Minerals for Beauty & Wellness

The beauty and wellness benefits of mineral pools are attracting more pool owners to choose this type of pool over other options. Mineral pools have been found to help improve circulation, ease pain, relieve stress, as well as being gentler on the skin. The health benefits of mineral pools are extensive.

One of the major benefits of having a mineral pool is that it can help relax your muscles – a perfect solution if you need to relax after exercising or just a long week at work.

Relaxes muscles

Increasing magnesium in the body can help relieve muscle tightness, cramps or aches. Magnesium controls muscle contraction and acts as a muscle relaxant, so if you regularly suffer from muscular aches and pains, it could be a sign of magnesium deficiency.

Did you know that many people are magnesium deficient? But absorbing magnesium chloride through the skin is one of the most effective ways your body can maintain a healthy level of magnesium.

Soft, silky feeling

If you don’t like how you skin and hair feel after swimming in a chlorine or salt water pool, then a mineral pool might be the option for you. Many pool owners notice a significant difference in how the water feels when they switch to a mineral pool and this is thanks to the borates contained within. Borates enhance your comfort level while swimming and also provide that soft silky feeling as you move through the water by removing ultra-fine particles and preventing the pH from rising.

Acquatherepe is an industry leading product available from Poolwerx and contains magnesium, potassium, sodium chloride and borates. The combination of these minerals has several benefits for swimmers.

Detoxify skin & nervous system

Sodium chloride, magnesium and potassium are essential to the functioning of several body organs and can help detoxify your body. As mentioned above, absorbing magnesium chloride through the skin is extremely effective way to help relax your muscles, but also helps your skin. Some of the benefits of magnesium on your skin include:

  • It is an anti-inflammatory agent
  • Soothe the skin, relieving those with sensitive skin
  • Detoxify the skin and body, by way of relaxing the nervous system.
  • Restores skin elasticity and moisture to skin to help with dryness or inflammation

How to Fix a Green Pool After Rain With heavy rainfall, the chemicals in your pool can become unbalanced; your pH levels altered and your chlorine, salt and mineral content diluted. In addition, leaves, dirt and algae spores get delivered into your pool water and can decompose, causing phosphates to be deposited into your water. Combined with sunlight, these conditions are perfect for algae and other contaminants to grow and affect the health of your pool, turning it green overnight. If your pool has turned green after a rainstorm, it could be because there is algae growing in your pool water. If this is the case, consider visiting your local Poolwerx for a free water test and pick up some Vitalyse Poly Plus Algaecide.
