The Medical Benefits of Magnesium Sulfate

By: | Tags:

Whether you come from a family of naturopaths, a long line of medical school grads, or you were regularly instructed to just “walk it off,” you probably noticed a bag of Epsom salts stashed in the medicine cabinet growing up. They may have been pulled out for the occasional foot soak, but the home remedy superstar probably didn’t get the type of regular use it deserves. There’s a reason mom always kept a salt supply handy – everyone from the high school track coach to the World Health Organization recommends […]
