I don't have any (though thought about getting some the other day ) but I was curious to know if they actually do anything for muscle soreness.
I found this article. http://saveyourself.ca/articles/reality-check s/eps... It's quite interesting. And rather funny in parts!

I have low magnesium levels, even with a magnesium supplement, so I add epsom salt to my baths. While the warm water helps my muscles, an amount is absorbed. Here's an article that links to a study about how epsom salt is absorbed. Those with optimal levels of magnesium aren't helped, though. http://www.livestrong.com/article/519464-can-yo ur-...

It seems that Michelle's article is taken from Dr. Waring's research that was discussed in Tam's link.

I have no idea about any of it, but I have to say I have a sneaking bias in favour of Epsom salts, for no better reason than that I went to school in Epsom. Yes, THAT Epsom, folks.

The main point was whether or not they do anything for muscle soreness and the answer seems to be, no, not really. A hot bath without Epsom salt will do just as well.

They did mention that research. Cracked me up when he got to that part and mentioned up your bum.

And up your ya-ya.

They did say it makes the water all silky smooth.

You should indeed!

SOME of it is actually useful and helpful as well.

If I did drink coffee, I would never drink it again!
