These 3 Minerals Can Work Wonders for Your Body
Looking after your body can mean a number of different things to different people, whether it’s completing a great workout or eating a healthy diet. For many of you, looking after your body might also include a self-care routine too. At Westlab, we have a range of bath salts that can help your body to recover, relax and detoxify, with a number of natural ingredients that can do wonders for your body, and also your mind.
Your body needs key vitamins and minerals to function properly, most of which you can get from eating a balanced diet. However, there’s no harm in looking for other sources to ensure your body’s mineral levels are replenished, as it can have a positive effect on your physical health and also your mental wellbeing.
So, with that in mind we take a look at just 3 of the minerals that can make a big difference.
Magnesium plays a huge role in many different areas of the body, and is responsible for a number of processes that helps your body to function day-to-day. Specifically, magnesium can support muscle and nerve function, and energy production.
Magnesium is found naturally in rocks and seawater, and can also be found in some food sources like spinach and nuts. It’s important to remember that your body doesn’t produce magnesium, and it’s less abundant in our diet due to modern farming methods, so getting it from other sources is beneficial as it needs constant replenishment.
The health benefits of magnesium are far-reaching, and there is a positive association between magnesium intake and bone mineral density. Magnesium can help your body to use vitamin D, which is good for strong bones. Overall, magnesium can be crucial in protecting metabolic health, stabilising your mood and promoting better sleep.
If it’s sleep you’re hoping to improve, try our Magnesium Flakes which can help to calm the mind and body in order to promote a healthier sleeping pattern.
Calcium is most commonly found in dairy products, but it’s also present in natural mineral salts. Calcium is an essential mineral for helping to regulate your skin’s health and maintain the integrity of the skin barrier.
You’ll find calcium in our Dead Sea bath salt making it the perfect choice for anyone with dry or sensitive skin.
Potassium is another incredibly beneficial mineral for your body, and amongst its many benefits it helps to balance and regulate the amount of water in the skin cells.
Potassium is present in both our Himalayan and Dead Sea bath salts. Our Himalayan bath salt contains Potassium amongst its 84 minerals, to help you maintain soft and healthy-looking skin.
