According to the Royal Society of Chemistry;
'The summer of 1618 saw England gripped by drought, but as Henry Wicker, a local cowherd, walked across Epsom Common he came across a pool of water from which his thirsty cattle refused to drink. The water tasted bitter and on evaporation yielded a salt which had a remarkable effect: it was a laxative. This became the famous Epsom's salts (magnesium sulfate, MgSO4) and a treatment for constipation for the next 350 years.'
Fast forward 400 years, Epsom salts baths are now popular amongst the rich and famous, models, actresses and athletes as a mild diuretic it’s a great detox soak aiding in the elimination of toxins and fatigue from the body.
Magnesium as a mineral is not well understood and taken for granted. Our bodies cannot naturally produce magnesium which means we need a supplement or alternative solution to increase our magnesium levels.
