When tight muscles and unforgiving knots make warming up for a run impossible, I turn to Magnesium Chloride Flakes or Epsom Salt and the bathtub. I notice a difference after just one bath, but it usually takes me 2-3 more baths over a 1-2 week period for the tightness to be completely gone.
To give this a try…
Pour 1-3 cups into the tub filled with warm water and soak for at least 15 minutes. Since I use hot water, I drink at least 8oz water when I get out.
- Magnesium absorbed by your skin can help relieve soreness, achy joints, and tightness.
- Magnesium Chloride Flakes are more easily absorbed than Epsom Salt.
- Magnesium Chloride Flakes can be purchased at Whole Foods.
- Epsom Salt can be purchased from most pharmacies and grocery stores.
