"Magnesium is the anti-stress mineral," Dean said. "It helps you sleep, relaxes your muscles, improves your digestion, balances your blood pressure and gives you more energy. And Epsom salt is a safe and easy way for people of all ages – including babies and pregnant women – to increase the body's magnesium levels."

About Epsom saltEpsom salt – actually magnesium sulfate – is one of the most versatile household products, with uses ranging from creating at-home spa treatments to soothing aching muscles to helping start or improve gardens to nurturing your health. It's been used therapeutically for hundreds of years, and it's gaining a new generation of fans looking for a safe, economical alternative in a sea of expensive, over-the-counter remedies. Epsom salt is easy to use, easy to find in your local pharmacy or grocery store and it costs about the same per use as a cup of coffee.
