How Epsom Salt Bath Benefits ADD/ADHD

How Epsom Salt Bath Benefits ADD/ADHD

ADD/ADHD are usually deficient in their B vitamins and minerals. One quick and easy remedy for magnesium deficiency is an Epsom Salt Bath. The National Academy of Sciences estimates the average male gets 80% of the magnesium required for good health while females get only  70%. And in the last century magnesium levels have dropped more than 50%. This is due to intensive farming that depletes magnesium from the soil. Diets that contain small amounts of magnesium but are rich in fat, salt, sugar, and protein accelerating the depletion of magnesium from our bodies. Calcium also drains magnesium from the body to help with absorption.

So what’s a cheap and quick remedy? Next time you take a bath add 2 cups of Epsom salt and do this three times a week soaking at least 12 minutes each time. 

Epsom Salt Bath may:

  1. Ease stress
  2. Improve sleep
  3. Improve concentration
  4. Regulate activity of 325+ enzymes
  5. Prevent artery hardening & blood clots
  6. Improve oxygen
  7. Reduce Inflammation & muscle cramps
  8. Make insulin more effective
