Epsom salt: losing weight in a bathtub? How this should work

Sounds so wonderfully easy: A bath in Epsom salt from the English city of Espomo, which is already shedding pounds. The stars reportedly swear by adding a bath to lose weight, which is available without a prescription. Do you lose weight fast while bathing? We looked closely.

First of all: Epsom salt or Epsom salt is not a normal table salt consisting solely of sodium and chlorine. Instead, it is magnesium sulfate from magnesium, sulfur and oxygen. It is a bit reminiscent of the more famous Glauber's salt (sodium sulfate), which is used in detox diets for detoxification. This effect also has Epsom salt, which therefore helps with internal anti-blockade use. It also increases the level of magnesium in the body.

How Epsom salt works

But this is about external application. Epsom salt bath is definitely a treat. It dissolves magnesium and develops its positive effect. Makes skin more beautiful, relaxes, relieves stress and relieves pain. Therefore, it is also recommended for pain or insomnia.

Magnesium should also contribute to muscle recovery and regeneration. This is why athletes like to use Epsom salt bath after competitions and workouts to prevent muscle soreness. This effect was demonstrated in a 2015 study by an athlete at the University of Birmingham. After two weeks of regular bathing with Epsom salts, there was even a slight increase in magnesium levels. This proves that magnesium can penetrate the skin.

Anyone preparing for fasting should clean their bowels. One of the methods for doing this next to the enema is Glauber's salt: it works quickly and reliably, but doesn't need to be used too often.

Can Epsom Salt Help Weight Loss?

This penetration of the skin is also an important question when asked if Epsom salt can lose weight. Proponents of Epsom salts assume that dissolved magnesium passes through the skin into the body and stimulates the pancreas here. The gland should then produce more digestive enzymes and thus help with weight loss. Whether enough magnesium penetrates the skin during bathing and whether it has any effect on the pancreas at all has not been proven. Internally, this effect cannot be achieved.

The latest trend: losing weight with infused water

No wonder it is a cure for weight loss

There is no reason not to try it alone, especially since enough of the positive effects of Epsom salt have been proven! And it is a natural addition to the bath, which is preferable to many artificial products.

Magnesium sulfate is available over-the-counter at pharmacies and health food stores. In the Epsom salt bath, add about two cups of magnesium sulfate to warm bath water. Add a few drops of essential oil for good scent. Then you can comfortably settle into the bathroom. It should be at least 15 to 20 minutes or more.

But you wouldn't necessarily expect to lose pounds. A balanced diet and enough exercise remain the more appropriate candidates here.
