Can you "taste" the Mg after an epsom salt bath?

I've realized that my mouth tastes salty about 5 minutes soaking in a Mg bath. Does anyone else experience this? Could it be an issue w/r/t too much Mg?

I have been taking 400 mg of Mg Citrate most nights, so I thought I was OK. I haven't been having my "normal" daily broth for the last 4 weeks, though, so thought I'd better supplement a little with baths...plus they do make me sleep much better.

It sounds like it. Since you're that sensitive, if it tastes good to you, maybe you are low in magnesium. Do you also take a magnesium supplement? I enjoy a cup of natural calm every night. I'm not sure what foods are high in magnesium... maybe brazil nuts?

Less than a cup and I usually taste it within 5 mins of a 20 min soak (gotta love the candles and some Michael Buble to lower my cortisol). BUT, I do drive my docs crazy with being able to distinguish minor chemical changes in my body. Maybe I'm just more aware/sensitive?

I don't find this either and I do have a lot of epsom salt baths.

I haven't noticed anything either, but I'll pay better attention next time.

I don't experience this but am so curious to see if other do and what they attribute it to.

I take baths with epsom salt: usually about 2 cups of salt per bath. I don't notice any salty taste.

How much salt do you normally put in your bath?
