Why?: I am not aware of any medical indication that would warrant internal use of Epsom salts on a regular basis. Some medical conditions do improve with increased electrolyte intake, but these are uncommon and require medical evaluation and diagnosis. A safe way to keep vitamins, minerals and electolytes balanced is by eating a varied clean diet and taking whole food multivitamins.
