Epsom salt is named after the saline spring at Epsom in Surrey, England where it was discovered. Epsom salt is a naturally occurring mineral compound composed of magnesium and sulfate, hence it is also called magnesium sulfate.
As a dietary supplement
Magnesium plays an array of roles in the body. It helps to regulate enzymes that facilitate various functions in the body.*
While bones and teeth are heavily reliant on calcium to maintain structure and strength, calcium absorption is enhanced by magnesium. It also helps to regulate heartbeat and blood pressure levels. And sulfates help to improve nutrient absorption.*
As a laxative
Magnesium sulfate increases the amount of water in the intestines, thereby encouraging elimination for occasional constipation relief. This product generally produces bowel movements within 30 minutes to 6 hours after use.*
Directions for use as saline laxative: Take up to 15 capsules, or as directed by a health professional, and make sure to drink one glass (8 fl. oz.) or more of water each time.
As a liver and gallbladder cleansing aid
Magnesium sulfate relaxes and dilates the gallbladder, allowing the release of hardened mineral or cholesterol deposits. Paired with olive oil, these impurities are expelled from the body. We have Epsom salt in capsules so you no longer have to suffer the horrid taste of an Epsom salt solution. Each Liver Flush requires four portions of 15 capsules or 60 capsules total. Please see Liver Cleanse directions.
Warning: Before using Magnesium Sulfate you can perform this test in order to reduce your anxiety and risk of allergic reactions or hypermagnesemia. This test is not part of the liver flush. Do it the week before you do the liver flush.
Test: Start with one capsule and observe your reaction. The next day take 5 capsules and then 10 capsules the following day and so forth, until you get diarrhea. This product generally produces bowel movement in ½ to 6 hours by increasing water in intestine.
Adverse Effects Directions: If you get nauseous, vomiting or weak it may be a sign of hypermagnesemia. In that case discontinue use, call a doctor or go to the Emergency Room. Also drink a lot of water in order to aid in the elimination of excess magnesium. In case of overdose, get medical help or contact Poison Control Center right away.
Do not take if: Do not take if younger than 16. Do not take if pregnant or breastfeeding. Do not take drugs 4 hours before or after taking this product and only after talking to your doctor.

Note: We offer plant-based tapioca capsules for those who do not wish to consume animal-based gelatin capsules. Many years ago, Dr. Hulda Clark decided to exclusively use gelatin capsules because she found the plant-derived capsules at that time were highly processed and exposed to pollutants. However, over the years the manufacturing of plant-based capsules has improved, and clean vegetarian capsules that conform to Dr. Clark’s standards of purity are now available. Made from fermented, organic tapioca, our vegetarian capsules provide the same benefits of gelatin-based capsules and have passed our rigorous testing for purity.
