True REST Float Spa uses the highest quality Epsom salts in our float pods. But you may be wondering what the benefit of Epsom salts are and why they are integral for providing the best float therapy experience.
Epsom salts have been used for centuries for cleaning, digestive issues, stimulating lymph drainage, treating inflammation and promoting the absorption of magnesium. Every cell in your body needs magnesium in order to function. Magnesium, a major component of Epsom salt, also helps to regulate the activity of more than 325 enzymes. Magnesium also performs a vital role in orchestrating many bodily functions, from muscle control and electrical impulses to energy production and the elimination of harmful toxins.
Magnesium levels have dropped by at least half in the last century because of changes in agriculture and diet. Industrial farming has depleted magnesium from soil and the typical diet contains only a fraction of the magnesium consumed by our ancestors. 57% of the country’s population does not meet the U.S. recommended dietary allowance for dietary intake of magnesium. In fact, magnesium is more quickly depleted from our bodies now due the high concentrations of fat, sugar, salt and protein found in modern diets.
Health professionals report that raising your magnesium and sulphate levels may:
- Improve heart and circulatory health and can the risk of blood clots while also lowering blood pressure and improving oxygen use.
- Flush toxins and heavy metals from the body, helping the body to eliminate harmful substances and improving the absorption of nutrients.
- Help muscles and nerves to function properly by regulating electrolytes. Calcium is the main conductor for electrical current in the body, and magnesium is required to maintain proper calcium levels in the blood.
- Ease stress and improve sleep and concentration. Magnesium is necessary for the body to generate adequate serotonin levels.
- Prevent or ease migraine headaches.
Floating in a True REST Float Pod with a specialized Epsom salt solution is one of the most effective means of making the magnesium in your body readily available. During flotation therapy, magnesium is absorbed through the skin due to natural molecular diffusion. Your body naturally regulates and optimized your magnesium levels so there is no overload effect from floating in an Epsom salt solution for an extended period of time.
