Bath Salt and Weight Loss

Bath salt has been around for many years. It is said to be the fountain of youth secret of the Egyptians. It is also referred to as 'rich salt' 'organic salt'. The substance has gained popularity over the years and is now found all over the world.

Many brands of bath salts are sold on the Internet today. These products come in different forms, with some stronger than others.

Just as we are told to avoid drinking strong brine when we are trying to lose weight, we should avoid too much of it in our bathwater. The manufacturers say the stronger the salt is, the better it will give you the effect.

Now, are there any health advantages to this? Yes, but only if you are trying to lose weight by taking in more calories than you are burning off, and drinking lots of water each day.

So how much bath salt should you take each day? First of all, you need to understand that too much of any nutrient can have detrimental and beneficial effects. This is true for salts as well.

While the brine used in food is good for you, it will quickly lose its potency over time. The same is true for most dietary supplements. Not all are effective long term.

When you use bath salt, the liquid will act like a de-energizing agent. You will probably notice that your energy level comes back, and your energy level helps with losing weight. Many people recommend taking it every other day, especially after a hard workout.

However, when you take a lot of salt, it has the opposite effect, and you might feel sluggish and dehydrated at the same time. However, the body will thank you for it, as your fat cells will not regenerate as rapidly, so you will actually lose some weight.

So is it really all that bad to drink too much of this in your normal form? The answer is no. If you feel you need to lose weight, you can make it easier for yourself by drinking the bath salt as soon as you wake up in the morning.

Your first meal will not be a healthy one, so if you want to keep your metabolism high, you will need to eat right in the morning. Try drinking it with something like fruit juice.

After you have eaten, add a teaspoonful of salt to your morning water, and then drink the rest of your water in the bathroom sink, after you take a shower. This way, you will be getting the benefits of the salt, without actually having to drink the salt itself.

When you try to lose weight, you need to watch how much salt you are adding to your diet, and also how much salt you are taking in your normal form. Remember, the benefit is from the amount you take in, not the salt content.
