Ginger is a miraculous spice has been used medicinally for thousands of years, and offers anti-inflammatory, anti-ulcer and antioxidant activities. It is also considered one of the best detoxifying herbs, frequently recommended in cleansing programs and detox diets.
The detoxifying properties of ginger may be contributed to its high concentration of gingerol and shoga, which have anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic effects on the gastrointestinal system.
Using a powerful mineral base such as Epsom salts in a bathwater medium creates a process called reverse osmosis. This process pulls salt and harmful toxins out of the body and allows the magnesium and sulfates to enter into the body.
