and sulfate.
