An easy and pleasant way to get magnesium, especially for people who have trouble taking pills, is an Epsom salts baths. In your usual bath, pour 1-2 cups of Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) into your bath water, and then agitate it so that it dissolves. Epsom salts are a type of salt—though very different than table salt, which is sodium chloride—so don’t do this if you have any open cuts or wounds. It might sting. Make sure to linger in the bath rather than quickly hopping in and out, to give time for you to absorb the magnesium through your skin. That’s right, you can actually get super-nutrition from your bath!
Epsom salts are available at your drugstore and sometimes from a superstore like Costco®. While Epsom salts are not a replacement for taking a magnesium supplement—you’ll absorb much more from taking a magnesium pill than you would ever absorb through your skin—it’s pleasant and relaxing. For people who, for whatever reason, are unable to take a magnesium supplement, Epsom salts baths are the best alternative.
Ideally, you wouldn’t do this only when you have cramps. Like taking a vitamin, it’s important that the magnesium have a chance to be absorbed into your cells, steadily, over a period of time. To accomplish this with Epsom salts, you should try to take an Epsom salts bath 2-3 times per week. Wait till you try it: we think you’ll find it’s surprisingly more relaxing than a regular bath, and it’s healthy for all of you!
