Our 2 salt blend is a mixture of magnesium sulphate, sodium bicarbonate and borax.
The two main ingredients of Epsom salt are magnesium and sulfate. It is believed the combination of both ingredients stimulates detoxification pathways. Magnesium is a natural substance that aids a variety of bodily functions, including the removal of toxins. Sulfate can strengthen the walls of the digestive tract and make releasing toxins easier.
Sodium bicarbonate has been shown to have antifungal properties and may help reduce irritating germs. It may also soften the skin and reduce itchiness. Its superpowers come from a two-letter term: pH. That stands for “potential (or power) of hydrogen” to make something either an acid or a base (alkaline). Sodium bicarbonate is an alkaline substance. When it mixes with an acid, it alters the pH level. That’s why it can quickly soothe an upset stomach or cover a bad smell
Research suggests that boron is involved in vitamin D and estrogen metabolism and may influence cognitive function. In alternative medicine, boron supplements are sometimes said to help with bone mineral density and prevent and/or treat the following health problems:
- High cholesterol
- Menopausal symptoms
- Rheumatoid arthritis
Epsom Salt Baths for Children with Autism
Some research has shown that children with autism might benefit from Epsom salt. One study found that people with autism have a deficient detoxification pathway that uses sulphate to get rid of toxins, and the pathway can get clogged when there is not enough sulphate. Bathing in Epsom salt helps raise sulphate levels in the body, which can get the detoxification pathway flowing again.
