Applying creams or ointments containing Dead Sea minerals achieves twin objectives. Firstly, it replenishes the body’s mineral levels, including calcium and magnesium, which make the bones stronger and alleviate the effects of bone diseases.

Magnesium is a major player in our digestion processes, as it activates enzymes. There are over 300 reactions in our body that require enzyme efficiency, affecting other crucial functions within our digestive system, such as the breakdown of fatty acids. As our body only naturally contains 25 mg of magnesium, the acquisition of additional sources of magnesium are found 50% in the brain, and the remainder residing in muscle, soft tissues, and bodily fluids. Intake of magnesium at recommended levels is best indicated to you by your doctor or a healthcare practitioner. In more substantial doses, and via food intake, magnesium has shown positive effects on heart health and regulation of blood pressure.
