Tip of the week: The Epsom salts trick for sore muscles (PLUS how drinking it can help a sluggish intestine – if you can stand the taste!)

Joey Bull brings us a useful way to help soothe sore muscles after a hard day at the gym and a secret for detoxing your internal organs – if you can stand it

If you’re suffering from muscle soreness, there is an easy fix. Simply pour 2-3 kg of Epsom salts into a warm bath and soak in it and let the salts eliminate the toxins.

This also works as an internal cleanse if you drink a glass of water with a teaspoon of the salts mixed in, but it comes with a very unpleasant taste!
