22 Left in stock
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body, the first being Calcium. It is involved in more than 325 biochemical reactions that benefit your heart and nervous system.
Epsom Salts possess an enormous array of health benefits and applications ranging from the cosmetic to the cultivation of plants.
Many people do not consume enough magnesium. Even if you do, factors such as dietary phytates and oxalates can interfere with how much your body absorbs. While Magnesium Sulfate has value as a Magnesium supplement, some people claim that Magnesium may be better absorbed via Epsom salt baths than when taken by mouth.
