Magnesium (in Epsom salts)
Magnesium is used by the body in every cell and is needed in order for us to function optimally. It is also essential for strong bones, healthy heart, muscle and brain function and a deficiency can cause low mood and anxiety. Magnesium helps the brain relax by regulating brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) including melatonin and gaba, which are involved with the sleep cycle. In this way, magnesium helps you to achieve deep and restful sleep.
Sulphur (in Epsom salts)
Sulphur is one of the most abundant minerals in the body. A sulphur deficiency can create or aggravate a variety of conditions including arthritis, acne, brittle nails and hair, poor memory, low mood, digestive issues, rashes and poor wound healing. Sulphur also helps us to repair our DNA and to recycle our main antioxidant glutathione which helps to prevent cell damage.
