Salt Soak: The secret weapon for recovery

Sam Galyen | Brand Ambassador

Your competitive advantage 

It would not be an exaggeration to say all true athletes love their sport and are dedicated to the game while on the field. After a hard-fought game or practice, when our bodies are calling out for help, what we do off the field can have the biggest impact. A light five-minute stretching session and a couple 32 ounce Gatorades may be easy and taste good on the way down, but at the end of the day this regimen will not repair your body and get you ready for the next game. The key is a common, but often overlooked solution: Epsom Salts.

They are completely natural and do not expose you to any harmful chemicals or nanoparticles 

How it works

Taking a 15-20 minute soak in a warm bath with Epsom salts provides magnesium which reduces pain/swelling, promotes sleep, soothes the skin, and accelerates muscle recovery. Magnesium is a nutrient vital to a whole array of bodily functions that are crucial to an athlete’s success, such as muscle and nerve function and the production of body repairing proteins which aid in the prevention of cramps. When you give it all you got and fully exert yourself during a game or practice, you put stress on your muscles in the form of various small tears.  These tears bring about the accumulation of lactic acid in your muscles which is the primary cause of soreness. Magnesium from Epsom salts penetrate these sore areas and help your body process lactic acid, which helps alleviate your muscle soreness leaving you fresh and ready to play. In addition to the helpful properties of Epsom salts, they are completely natural and do not expose you to any harmful chemicals or nanoparticles. Next time you’re feeling the burn of a long season and need that essential recovery boost, stop doubling down on electrolytes and half-hearted yoga routines and build Epsom salt soaks into your training and recovery regimen.
