The Benefits of Bromine Saltwater Systems

With the ever-increasing awareness and popularity of Dead Sea Salt and the benefits associated with it, many people contact us with questions regarding how it relates to them getting more out of their hot tub or swim spa experience. Most people have heard something about the legendary fame of the Dead Sea and the world-renowned health and relaxation benefits for the body and mind that come from bathing in its special salty waters. After all, the world’s elite have been journeying there to soak in its amazing waters for thousands of years. Genesis TRU BLU salt is 99% pure sodium bromide, one of the main salts found in the Dead Sea, and bromide salt has been shown to increase muscle relaxation and comfort (see below). Genesis TRU BLU comes from the Dead Sea near Be’er Sheva, Israel. A Genesis BLU FUSION system on your spa isn’t just the best way to keep your water pristinely clean, it’s the best warm water relaxation to rejuvenate your body and spirit!

But don’t take our word for it. Here is what the experts have to say:

The following is an excerpt from “Why are Dead Sea salts beneficial?” – by Amy K. McNulty, Ph.D.

“…Bromides act to ease muscle stiffness and relax muscles. Sodium is important for the lymphatic fluid balance (this in turn is important for immune system function). So we can see that bathing in high quality sea salt could replenish the minerals which are critical to our skin metabolism.

Studies have been conducted on the health benefits of bathing in Dead Sea salts. One such study was conducted by Dr. I. Machtey on 103 patients suffering from osteoarthritis and tendinitis. Patients were either treated with baths of 7.5%, 2% or 0.5% Dead Sea salt concentration. Improvement was found after as little as one week of treatment for those treated with 7.5% or 2% salt baths. By the study’s end, 80% of the patients reported less pain; 70% experienced improved mobility and 60% were able to decrease their use of analgesics.

Dr. J. Arndt studied the effect of Dead Sea salt baths on psoriasis. Fifty patients were treated for 3-4 weeks, taking 3-4 baths each week. In as little as one week, many patients treated with a 10% salt concentration in their baths experienced marked improvement. This improvement included relief from itching, sleep disturbances, and skin scaling. Treatment with Dead Sea salts is not associated with any side effects.”
