Dead Sea Mud


The beneficial properties of Dead Sea clay lie in its high salinity (salt content). As is known, the composition of therapeutic mud is similar to the composition of water. And in the water of the Dead Sea there are more than three decades of mineral salts, including sulfates, sulfides, chlorides and bromides of potassium, calcium, magnesium, manganese, sodium, sulfur, phosphorus, silicon, zinc, copper, iron.

Magnesium and sodium salts stimulate intracellular metabolism and synthesis of amino acids; manganese compounds improve local blood circulation; calcium ions reduce the permeability of cell membranes and the sensitivity of skin nociceptors; bromine and zinc ions have antimicrobial properties.

Among the main beneficial properties of Dead Sea mud (i.e., sulphide mud sediment), specialists note their bactericidal effect, which is manifested in the ability of humic substances (formed during millennia of permanent chemical and microbiological processes) ions to bind to various inorganic substances and pathogenic cells. This leads to the neutralization of toxins and the death of microbes and pathogenic bacteria.

And although sulphide mud - the black clay of the Dead Sea - does not have a high content of organic substances, the color indicates the participation of microorganisms in its formation. This mud acquires a black color as a result of the fact that during the metabolism of sulfide anaerobic bacteria, all sulfuric acid compounds (sulfates) are converted into hydrogen sulfide. And hydrogen sulfide reacts with many metals, including iron, under conditions of high concentration. The end product of this reaction is hydrous iron sulfide - hydrotrolite, which is why the Dead Sea mud is so black.
