Epsom Salt Gains Exposure as Essential Recovery Method for Olympic and Celebrity Athletes

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct 27, 2016 /Endurance Sportswire/ — Glory doesn’t have to be so painful. Epsom salt soaks have proven to be an excellent method of recovery for athletes of all levels. During the 2016 Rio Olympic Games several athletes shared their love of Epsom Salt recovery.

Olympic gold medalist, Simone Biles, tweeted during her training for the games that, “Epsom salt baths are key.”

Hollywood has also been utilizing the practice as several Dancing with the Stars contestants have reported soaking in Epsom Salts to soothe their aching muscles.

“When I come home, my family gives me the face of sympathy and I crawl up the stairs to take a bath for three hours. I probably own stock in Epsom salts now,” said Leah Remini, Dancing with the Stars season 17 dancer and the star of the hit sitcom King of Queens.

San Francisco Salt Company, a trusted leader in the Epsom Salt industry, unveiled their newest product line, EPSOAK® SPORT this month. Formulated specifically for athletes, the core ethos of the EPSOAK SPORT system is Train Hard, Recover Easy. Their time-tested quality Epsom Salt blends enable optimum recovery from muscle aches and pains after the challenges of training or competition.

SF Salt Company uses only premium-grade Epsom salt (Magnesium Sulfate) in their EPSOAK SPORT, which is available in three formulas: Pure Unscented, Soothing, and Energizing. Pure Unscented is made of pure Epsom salt and is beneficial in relieving muscle pain, cleansing pores and detoxifying the body. Soothing is a lavender-infused Epsom salt blend, ideal for restoration and relaxation. Energizing is an awakening and invigorating Epsom salt blend infused with eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils.

Tim Ferriss, author of The 4-Hour Body and star of The Tim Ferriss Show has added SF Salt Company’s Epsoak Epsom Salt to his list of 10 Favorite Products in 10 Months.

“Athletes are looking for ways to recover quickly after vigorous workouts. They need ample, but rapid recovery in order to maintain high levels of performance, train hard, and see results,” says San Francisco Salt Company’s president Lee Williamson. “We created EPSOAK SPORT so that our customers—whether world-class athletes or weekend warriors—can rely on a natural method to soothe their muscles, decrease soreness, prevent injury, and get back to their sport of choice.”

EPSOAK SPORT is currently available in 8.5lb canisters and will be available in additional size options this fall. For more information, visit:  www.epsoaksport.com
