Our brine pools contain up to 600 kg of dissolved Epsom salt, also known as magnesium sulphate (MgSO₄). Magnesium and sulphates are important for the body’s biochemistry. In many cultures, magnesium sulphate is used in traditional medicine and is the basis of many spa treatments (e.g. “Dead Sea”). Besides cosmetic skincare, magnesium sulphate is also used for much wider spectrum of benefits. Among other things, magnesium reduces inflammation, regulates the processing of certain enzymes and has a positive impact on the functioning of the nerves and muscles. Magnesium can be absorbed and metabolised far better through the skin than through diet. Sulphate plays a role in the structuring of brain tissue and proteins in the joints. It aids the body with detoxification and helps with the absorption of nutrients. Using brine pools has a positive effect on the skin, cardiovasular system, metabolism, hormonal functions, kidneys and muscles. So bathing in highly concentrated Epsom salt is an absolute treat for the body.
