Magnesium is an essential mineral that many of us are deficient in. A mineral known for soothing and calming. Here are 3 ways to enjoy the benefits of magnesium.
Soothe Sore Muscles
After a hike, long day on your feet, or after a strain or sprain of any kind you can hop in a bathtub with 2 cups of Epsom salt. Soak for at least 20 minutes, but 40 minutes for the full benefits. To alleviate pain and inflammation in a smaller area like your foot or ankle or strained from typing hands and wrists—soak in a small porcelain basin.
Increasing the amount of magnesium in your diet by taking a supplement like Natural Vitality by Calm will help to suppress stress hormones and alleviate internal pain and inflammation. It is a mineral that plays a vital roll in balancing our bodies from the inside out and if you are deficient you will experience rapid results.
If you are feeling constipated dissolve a teaspoon or two in Epsom salt. This is a healthier option than most laxative pills, which can dehydrate your body. You can also take Epsom salt orally once a week to cleanse your colon and kidneys.
As with most vitamins and minerals, there are different types of magnesium, and the goal is to have a balanced mix.
