You just had the BEST “run” day ever.
The day has gone smoothly….there is a hot bath running.
You lie down and quickly fall asleep.
A BIG leg cramp hits and you bolt upright in response.
If you’ve been here for more than a hot minute, you know that no one loves a long, hot bath more than I.
I love the water HOT and the Epsom Salt plain…
Why Epsom salts?
Epsom salts do more than make your bath relaxing. Epsom salt is Magnesium.
Magnesium acts as a natural calcium blocker which enables our muscles to relax (or contract). When your body lacks adequate Magnesium, you get those awful cramps.
A few of the other benefits of Magnesium:
Supports a healthy immune system.
Keeps your heartbeat steady.
Helps keep your bones strong.
Aids in the production of energy & protein.
As always, if pain persists please contact your healthcare provider.
