Why Epsom Salt?

Bath salts are among the most natural and soothing ways to pamper and heal our bodies. There are plenty of athletes (professional and amateur), personal trainers, and gym junkies who swear that soaking in an Epsom salt bath following physical activity helps ease their muscle pain, reduces inflammation, and promotes recovery.

Epsom salt, which is actually a mineral known as magnesium sulfate.  Magnesium plays a number of important roles in the body and brain, including regulating muscle and nerve function, reducing inflammation, and helping muscle and nerve function. Sulfates help enhance the absorption of nutrients, flush toxins, and help ease migraine headaches.

But, is this just “fake news,” or is there some scientific evidence that magnesium and sulfate can be absorbed through the skin? It’s true! In 2006, a British biochemist at the University of Birmingham named Rosemary Waring undertook a research study to test the validity of claims that magnesium and sulfates can be absorbed through the skin while bathing.

She accomplished this by measuring magnesium and sulfate in the blood before and after people bathed in Epsom salts.  A total of 16 out of 19 people had more magnesium and sulfate in their blood after their baths than before, proving that the minerals from bath salts can be absorbed through human skin.

How to Take an Epsom Salt Bath

With its combination of Epsom salt and essential oils, Prep U Sport Bath Soak will leave your teen or tween feeling fresh and ready to play. Our Sport Soak is the perfect antidote to sore, tense muscles. Just sprinkle a single packet (or two, depending on the size of the tub) into a warm bath and use your hand to stir the water to help dissolve all the grains. Sprinkling it into running water will help it dissolve faster. Then soak for up to 30 minutes, and emerge rested and refreshed.
