Dead Sea mud is packed with healing minerals and vitamins collected from the bottom of the Dead Sea, which is cradled between the holy lands of Israel and Jordan. Often Dead Sea mud is used to treat symptoms of psoriasis and eczema, as studies have indicated that its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory benefits appear to alleviate uncomfortable symptoms associated with both disorders. Sources also say that Dead Sea mud contains high levels of magnesium, which might elevate skin’s moisture content. It has also illustrated promising results for soothing conditions of dry skin by nearly 30-percent, according to researchers. Bromide is an active mineral in Dead Sea mud said to repair skin and encourage healing by stimulating white-blood cell reactions. Other beneficial compounds said to be in Dead Sea mud are: copper, calcium, iron, selenium, zinc and sulfur, among many others.
