Our culture has always been conscious of the power of the sea. "The sea cleanses us from all diseases" wrote the Greek poet Euripides already in the fifth century before Christ. The physician Hippocrates treated his patients with sea water. In ancient China, algae and sea water cures were a popular remedy. The medicinal values and the therapeutic effects of bathing in the sea has long been an integral part of medicine.
As a recent study made by the University of Alicante (UA) confirmed in collaboration with the pharmaceutical laboratory Quinton, salt water has properties that activate the human immune system and strengthen the protection mechanism of the organism against viruses, bacteria and other pathogens. Salt water contains minerals with oxygen free effect as selenium, silicon and zinc. Thus, filtered and heavily diluted sea water can even be understood as a vaccine against a number of diseases.
The sea water is a treasure trove of minerals and trace elements such as magnesium, selenium, calcium and iodine. Since the salt concentration of sea water is higher than that of human blood, the body takes the ingredients particularly well. Particularly for skin diseases, rheumatism and respiratory diseases, the positive effect of the sea has been repeatedly confirmed. The sea water contains 89 elements that are represented in our organism, vitamins and micro-organisms come from the plankton that release virus inflammatory, antibacterial and hormonal substances.
Bathing in the waves (the perfect hydromassage) promotes relaxation and well-being that lasts for hours, allowing a relaxed sleep.
