Naturally Occuring

Magnesium Sulphate is a naturally occuring mineral, known for hudreds of years for its theraputic and beneficial properties which soothe the body, mind and soul.

An Important Mineral in the Body

Magnesium is the second-most abundant element in children’s cells and the fourth-most important positively charged ion in their body. It helps the body regulate over 325 enzymes and plays an important role in organizing many bodily functions, like muscle control, electrical impulses, energy production and the elimination of harmful toxins.

Sulphates play an important role in the development of brain tissue, joint proteins and the proteins that line the walls of the digestive tract. They also stimulate the pancreas to generate digestive enzymes and are thought to help detoxify the body of medicines and environmental contaminants.

Sulphates and magnesium are not easily absorbed from the diet.

Mangesium Deficiency - A Common Problem

Magnesium deficiency is common in children. This can often lead to symptoms of hyperactivity, ADD or ADHD.

There are two main reasons for magnesium deficiency in children:

  • Poor diet: Junk food and modern agricultural techniques have each reduced the amount of magnesium that children intake. In addition refined sugars and food additives stress the nervous system, causing their bodies to use up magnesium supplies.
  • Enhanced levels of excitement, activity and stress: Think about it: football practice, body image, loud music, math exams, peer pressure, disturbing images and events that occur every day - our children are being hit with stress from every possible angle. Since magnesium is used to calm the nervous system, the more stress children experience, the more magnesium their bodies use.

MgSO4 Works In Many Ways

Recent research in Birmingham University has shown that magnesium sulphate, when dissolved in warm water, is absorbed directly through a child’s skin replenishing the magnesium and sulphate levels in the body.

The body uses magnesium to calm the nervous system. The magnesium helps to produce serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical within the brain that creates a feeling of calm and relaxation. Magnesium ions also relax and reduce irritability by lowering the effects of adrenaline. They create a relaxed feeling, improve sleep and concentration, and help muscles and nerves to function properly. In addition, magnesium is essential for the relaxation of muscle fibers. Without this essential mineral, spasms and twitches are a common problem in children. Magnesium helps muscles in the body relax and function properly without disturbances.

The sulphates help flush toxins and heavy metals from the cells, easing muscle pain and helping the child’s body to eliminate harmful substances. Their skin is a highly porous membrane and adding the magnesium sulphate to their bath water triggers a process called reverse osmosis, which actually pulls salt out of their body, and harmful toxins along with it. Research shows that regular use of magnesium sulphates in the bath can have continuous and long term health benefits in children and adults.

Other Health Benefits

Magnesium sulphate has numerous other health and beauty benefits including:

  • relief of muscle pain
  • maintenance of correct calcium levels
  • increased insulin effectivenes
  • improved blood circulation
  • skin exfoliation and cleansing
  • odour neutralisation

It is also useful in the treatment and prevention of:

Aggressive Behavior, Asthma, ADD, ADHD, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Cerebrovascular, Chemical Sensitivity, Chronic Fatigue, Cluster Headaches, Constipation, Cramps, Diabetes, Fluoride Toxicity, Hypertension, Magnesium Deficiency, Multiple Sclerosis, Nystagmus, Psychiatric Disorders, Radiation Protection, Repetitive Strain Injury, Sickle Cell Disease, Stress, Stuttering, Tetanus, Tinnitis, Sound Sensitivity, TMJ, Toxic Shock.

Safe To Use

Bathing in a 1% Solution of Magnesium Sulphate is a safe and easy way to increase sulphate and magnesium levels in the body. The evidence also shows that surplus is naturally removed by the kidneys, just as it is if you have surplus in the diet.
