Anyone who has taken the time out to soak in a bath full of high-quality bath salts will be able to speak to the overall sense of well-being it provides. But while you may be attributing the regenerative calmness you experience to the act of relaxing in the peaceful confines of your bathroom for 20 minutes or so, it’s actually the salt content of your bath that’s doing both your mind and body a world of good.
Our sodium and potassium levels play an important role in the healthy functioning of our mind, body and skin. This is regulated by the adrenal gland that is connected to our kidneys, the organ responsible for the control of around 28 chemicals in our bodies and much of the detoxification processes our bodies go through. When our levels are out of balance, it’s common to experience illness, ailments and skin irritations of varying severities.
Powerful Dead Sea Salts have the ability to return our sodium and potassium levels to a healthy balance by helping to replace or remove electrolytes from our body. But any old bath salt won’t do the trick.
We proudly stock Bokek Dead Sea Salt, an all-natural and extremely high-quality salt directly from the shores of the Dead Sea in Israel. It’s unrefined and produced simply by evaporating water from the Dead Sea, one of the saltiest bodies of water on Earth.
What sets Dead Sea salts apart from regular bath salts is their incredibly high mineral count. Bokek’s Dead Sea Salt boasts 10 times more minerals than regular sea salt making it a useful addition to the treatment regimens of people suffering from things like acne, eczema, dandruff, dry skin, arthritis and more.
These powerful minerals include:
Sulphur plays many roles in our bodies including helping convert toxins into non-toxins, synthesising collagen for healthy hair, skin, nails and muscle tissue, facilitating the absorption of carbohydrates and vitamins and allowing our cells to breath.
Vital for cell metabolism, Chlorine helps to maintain our bodies balance of acids and alkalines.
Iodine is an important mineral that is vital for providing energy and cell metabolism. It’s also necessary for the production of the hormone thyroxin.
Potassium helps to maintain our bodies water balance for cell metabolism to take place so our cells can expel waste and absorb nourishment.
Similar to Potassium, Sodium helps keep our cells working hard at absorbing vital nutrients and detoxing waste.
Calcium is necessary for promoting healthy teeth, bones and skin through its ability to strengthen cell membranes. It’s also good a regulating heart muscles and nerves.
Popular amongst athletes, Magnesium helps our bodies to absorb a plethora of other vitamins and minerals and aids in the relaxation of muscles by providing energy through electrolytes that preventing cramping.
Bromine can be used as a natural antibiotic as it aids the natural repair cycles of the body and supports cell metabolism.
