Not only are Epsom Salts kinder and don’t dry out the skin like conventional salt, the absorption of magnesium and sulphur (sulphate) through the skin helps improve the bodies nutrient balance.

Magnesium – regulates more than 325 different enzymes within the body as well as improving the functionality of muscles and nerves.

Ease stress, improve sleep and help concentration are a few of the other known benefits.

Sulphate – is essential for the formation of proteins in joints, for digestive enzymes and in the gut wall lining. Furthermore sulphate is essential to the formation of brain tissue and plays a part in detoxification.
