More than 15-million years old and more than a thousand feet below sea level, the Dead Sea is the world’s saltiest body of water—nearly 10 times saltier than the ocean. Alongside being incredibly rich in salt, the Dead Sea is also known for being the lowest point on Earth. It has been known since Biblical times for the healing and rejuvenating properties of its richly concentrated salts and minerals. The hot and dry conditions of this region that lies between Israel and Jordan leads to large quantities of water evaporating. This leads to the plethora of minerals becoming more and more hypertonic and concentrated. Mineralgia has formulated from these natural minerals into a unique and highly effective pain-relief cream that soothes stress, reduces swelling, and helps the body heal.
The Science Behind Dead Sea Healing:
Salt (sodium chloride) is a hypertonic mineral that acts as a magnet to inflammation. When externally applying salt to an area of pain, it attracts the excess water out of the cells, reducing inflammation. Because Mineralgia is a hypertonic solution and skin is porous, an osmotic gradient is produced and this process takes place. This means that Mineralgia not only reduces pain and discomfort superficially, but also effectively treats the root cause of the pain.
