Dead Sea Salts - Have been renowned for their therapeutic effects since ancient times. The structure of the Dead Sea salt is quite unique; comprising magnesium, potassium and calcium chlorides, in addition to a high concentration of bromides. Moreover, the Dead Sea minerals are natural, pure, non-chemical, and non-pharmaceutical. Why are these types of salts beneficial? Magnesium is important for combating stress and fluid retention, slowing skin aging and calming the nervous system. Calcium is effective at preventing water retention, increasing circulation and strengthening bones and nails. Potassium energizes the body, helps to balance skin moisture and is a crucial mineral to replenish following intense exercise. Bromides act to ease muscle stiffness and relax muscles. Sodium is important for the lymphatic fluid balance (this in turn is important for immune system function). So we can see that bathing in high quality sea salt could replenish the minerals which are critical to our skin metabolism. Studies have been conducted on the health benefits of bathing in Dead Sea salts, with patients experiencing marked improvement, including relief from osteoarthritis and tendonitis with increased mobility and reduced pain leading to a decline in their use of analgesics. Dead Sea salt baths also helped with psoriasis, decreasing the effects of itching, sleep disturbances, and skin scaling. Furthermore, treatment with Dead Sea salts is not associated with any side effects. Bringing the Dead Sea's properties right into the bathtub for relaxation and relief, the widely reputed soothing effects of the Dead Sea can now be enjoyed in the privacy of one's home. Now every bathtub, hot tub, jacuzzi and whirlpool can be a private spa, brimming with the widely reputed therapeutic benefits of Dead Sea salt and its life giving minerals, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year - whenever anyone, anywhere wants relief and relaxation.
