Dead Sea salt contains the highest mineral concentration of any substance on the planet. Known for its medicinal qualities, it contains Potassium, Bromides, Calcium, Magnesium. The bromide concentration in the Dead Sea is the highest of all waters on Earth. Bromides help relax and ease muscular aches and pains as well as aiding with the natural repair of the body. Potassium improves oxidation and helps regulate the electrical process of muscles, playing a major role in regulating muscle contractions and the nervous system. It is also vital in assisting cells to absorb nourishment and expel waste products. An imbalance in potassium often leads to water retention and muscle cramping. Epsom Salts by comparison contain less than 0.04% potassium and no bromides. Calcium, if deficient during endurance events, may produce high blood pressure, muscle cramps and weakness. Magnesium deficiencies contribute to muscle cramps, tremors and sleep disturbances. Impurities can clog up the skin’s breathing system, which can be remedied through cleansing with Dead Sea Bath Salts, while also replenishing fluids and electrolytes.
