A magnesium deficiency can sneak up on you and, unfortunately, you’re probably not getting enough through your diet.
Fear not: a magnesium bath can make a huge difference. As a bonus, your muscles and skin will thank you, too!
Many people might not realize that magnesium salts and Epsom salts are very similar but slightly different – but which is right for you?
Studies show that 75% of Americans aren’t meeting their daily magnesium intake requirements. The rest of the developed world probably isn’t doing much better.
Why? Well, it’s hard to get magnesium through diet alone unless you eat a lot of seeds and nuts. But there’s a catch 22: these foods are also often high in fat so that makes it difficult to get enough of their valuable magnesium.
Although severe magnesium deficiencies are rare, symptoms that you’re lacking this vital nutrient may include:
Unlike a lot of other nutrients, magnesium can easily be absorbed through the skin.
This vital mineral plays an important role in the body regulating blood pressure, heart beat, nerve functions, protein synthesis, and muscle function. Plus, magnesium plays an important role in vitamin D and calcium synthesis in the body – so it’s very important in terms of bone health.
Adding a magnesium bath to your nightly routine is a great way to decompress at the end of the day – in more ways than one. Meeting your daily magnesium intake requirements with a relaxing bath comes with many benefits such as:
Don’t forget to add a few drops of some potent essential oils to your bath. Manuka oil and lavender make a great combination for reducing stress and healing the skin.
Although they’re similar, magnesium flakes (magnesium chloride) and Epsom salts are slightly different and affect your body in unique ways.
Now you’re all set to enjoy your first magnesium bath – just add some essential oils and let the stress melt away!
