I Tried This Today and I Liked It..

For years I’ve heard various people say that they benefit from Epsom salt baths. But.. since I’ve never been much of a “bath person”, I didn’t get around to trying it until today.

I have to say I really liked it. I stayed in for about 30 minutes and my body got more and more relaxed as time went on. Then I went to the gym afterwards and played two games of full court basketball. I was surprised that my left leg, which was a little sore after running yesterday, didn’t feel inflamed at all.

After this experience, I started reading about the benefits of Epsom salt baths and I was pretty impressed. People report less pain, less stress, more relaxation, better sleep and more. I can even feel that my muscles are still more relaxed than usual and it’s been several hours since I got out.

Epsom salt baths appear to help increase the bodies magnesium and sulfate concentrations, which helps to initiate many positive effects. There seems to be a little bit of controversy since there hasn’t been much in the way of clinical studies, but anecdotally many people notice benefits from it.

If you’ve never tried it before, I recommend giving it a shot a few times to see how you feel. Also, be sure to check out this article that explains some of the benefits in greater detail.
