1 of the 3 majors [vitamin D3, iodine, magnesium] that impact the function of nearly every cell in the human body.
Impact the 3 major areas of human functioning……the brain, the nervous system, the immune system. Also the major items most widely estimated to be in population-wide deficiency in America.
Epsom salt bath = 10 minutes hot bath in epsom salts [magnesium absorbed through skin]. The heat of the hot bath provides stimuli for production of nerve growth factor, brain derived neurotrophic factor, isoforms of growth hormone, isoforms of insulin-like growth factor-1, and blood flow for regenerative functions in brain, nerve, immune system.
“After initial pilot studies, all volunteers took baths (temperatures 50-55°C) and stayed in the bath for 12 minutes.” “….soaking in Epsom salts therefore increases blood magnesium concentrations…”
“…..all individuals had significant rises in plasma magnesium and sulfate at a level of 1% Epsom salts. This equates to 1g MgS04/100ml water; 600g Epsom salts/60 litres, the standard size UK bath taken in this project (~15 US gallons). However, most volunteers had significantly raised Mg/S0 levels on baths with 400g MgS0 added. Above the 600g/bath level, volunteers complained that the water felt ‘soapy’.”
“The values obtained suggest that most people would find maximal benefit by bathing 2 or 3 times/week, using 500-600g Epsom salts each time.”
“Bathing in Epsom salts is a safe and easy way to increase sulfate and magnesium levels in the body.”
