Back to The Gym? Look After Your Muscles With Epsom Salts
Are you kicking off the new year by going back to the gym?
Have you, like many others, made the decision to make 2023 a year prioritising your health and fitness?
If you're determined to get back into exercising again then it’s important to take the right steps beforehand.
Vigorous exercise can cause delayed onset muscles stiffness (DOMS) which many people of all fitness levels experience. Did you know that epsom salts can help prevent this and reduce the effects? Our reviving bath salts contain magnesium sulphate, which is known to soothe and relax aching muscles.
Read on to find out more about the benefits of epsom salts and why they can aid you in your fitness journey.
The benefits of bathing in epsom salts
Making bathing in our reviving epsom salts part of your exercise routine can benefit your body in a variety of ways. Bathing in magnesium sulphate after you exercise relaxes and cleanses your overworked muscles, which is very effective especially if you’ve gone overboard. So you no longer need to worry about intense stiffness.
As well as relieving muscle stiffness, here are a few more of the key benefits to using epsom salts before or after exercising:
- Helps to prevent injury and muscle cramps.
- Soothes DOMS and muscles stiffness.
- Relaxes your mind as well as your body.
- Helps you get a good night's sleep.
- Helps speed up exercise recovery.
You can also choose to boost your bath further with our Recover Salts. Epsom Salts infused with Arnica, Eucalyptus and White Willow to soothe swelling and act as a natural analgesic (painkiller).
