The Dead Sea is located 1,412 feet below sea level. It is known as the lowest point on earth. Another fun fact about the Dead Sea is that it is 997 feet deep, which means it is the world’s deepest hypersaline lake. Approximately 9.6 times saltier than any ocean, it the saltiest water body in the world.
The list of interesting facts about the Dead Sea can go on and on. It has been viewed as a miracle since the early Judaean periods. Completely opposed to its name, the Dead Sea is neither dead nor a sea. It is a saltwater lake that is alive and teeming with millions of different micro bacteria. The salts, minerals, and micro-bacteria combine to form products that are brimming with both health and beauty benefits.
The minerals that the Dead Sea’s mud and water possess have scientifically-verified healing properties. The potassium content in the water helps in moisturizing and rejuvenating the body and skin in recovery after strenuous exercise. When combined with bromide, potassium also helps in relieving joint and muscle tension. The sodium content in the water can boost immunity, the calcium chloride can strengthen nails and bones, and the magnesium content can rejuvenate skin. This is the reason why droves of tourists flock to the Dead Sea every year.
