Magnesium is an essential mineral required for extensive use in the body! It is used to regulate more than 300 reactions that keep our body working properly. The majority of our magnesium stores are found in our bones. As we get magnesium from our food, most people become deficient in this element. Depleted magnesium levels in our water & food, and an imbalance of nutrients in various foods that we consume, have left most of us highly-deficient in Magnesium.
If eating clean, largely organic whole foods isn’t within your budget, an alternate to taking a magnesium supplement (which can irritate the gut and give you a laxative effect) is to Float in Epsom Salts.
Epsom Salt is a naturally occurring mineral found in the ground, made up of magnesium and Sulfate, being a protein builder for your joints. Studies have shown that both Magnesium and Sulfate are easily absorbed through the skin, which makes soaking or floating and ideal way to top up your magnesium levels.

The upside is there are some little known benefits to soaking feet in the managing of symptoms of Athletes foot, removing splinters from feet, treating toenail fungus and easing any pain produced by gout.

Magnesium has long been used as a remedy to help relieve constipation. Most of the minerals that Epsom Salt contains can be absorbed by our body and will reach the blood stream.
