Healthy Nut - Relax It


Whether it is from working out or stress, I have sore muscles! And the best way to relax my tense sore muscles is magnesium and Epsom salt baths!

1. Magnesium oil - I will use 8 sprays of this 1-2 times a day, on any area that is sore...usually for me it is my neck & back! Once you spray it on, leave it on for 20 minutes, then shower or wipe off the applied area.

2. Epsom Salt baths - Place 2-4 cups of Epsom salt in the bath while the water is running so it can dissolve. I also put 5-10 drops of lavender in the water too, lavender is a great for stress relief! Then soak and relax in the tub!

3. Magnesium supplement - Magnesium is known to help relax your body especially your nervous system. So I take 200mg in the morning and 500mg at night to help relax those muscles and nerves of mine. It can also help with migraines when paired with riboflavin & CoQ10. The best way to know if you are taking too much magnesium is by your bathroom habits...too much magnesium will make you have to go to the bathroom a little more than normal!
